Title: The Menagerie Part 2
Season: 1 Episode: 12

The second part of the Menagerie episode series. After The menagerie Part 1, Spock faces court martial for mutiny, for kidnapping Pike and for misleading The Enterprise to the forbidden planet of TALOS IV.

The Talosians take over the video screen on the ship and help Spock show why his intensions were good in nature. After finishing the video presentation of the memories from the first encounter between Starfleet and the Talosians, the latter shows that they were in control of the ship all this time and the presence of  the required members of Starfleet for court marshall was another illusion.

Commodore Mendez gathers all the available information and allows Kirk to decide what’s best for Starfleet, Pike and Spock. Kirk asks Pike and he decides to follow Spock’s plan and remain in Talos.

Like it happened in The Cage and in The Menagerie Part 1, the Talosians gave Pike the opportunity to live an ideal life in which his brain frees him from his ill reality.

“Pike has an illusion and you have a reality.
May you find your way as pleasant.”
