Similarities to other episodes:

________________________________________________

"The Menagerie" includes "The Cage" as a FLASHBACK
________________________________________________

"I, Mudd" is very similar, in the sense of referring to a
"gilded cage."
________________________________________________

Captain Pike acts like a "suicide-bomber terrorist." He
threatens to kill himself, along with as many of the
Talosians as he can take with him.

Captain Kirk also threatens to destroy the Enterprise, on
"Let That Be Your Last Battlefield."
