Power Play Volcano Dawn of the Gods

Avon is following the rumors of Blake being seen on Obsidian, a planet ruled by a friend of Dayna's father, but they discover the rumor to be false, and their presence is betrayed to Servalan. They're hoping to discover a planet that can serve as a base, but Obsidian is a planet of peace protected by its intention to blow itself up if they would be invaded. They are. And they do.

Avon:Dayna says the people are friendly, but then sometimes one's friends can be more of a liability than one's enemies.
Vila:They're gonna check out that rumor, too, don't forget.
Avon:That Blake was here? It's getting to be a fairly common rumor. We could spend the rest of our lives chasing down the ones that we've picked up so far.
Cally:Still, now we're here.
Avon:Now we're here.

Commander:    Why should they land there? I mean, what's so special about the planet Obsidian?
Servalan:They are investigating its strategic value, which is real, and a rumor, which is not.

Avon:Zen was picking up a signal from the ground. It could have been some kind of beam approach detector.
Cally:You didn't say anything at the time.
Avon:No, I didn't.
Cally:Why was that?
Avon:Because I wasn't sure.
Cally:That wasn't the reason, Avon?
Avon:No, it wasn't.
Vila:You gonna let me in on the secret?
Avon:You wouldn't understand it if we did.
Vila:My classification might be grade 4 ignorant, but I'm not stupid. I bought that classification from a friend of the testing center. I didn't want to be a space captain, now did I? I was right. They all ended up getting killed, didn't they?
Cally:Tarrant survived.
Vila:Oh, yes, and says he was a space captain, but then he says a lot of things. You don't have to believe it all, do you?
Avon:I would be more inclined to believe that he was a captain, then that you could have been.
Vila:Well, never mind about me. It's Tarrant that you should be worried about, and not just because he's been out of contact for an hour.
Cally:And what about Dayna, don't you trust her either?
Vila:Dayna's a different case entirely.
Cally:Well, she's pretty, for one thing.
Vila:Pretty? Yes, I suppose she is. I hadn't really noticed.
Avon:We've seen you not really noticing. Frequently.

.[Dayna's father was a friend of the leader of this planet's son. They've come looking for Blake and for a home base.]
Son:Then why do you come here?
Tarrant:Surely we're not the first.
Son:What do you mean?
Dayna:    A man called Blake, hasn't he contacted you? We heard he'd been here.
Son:No one has been here.
Tarrant:We need a planet as a home base, somewhere that's not been ruined by the war. And we need recruits. This might do. You're situated in a very important strategic position.

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.
