3 thoughts on “Five Major TV Characters Who Didn’t Debut Until Right AFTER the Pilot

  1. i think DeForest Kelley didn’t join the cast of Star Trek until after the pilot episode “Where No Man Has Gone Before”. (Which, famously, was the second pilot made for Star Trek, the one that ultimately led to the series and the ongoing franchise.)

    In any case, Kelley’s Dr. McCoy was doubtlessly a major character to the show.

  2. Neither McCoy nor Uhura were in either of the pilots for TOS. The doctor in the second pilot, Where No Man Has Gone Before was a guy named Boyce.
