Product Description


Effectively one play (the wraparound sequence of the first story, The Dust Run leads directly into the events of The Trial), Simon Guerrier's prequel to the revamped Blake's 7 is one of the strongest releases yet from B7 Media. --Total Sci-Fi Online

Yet another quality product from B7 Media following on from their other Early Year sequels.
These stories trace the back story of Jenna Stanis fleshing out her character to date only heard on the first season audio adventures. The first story, The Dust Run, is set some time before the season one adventures and paints the picture of Jenna as a competitive space pilot but shows glimpses of what is possibly her true nature. The second Story, The Trial, describes the lead up to Season One and if you've heard this you will hear the link.
Overall another excellent story albeit too short. Highly recommended.

I've always thought of Cally as one of the more interesting regular series characters of the original series, a lone surviving Auron warrior whom Blake, Avon and Villa first met on the planet Saurian Major (in the television story "Time Squad"). It was not until third season story "Children of Auron" that the series dealt with the subject of her people's bio-replication, something that I believe this new CD title attempts to further explore. After the previous couple of `Early Years' titles making welcome use of the classic original series theme tune I was a tad puzzled that this `Cally' title elects to instead use the `new audio range' title music as found on the Season One B7 Media audio re-imaging of early television scripts. Maybe this is to closer link her early years back-story with Cally's arrival in the (supposedly) forthcoming second audio season whenever it eventually gets released. Essentially I found the `search for a crashed pilot' premise of "Blood and Earth" fairly routine which is only notable for the telepathic race history interplay between Ariane Cally and Aunty which offers the welcome return of Jan Chappell in the latter mysterious role. Much more satisfying is "Flag and Flame" which serves up `a dangerous one-way mission investigating Federation incursions in the Dancer Cluster' providing suitable levels of tension, excitement and poignant emotive interplay between characters. Another reason why I think that this second story is a stronger offering is in part due to guest star Michael Cochrane whom imbues Commander Gresham with a believable level of relaxed authority and for me greatly enhances my enjoyment of the story. A pleasant enough if fairly unremarkable title, these two stories are I guess more for the keen Blake's 7 enthusiast rather than the casual sci-fi fan but I for one feel it's a reasonably satisfying addition to B7 Media's catalogue of Terry Nation series inspired full cast audio titles.
