True Star Trek fans have known for decades that James T. Kirk wasn’t the first captain of the legendary starship Enterprise. As we learned in an episode of the original series called The Menagerie, that honor belonged to Christopher Pike. With Star Trek: Discovery being a prequel of sorts to the original series, we’re going to meet the young, pre-Enterprise Christopher Pike. Anson Mount will be playing the character, and we asked if he felt any pressure taking on the role of a man who figures so prominently in Star Trek lore.
