Trial Killer Hostage

Blake sends Avon and Vila down to steal a communication crystal, and Avon finds an old friend he blackmails into helping. Consistent with his history, Avon is once more betrayed, as Tynus sends word to the federation that Liberator is here. But Liberator isn't the only ship in the area. The station has just recovered a 700 year old ship that Cally recognizes as a plague ship. Blake warns the station but an autopsy releases the plague and the crew listens to the last transmissions from the men they know are dying.

Avon:Alright, the TP crystal is part of the A-line converter. Is that right?
Tynus:    Yes.
Avon:Then it will have to break down.
Tynus:Will it?
Avon:You can arrange a little malfunction there, then apply for the replacement crystal and we'll take the old one. We don't mind secondhand goods, do we Vila?
Vila:No. We're not fussy.
Tynus:I don't think you know what you're asking.
Avon:I know exactly what I'm asking.
Tynus:[responding to a beep] I'm wanted.
Avon:What's your answer?
Tynus:I'll have to think about it. I must go.
Vila:I hope you can trust him.
Avon:I told you, he's a friend of mine.
Vila:Yes, I always knew you had a friend. I used to say to people, "I bet Avon's got a friend somewhere in the galaxy."
Avon:And you were right. That must be a novel experience.

Avon:Let's get back to the TP crystal. That's what we're here for.
Tynus:You know you're asking me to commit suicide.
Avon:Is there something wrong with your memory, Tynus? You owe me. Remember?
Tynus:Not enough to put my head on the block.
Avon:We were in a fraud together. When I was arrested, I kept my mouth shut. If I hadn't, old friend, you would be sweating away the rest of your life on a convict planet. And that could still happen if I were to let the authorities know.
Tynus:So that's the way it is.
Avon:Well, let's just say that I did you a favor, and now I'm collecting.
Vila:Nice. When Avon holds out the hand of friendship, be careful of his other hand. That's the one with the hammer.

Vila:You don't have a lot of time for Blake, do you?
Avon:I could never stand heroes.
Vila:A quarter of a million volts and you're putting your hand in?
Avon:Ah, but that is self-interest. We need that crystal. Blake takes risks to help other people - sometimes people he doesn't even know. One day that great big bleeding heart of his will get us all killed.
Vila:Unless someone ditches him first.

The Blakes 7 episodes are available in PAL DVDs through Amazon.com UK. For people in the US, these DVDs will play on your computer, but NOT on your TV. The only safe way to play them on your computer is in an external DVD player devoted ONLY to PAL DVDs. When you put a DVD into a DVD drive, it's able to tell whether the DVD is PAL or NTSC (US standard) and play the DVD correctly. But it will ONLY SWITCH BACK AND FORTH something like 7 times. After that, it stays on whatever was played in it last. So if you only have a single DVD player, you could get it stuck being ONLY able to play PAL DVDs. But you're safe if you attach an extra DVD player to your computer and use it exclusively for PAL DVDs.
