“All Those Who Wander”


In the season one finale, just as Captain Pike thinks he’s figured out how to escape his fate, he’s visited by his future self, who shows him the consequences of his actions.


When the Enterprise and the USS Cayuga provide supplies to an outpost by the Romulan Neutral Zone, Pike accidentally meets one of the cadets whom he will sacrifice himself for in the future and decides to send warnings to them to prevent the accident from happening.

He is visited by an older version of himself from a future where the accident does not happen, who shows Pike the consequences of this decision: seven years in the future, which depicts events resembling closely to The Original Series episode “Balance of Terror”.

The Enterprise sees a Romulan Bird of Prey starship destroy the outpost. They track it with support from the USS Farragut and Captain James T. Kirk, who suggests an aggressive approach, but Pike insists on negotiating. The Romulan commander agrees to a ceasefire, but his sub-commander summons an armada of Romulan warships that damage the Enterprise, severely injuring Spock, and declare war on the Federation.

In his own time, Pike accepts that his fate is necessary to save Spock and prevent war. His peace is interrupted by Captain Batel of the Cayuga, who boards the Enterprise and arrests Number One for being a genetically altered Illyrian.
