    Really don't like the proposed new Liberator for a Blake's 7 reboot

    Interior of the proposed new Liberator:



    It is unrecognizable.

    When doing remakes imo it has to add something new. The liberator was so typical of 1970s SciFi it would look just plain wrong nowadays.

    Designs now take a bit more realism into account, like actually allowing enough slave inside for the occupants.

    This doesn't however mean you can't or shouldn't find a good compromise.

    I loved the original BSG and the remake is still my favourite ever TV show SciFi or not!

    In my mind it was the prefect balance between adding a new update and being respectful to the original.

    Accepted. But how different will it be? What will Zen be like? [will it have Zen?] Will there be teleport? Will the ship have auto repair? Will it be built on a vast scale?

    I know that this is just about the ship and there will be other aspects/facets to the reboot, if it takes off, but the design of the ship is what took my eye in this article.

    For those of is who use Big Finish, the original cast are still Blakes 7 as they release new audio plays (same for Dr Who etc). I've seen so many reboots, just finished the latest Tomorrow People (shows your age if you remember the original) and it isn't a patch on the original, same for lots of scifi

    Will the new one shake and wobble as they shut the doors?

    I don't like this concept at all. The whole point of the Liberator was that it was vastly more advanced and considerably more powerful than any single ship humanity had created. This looks like it's been made of junk!

    Even drifting derelict for years the Liberator would have repaired itself to perfect working order in anticipation of it's creators coming along to pick it up.
