I li9ke "Archons" for two reasons:
1) It's got a really
creepy atmosphere at times. The scenes of Kirk and crew being set upon by the relentless locals are kinda like a zombie movie and IMO the backlot shooting sells it even more.
2) I like the moral dilemma posed by the script. Is it better to have free-will and possible anarchy, or is it better to have that anarchic spirit controlled by the state? While the answer to that question might seem
obvious, I just really do like the way the show digests it in an entertaining way.
