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

It was originally intended that Cally would wear black contact lenses when she goes into an alien trance to make her look more alien, as well as having red skin and hair. These ideas were finally abandoned to reduce costs and save time. See more »
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 »
Blake's 7 is my favorite sci-fi series, mainly because of the witty dialogue and shades-of-gray characterizations. I own all the videos and rewatch the Blake episodes often.
I understand a TV movie in the UK is projected for 2000. I wish Blake or Gareth Thomas were involved and, also, that people who understood Blake's 7 better were involved. The last two recent radio dramas (done by the people involved with the proposed movie) have suffered by being Blakeless as well as being rather corny and twisting the characters so formerly well defined by the series.
I strongly recommend the Blake's 7 series to anyone who can be mature enough to ignore the terrible special effects. This is a series where characterization and acting are strong.
