Re: Robert Sawyer goes off on "Return of the Archons"

"Archons" is my go-too example of Trek's taking "Hodgkin's Law" too far. I appreciate that the show had a limited budget and time, but little details like simply having the faces on the clocks have a different arrangement of numbers (say, 10 instead of 12) would have added a little much needed "we're not in Kansas anymore" to the proceedings. The same is true of second season planet of hats episodes like Patterns of Force.
