The Columbia was a civilian vessel operated by the American Continent Institute, which crashed on planet Talos IV during a survey expedition in 2236, eighteen years before the arrival of the U.S.S. Enterprise NCC-1701[1] in 2254.[2][3] Only one person aboard, Vina, survived the crash.[1]

  3. The year that "The Cage" takes place, 2254, is derived from information given in "The Menagerie." Spock states that it has been 13 years since the incident on Talos IV, and that he served under Captain Pike for 11 years. Therefore, the episode is in the second year of Captain Kirk's five-year mission, which began in 2265, per the Star Trek: Voyager episode "Q2." Therefore, "The Menagerie" is set in 2267, and thirteen years prior to that is 2254.
