TOS: S1 E12 The Menagerie, Part II

The complexity of Star Trek's production had steadily increased the show's production time, leading to concerns that Desilu Productions would not be able to deliver episodes to NBC in time to meet their series commitments. "The Menagerie" was created as a means to reuse footage from "The Cage" — the unaired 1965 pilot episode of Star Trek — within a frame story as the early history of the Enterprise. As such, the two-part episode only required a week of production time. Since it reused the scenes from The Cage, the same locations that were used to represent Talos IV, will be listed here.
