After surviving a federation pursuit ship ambush Blake recivees a message from Travis who is now a fugitive from the Federation saying he has Blake's cousin Inga hostage on the Planet Exbar and threatens to kill her if he doesn't teleport down to the planet

Another episode by Allan Prior his second of the season and like the first one Horizon it's very generic . One criticism of the show is that it's very much like a Western set in space and though one can strongly dispute this it's impossible to dispute this is very much how the episode plays out . It's also an episode that plays up a little too much the generic prime qualities of the characters . By this I mean Blake is mainly heroic , Avon is mainly cynical and Vila is mainly cowardly etc . As 50 minutes of telefantasy entertainment it's okay but seems somewhat insipid and bland after a run of some very good episodes . That said the location filming does give the episode an appropriate gloom tone
