Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Picking up where season two left off, the third season of Blakes 7 was launched with the episode titled "Aftermath." With the intergalactic war coming to an end, the crew of the Liberator -- minus the titular Blake and crew member Jenna (actors Gareth Thomas and Sally Knyvette had left the series) -- evacuates the ship via individual space pods. Avon (Paul Darrow) lands on the planet Sarran, along with his hated adversary, Federation President Servalan (Jacqueline Pearce). The two enemies are rescued from a hostile tribe by a pair of fellow fugitives, Hal Mellanby (Cy Grant) and his daughter, Dayna (Josette Simon in her first series appearance). Servalan returns the favor by killing Mellanby, whereupon Dayna casts her lot with the surviving Liberator crewpersons. "Aftermath" first aired on January 7, 1980.
