In the original pilot, the Second-in-Command was named “Number One”
Like Spock, the character was cold and logic-oriented. Unlike Spock, the
character was a woman, played by Majel Barrett, creator Gene Roddenberry’s
NBC didn’t like Number One (or the fact that Roddenberry - who was married –
had cast his mistress in the show), so Roddenberry changed the character to
Mr. Spock in the second pilot.
There was no Captain Kirk in the original Pilot. The Captain of the
Enterprise was Christopher Pike, played by Jeffrey Hunter.
Mr. Spock was in the first Pilot, but Spock's character differs somewhat
from that seen in the rest of Star Trek; he displays a youthful eagerness
that contrasts with the later more reserved and logical Spock. He also
delivers the first line in all of Star Trek: "Check the circuit!" followed
by, "Can't be the screen then."[
The weaponry used in the pilot also differs from that seen in the series
proper, identified as lasers rather than phasers, and different props are
used for the communicator and handheld weapon (which made the change to
"phasers" easy to retcon as an upgraded technology).
