Trivia

This episode originally ran short, so new footage was added later, including the scene with Dione in Sandra's quarters, as well as all scenes aboard Dione's spaceship at the episode's start. In addition, the ending was changed; originally, Koenig had simply given Talos the coordinates of the Bethan gunship, sparing Alpha, which was changed to Koenig's sneaky ploy of taking matters into his own hands.

One of the better episodes
3 May 2019 | by RrrobertSee all my reviews

Entertaining fast moving adventure story.

The villains are great, the story engaging, and there is a real sense of urgency.

Caroline Mortimer is fantastic as a sexy, fiendish warmonger.

The sets and costumes are really cool.
