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...

When Kirk interacts with a newly absorbed Dr. McCoy in the jailhouse, there are some quick flashes of retakes where Kirk's hair is completely parted towards the left, not towards the right as it normally is. Also strange is how he only addresses McCoy as "Doc" in this scene, and never by his trademark, "Bones". See more
When Kirk records his Captain's Log for star date 3157.4, he's in a holding cell without any Starfleet equipment, yet he enters his log, reporting on the attack of his ship. (Scott could have done this, but not Captain Kirk.) See more
You have come to a world without hate, without fear, without conflict, no war, no disease, no crime. None of the ancient evils. Landru seeks tranquility, peace for all, the universal good.
