Press here to listen to the sound"Jenna Stannis"

NAME: Jenna Stannis
BORN: Earth
RANK / POSITION: Space Pilot
STATUS: Outlaw
FIRST APPEARANCE: The Way Back - Alerts Blake to the fact that his watch has been stolen by Vila.
QUIRKS: Fancies Blake.
INTERESTS: Jewellery
CRIMES: Smuggling "Free Trader".


We first meet Jenna Stannis in The Way Back, the very first episode of Blakes 7. She is the only woman prisoner awaiting to be transported to Cygnus Alpha, which tells us she is someone special.

She seems to take a liking to Blake, perhaps partly because she feels sorry for him. After all Blake is hardly a common criminal, unlike his fellow inmates, so perhaps Jenna feels that he’s in uncharted waters.

Clearly Blake grows on Jenna. Not only does she play an active role in his plan to gain control of the prison ship London, but after they gain control of the Liberator, when Blake teleports down to Cygnus Alpha, Jenna chooses to put her faith in Blake, rather than taking the chance to run off with Avon. Likewise, in Bounty, rather than throw in her lot with some of her old ‘friends’ from the smuggling fraternity, she stays loyal to Blake, even though this is not apparent straight away.

As the series progresses Jenna’s role tends to become more of the damsel in distress. In Duel she’s captured by Travis, in Deliverance by the Scavengers on Cephlon, and as result gets radiation sickness, along with Avon, Vila and Gan who try to rescue her. In the second series, she does have the odd moment of glory. In Redemption, her skill is needed to pilot the Liberator in order to make good their escape from Spaceworld, while in Pressure Point she single handedly forces Servalan to order the release of the remaining members of the crew after Travis has lured them into what they think is the Federation’s control centre.

After the climatic final episode of the second series, Star One, we see no more of Jenna. I often wonder whether it is significant that Jenna also leaves the Liberator crew at the same time as Blake, at the end of the Second Series. Do they secretly elope? In Aftermath, Avon learns that she has been picked up by a freighter, but that is the last we hear of her until the final episode of the fourth season, Blake, where Blake tells Avon that Jenna is now dead, a fate soon to be shared by all the others except Avon. Blake does not elaborate on how Jenna died, but I hope that if she did die, her death was a heroic one.
