Arise, ye workers from your slumber,
Arise, ye prisoners of want.
For reason in revolt now thunders,
and at last ends the age of cant!
Away with all your superstitions,
Servile masses, arise, arise!
We’ll change henceforth the old tradition,
And spurn the dust to win the prize!
So comrades, come rally,
And the last fight let us face.
The Interstellar,
Unites the human race.
So comrades, come rally,
And the last fight let us face.
The Interstellar,
Unites the human race.

In this episode the Northern Comrades man the barricades and consider rebellions in space. Starting with the bourgeois deviation from the class struggle that is Star Wars, they proceed to consider the splitter tendencies of Blakes 7 with deviations into:

  • The stark analogues of Battlestar Galactica
  • Different countries view of rebellion
  • Emotion and Reason in revolt
  • Subtle rebellion in Babylon 5
  • Whig history and space revolts
  • Are you revolting for or against something?
  • The Marquis and the Bajoran Revolution
  • Where’s Star Wars Call-Me-Kenneth
  • The complexities of Farscape
  • Mal Reynolds two-fingered revolt
Raise the banner and join us of the barricades.
