Storyline

En route for the Federation planet Saurian Major, the Liberator encounters a small craft drifting in space, and the crew bring it aboard against Zen's advice. Later, Blake, Avon and Vila teleport down to attack the Federation communications complex on Saurian Major, leaving Jenna and Gan to watch the three cyrogenically-frozen passengers found aboard the vehicle. As Blake's team and a telepath named Cally try to infiltrate the base, the three aliens come out of hibernation. Written by Christopher M. Buckey

Time Squad
21 May 2008 | by (prejudicemadeplausible.wordpress.com) – See all my reviews

On the way to federation planet Saurian Major, Blake picks up an unidentified projectile, accidentally allowing three hibernating aliens on to The Liberator.

"Time Squad" is an okay episode of Blake's 7 that frankly isn't up to much other than being a reasonably solid standalone story. The aliens are a bit rubbish and despite some interesting plot twists this isn't much of an exciting episode, but it's to be expected that with Terry Nation writing this ENTIRE first season there will be some less interesting episodes, and this is one of them.

6/10
