I've got a nice piece of citrine now to make a Laseron destroyer. Now just have to work out which version of it to make and how to make it.

OK, stand down: acording to the B7 Programme Guide it's NAGU.


I know of a Nabu, a Mesopotamian deity.

Indeed. He was (according to Wiki) patron god of scribes, literacy, and wisdom.
My nephew named his son Nevo partly after him (it's spelled the same in Hebrew), but also because Naboo was the planet in Star Wars!
My views are my own.

VILA: I'm entitled to my opinion.
AVON: It is your assumption that we are entitled to it as well that is irritating.

This is an irritating episode for me. I think there is the germ of a good story there, and, without all the credulity and Traviss-in-bandages (who is really not necessary for the plot) it might have got out.

I don't mind that Vila is way too trusting of Blake, as I put it down to his committment to him as he saved him from a life on Cygnus Alpha.

The eyeliner is gorgeous! Point taken about Vila's trust of Blake - though you'd think he'd be a bit more sceptical after Pressure Point.

Re Vila: that's sort of how I see it too. He is trusting of Blake rather than simply daft. Very un-Vila-like though, he doesn't place a bet both ways.

The Governor might still be alive down there! Nobody brave enough to go and check?


It shows how little feeling they have for the cause, I suppose. Or they might have thought she was in the plot.

Me too.
It should have been - could have been - a fantastic ep, relating back to Blake's trial on Earth plus political machinations within the Federation. But it's an annoying mess, and I think that's what annoys me the most - such a waste of potential.

The only sensible bit of this whole thing was Servalan getting rid of people who opposed her.
Presumably she was behind Travis dressed up like that, too. She likes a good laugh.
You're not sulking, I hope?

Yes, the Mt. Nebo (metathesising the v/ b ) being how most people would know the name. Interesting choice of name. Something to explain when young Nevo grows up a bit.

Yes - whole purpose of exercise, as far as she is concerned. And I suspect she feels that Travis needs something to keep him occupied.

It was lovely to see you all. I'm very glad I made the rewatch. I had my second Covid jab at half nine, so I'm feeling good that I've tried my best to get protected. I've got a busy day today, as I'm expecting to feel the standard fatique symptoms by tomorrow.

Hope you all have a good weekend. I hope your Laseron destroyer works out well, Obsidian. And I hope you fully recover from Covid quickly, Meegat!
Avon: "Not enough! Not nearly enough! Dammit, what weighs seventy kilos?"
Orac: "Vila weighs seventy-three kilos, Avon."
Avon: "Vila, are you here? I need your help."

Well sorry I didn't comment much folks. Track n Trace rang me for the second time today, during the episode. It's best to not ignore their calls! I am out of quarantine as of tomorrow, hooray!!
GARETH THOMAS: Paul is a very generous man, as a human being and as an actor. The programme couldn’t have been made if we hadn’t got on. Our working relationship was magic.

I always see her endless manipulations as being at the core of the show because of how they're carried through even once Travis is gone. It's what flips Avon in the end.

OK, bye Travisina. Have a great week everyone. Hope you're OK for work on Monday, Meegat.
Looking forward to Gambit...

I should have put the subtitles on - it would be quite nice to know that one in Dutch!

And the mountain. My nephew wanted to have something in the name relating to nature and heritage - Mt Nevo is where Moses ascended to look over the Holy Land.
Problem is, having used this name for Son No. 1, he's stumped for ideas for Son No. 2, due in August.
I suggested 'Avon' - as well as the sci fi connection, it's a river, and connected with Shakespeare. But it doesn't work in Hebrew (means 'sin' or 'iniquity' ! )
My views are my own.
