Much to the dismay of hacker-genius Avon (Paul Darrow), Roj Blake (Gareth Thomas) plan to take his spaceship Liberator plus crew - besides these two Jenna (Sally Knyvette), Vila (Michael Keating) & the giant Gan (David Jackson) - to Sorian Major in order to destroy one of the Federation's communications complexes that makes the planet a nerve center for the Federation.

On their way there however they pick up a small spacecraft carrying a few aliens (Tony Smart, Mark McBride, Frank Henson) sleeping in cryogenic chambers, & promptly decide to wake them up. Then though Blake, Avon & Vila go down to the planet to make contact with the resistance & blow the communications complex up, while Jenna & Gan stay aboard the ship to look after things, &, more improtantly, teleport them back aboard should need arise.

You can possibly guess what happens next already, but I will tell you nevertheless: The aliens awake & turn out to be brutal murderers, soon attacking Jenna & Gan - who thanks to a brainimplant is unable to kill his adversaries - while Blake & crew on the planet run into a tight spot together with Cally (Jan Chappell), sole survivor of the resistance forces. & while they desperately need to be beamed up, with the planet only minutes away from explosion, Jenna & Gan have a battle of their own on their hands.

Needless to say, both problems end in a bang, & the crew comes out safe & sond, with Cally staying aboard as the 6th crewmember (or 7th, if you count Zen, the eccentric & mysterious ship's computer - hence Blake's 7).

 

Unfortunately, this episode gives away its story & solution way too soon to maintain tension & suspense over the whole running time (on the other hand though, Alien, released one year later, had a very similar plot & structure - even giving away much of the story at an early point, too, but manages to stay suspensefull throughout). That said, it's still an entertaining if not terribly special episode.

And, the boots Jenna wears are just priceless !
