RETURN OF THE ARCHONS

Original Airdate: February 9th, 1967

Guest Starring:
Torin Thatcher, Brioni Farrell, Sid Haig and Charles Macaulay as Landru

THE PLOT:

While exploring a planet where a ship vanished a hundred years prior, they discover a planet controled by the mysterious Landru. Who has brainwashed everyone who is not of the body. Sulu is beamed up "absorbed" into the body which makes him one of them.

To find a cure and the truth behind Landru, Kirk and the others beam down to the planet during a time of rape and riot called Festival. Can Kirk discover who or what Landru truely is and the connection to the ancient ship or will he be absorbed into the body?

THE OPINION:

This is a pretty compelling epsiode, never dull and raises some interesting questions about confomity. Which is relevent today as it was way back when. Landru is cool in that evil twisted Televangelist kind of way. The Lawgivers are cool. Let's face it, this is a cool episode that makes you think.
