Added DiffLines:

* EverybodyLaughsEnding: Subverted. Kirk tries to lighten the mood by accusing Spock of 'flagrant emotionalism' and Spock responds with his customary offense, but the mood and music remain wistful as Spock wheels Captain Pike out of the room.
* OhCrap: The transmissions from Talos IV come to an abrupt halt, to Spock's dismay. It's only because the ship has entered orbit, and they resume soon after.

Apparently watching himself kill the Kaylar also killed Pike's energy level, as he's now sound asleep! Poor guy; he's had more activity in the past day and a half than he's probably had since his accident... Spock speculates, probably accurately, that the Talosians have stopped the images because they already know that Pike is fatigued. Mendez starts up with his impatient tendencies again by demanding answers to why the Talosians want Pike back so badly, but Spock insists that the answer is so unbelievable that Mendez must see it for himself in the currently-paused transmission...

* RetCon: The original ending of "The Cage" had the Talosians provide Vina with an illusion of Captain Pike to keep her company. This event was omitted from Spock's evidence, and the footage repurposed to represent the Talosians in the present day giving Pike the illusion of his health and youth again.

Despite how jubilant he must feel that his friend and science officer is off the hook, Kirk only gives a slight smirk, looking aside to Pike, perhaps knowing what the former Captain will want to do already. He's right; he didn't need to be a Talosian figure that out. Upon questioning, Pike beeps once; yes, he wants to go there. He asks Spock if he would like to escort Pike to the transporter room, to see him off; Pike just sits there, but if one looks closely enough, one could almost see him smiling inside, as evidenced by the "yes" beep when Spock thanks Kirk, for both of them.

But Spock insists there's more to it... but nothing is shown. Mendez asks for Pike's verdict; Pike beeps a long, perhaps conditional (but how will we know the conditions?), yes, guilty. Mendez also votes guilty as charged, and so, to no doubt Spock's shock and dismay, does his friend Captain Kirk, who fights to keep his face impassive and neutral.

neutral, has no choice but to do the same.



Kirk notes rather exasperatedly that even if the regulations were clear, Spock ''could've'' explained to his Captain, but Spock could not ask Kirk to face the death penalty as well. Just then, Uhura radios in with the very pleasing news that Mendez - the ''real'' Mendez, back on Starbase 11, has also received the same images from Talos IV that Kirk and Spock have been watching, and due to the historical significance of Pike and his mission, has decided to rescind General Order 7 just this once, and orders Kirk and Spock to proceed as they see fit.

Picking up again with the Orion slave market, Pike indeed looking as though he's about to give in to the 'narcotic' quality of illusion... [[spoiler: [[ForegoneConclusion but in the end he fought tooth and nail to get free]].]]

free]].



Kirk has one more parting repartee with Spock, wanting to discuss his flagrant emotionalism after delivering Pike; Spock claims the suggestion insults him, that he's been completely logical about the whole affair. About as logical as he'll be later on, when he reacts to [[spoiler: [[Recap/StarTrekS2E1AmokTime seeing Kirk alive after believing he killed him]]]]...
