Actually, Robert April was the first captain of the Enterprise NCC-1701, although he was never seen on camera.

The original "Star Trek" pilot, "The Cage," was later used (with a framing device) in the two-part original series episode "The Menagerie." But if you're reading this page, you probably knew that already.

April appeared on-screen in the animated series, which is generally not considered to be canon. I've found no reference to him being mentioned in a canon production; neither have I found one stating that his status as first captain of the NCC-1701 Enterprise has been contradicted in the canon.

He's a great actor, but I was hoping for a bigger name....maybe their budgets running low so they settled on him.

Actually, I think Jonathan Archer was the first captain of the "Starship" Enterprise!(Yeah, you did qualify it with NCC-1701; Archer commanded the NX-01.) I'm not even going to attempt to consider the Space Shuttle Enterprise, or aircraft carrier Enterprise, or ....
