    • TRIVIA (1)

      • When Gerren is shot by the computer game, he holds his left shoulder. But when he teleports to Scorpio with Tarrant, he holds (and Dayna works on) his right shoulder.

    • QUOTES (4)

      • Avon: The Federation is investing two hundred billion credits on the project. For unlimited energy, I would say that that was cheap at the price.
        Vila: So would I. Where?
        Avon: Where what?
        Vila: Where do we steal the Federation crystals from?
        (Avon smiles)

      • Vila: (Into bracelet, while explosions are going off all around him) Avon, Avon, are you up there? Avon, come in please.
        Avon: (over comms) Avon - go ahead Vila.
        Vila: We've been trying to contact you for an hour. What the hell have you been doing, taking a nap?
        Avon: (over comms) I've been doing what we came for. How about you?
        Vila: Oh nothing much, I've been shot at, trodden on, nearly captured twice, and now I think they're trying to blow me up. A fairly average day, you know.
        Avon: (over comms) They're not aimed at you.
        Vila: I wish you'd tell them that. Teleport me back up, will you?
        Avon: (over comms) Not yet, you've still got work to do.

      • Orac: A computer must, by definition, be logical. But it can also mirror the logic of its creator.
        Soolin: You mean it's an extension of his mind.
        Orac: No, that is not what I mean.
        Soolin: His personality, then.
        Orac: A better definition, but still not quite accurate.
        Avon: Would it know how the booby traps on the orbiter are programmed?
        Orac: As yet, I don't have enough data to answer that question.
        Avon: If it knew, could you extract the information from it? Come on! (he hits Orac) That's a simple enough question!
        Orac: There might be problems.
        Avon: Why? You have extracted information from Federation computers before now. This is just a hodge-podge of three or four of them. You have already said that it is inferior to you.
        Orac: The difficulty is not technical. It's more one of, uh, attitude.
        Avon: Ah. You mean the logic of its creator.
        Orac: Exactly. Let me remind you of ancient Earth mythology. The Delphic Oracle would answer questions truthfully, without giving a true answer.
        Avon: So what we need is not the right answer, but the right question.

      • Servalan: Are you ready to explain why you betrayed your position of trust, Gerren?
        Gerren: It was Belkov, h-he was the one who betrayed the Federation.
        Servalan: I see. And you've been associating with rebels in order to expose him, is that it?
        Gerren: He didn't send back more than half the feldon that was mined. H-he kept it for himself. H-he's been doing it for years.
        Servalan: Odd how you never mentioned that before.
