Aboard the spaceship London, carried off to the penal colony Cygnus Alpha for a crime hi did not commit, former freedom fighter Roj Blake (Gareth Thomas) & some fellow prisoners - among them Vila (Michael Keating), Jenna (Sally Knyvette) & the giant Gan (David Jackson), all of whom would become regulars on the series - plan to take over the ship, but the plan will only work if they can win criminal computer expert Avon (Paul Darrow) over for their cause. Though reluctant at first, Avon is soon convinced by them but stays skeptical anyway, not used to trust anybody but himself.

When the London gets involved in a space-battle they were only passing, Blake & his group use it as a diversion & soon they hold the computerroom ... but from then on everything goes horribly wrong, as the crew of the London, without control over the computer, can no longer avoid being dragged into the space battle, and furthermore, Blake's co-conspirators - all but Blake, Avon & Jenna, who are actually in the computer-room - surrender to the guards, & sadistic subcomander Raiker (Leslie Schofield) is holding them hostage & shoots one of them every 30 seconds, forcing Blake to give up control of the computer.

Blake, Jenna & Avon are put under maximum security, but after the London discovers a drifting alien spaceship on parallel course & try to entere it only to lose a full entering team, it is decided to send the 3 of them over as human guineapigs. They encounter one of the most fantastic spaceships they have ever seen, but they are soon affected by a hypnotic beam intended to drive them to certain doom. Thank god Blake has broken the barriers of brainwashing once before (see episode 1 of the series) & is thus less affected by the hypnotic beam & able to destroy its source.

The 3 of them now decide to part ways with the London & make an escape on their new ship, & not only that, when they split, subcommander Raiker was on his way over through the transfer hatch & is sucked into space.

But where do Blake, Jenna & Avon go, you might ask - to Cygnus Alpha of course, to free enough of their fellow prisoners to have a whole ship's crew.

Glyn Owen plays Leylan, captain of the London, in this one, Norman Tipton is subcommander Artix.


Nice second episode of the series, that is somewhat hampered by cheap costumes & shabby sets (some spaceship-miniatures are rather nice though), but has an interesting enough plot further setting up things to come but at the same time telling a story of its own, thus avoiding to immediately become formulaic.
