* Although colonization from Earth populated many planets, there are several cases where human-looking populations clearly were present on their homeworlds for more than 300 years, particularly primitive populations who would probably need time to build up their own cultures after botched colonization attempts that left them without technology, or wars that achieved the same result. Blake's 7 has a major case of AmbiguouslyHuman when it comes to the planet of the week. I can buy the Helots as humans as they're specifically said to have been an Earth colony, as was the planet with the "Hiteks" and the "Primitives." However Keezarn and several other planets like the one from "Duel" clearly had CivilizationS of either parallel-evolved humans or aliens that closely resembled humans without any distinguishing marks, thousands of years before the series. I think it's more reasonable to assume that B7 takes place farther in the future than in traditionally accepted by fans. The construction of Terminal and the remarkable feat of moving it to another star system suggests power the Federation never demonstrates otherwise (THOUGH it's not clear if the Federation was responsible). Accelerated evolution being the purpose of the planet, it's hard to infer its actual age by loooking at the wildlife there.

[[WMG: Where did those platinum-blonde humanoids on Terminal come from, what are their origins, allegiances, etc?]]
Okay, first, I love the episode "Terminal." But I never understood where those two platinum blonde humanoids came from. Were they natives of Terminal, perhaps an evolutionarily accelerated human lineage, split off from the evolution of the "Links," the ape-like creatures that Servalan calls humanity's future. Well I think I finally figured it out. Later in the series, a group of Mutoids appear who don't look anything like the other mutoids we see in the series with one exception: that same, long, platinum-blonde hair (previous Mutoids were hairless their heads capped by a large cybernetic device, and had a different, more ornate uniform). On Terminal, perhaps a group of such Mutoids (why should we assume there's only one Mutoid model?) were used by Servalan. Only problem: they had names, unlike other Mutoids, but who knows what Servalan might have modified them for. If you can take away a slave's ID before Mutoid modification, maybe there's a way to restore it (as Travis implies early in the series to a particularly attractive Mutoid. So either they were Mutoids dressed in something other than black uniforms, natives of Terminal, or some offshoot of humans or near-human species that Servalan hired for her purposes. I personally support the natural origin on Terminal and unusual Mutoid variant theories, either would work without much more explanation. Servalan probably "humanized" the Mutoids on Terminal for her own reasons. She's that manipulative. Otherwise, they could have been hyper-accelerated humans or human-like beings that split off from the accelerated evolutionary track that led to the Links, making them similar to human beings in comparison to Chimpanzees.

Okay, first, I love the episode "Terminal." But I never understood where those two platinum blonde humanoids helping Servalan came from. Were they natives of Terminal, perhaps an evolutionarily accelerated human lineage, split off from the evolution of the "Links," the ape-like creatures that Servalan calls humanity's future. Well I think I finally figured it out. future? Terminal was supposed to be a laboratory for hyper-accelerated evolution. There is some evidence that they are a form of Mutoid: Later in the series, a group of Mutoids appear who don't look anything like the other mutoids Mutoids we see in the series with one exception: that same, series, but they do have long, platinum-blonde hair (previous Mutoids were hairless hairless, their heads capped by a large cybernetic device, and had a different, more ornate different less utilitarian uniform).

If you can take away a slave's ID before Mutoid modification, maybe there's a way to restore it modification (as Travis implies early in the series to a particularly attractive Mutoid. Mutoid) maybe it can be restored or replaced with a different identity. So either they were Mutoids dressed in something other than standard black uniforms, natives of Terminal, or some offshoot of humans or near-human species that Servalan hired for her purposes. I personally support purposes, but what would she have needed from them if they weren't connected to Terminal in some way? Could they be the natural origin descendants of the scientists who built and moved Terminal? Personally I think they evolved on Terminal and they're basically super-evolved humans, genetic cousins of the Ape-like Links, but it's still possible they were an unusual Mutoid variant theories, either would work without much more explanation. Servalan probably "humanized" the Mutoids on Terminal for her own reasons. She's that manipulative.
