Speculation Edit

I question the origin of the supposition that the "Orion colony" which Pike mentions to Dr. Boyce is the same as the location where Pike later has visions of seeing Vina, as an Orion slave girl, dance. It seems pretty clear to me that Roddenberry intended the illusory site to be actually Orion, as it is in the script, with the word "colony" likely being added to Orion for the discussion scene late in the writing of the script, a possibility which is suggested by The Making of Star Trek (p. 92), in which Harvey P. Lynn can be seen to have sent Roddenberry a proposal that "Orion" (note, not "Orion colony") be changed to HR 8832. --Defiant 03:51, August 8, 2011 (UTC)

Cut line Edit

I removed the following:

  • Pike's illusory guest's remark–"It's funny the way they are here. They actually like being taken advantage of"–is one of several pieces of "The Cage" not edited into "The Menagerie". The visuals of the fantasized colony scene, however, are used in their entirety.

I'm not really sure of the relevance of the cut line to this article, which is about a place. As for the second bit, that's probably better noted by just citing "The Menagerie" as a reference.–Cleanse ( talk | contribs ) 04:37, August 8, 2011 (UTC)

Probably "The Menagerie, Part II", if we want to be more precise. --Defiant 04:43, August 8, 2011 (UTC)
