The first episode of Volume 4 features Stephen Greif as Travis and Jan Chappell as Cally. It is set in the first season of the TV series where Stephen Greif was The Travis we all knew.

Both Travis and Cally arrive on Saurian Major, in the ruins of the communication centre that featured in Time Squad – where Blake had first met Cally.

In flashback, Cally tells the true story of how she came to be alone there – yes the basics she had told Blake were correct, but the full story was much more complicated. Travis tells of his encounter with a young girl native to a planet he had been sent to on a training mission early in his military career. These are the stories of how their relationships with the same woman have led to their meeting here. Both Travis and Cally want to finish their stories and find a conclusion.

Revenge is derailed by an unexpected encounter and Cally and Travis learn more about each other as they await either rescue or death – whichever comes first.

Music and sound effects are very good, but again some of the sounds lag behind the narrative just a little. Explosions and machinery noises are particularly good.

The acting is terrific. Jan Chappell is very good as Cally, she has a certain precise, clipped way of enunciating her words as if she is working hard to be understood, as you might expect from an Alien speaking Standard English. Stephen Greif’s voice is still wonderfully deep and rich and he really has a good way of delivering the lines in a way that is rather threatening. He voices his true loyalty to the Federation and his need for it in a most believeable manner.

A good story for Episode 1 of Volume 4.
Thanks for reading

At first this was two stories, framed by a third.
Then it became three stories, framed by a forth.
Then the stories became lies and the whole became a story in its own right.

I love the way Cally presents her loyalty and goals in this story. Away from Blake she has more room to be devious, which is very good.

It was good to hear Travis again, but I found I was not so interested in what he was saying.

Most of this was just Cally and Travis chatting about old times they didn't share, which went on for too long. Then it got good.
