I'd give this episode(s) 5 stars except for the reason the main story (The Cage) got incorperated into it, the Trial of Spock. Not only was it a sad excuse to re-view Capt. Pike's adventure but uses something a more perfect future should be done with - lawyers!
I realize that the story needed a context for the present Enterprise crew to contemplate Pike's story but Spock could have kidnapped Pike and explained the back story to audience in flashbacks during the trip (as an example). Even a battle scene where Kirk has to stop Spock from landing on Talos IV would have been great (oops! sorry, no decent special effects then).
Only the confrontation between Kirk and Spock should have been left alone.
p.s. ST:TOS also played the lawyer card in Court-Martial, a lame excuse for a story. ST:TNG had at least four court-cases, played out to predictable endings.
Among them:
1) Data is saved from a scientist who wants to dis-assemble him.
2) Riker is falsely accused of murder.
3) In The Drumhead an out of control witch hunt is stopped when the lawyer looses it!
4) A Society is freed from an alien posing as "their god".
Each case (no pun intended) was a better excuse than in "The Menagerie".

This two part episode based on pilot #1, in which Spock is in the hot seat, is difficult to evaluate separately from 'The Cage.' Overall, the team did a good job of generating an episode 'without' another episode. On the other hand, the main thing going for the episode is The Cage. And it is better just to watch The Cage as it was intended, without all the artificial breaks. As noted by another reviewer, it isn't just the breaks in The Cage that are awkward; the need for breaks in The Menagerie also made for some awkward moments. So ultimately this episode was a clever way of presenting 'The Cage', and not a lot more. The two exceptions: 1) it is interesting to see the extent of Spock's loyalty, and 2) the return of Pike to Talos IV was a nice touch. (2.5 stars for the Menagerie components alone, 3.5 overall)

The only two part episode of TOS in which Spock goes on trial for kidnapping his old captain Christopher Pike to take him to the forbidden world of Talos IV.

Volume 8 of the Star Trek DVD collection contains the series only 2 part episode. THE MENAGERIE is easily one of the series best dramas and also easily one of the best episodes of the first season. Creator Gene Roddenberry made a very clever move in this episode. Using the footage from the (at the time) un-seen pilot episode THE CAGE, he made an episode that revolved around Captain Pike.
The MENAGERIE takes place 13 years after the events that occured in THE CAGE. Spock was a crew member aboard the USS Enterprise during Cpt. Pike's command. However now Pike is severely crippled from a freak accident when he was saving some children. He is still the same person he once was only trapped inside a useless body, a vegetable if you will. When they arrive on a planet Spock and Kirk meet up with Pike after many years. Spock kidnaps Pike and sets the Enterprises course to Rigel IV the forbidden planet. He is arrested and sent to court for a court martial for disobeying Kirk orders. Spock explains why he is doing this and during the court shows footage that occured 13 years ago. If Spock is not guilty he will be able to continue his assignment if he is Kirk will be forced to find him guilty and the Vulcan will be court martialed.
THE MENAGERIE was a wonderful episode that ranks as one of the series most complex plots. Partly because it is a two parter but the best thing about this was Roddenberry was finally able to put some of the unused footage from THE CAGE to use. Although the run of THE CAGE here is quite disjointed it gives you the basic jist of the plot. It also features the famous bulb head aliens that treat human like zoo animals.
Overall Volume 8 is a essential 2 part Trek episode that must be seen. It is great to see Cpt. Pike again even though he is terribly scarred and says nothing. Still this DVD is one of the collections finest. Highly recommended!

this is one of the best original series episodes.it shows scenes from "the cage" star treks unscreened pilot episode which starred jeffery hunter as captain christopher pike.this is very much a spock episode showing how much he cares about his captains.the injured pike is played by another actor [not jeffery hunter].it took about 6 hours to apply the makeup the actor wore.i myself think that the crew of pikes enterprise would make a good crew.but no bones.
