Warship (Blake’s 7)
Peter Anghelides

From the Blakes 7 Universe:

An alien fleet stands poised to invade Federation space. The only vessel available to hold it back is the Liberator, commanded by Roj Blake and his crew.

As an intergalactic war breaks out, old enemies become allies, and friends will become separated.

And Blake will be forced to leave behind all that matters to him…

This release consists of two discs: the story on one disc, and a behind the scenes documentary on disc two. It is not part of any Blake’s 7 subscription.

Warship (Blake's 7) book cover

I’ve got a love-hate relationship with Big Finish. I think they made a mess of James Follett‘s Mindwarp, and find their Blake’s 7, both audio and especially electronic, wildly overpriced. The formatting of this ebook got under my skin (look at the unsavory apostrophes on “Liberator’s”), and a few of the plot points were contrived (Vila on the hull of the ship, and his struggles to remain anchored whilst fighting wildly springs to mind). Then there’s the whole issue of just inserting whole story arcs between canon stories, and the fact that given that the actors are aging they’re flogging a dead horse with these stories anyway and, even though I crave more and more stories of this type I also find them paradoxically annoying as well. what a garbled and mismatched set of ramblings! But then, the book sort of has that impact on one, too.
