Rage of Empires (Beguiling “Frontier in Space”)

If you have two enormous, powerful entities, sure as hell someone will think it’s a great idea to have them fight. If they’re galactic space empires, so much the better for raising the stakes — at least on paper. But what Frontier in Space is really about is fear: fear of the unknown, the unfamiliar, the notion you might be wrong, and how that fear can lead people (and Draconians) to do terrible things. Oh, it’s also about getting captured repeatedly, and the varying ways one can escape from prison cells, particularly if you happen to have the combined skills of a Time Lord and a special agent from a global peacekeeping force. Yep, you can learn a lot from this very Star Trek-inspired story, although what Ogrons do for fun will forever remain a mystery.

Commentary for Frontier in Space begins at 15:44.
