The Enterprise travels to Beta III to learn the fate of the U.S.S. Archon, gone missing a century earlier. One member of the landing party disappears, and one returns in a strangely blissful state. Kirk beams down with another landing party; amidst the chaos of "Festival" their hosts asks if they are "Archons." To learn more, Kirk must convince Betan citizens to disobey Landru, the man who has ruled them for 6,000 years - or find those who already resist. But with the Lawgivers everywhere, that task is going to be difficult... Written by
Did You Know?
Kirk seems overly impressed with the projected image of Landru while in Reger's safe place. Spock tells Kirk it's a projection, and Kirk seems amazed that there is no receiving apparatus at their location. However, Kirk's own transporter aboard his ship can transmit matter and even living things across vast distances with no apparatus at the receiving end. See more
