    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (2)

      • Mistake: Servalan's space station rotates rapidly, but when she opens her office window the stars are motionless.

      • Mistake: Travis states confidently that Liberator is out of teleport range at a quarter of a million spatials distance. However, he has no way of knowing what the teleport range is. At the beginning of the episode, the Federation didn't even know that Blake had a teleport device.

    • QUOTES (11)

      • Blake: (into bracelet) I'm down and safe. I'm somewhere inside the main complex. Is Vila ready?
        Jenna: (into comm) Hold on, just checking. (to Vila) Are you ready?
        Vila: Tell him I've just worked out a completely new strategy. It's called running away.
        Jenna: He's ready.

      • Blake: How did you get in there?
        Vila: There isn't a lock I can't open (pause) if I'm scared enough.
        Blake: (points to the gate) Are you scared enough for that one?
        Vila: What do you think?

      • Vila: (distracting two Federation guards, so Blake can sneak up from behind) Hello there. How are you? Excuse me wandering about your premises, but I wonder if you can help me? I'm an escaped prisoner. I was a thief but recently I've become interested in sabotage, in a small way you understand, nothing too ambitious. I hate vulgarity, don't you? Anyway, I've come to blow something up. What do you think will be most suitable?

      • Cally: They're taking too long.
        Avon: That's the trouble with heroics. They seldom run to schedule.

      • Jenna: Avon's right.
        Avon: I usually am.

      • Avon: It had better be right. A fraction out and you could put us down in the middle of the security barracks.
        Jenna: Don't tempt me.

      • Blake: Zen, retaliation status report.
        Zen: Detectors confirm massive launch of long range interceptor rockets. They have locked on to Liberator's course and are in pursuit.
        Blake: How long before we outrun them?
        Zen: Battle computers estimate seven hours to outrange interceptor tracking systems.
        Blake: Maintain optimum evasive strategy.
        Zen: Battle computers confirm, optimum evasion strategy committed.

      • Blake: Travis?
        Jenna: Do you know him?
        Blake: I thought he was dead. I was sure I'd killed him.

      • Travis: What about my face?
        Servalan: It was patched up by a field medic.
        Travis: Man saved my life.
        Servalan: But why did you never let the surgeons finish the job?
        Travis: (laughs) What are you suggesting? Cosmetic surgery? I'm a field officer, not one of your decorative staff men.
        Servalan: You're certainly not decorative.

      • Travis: You'd better kill me, Blake. Until one of us is dead, there will never be a time when I won't be right behind you.
        Blake: If not you, then somebody else. Killing you will change nothing. You don't matter enough to kill, Travis.

      • Blake: (after Cally thanks him for her rescue) Too many of my friends are already dead, Cally. I can't afford to lose another one.
