Blake's 7: Horizon

Liberator follows a Federation cargo ship going to an unknown planet, in an unknown part of the galaxy, known as Horizon. However, Zen doesn’t know anything about the planet or why the Federation ship is visiting the planet.

Blake and Jena beam down, but get captured by the ruler of the planet, who appears to be a dupe of the Federation. However, the ruler seems to have seconds thoughts a bought the Federations plans for Horizon. He begins to see his people are actually slaves and not the happy people he thought they were.

Episode Quotes
Blake: Where are we going to find a center that'll take us in for a month's rest and rehabilitation?
Vila: Well, that shouldn't be a problem. What's the point of being famous if you can't get a last-minute booking?

Avon: (to Blake) Oh, you are curious! I'm glad we have a worthwhile reason!

(Cally injects Vila with soma, a sedative)
Cally: He'll be sleepy now for about half an hour.
Avon: That will be nice.

Vila: Why don't you go?
Avon: You are expendable.
Vila: And you're not?
Avon: No, I'm not expendable, I'm not stupid and I'm not going.

Blake: Does the Federation frighten you?
Ro: Of course not.
Jenna: Then you must be part of it.

Avon: And then there was one.
