The Cage is not the Menagerie, 2

An earlier post compared two Star Trek episodes (aired vs pilot) from the perspective of a secondary character, who happened to be female. Why do this? As I explained in an email,

My reading from Vina's point of view was mostly because The Cage/Menagerie is Pike's story and I thought she needed some attention.
In "The Cage" ending she gets to live life with a VR doll - I don't think Roddenberry cared about her end of the bargain.
I had a similar reaction on first seeing Groundhog Day - it's all about Bill Murray's maturation and development.
Within the logic of the story Andy McDowell essentially sleeps with him on the first date. Only we see all the steps it took for him to become a superhuman sexy beast.

These could be feminist readings but even an insensitive guy knows casually sexist plotting when he sees it.
