Story notes[]

Because this book was written before the episodes it adapts were completed, Hoyle worked from the shooting scripts. As a result, it contains several slight deviations from the finished episodes. For example:-

  • Dorian is described as having "black glossy hair that hung down to the grimy collar of his crumpled space fatigues."
  • Slave is "nothing more impressive than a tiny panel of winking lights set into the bulkhead."
