The epic story arc deserved a better finish. The problem was the episode had to end in a position to slot into a key moment of B7 continuity.

The Liberator crew splits up in an illogical way leaving Tarrant alone on the Liberator while the rest of the characters head off on a mission that only needed a team of two. Both were interesting, but neither was worthy of being the finale of this story line.

This story more or less aims to fills in the blank left by the television serial, which never explains in any detail how Servalan disappeared and became Sleer. I confess I never really bought into her new identity—after all, the entire Federation must have known what she looked like — but it’s rather fun to have Big Finish's explanation brought to life in this audio play. It is not a seamless explanation, but I’m happy not to delve too deeply into the plot holes, especially when we have the bonus of Hugh Fraser reprising his role as the President of the Federation, (here returned to power following a civil war with the erstwhile Supreme Commander).

The story ends on a cliffhanger. I assume more Blake's 7 is on the way from Big Finish, but I’m not certain how they are going to do this, given that this particular episode takes place between Deathwatch and Terminal, at the end of season C, and they are adamant that they are unable to obtain the rights to season D material.
