Who should have joined the crew of Scorpio?
trevor travis
As we're mid-rewatch in "Derek"... time to resurrect a similar poll from the old board.

Avon’s recruiting scheme in recent weeks has been something of a disaster, with his potential applicants ending up dead. Of the following deceased characters (although in Og’s case, I still think it may only be a flesh wound), who would you have most liked to join the crew of Scorpio?
 
trevor travis
Lots to consider here:

Dorian (Rescue) – pros: lots of experience, cons: megalomaniac.
The Creature/Sea Devil (Rescue) – pros: good at dancing, cons: would cost a fortune in copyright fees to the Doctor Who office.
Pella (Power) – pros: beautiful, cons: selfish and nasty.
Gunn Sar (Power) – pros: dab hand at embroidery, cons: those Moobs.
Leitz (Traitor) – pros: difficult to tell, cons: treacherous.
Igin (Traitor) – pros: brave, cons: easy to brainwash.
Dr Plaxton (Stardrive) – pros: brilliant engineer, cons: picks weird mates.
Random Dead Space Rat (Stardrive) – pros: likes speed, cons: can’t speak the Queen’s English and has silly feathers on his helmet.
Justin (Animals) – pros: can’t think of any, cons: too many to list, but being the Second Calendar equivalent to Jimmy Savile is at the top of the list.
Og (Animals) – pros: heroic, intelligent, handsome, can double for a hat stand, cons: none.
Muller (Headhunter) – pros: genius, cons: silly accent.
Vena (Headhunter) – pros: brilliant cook, cons: she’d insist on Oxo ads in the middle of episodes.

Lynda Bellingham, no contest.
Reversing the polarity of the neutron flow. I bet that means something. It sounds great.

I think you can guess how, after some consideration, I voted! Grin

Vena cooking gravy would not have helped the crew in the final scene in "Blake". Og charging down 10 or so guards might Wink

Actually, breaking up the episodes with some gravy commercials might improve most of series 4 anyway; especially if having Oxo ads meant that Charles Vaughan could step through into Blake's 7 and take over the Scorpio with some common sense before Gauda Prime ever happens...

Good plan SD, but make sure it's Charles Vaughan who comes through, rather than Greg Preston. Greg and Avon together would be a recipe for even greater disaster Grin Grin Grin

There's a speculative article on this very website about Dorian's 7 ...

Nina. Not for any very clever or witty reasons but because the crew need a good surgeon and a motherly figure. She would doctor their hurts and make them soothing drinks. And weave Sarapes to keep them warm. She would comfort Vila, persuade Soolin to open up about past traumas, help Dayna to move on from her weapon's obsession through Freudian analysis, play board games with Vila and darn his socks, persuade Avon to wear blue and talk about Cally and Anna and tell Tarrant off when he got too boisterous and bullying. She, Avon and Vila would enjoy uncomplicated sex which would have relieved much of their stress. Best of all in that last episode she would have firmly told Avon, " put down the gun, dear, and play nicely with your friend. Or if you must point it at someone, that rat faced little Missy would be a good candidate. She's obviously a spy." thus averting the whole GP disaster. She would have grounded Blake and confounded Servalan, " Yes I know you're Supreme Commander dear, very nice, but are you a WOMAN? Don't cry now, you'll spoil your make-up and I really think you and Blake have a lot in common". She could even have installed a little self confidence in Slave. Aaah. It's Blakes7 but not as we know it!

Anniew, nice reasoning. Although I don't think Nina is shown to die on-screen, maybe she does afterwards.
 
Anniew
Oh blimey Trev. Old age! Sorry.

I am surprised that you did not include Piri in the list ... Grin

But seriously, this was a tough call. I finally went for Vena, albeit only for aestethic reasons (I never tasted any Oxo products), and not for Og.

A pity that Hunta survived, he would have made another interesting candidate.

Avon shows no interest in recruiting post-Headhunter (nice double meaning to that title!), hence the cut-off at that episode.

If Assassin was included, Neebrox and (male) Cancer would be the choices, couldn't stand Piri in every episode Wink Wink
 
Space Chopper
I would have gone with Neebrox, too. It would give the show yet another Dr Who crossover element! if I have to go for someone on the list, then :
Dr Plaxton (Stardrive) – pros: brilliant engineer, cons: picks weird mates.
you don't really get weirder than the Scorpio crew, let's face it! Grin

Vila: "I plan to live forever- or die trying..."
 
Anniew
Ok I'll have Cato. Used to dealing with Prima donnas. Could be Father figure for Tarrant and Dayna. Chess companion for Avon. Could teach Vila to weave which would reduce his stress. He and Soolin could share braiding tips. Understands technology. Could help them get unlimited solar energy. Devious so Avon would respect his opinions.

Pella would have been a good replacement for Cally, a darker Psi artist with her own agenda, defiant of Avon and Tarrant.

More important than who I voted for is whom I did NOT vote for: Del Grant. Grant makes a good guest star, the visiting specialist, but if he's standing around a whole season taking orders from Avon, then he is NOT Del Grant.

Grant is 2nd series, we're talking 4th series, dear.
I'd have to vote for Og. They could use a strong 'man' to replace Gan. And he is also useful as a hatrack.

Grant transcends individual series. He is a time traveler with many aliases, stopping the Jaggeroth in Paris in the 70's and stopping Laciffre in London in 2006 by ruining his stock deal.

Back on Topic, Pella is cuter than Og.

I voted for Dorian. A bit more muscle on the team, good lucks and brains. Also, a person for Avon to lock horns with. Something that was slightly lacking after Blake departed.

She's also completely untrustworthy and will kill her best-mate without flinching!!

Whereas Og is loyal, brave, and will even fetch the morning paper if you ask him nicely Grin Grin
