Breakdown

i.imgur.com/TgtmcTs.jpg

Breakdown opens with a telling view into the universe.
Undeniable proof that Avon's teddy plays an important role in the Blakes 7 series.
Did you ever notice?
In the opening scene you see the constellation Little Bear (Ursa Minor)!
(I marked it with lines for you)
It is true that you miss the star at the top, named Polaris (α Ursae Minoris, also called the North Star, or Pole Star).
But that makes sense, because the view is not from Earth, but from a different position in space.
*******************************************************************************
Roj Bear likes to share a little secret with you:
Avon doesn't know as much about computers as you might think; it is therefore Roj Bear who gives instructions and also chooses the right proddy tool to hand over to Avon…

Roj Bear apologises, he was sent to Earth to fetch some computer parts for Avon.
But he got so confused by the crowds there that he didn't think about asking for teleport and got stuck in the extremely long and chaotic security queues at an airport. He promises to be back soon here!

Poor Roj Bear- being stuck at the airport. I hope you have all of your jabs, Roj Bear!

We have come to the episode of Bounty:

There wasn't much action for Roj Bear in this episode and to pass the time, the teddy bear, taking the title of the episode quite literally, had placed an order at Space Tesco.

Not much to the delight of Avon, who feared that he would soon have to go to Space Dental Care.
Roj, however, insisted on sharing his candy bar with Avon.

Roj bear has a sweet tooth...is he a honey bear?

Lurena, you are making me laugh out loud. What will happen to poor Roj Bear next? Pray what would happen if 'Delephant' is taken away from Tom Chadbon??

Why Del Grant's stuffed elephant, of course. I also have a photo of Gareth Thomas holding same elephant. So that must be Rojephant.

Avon Smiling
And could Roj Bear have anything to do with Bear Avon, the little teddy bear in full leather?
 
Lurena
The episode is Deliverance in which Avon becomes a legend and so does his jacket.
And in which Roj Bear does not go unnoticed.

i.imgur.com/0ffoBOq.jpg

AVON: I have a new jacket! What do you think of it, Blake? It has pockets for tools and a special one on top …

i.imgur.com/biF82tw.jpg

BLAKE: Isn’t it a bit gaudy?
AVON: But it is practical ...

i.imgur.com/9C5o91N.jpg

JENNA: Your Jacket? I’d say, bear in mind that it is supposed to be practical.

i.imgur.com/fe9pxZW.jpg

MEEGAT (startled by Roj’s presence, made a slip): And Meegat speaks his name … Lord Bear

I guess so OSP, but you should ask Littlesue about that, she took the duty to examine it last weekend.
However, she was so impressed with the garment that she did not notice the presence of one of its users!

How did I not spot him?
I have checked the photos that Dearest took, and that sneaky Roj Bear is not there. He must have been hiding.
And BTW, THAT jacket is really nice and soft to touch Grin
Cold! You don't know the meaning of the word cold!
Cold is when you have ice on the INSIDE of your window!!

In the episode Orac radiation sickness affects some of the crew.
Avon would be the last to admit that he is quite ill. A Teddy can come in handy then! (or is it that Roj Bear uses Kerr Avon for his own purpose …)

i.imgur.com/9y6InSg.jpg

Blake: Radiation sickness? Your Teddy? Are you feeling well?
Avon: Yes, my Teddy is feeling ill…

i.imgur.com/0BHoMVn.jpg

There you are! Cally’s device proves it; Roj Bear is radioactive.

i.imgur.com/ymdSC9h.jpg

Poor little bear, but a few decontaminant drugs and you’ll be better soon!

i.imgur.com/O4M51eY.jpg

What do you mean “you’re looking much better”? My Teddy is feeling better!

i.imgur.com/V9nJtBb.jpg

Here is where the friendship Roj Bear - Orac starts;
Avon’s try to see if Roj Bear fits into Orac. ('scientific experiment' on the bear’s request )

Oh yes, Roj Bear appears to be familiar with the theory of molecular reduction!
To be specific, stabilized atomic implosion.
Later on Roj shares his knowledge with his new friend Orac, in case you're wondering where Orac's knowledge came from in the episode Gambit.
With a little bit of reduction and a hammock the bear finds a comfortable place in Orac's interior.
Brace yourself, this can cause problems...

Roj Bear is back for series B!
Enjoy!

The fabulous episode Redemption is full of hints about the plot.
You may not have noticed them, but from now on you will!

The prediction (hint outlined in red)
AVON Slow or fast, it will still look the same.

i.imgur.com/lf1CFIK.jpg

The configuration of the stars. (Ursa Minor-once again)
AVON Look at it, Blake. Look at the configuration of the stars.

i.imgur.com/zgmH0fP.jpg

Waking the bear to make Orac function again (there is a team, see Orac episode)
AVON Now then, are you going to function or are you not?

i.imgur.com/sS4EHVs.jpg

Who saved the day?
BLAKE Well, what happened? (Laughs, walks over to Orac)

I love these, I now want to draw Avon with Roj Bear.
I have never understood why it should be necessary to become irrational to prove that you care, or indeed why it should be necessary to prove it at all.

Just returned to this thread after a break. Good to see Avon's concern for Ted's dental hygiene – completely cracked me up Lurena.
Don't philosophise at me you electronic moron.

SHADOW

i.imgur.com/WBIe8lc.jpg

Blake seeks the help of the Terra Nostra to fight the Federation, but this criminal organization controls the deadly drug Shadow. It needs a brave bear to discover the link between the Terra Nostra and the Federation! And also to provide the poor lonesome telepath Cally with a soulmate.

If only noticed … Foreshadowing the fate…
i.imgur.com/6AoYbcn.jpg

Gan(after consultation with the costume designer): Avon insisted on having a breast pocket in this costume. Any idea why?
i.imgur.com/uvsgL0u.jpg

We see a disappointed Roj Bear in swim shorts (after the Zondar guards are thrown into the pond): I thought we were going for a swim too…
i.imgur.com/OR6E3K4.jpg

To make everyone believe in the Moon Discs' telekinetic abilities, and to make Cally happy, the tough bear makes the Moon Disc move, using one of Avon's proddy tools!

It’s a foggy morning in Surrey. The kids were a pain to get off to school on time. But I am now sipping coffee and being thoroughly entertained by the amazing adventures of Roj Bear and moved by Lurena’s tribute to Paul Darrow. Thank you Lurena! You are a star.

Lurena, considering how the story ends for our favourite humans, I am now beginning to worry about the fate of Roj Bear...
How did it come to this?! You made me care! For Roj Bear!
Yes, I am aware that I am a poet and therefore I DID know it but you must ensure the safety of our furry friend...
I may lose sleep over this... Smile

My people have a saying:

Can it also be reciprocal?
Just take a look at their facial expression...

Weapon, ah this is an excellent episode!

Since Roj Bear has a good relationship with Orac, he is well informed about the developments in the field of weaponry.

See here what happened in the background to protect Avon's life (and the lives of the crew).

The Teddy kept a close eye on the events and even dressed himself stylishly according to the theme of the episode with the Collar of Doom.

i.imgur.com/r5KqYvc.jpg

Don't ask how he acquired the defensive device, after all it's B7, and the bear clearly had more sources, connections and data.

Blake (somewhat irritated): Was it really necessary to bring your teddy?
Avon: So what?

When Travis marked the crew, Roj Bear managed to aim and nullify the effect of IMIPAK from an adjacent hidden niche with his KAPIMI (Key And Projector Impact Mediation Instrument) !
