Storyline

Avon follows Servalan to the planet Sardos, home of a society that can create anything using special energy-mass transformers. Once there, they discover a group of Federation troops planning to build a battle fleet to take over the rest of the galaxy. All the conspirators need is the specifications of Servalan's cruiser and a suitable pilot. Written by Christopher M. Buckey

The absolute worst episode of the series
8 August 2014 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

Considering that this was the only episode that I thought had no merit whatsoever when I watched the series for the first time in 2009, I was dreading this episode and put it off for several days but I decided to bite the bullet. With the obvious exception of Jacqueline Pearce, the guest cast is either terrible or complete non-entities with John Hartley as Grose being the worst. It's completely unbelievable that he could outwit the arch-manipulator Servalan.

Grose's plot should be exciting but it's deathly boring. On the bright side, Vila makes a friend, Doran, which is nice, but Doran is implied to be a woman-hating serial killer, which is less nice. I typically don't mind poor special effects too much but Moloch himself is the absolute worst special effect and worst looking alien in the series' history, making Saymon from "The Web" look brilliant in comparison. His death is a huge anti-climax as well. The only thing that I liked about this episode were the scenes between Vila and Servalan, who seldom have much significant interaction but that's not enough to even come close to making it bearable.
