[TOS] Return to Tomorrow

[TOS] Season 2, Episode 20 (Netflix: S2 E20):  Return to Tomorrow

Return to tomorrow

Rating: 2

This episode is pretty slow, but it has its positives. I like the theme of temptation of power, and exploration. The story involves super advanced aliens that can see and hear things miles away, outside of their planet. But it’s also about one of them trying to betray another, which could be foiled by someone just listening to them in the next room. The capabilities of the aliens makes things a little confusing, but the themes still come across.

    With all their powers and intellect the best Sargon and the rest could do was encase themselves in small plastic balls?
