Portrait of a Character – Christopher Pike
Christopher Pike is a terrific character in any timeline.
I am still trying to figure out if I want Shelby Pike to be related to him. But why the hell not? Hell, maybe she should be.
Christopher Pike Origins
In the Original Series, he is a handsome, intelligent captain . He is just as impulsive as Kirk. But Pike has a tragic accident yet gets a kind of illusory happy ending. In the JJ Abrams universe, he dies heroically.
Like most of us, Pike does not consider what might happen if the unthinkable were to occur. But it does. In the prime universe, he is rather badly injured. Just how conscious and aware is he? I write him as being heartbreakingly conscious of the world around him. This is so much so that he flashes Morse code. It is better than any therapy when Nyota Uhura understands him.
There are no impediments to Christopher existing in the Mirror Universe.
Like many Mirror Universe men, I would have him sporting the Y Chromosome Skew. This would make him more powerful . He would be much more interested in women, but also a much better father.
There was a series of beeps. “He says,” Nyota explained, “that’s he’s very happy to have such beautiful company.”
Pike, like the main character in Johnny Got His Gun, deserves to return.
