Witnessing the explosion of a spaceship - personally saboptaged by federation supreme commander Servalan (Jacqueline Pearce), Blake (Gareth Thomas) decides to send a rescue party - Avon (Paul Darrow), Vila (Michael Keating), Jenna (Sally Knyvette) & Gan (David Jackson) - down to the planet on which the craft crashed for possible survivors.

And yes, the party does really find a surviving crewmember of said spaceship, Ensor (Tony Caunter), whom they bring aboard, but unfortunately Jenna got separated from the group & captured by a group of savage mutants. The rest of the landing party is thus sent down again to rescue her, but instead they find Meegat (Suzan Farmer), keeper of an alien race that has taken temporal refuge in the form of lifecells stored in a rocket, awaiting Avon to send it off to another planet.

On board of Blake'S spaceship The Liberator meanwhile, Ensor has regained his senses & forces Blake & the only other remaining crewmember, Cally (Jan Chappell) to fly him to Aristo where he has to both save his father's life & save someone or something called Orac from falling into the hands of the federation.

Of course all ends on a happy note, with Ensor conveniently dying just in time for Blake to return The Liberator to the planet to pick up his landin g party who meanwhile have freed Jenna & shot the rocket into outer space. & Blake & company even decide to go to Aristo to save Ensor's father ...

 

Apart from the fact that this episode is again falling apart into 2 story-arcs (a problem also inherent in many earlier episodes & not the best idea if you have just 50 minutes to tell your story), the main flaw of this episode is that neither of the stories has a real climax, that would resolve the story, Ensor just dies at a convenient point, & the rocket is launched after pressing a few buttons. It seems almost as if the stories only end at their respective particular points because the running time ran out ...
