Blake seemed to approve of their behaviour....! But then it's never clear how much he wanted to save ordinary people from the Federation or just get his own back!

You can't beat revenge to help stoke the ire

Paul Darrow's skill with deadpan delivery really starts to show itself in this episode. There's some great lines for him. 'These are what you were trying to protect' for example could well sum up his feelings for the crew as much as for the Decima. His jibes at Gan are great too, especially as in Time Squad there's an implication that Gan sees himself as able to gain the upperhand over Avon.

Novara is yummy, he can be my slave any day!

This was a frustrating episode because it had a lot of potential wasted by poor scripting and execution.
The Good - I liked the base in the forest setting, the questions the episode raised about creating artificial life and about keeping oneself alive for a long, long time.
The Bad - the rest of the episode. As others have pointed out the ending is pretty unthinking - with the decimas turning out to be just very destructive. I wouldn't have saved them.
