character in the Star Trek franchise
Captain Christopher "Chris" Pike is a character in the Star Trek science fiction franchise. He was portrayed by Jeffrey Hunter in the original Star Trek pilot episode, "The Cage", as captain of the USS Enterprise. When this pilot was rejected, Hunter withdrew from the series, and Pike was replaced with Captain James T. Kirk (William Shatner). The subsequent Star Trek episode "The Menagerie" uses footage from "The Cage" within a framing story, featuring Sean Kenney as an older, scarred and disabled Pike. Bruce Greenwood portrays a version of Pike in the films Star Trek (2009) and Star Trek Into Darkness (2013), which takes place in an alternative timeline. The second season of Star Trek: Discovery, which is set before "The Menagerie" but after "The Cage", has Pike (now played by Anson Mount) assume temporary command of the USS Discovery.
