Moloch was the result of a computer prediction of the future of life on the planet Sardos. When the survivors of the Federation Fifth Legion took control of Sardos, Colonel Astrid made Moloch a reality, using the matter converters and a programme with a built-in life support to bring him to life. He made him an integral part of the planet’s controlling computer, sealed inside a dome. Astrid later changed his mind and tried to destroy Moloch. Moloch allied with Section Leader Grose and had Astrid imprisoned in a sensory deprivation tank.

Moloch continued to stipulate punishments, ordering Poola handed over to Grose's men for erasing evidence the Liberator had penetrated the planet's energy barrier and the same fate for Servalan once she had fulfilled her role of bringing ships and pilot to Sardos. Grose gave Moloch Tarrant's brain scan in order to come up with a computer programme that would pilot ships by voice command.

After Grose's death, Moloch killed Doran and Chesil with a charge and then revealed himself to Avon, Vila, Tarrant and Dayna. Having acquired a teleport bracelet, he planned to take control of the Liberator, having used Servalan to lure them there. He contacted Cally on the ship using Tarrant's voice and requested teleport. However, the teleport failed to recognise his life support system as part of him. He was teleported out of it and died. (C: Moloch)
