Storyline

The Liberator detects a mysterious spiky metal globe floating in space. Avon deduces that it is an artificial planet, but can't raise any communication. Then Cally disappears - apparently abducted inside the "planet". As well as affecting minds, this "Ultraworld" turns out to be capable of stealing them - and using the zombified bodies of space travelers to trap others. But the crew must ultimately face the menace that rules from the center of the Ultraworld... Written by frank-270

Quotes

Orac: The idiosyncratic syntax of riddles interests me. They seem to depend for their effect on solecisms and grammatical discrepancies.
Vila Restal: [totally confused] Eh?
Orac: Do you have another riddle for me to analyze?
Vila Restal: You'd only spoil it.
Orac: I thought you liked riddles.
Vila Restal: I do when I'm allowed to tell them properly. All you're interested in is the idiotic tin tax or something.
Orac: That's very clever.
Vila Restal: What is?
Orac: For "idiosyncratic syntax" you substituted "idiotic tin tax". Yes, very good.
Vila Restal: [brightening] Is it?

A very poor episode which narrowly avoids being absolutely awful
8 August 2014 | by (Ireland) – See all my reviews

The idea of an artificial planet seeking to gather all knowledge that it can by draining people's minds is a nice idea but it's badly executed. In many respects, it's reminiscent of a bad third season episode of "Star Trek: The Original Series" or any given episode of "Buck Rogers in the 25th Century" with silly looking, weird aliens capturing the crew and wanting them to have sex to increase their knowledge. I liked the fact that Dayna got more to do than usual but, as in "Volcano", what she got to do was rather boring. It was also interesting as one of the few episodes, along with "The Keeper", to sideline Avon for an appreciable period of time. All in all, a bad episode but not one which I had any strong feelings about one way or another. The very definition of a "meh" episode of "Blake's 7". Perhaps the most "meh" episode of the entire series.
