Christopher Pike is a fictional character in Star Trek. He appeared in the pilot episode The Cage as captain of the USS Enterprise, and was then played by Jeffrey Hunter. This pilot was rejected; another was made, and the character of Pike was dropped after Hunter decided that he did not want to continue with the franchise.
He also appeared in the episode The Menagerie, which recycled footage from the pilot episode and dealt with the consequences of Pike's actions in the pilot on the planet Talos IV. A crippling and disfiguring accident has left Pike, now a Commodore, confined to a wheelchair, and he was played by Sean Kenney in this second appearance. The character ended up living on Talos IV permanently, given the illusion of perfect health.
A shuttlecraft named the Pike was carried aboard the USS Enterprise-D.
