Corbett's episode of Star Trek, "Metamorphosis," in which he plays the stranded early astronaut Zefram Cochrane, is one of the most moving entries in the original series, and is crucial for the mythos, since Cochrane will show up more than once in future Trek projects (played by James Cromwell).
Lockwood's episode, "Where No Man Has Gone Before," is also important, because it was the second pilot, and the first with William Shatner. Lockwood's character, Lieutenant Commander Gary Mitchell, is well-remembered, and he crops up often in fan fiction and videos.
The first pilot, "The Cage," had featured Jeffrey Hunter as Captain Christopher Pike, and like "Metamorphosis," has had a long afterlife and many reverberations in the canonical Star Trek universe.
