Aftermath.
Panna
Sorry if this has been asked before, but something about Aftermath always confused me. When did Blake and Jenna leave the ship? Cally tells Vila that Jenna went with Blake, but if so, why didn't Vila see them take the life capsules?

For redundancy reasons, there must be more than one life capsule bay aboard Liberator. I always thought Blake and Jenna just took another one. Maybe because it was nearer to Blake's quarters.
On second thought, why should Jenna be near Blake's quarters???

I imagined there would be life capsules on both sides of the ship - Vila, Cally and Avon went for the starboard ones, while Blake and Jenna went port. Or vice versa.

This is dealt with very nicely in the Big Finish original-cast audio Warship which works really well as 'the missing episode' between Seasons B and C. It's on special offer this month, too - only 2.99 for the download!

Well, new stories aside, it's something I haven't seen explained in old forums. So I thought I missed something. I'm not sure if the new audio's are in my personal fanon yet. I don't like the idea of the Liberator not being the only ship to hold back the alien fleet. It take's away the point of the end of Star One IMHO.
 
Panna
Anyway thanks for the ideas about them taking capsules on the other side of the ship. I always wondered if there could have been life capsules next to the medical unit.
Did anyone else think it was a plot hole at the time?

Not so much a plot hole, as something that could have been explained better!

I also wondered if they had stayed in the life support capsules, but not launched them, they could have avoided abandoning the ship. Or if they wore space suits.

Capsules both sides makes sense in terms of ship design, but it could also be just a metter of timing.

It's a valid point although the writers needed to have some sort of conflict to start the new series and also members of the crew had to be on the planet Sarran in order to meet and bring Dayna to the Liberator. Of course, Tarrant came by himself along with a Federation squad of soldiers- but good point and fodder for more Blake's 7 fan fiction.

Well, one way or another they had to write Blake and Jenna out of the series.

I suppose that, compared to the Liberator, the amount of oxygen stored (or able to be generated) by the spacesuits or life capsules would be limited, so that once in the life capsule the best plan would be to try to get to a planet with a breathable atmosphere.

That would be an interesting story for an AU.
Or if they had spent S3 fighting off hidden pockets of Andromedans.

That's a good explanation. Although maybe Zen wanted a new crew again... lol Smile

Did Warship have an explanation as to how Servalan got to Sarran so fast?

I'm happy to accept that Jenna went to help Blake and the escape pods they chose to use were nearer to them than the ones Avon, Cally and Vila took.

Yes, actually. Warship is an excellent 'missing episode' that takes place during the Galactic War - starting at the end of Star One and ending at the beginning of Aftermath. By the end, all the characters are in place for the continuation of the TV series. My review is here, FWIW: http://www.blakes...icle_id=90

I don't know if I'll get Warship. I liked the idea that Avon of all people, along with the rest of the Liberator crew, were the only ones holding the line-trying to protect the empire that was trying to kill them. I'd rather not find out if Warship ruins that notion.

Well, the Federation soldiers who crash on Sarran at the start make it clear that Space Command was involved in the battle.

TROOPER 2: We lost over eighty percent of the fleet, you know.

TROOPER 1: Eighty percent?

TROOPER 2: We only won because there were more of us than there were of them.

But does 'fleet' mean every ship in the Federation, or for instance, 'Galactic 7th Fleet' (where the other six could be relatively intact.
