In space no one can hear you smile

I have already reviewed Mission to Destiny, but in those days I was a much younger cat and I was not so good at posting pictures on my Big Gay Longblog (which wasn't as Big or Long back then, but it was just as Gay). Here are some of the best moments in Mission to Destiny, and more not nearly enough pictures of Avon.

Coming between the Blake and Travis heavy episodes of Seek-Locate-Destroy and Duel, Mission to Destiny is one of the best stories in season one for having lots of scenes with Avon in them.

I think this is the episode where Paul Darrow makes his first concerted effort to steal the show from Gareth Thomas. Or maybe he knew that he could steal the show whenever he wanted to, and just wanted to show off a bit.

Avon has a rare moment of derp.

Avon spends most of the episode working with Cally instead of Blake. I think you can see in his face that he would rather be with Blake.

"My people have a saying: A man who trusts can never be betrayed, only mistaken."
"Life expectancy must be fairly short among your people." 

When Avon figures something out or has an idea or a plan, he smiles. These make for the best bits of the story.


Action Avon! This is from the end of the episode when Avon punches the baddy in the face. Action Avon is almost as good as Smiling Avon. Both are, of course, great.
