Two-time Emmy-winning director Robert Butler – at 91 the only non-actor creative still with us from "The Cage" – joins Larry Nemecek in a maxed-out room at San Diego Comic Con 2019. Discussions about the casting of "The Cage" plus Gene Roddenberry's inexperience as Star Trek's first pilot went before the cameras and how Butler sees the "new" Pike some 55 years later. It's a rare moment of history you don't want to miss!
