Pressure Point

Blake's 7Blake decides to mount a raid on Central Control, the heart of the Federation on Earth. He has contacted Kasabi, the rebel leader on Earth, and made arrangements for liasons with her troops, but before the Liberator arrives, Kasabi and her troops are captured and Travis forces her daughter to comply with his plan, which involves leading Blake and Gan into a trap and stealing their teleport bracelets. Avon and Vila soon arrive, and the crew is off again, working its way through a minefield of traps and finally reaching Central Control: an empty room where Travis and his guards wait. Jenna rescues them by holding Servalan hostage with the help of Kasabi’s daughter, and the crew flees. Travis lobs a percussion grenade at them while they are all still underground, and the explosion triggers a collapse of the roof which kills Gan.
