I’ve added Gary’s work as Lt. Cmdr Gary Mitchell in the second pilot to the classic STAR TREK episode Where No Man Has Gone Before. Though this was the second pilot, it is listed as episode three of the first season. This episode was commissioned after series creator Gene Roddenberry failed to sell the network on his first pilot The Cage starring Jeffrey Hunter as Captain Christopher Pike. The only ones to survive the original pilot were Leonard Nimoy (Mr. Spock) and Majel Barrett (Nurse Christine Chappel) who in the original played the part of Number One. Added as The Enterprise’s new captain was William Shatner (Captain James Kirk) who it was believed would add a bit more of a Horatio Hornblower feel to the show going forward. Gary’s part was rather significant in the episode, forging the way for such characters as Ricardo Montalban’s Khan Noonien Singh.
