Blake is summoned telepathically to a rebel base where he meets the former Arbiter General of the Federation and rebel leader Shivan, who was rumored killed but appears bandaged head to toe. They are going to take Blake to a meeting of outer world governors to depose Federation rule and install Blake, Shivan and Governor Le Grand as a civilian triumvirate. But Servalan and Travis have known of the scheme all along, and Travis, who has been disguised as Shivan from the outset of the plot, uses the telepathic homing device used on Blake to slow down the crew’s escape from the meeting.
