Pike in hell

Pike's vision of Hell-Fire

Hell-Fire is a hellish, mythological location.

In his childhood, Christopher Pike once heard a fable in which Hell-Fire featured.

During his captivity on Talos IV in 2254, now-Captain Pike was subjected to an illusion of Hell-Fire. This simulation served as a punishment when he refused to cooperate with his Talosian jailers, specifically an instruction from The Keeper to consume a protein complex. (TOS: "The Cage", "The Menagerie, Part II")

No name for this location was ever provided on-screen. The name "Hell-Fire" comes from the second revised final draft script for "The Cage". In the same script draft (which involves Captain James Winter rather than Captain Pike), Hell-Fire is described in lines that read, "Winter finds himself writhing in bubbling, sulphurous [sic] brimstone, in a dark place obscured with smoke, flame licking at him from all sides."
The Hell-Fire set was on Stage 16 of Desilu's Culver City lot. [1]
