In the third century of the second calendar, a corrupt galactic federation, with Earth at its center, drugs its billions of citizens into placid submission. A rebel named Roj Blake, who once tried to organize a resistance group to overthrow this regime, was caught and divested of his memories. But Blake's revolutionary spirit is revived when he witnesses a mass slaughter by police that is covered up by the federation officials. He escapes exile on board a prison spaceship and, together with a lovable band of outlaws, takes over a vacant alien space cruiser of awesome drive capability. Naming their new ship as "The Liberator", Blake and his group travel the Milky Way to seek any opportunity to undermine the evil federation. Written by

Steven Pacey had not heard of or seen Blake's 7 (1978) (TV Series) until he watched it with a friend whom was a fan of the series. See more »
Can't he be eliminated?
No, he's a symbol of opposition to the Administration.
We've done cross-sectional psych readings, which show that a high percentage of people, particularly the younger ones, believe that Blake's trial was a showpiece, that his statements were rigged.
His death could be used by the dissidents. They need a hero. Alive or dead, Blake could be it.
Difficult. I suppose my department could infect him, some rapidly terminal disease. Would his natural death help...

SPOILER! The final episode ends with a lone Avon, surrounded by Federation soldiers, holding a blaster-type rifle and smiling a devious smile. The program then cuts to the end titles VISUALLY, but several "shots" are heard over the credits before the theme music starts. See more »
This is quite simply the coolest sci-fi series of all time. It is easy to laugh at the sets and effects in these days of CGI, but it was good entertaining fun when it came out. Gareth Thomas played the Blake of the title, who whizzed round the universe with his crew of outlaws, trying to avoid the Federation. The leader of the Federation, Servalan, was a strong, scary woman who thought nothing of stabbing her allies in the back. In contrast to series such as Doctor Who, the female cast members werent just "screamers" - they all had their own specific and useful skills, such as Cally (Jan Chappell) who had psychic powers and Jenna (Sally Knyvette), an expert pilot. Watching it now brings back many memories, but it does stand up even now. Inspired!
