Late Sat Mid EST The Krotons movie
Time approximate after pledge drive. Peaceful robots find their efforts to escape the primitive planet of the Gonds threatened by a meddlesome Doctor and his companions Jamie and Zoe. The Doctor seems to think that channeling the intelligence of primitive natives and testing/eliminating the smartest ones to serve the higher needs of Kroton-kind is evil. The nerve of him - meddling in our robotic business. He must be eliminated.
