The captain of the starship Enterprise in the pilot episode for the original series was one Christopher Pike.

Captain Pike's name was later given to a Star Fleet award bestowed upon Benjamin Sisko, captain of Deep Space Nine.

Sisko is well known for turning a bad situation round, which is as good a reason as any for taking a quick visit to Turnpike Lane.

What's there?

Well lets be honest. Turnpike Lane isn't the most exciting place we could find on the tube map. But if you like lots of shops, some looking slightly tatty, this really is the place to go.

Where next?

Right. You've got a choice now. You could hop on a Southbound Piccadilly Line train until Kings Cross St. Pancras, then change onto a Northern Line train going up the Edgware branch to Brents Cross.

Alternatively, you could just get a bus there instead. Look, yes I know that getting on a bus is completely at odds with the concept of a tube tour, but it's your choice. You can either do it properly and spend an hour of so
rushing around on goodness knows how many tubes, or you could get one
ickle-little bus.
