Seven very different individuals with one common connection: they are all escaped prisoners sentenced to live out the rest of their lives on Cygnus Alpha, a barren and sparsely populated prison planet far from Earth, by a corrupt totalitarian government known as the Terran Federation. Blake, a former resistance leader who had his memories suppressed by the Federation, must now try to hold together his assorted crew of criminals and others. They have control over a very powerful, but mysterious spaceship they call the Liberator. Together they try to bring down the corrupt and tyrannical Federation.

I'm old enough to have watched Blakes 7 in its original run back in the 80s. I recently rewatched it. the things that struck me were just ho wcheqap and nasty th effects were, but also how that didn't really matter because the stories were compelling and some of the performances - and I really mean Avon and Servalan here - made you want to know how things were going to play out, and between those two who would get the upper hand from episode to episode
