Approaching Cephlon, the Liberator crew witness a spacecraft crash land on the planet. They rescue a man named Ensor, who was trying to get back to his father on Aristo and arrange for the Federation to purchase something called Orac. He forces Blake and Cally to fly him to Aristo, leaving Avon, Jenna, Gan, and Vila stranded on the radiation-scarred surface of Cephlon. Written by

Early drafts of the episode had Blake and Avon's roles switched round, with Blake leading the party on the planet surface and Avon staying on the ship and pursuing Orac in the next episode, Blakes 7: Orac
(1978). Their roles were swapped because it was considered inconceivable to have Avon meekly handing Orac over to Blake. Also, location filming for the previous episode Blakes 7: Bounty
(1978) conflicted with this one. See more
