I had heard that is what the syndicate boss' were aiming for:
The Cage; very much a thought provoking but rejected pilot episode, dealing with manipulation of the mind. Boss reaction: don't like it!
Where No Man Has Gone Before; released second
pilot (I know but that is what it was
). Unknown situation where members of the crew exhibit God like Powers. There's a fist fight as well as a phaser rifle shoot-out (even a tombstone!). Boss reaction: love it!
