~ Blake’s 7 ~
Blake’s 7 was a British science fiction television programme produced by the BBC. It was created by Terry Nation.
Four series of thirteen 50-minute episodes were made, and first broadcast in the United Kingdom between January 1978 and December 1981 by BBC1. They are set in the third century of the second calendar and at least 700 years in the future. Blake’s 7’s narrative concerns the exploits of political dissident Roj Blake, who leads a small group of rebels against the forces of the totalitarian Terran Federation that rules the Earth and many colonised planets. The Federation uses mass surveillance, brainwashing and drug pacification to control its citizens. Blake was arrested, tried on false charges, and deported to a remote penal colony. En route, he and fellow prisoners Jenna Stannis and Kerr Avon gain control of a technologically advanced alien spacecraft, with its central computer Zen. Liberator’s speed and weaponry are superior to the Federation craft, and it also has a teleportation system that enables transport to the surface of planets. Blake and his crew begin a campaign to damage the Federation, but are pursued by Space Commander Travis —a Federation soldier— and Servalan, the Supreme Commander and later Federation President.
The Liberator was a powerful spacecraft originally constructed by the System. The System designated the ship Deep Space Vehicle 2 and there was at least one other identical ship,referred to as Deep Space Vehicle 1. The name Liberator was subconsciously given to it by Jenna but accepted by the ship’s computers.
