As I recall, Gene's original draft had Robert April as captain. He then changed the name to Christopher Pike. After the first pilot was filmed and rejected, and Jeff Hunter moved on, the role was rewritten and recast.

Gene still liked the name Robert April put him into the universe's history as Pike's predecessor.
