After a disastrous mission on Rigel VII, the U.S.S. Enterprise™ received a distress call from survivors of the S.S. Columbia on Talos IV. The landing party found a group of aging scientists and a young woman named Vina, who they claimed was born just before they crashed. But it was all an illusion created by the mentally powerful Talosians. They used Vina to trap Christopher Pike and try to entice him into becoming part of their menagerie. The Talosians forced Pike to live through several illusions with Vina, hoping to find one that would placate him. The most tempting illusion let Pike live out a personal fantasy -- trading in Orion animal women. Vina appeared to him as one of the slaves and performed an exotic dance. But Pike resisted the temptation. After discovering that the humans would rather die than be held captive, the Talosians released Pike and his ship. Vina, the only true survivor of the Columbia, remained with the Talosians. They showed Pike that she was actually a crippled old woman, but promised to restore her illusion of beauty."
