A new recruit, and a new blog in progress.

Oh yes, it's all there and spread out. I imagine it combined into one place. In my head it's a chunky hardback with a great layout and a great typography. Oh, and a comprehensive index.


That would be lovely! How about starting with an online version?

I'm not a fan of Traitor, but I do like the portrait of Supreme Empress Servalan. It reminds me of Pietro Annigoni's 1954 portrait of the Queen, which I think influenced it.


Yes I can see that too. Nice spot!

Personally I think Traitor is a superb episode, possibly one of the more satisfying offerings in the fourth season.

As an aside, I've always had the idea of a dream B7 book in my head.

As Dr Frank 'n' Furter said: "Don't dream it, be it!" Between all of us here and wider B7 fandom), surely we have all that's needed?
Transcripts - the Hermit collection, soon to be hosted on Horizon
Photos - Scorpio Attack have a sensational photo library
Factual details about film locations and dates - Andrew Pixley
etc etc


Bravo! It would be great to produce something online in time for next January. Although I imagine the clock is ticking fast...

It's one that I just cant put my finger on. But has real 'meat' to it. There are definitely really important bits to it. Thinking about it more, perhaps the thing that I just don't like is the overall visual style of the fourth series, which makes it look cheaper. But again I'm trying to work out what that visual style actually is. I think it is about the way the whole series is lit...

Growing up overseas, I came to B7 backwards, sideways and out of order, seeing the eps on video years after they were broadcast and in no particular order. The first ep I saw was 'Seek-Locate-Destroy', the last was 'Traitor', so I have a particular soft spot for those two, regardless of their merits / defects. (Actually, I don't think S-L-D has any defects - it's a perfect ensemble episode. But I digress.)

Traitor is a mixed bag, and there are aspects of it I love - the location (I find the dull, muddy landscape rather atmospheric), the fantastic fight sequence that was shot and edited on film, the characters of Hunda and others, the introduction to the Pylene-50 story arc (I saw this ep long after I saw first 'Warlord', and it all made perfect sense).

But there are aspects of the ep that I find truly awful - the whole Servalan/Sleer thing, Jacqueline Pearce's costume and make-up (how they managed to make such a beautiful woman look so dreadful is beyond me), Tarrant & Dayna's costume continuity at the end, which makes my teeth itch every time I see it. I'd probably give it about 6.5 out of 10. Oh okay, 7 out of 10. Because I'm still happy to rewatch it every time it rolls around, which is more than I can say for Moloch...

I think that is it, initially B7 to me generally felt grungy, with season D less so. Sets seemed more obviously studio based and over lit ones at that.

I think trying to go for a more jumpsuit style look to make it look more authentic and credible also made the look more derivative. That being said some looks and visuals were excellent, Scorpio Launch Bay, Space Princess Docking Sequence and Servalan's 'Cylon' Raider were well realised.

Locations yes indeed the earthworks for Helotrix felt like a credible quagmire and WWI style battleground. Indeed giving that grungy looked that B7 started out with. I also had the benefit of seeing things in the intended order and Traitor seemed very much to have the old style (ie Terry's vision) whereas other episodes in D and even C less so.

Travisina - yes definitely agree with you about S-L-D - a great advertisement for the entire cast.

President Solvite - Traitor felt like early Blake's 7. I watched it all out of order at first. I thought Travis has returned. And I like your assessment of season D.

Good stuff Zonda, I particularly enjoyed your analysis of how the main actors were interpreting their characters at this early stage.
