Andromeda/Blake's 7

Post 1

Zebedee (still Pool God after all these years)

Has anyone else noticed the similarity between good ol' Blake's 7 and the Andromeda crew and mission?

Let's start at episode 1, season 1 for both...

A crew of seven on what seems to be the most powerful ship in the universe.

The captain - trying to bring peace and harmony to a ruined galaxy.

The computer with a personality.

The big strong one.

The pilot.

The thiefy, non-fighty one.

The engineer.

And then we have the (very) alien pacifist priest and the (slightly - ok you wouldn't know from looking) alien (wannabe) pacifist telepath.

So pretty close, as casting goes.

Any thoughts?
