Default Captain Pike's Story

Anyone know more about Captain Pike and any reference to him in the movies, shows or novels? What's his story?

I just recently viewed the unaired pilot and loved the episode on TOS that told his story.

We know there is a Pike's Medal for Valor from Deep Space 9

There is an entire series of Comics called Early Voyages I believe that details how Pike came to command the Enterprise, how Spock ended up aboard, and so forth.

A TNG Shuttle was named Pike.

I learned a few things, myself!

Thank you so much, it was great finding out more about Capt. Pike. Really sad that Jeffrey Hunter died before he could play pike again. Interesting that he passed on the role after the first pilot but I can't Imagine Shatner not being on TOS and I'm glad he was Kirk and not recast as Pike.

Okay...Manda's avatar is the best!

I think we're going to learn a lot about Christopher Pike in this movie.

One thing -- if I were to write a TOS prequel, it would be Pike and his crew I'd use for the protagonists, since everything prior to The Cage, story-wise, is wide open.

I have a bad feeling that Pike is going to die in Star Trek XI. Any thoughts on this?

I think you may be on the same track as JJ Abrams... In fact, the time between The Cage and Kirk taking over the Enterprise is sort of "up for grabs" isn't it?

Is this just the only way you can see the end of the movie happening or something? I mean, there hasn't been any clue that Pike dies.
