Why does Servalan care if the rest of the team are killed or not?


She wants to seize power. Therefore her every move is politically motivated.

Servie uses a crisis to steal the Presidency.

David Maloney's direction is so assured. It's a shame he wasn't allowed to direct more episodes.

Remind me again why Blake wanted to destroy Star One?


To prove he was right. Nothing to do with freeing of the masses. In fact, if you're on a frontier world, he'll cause your probable death.


But it must serve some other purpose. Isn't it the same as what he was doing in Pressure Point? Trying to destroy central control?? And if so, why is it so much worse to destroy Star One than it was to destroy central control when they believed it to be housed on Earth??

I guess both are bad as each other. Destruction of Control would have been just as bad.

Yes, but there wasn't the concern shown by the crew then, only concern for their own safety... I think it's a flaw in the writing

I always like my doors marked entrance too - you know, unless I'm leaving.

Also, in "Space Fall", Blake makes it plain that it's Earth that he's mostly interested in. I can't see how destroying Star One would have much of an effect on life in the Dome. To do that, you would need to need to stop the drug supplies.

Blake's actions don't match his aims. He's lost the plot.

Nobody's given any time to think in "Pressure Point"; Blake reveals his true plan as it is launched. in "Star One", there's a journey of months to the place, so plenty of time for the crew to consider the implications.

I always felt like Blake's plans to take down Star One was more of a desperation move. He's been less and less strategic as time progresses and more idealism for its own sake. I think early one he may have had more of a plan (albeit not terribly good) but now he just wants to hurt the Federation.

If that were true it would be a good explanation, but we don't know it is a journey of months. That is just an assumption you have made. I think it's fair to assume it could take days, even weeks with Liberator's capabilities.

Always remember watching this for the first time at about 3am in the morning. I bought two videos (Children/Rumours and Keeper/Star One), the only video recorder was my mum and dad's, so I watched four episodes after they went to bed. This was the fourth and became my favourite episode for a few years to come.

I think up until then my favourite episode was Headhunter - my favourite episode from watching Colin & Derek as a kid.

Yes, it was an assumption. I guess it depends where Goth was. But even so, this is perhaps only one of two episodes (the other being Moloch) to take place outside of the galaxy. Moloch does give us a journey time, I think it's 27 days.
