The Behind the Scenes Pic of the Day boldly goes where no BTS pic has gone before.

Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes Pic!

There are many Star Trek pictures featuring Gene Roddenberry floating around out there. I’ve run a couple in this very column. What makes today’s shot stand out is that it’s capturing a particularly special moment in Star Trek history: the first time Gene Roddenberry saw a built Starship Enterprise. You can see some of Rigel VII in the background as they shot the very first Captain Pike-led pilot, The Cage.

So, even before Kirk was sitting in the chair, creator met his creation and history was made, pop cultured forever altered when the Enterprise was introduced to its true captain.

Once again many thanks to the Practical Effects Group, specifically the very nice William Forsche, for making these bits of history public. Click to enlargen.

 

 

If you have a behind the scenes shot you’d like to submit to this column, you can email me at quint@aintitcool.com.

You’re not ready for tomorrow’s pic, but your kids are going to love it.
