Jenna: What are you doing?
Avon: It's a detector shield. I've been working on it for some time.
Vila Restal: Everyone should have a hobby. What's it do?
Avon: It should keep us off everything but the Federation's close range visual scanners.
Vila Restal: You mean their long-range detectors won't pick us up at all? But that's brilliant, Avon, absolutely brilliant! It'll never work.
Avon: There's only one way to find out.

Trial
4 July 2008 | by (prejudicemadeplausible.wordpress.com) – See all my reviews

"Trial" is an interesting episode following up on the events in "Pressure Point", with Servalan covering up for the incident at the Central Control computer complex by sending Space Commander Travis to certain death through a trial at the Federation headquarters. On the Liberator the crew find themselves deserted by Blake, who blames himself for Gan's death and teleports to a volcanic planet where he discovers that he is not alone.

Although the alien on the planet Blake teleports to is a bit rubbish the planet itself is nicely-realized and that side of the story is quite intriguing and entertaining. "Trial" is directed quite well by Derek Martinus, whose work on Doctor Who was generally of a high standard in my opinion. The less interesting portion of the episode is the Liberator crew discussing Blake's disappearance and its aftermath. The trial takes up a relatively short time but works nicely.

8/10
