We tried recover it with a SATA cable we purchased.
Then we took it to The Local Computer Guy's Shop (tm).
Local Computer Guy (tm) sent it off to some pros who quoted the recovery at a frakking exhorbinant 2k!
So...goodbye, TSF Harddrive. We will miss your sources and quotes which had made light work of so many arguments.
We shall begin from scratch. Like a phoenix from the ashes...or something.
