What happened...

...to the Liberator's riches in Blake's 7 !? In the 3rd Episode of Series 1 while Blake is on Cygnus Alpha, Jenna discovers a room which she tells Avon he must see, although we never see the room Avon says there must be millions and millions in there.

JENNA But what about Blake?
AVON What about him?
JENNA No.
AVON We could own our own planet.
BLAKE We're not leaving him there.
AVON We have to. He's a crusader. He'll look upon all this as just one more weapon to use against the Federation. And he can't win. You know he can't win. What do you want to be rich or dead? (picks up necklace) We might never have this opportunity again.
JENNA An hour. We'll wait an hour. If he's not back by then we'll leave.
AVON Why? Why wait?
JENNA Because that way I can convince myself that we gave him a fair chance. If he's not back by then.... (walks away)
AVON All right.

As far as I know the stash of riches is never mentioned again. So why didn't Villa, Gan, or later Cally find the room ? Why didn't they use it to buy arms, or ships to help fight the Federation ?

Well you see shortly after this episode the Federation suffered a galaxy wide total economic and credit meltdown thus rendering Avons loot worthless!

Only in science fiction could you imagine such a diasterous premise.

Bad writing?

And where's the revolving lift from the entry hatch to the Control Deck gone?
