Something Terrible, traumatic and frankly suicidal for ratings was the decision to destroy the Liberator. Given that even Blake himself was not in the series, losing such an Iconic Ship wasn’t great from a viewer perspective, it rocked my adolescent world.
Despite My issues at the time (!) I took it upon myself to purchase the said villian of the peace…..the dire space hulk that is, was the Scorpio………….I’ll probably use it as a cargo vessel to deliver the weekly Internet Tesco’s Shop to Tatooine!!!!
It could never replace the Liberator, but it isn’t too bad a design, it’s likeness is styled by Admiral Duck Sauce on shapeways
