Welcome to the Blake's 7 Super Sadness Self-Test!
The purpose of this test is simple and obvious enough  -  to see how obsessively well you know Blakes' 7, and if you know it well enough to be able to pick up on all the details, even some of the narrower ones.
The questions aren't absurdly difficult, but you do need to have a strong familiarity with the series to get some of them right.
The quiz is divided into sections, for no better reason than that's the way quizzes usually seem to be presented these days. I recommend you open Notepad or Wordpad or something like that and jot down your answers on that, then click on the mail address below right and cut and paste your answers onto the mail that appears.
Well go on then, get on with it!

Bloopers. This section is a little different. There are many errors that got into the final edit of most episodes of Blake's 7. Each question merely describes a moment in a particular episode. The required answer is a brief description of the error that takes place at the indicated point. NOTE: Although there is only one official answer to each question, there may be more than one blooper in the scenarios described here. If they are confirmed, the points will still be awarded.

1.  In Mission To Destiny, S1, Blake realises that the air on the Ortega is saturated with sono vapour, and decides that the ventilators should be closed.
2.  In Seek-Locate-Destroy, S1, Travis is restrained in the interrogation chair facing the door and tries to shoot Blake. Cally turns the chair away from the door to stop Travis firing again, while Blake destroys the lazeron weapon in his artificial hand.
3.  In Volcano, S3, Cally is captured by Federation troopers aboard the Liberator. In the teleport bay she is gagged and handcuffed and is lined up to be taken down to the planet Obsidian.
4.  In Games, S4, the crew are aboard the Mecron Orbiter, except Dayna who is keeping watch on board Scorpio.
5.  In Bounty, S1, Blake is attacked in the teleport section where he is gassed unconscious. He wakes up in the brig where Vila is trying to unlock his handcuffs.
6.  In Weapon, S2, the clone of Blake barges into the hideout where Coser and Rashel are arguing.
7.  In Gambit, S2, Servalan is explaining to Jarriere her plan to find Docholli and have Krantor "eviscerated". Jarriere offers to kill Krantor for her but Servalan insists that she needs to keep him alive for the time being.
8.  In Aftermath, S3, Avon and Dayna are searching for Orac in the wreckage of the life capsule, when they are attacked by a Sarran.
