Blake's 7 Cast

Now that he finally has the location to the Federation’s control centre, Star One, Blake is determined to destroy it, even though Cally points out that its destruction will result in the deaths of millions of people throughout the galaxy. When Servalan’s advisors at Federation Command headquarters inform her that Star One’s systems have begun to fail, she uses the emergency to seize control of the presidency. Blake and his crew arrive at Star One, and soon discover that the base personnel have been systematically killed and replaced by shape-shifting alien invaders. Blake learns that the aliens have made contact with Travis, who has decided to betray humanity by deactivating the Federation defence system, leaving the galaxy open to the alien invasion force. Blake pretends to be Travis, and sets time bombs throughout the base. Aboard Liberator, Jenna sights the alien fleet, but is unable to get through to Blake to warn him; she then takes the only option remaining to her: she warns Servalan. Travis arrives at the base and shoots Blake, wounding him; Avon then shoots Travis, who plummets into the core of Star One. Blake realises that he cannot destroy the control centre, as the Federation will need every resource it has at its disposal to deal with the approaching invasion force; Avon and Cally race against time to gather up the bombs and get them outside just before they detonate. Servalan receives Jenna’s warning, and in desperation, is forced to believe it to be true. She mobilises the Federation fleet, and until it arrives, the Liberator is all that stands in the way of invasion. With Blake wounded, Avon takes over command of the ship, as he and the crew pilot it into battle…
