Talosian 20KTalos IV has not been completely explored and the Stellar Fleet has furnished few newses to regard. The results of the contact with the inhabitants of this planet have classified. For order of the Secretariat of the Fleet, whoever enters contact with Talos IV for any reason, is passible of capital punishment.
The Talosians have strange power, and they are able to create illusions. They are dying out because they're so smart that they are bored silly. So they started a particular "zoo" where they have various races that they are studying to find a race able to succeed them after their dead.
Talosian head 12K First contact with Talosian was made by Captain Christopher Pike, his first officer Number One, and science officer Spock, They respond to a distress call on Talos IV, where they find the remaining crew of an earlier Earth exploration (on the USS Columbia) which crashed on the planet. The colonists are all aging (male) scientists except for Vina, who is a cute, blonde who was born around the time they crashed (about 18 years back). Pike refuses to live out any fantasies that the Talosians want him to (especially mating fantasies), so the Thalosians bring down Number One and another woman from the Enterprise. Second contact takes place 31 years after the USS Columbia crashed, which is 13 years after the crew of cpt. Pike visits the planet.
