4.Always Recycle

War is a dirty business and cleaning up afterwards is never pretty. Kudos then to the Federation for fighting a devestating war against the Andromedans using entirely recylyed products. The Nova Queen, the persuits ships that kept attacking the Liberator in series 2, even Space City were loving hooked out of the green bins and sent into battle. This meant that no-one died who hadn't been blown up before and there was far less of a mess. The final proof that this was a sensible policy was that whenever the Fedration were required to lose a ship, they just recylced Travis ship blowing up. Evil and yet eccologically conscious. No wonder they won.

5. Don't Get Stuck in Your Role

Poor Cally. Alone on a big spaceship with a load of people she doesn't really know and half of whom don't seem to like her. What does she do? Get's possessed by the first alien in a fish tank she can find. All of a sudden, everyone notices her, she gets a bit of rough fun with Avon and she's now the mystic, kooky one. The Phoebe of the gang if you will. All well and good.

Unfortunately, she kept pulling the same trick out of the bag, being possessed on a near weekly basis and forever making references to the mysterious past of her - frankly rather dull - planet. By the time of Sarcaphogeous, she's even using it as a means to try and pull Avon and make herself the really popular one by just enslaving the rest of the crew. Everyone else is by this stage clearly sick of it and come UIltraworld they barely notice when she's possessed again. The idea that she might permanently have a different brain in her body seems
terribly passe to them. Dayna is doing better at this point, mixing deadly guided weaponary with the harp.

Cally is sadly rather like one of those annoying people at uni who smoked some dope during freshers week and then spent the next three years endlessly quoting Withnail and I at anyone unfortunate enough to be listening.

It's important to keep things fresh.

If they ever do bring back B7, maybe they could do a gender swap and get the guy who played Naboo in The Mighty Boosh to be Cally!

6. Be a gracious winner

You can see why Blake is feeling a bit cocky at the end of Seek-Locate-Destroy. He's defeated a former enemy,struck a humiliating blow against the Federation and almost made up for accidentally leaving one of his crew behind in a situation of deadly peril. The sensible thing would simply be to go home and set his Facebook status to something smug. Unfortunately, pride gets the better of him and he can't help making fun of Travis, telling him he's not worth killing and boasting that he'll always beat him. Even when he's back on the Liberator, the way Blake says 'Travis gun' is so laden he might as well have announced 'We've bigger ones than this in the valleys and don't the ladies know it'

Not unsurprisingly, Travis becomes consumed with hatred and obsessed with revenge after this hardcore taunting, setting in motion a sequence of events that will culminate in a devestating war that will leave millions dead and give Servalan the chance to become President. All because Blake wanted to gloat. If he'd just said 'Better luck next time Travis, like the eye patch by the way' it would have saved a lot of bother.

7. Find words butter no parsnips

This is very true. It is neigh on impossible to butter pasnips with words and you just end up with a sticky mess. It's like trying to recreate B7 for Radio 4 on the basis of watching the first B7 video you can find cheap in HMV and assuming that all the episodes were like Stardrive and Animals

It's almost like the hand of fate stepped in there... Can you think of a worse video than that one on which to base your research?

Umm... except possibly the one with "Volcano" and "Dawn of the Gods" on it

Could be an interesting experiment...! Commission someone to write a B7 story, and only let them see those episodes... and maybe Voice From The Past... and Moloch... and Warlord... and possibly Harvest of Kairos


What I'm wondering about is that Mr Letts apparently didn't attempt to watch any more episodes (unless the BBC writers' research budget doesn't stretch to more than one bargain video)... Did he perhaps think that those 2 episodes were works of such utter genius that watching more could only result in disappointment?

Sitting there watching the closing credits of "Animals" and thinking "Whew! Well they can't top THAT!"

Now if Afro were to write a B7 radio play, it would be based entirely on The Harvest of Kairos...
