Very intense indeed!! I noticed that a couple of typos crept in...is there any way the author could correct those?
I love the way everything that has cropped up in the series proper, gets put into this story and it is very well written. Looking forward to Chapter 6.............

I noticed a couple of typos, too. But I have to say that this story has got me absolutely gripped! Everything from the series is there, but is done really cleverly and plausibly in a RL situation. It's got it all - the mix of humour, angst, action, character interaction... can't wait for the next chapter. Getting into Season D, are we...?

I'd like to recommend another one by Peladon:

'A Matter of Perspective' - another take on a certain shuttle incident.

Chapter 6

http://archiveofo...rs/4777692

I think we are approaching the climax. I wonder if there will be a happy ending (at least happy by B7 standards), or if "Things Will Not End Well".
 
Ellen York
I just found this one. It is an alternate version of Duel set in season 2 at the point of The Keeper. Some good Blake/Avon interaction.

Nicola Mody's look at B7 through the lens of Geoffrey Willans 'molesworth' series - complete with Searle-like illustrations - is worth a look if you are a fan of the goriller of 3B:

Click here, as any fule kno

If only someone could put Neil Faulkner's brilliant B7 molesworth pastiches on line somewhere! Until then however I will just have to make do with the books and molesworth's twitter feed, while hoping the animated molesworth project takes off.


Edit: to enshur the speling was correckt

So of course I clicked, and then followed more links (as one does) and ended up stumbling across a nice story by Nicola set during Shadow - serendiptiously in time for tomorrow's Australian Rewatch: Debts Owed

Here's a Season 4 adventure - featuring in turn Vila, Tarrant, Soolin and Avon - by Spaceship Dispatcher:

Blake's 7: Trojan Horse
Avon has discovered a device that will give the crew a useful advantage against the Federation... or has he?

Has anyone recommended the Vila Restal E-Mail's series by Nicola Mody yet?

It's a nice character piece, detailing life between adventures aboard Liberator and Scorpio, from the point of view of Vila and his e-mail correspondence with his mother, the crew and occasionally Servalan and Travis.

We get to see some of Vila's thoughts and feelings on a range of subjects - everything from the moral implications of destroying Star One to speculating what sort of underwear the crew wear (His thoughts: Blake - white cotton y-fronts, Jenna - black lace, Gan - stretch briefs, Cally - satin/polyester high leglines, Dayna - stretch animal print briefs, Tarrant - posing pouch, Soolin - grey silk thong & Avon - commando).

There's also more exploration of his relationship with Avon, the only character aside from his mother Jandy he messages throughout the series. Avon is quick to call him fool, but we see a growing mutual respect - his insults are usually attached to an invitation to play a few games of chess over a bowl of ice cream. And the final email is a surprisingly touching, yet barbed, message from Avon.

@Grade Four Ignorant -
Thanks for posting the links to Nicola's 'Vila's Emails' - I've made them clickable. I really like this series, although I tend to dip in and out of it rather than reading from start to end. But it's very nicely written - funny and moving, and a good study not only of Vila but the other characters too.

I love the Vila's e-mail series. Jandy's "mom voice" is just perfect; I especially like bit where she threatens to write to Blake and tell him that the Libby crew need to treat Vila better. I read it the first time while I was in the process of watching the show for the first time in about 20 years. For some of the later episodes, I was surprised that there were scenes described in the e-mails that weren't actually in the episodes. And it is lovely that they actually made it to Del 10.

Is the Program you mention the fanzine released alongside, I believe, Ghost? I remember seeing it pop up on eBay a few times. If I recall correctly, it's a Post-Gauda Prime adventure about Avon and a new team of outlaws, right?
 
Joe Dredd
Both Ghost and Program are PGP series written by Judith Seaman. Ghost is the sequel to Program.

This was posted, IIRC, in the 'old' Horizon forum, so to some with good memories this'll be a repeat (sorry, move along) but to others who've not read it before, it's worth a mention/pointer:

"Conscience of the Queen", where Zen's consciousness (so to speak) leaps from the exploding Liberator (at end of 39.Terminal) into the mind of a nearby human... a very *unexpected* nearby human...
Brilliant idea, & brilliantly written :)

"... Confirmed," she added, without knowing why.

".. you behave as if I'd cleared the Neutron Blasters for firing." She wondered where that odd phrase came from.

And "Arlen - that rodent-like woman" LOL! (surely the actress was most talented, but it *is* an amusing description!)
It's onlin at Hermit Library:

Conscience of the Queen is an excellent story!

I can cautiously recommend them. Both Program & Ghost series (as JDredd says, Ghost being the sequel to Program) have their really strong really pleasing points. And both have disappointing weaknesses too. But to me they were worth reading at least a few times; in fact were worth OCR'ing all the zines to keep the text in lightweight digital format.

If I recall correctly, it's a Post-Gauda Prime adventure about Avon and a new team of outlaws, right?
Not really - Avon, Vila, Soolin, Dayna, Tarrant, Orac... not really a new team. The problem is, one - or several, or all - of them may be programmed clones. Yes, they do meet up with some new allies - who do not "die at the end of the episode"! (How un-canon!)
Those new allies (and enemies!) are good solid well-developed characters for the most part IMHO.

Strengths: Plot inventiveness, excellent sci-fi world-building (possibly culture too), good sci-fi tech! Apt B7 & original characterisation overall.
Weaknesses: weak writing in spots (repeated adjectives over & over - very jarring), some weak plots spots (ho-hum another primitive culture...)

I think The Machiavelli Factor is a fantastic B7 novel. Dare I say it (whisper) better than any of Big Finish's printed books so far. I hope you enjoy it littlesue.

I notice that someone is selling the Machiavelli Factor on Ebay for 10. I wonder if the seller realises that the zine is available on Hermit. I must start reading it again...as I went on holiday mid way through and I think I mucked up correcting the misprints.
So I shall find some time again, to finish it.
