Yeah, it's explicitly getting the food before it spoils that's the issue.

Also quarantine for organic stuff.

The curse talk is such vacuous bollocks. B5 was made with a cast largely comprised of people in their 40s, with addictions or underlying conditions. A quarter of a century ago. It's no wonder some of them are dead.

For comparison, Star Trek TOS was made with a cast largely comprised of people in their 30s, half a century ago. It's no wonder some of them are alive.

S2E21 - Comes the Inquisitor


Not sure how they got the message back from Narn in 24 hours using the rangers, also. Seems impossible without so-far unheard of tech. Even the psychic link we saw from the Centauri Emperor wouldn't help with a video feed.



Ivanova was calling earth in season 1. They clearly have ftl communications. Centauri are probably jamming all signals from Narn

It looks like itíd be hell to wear. Iíve been vaguely looking at Kosh cosplay possibilities in the last couple of weeks, and doing a breakdown of what itíd require. Basically youíre putting a lot of weight on your shoulders, and thatís less than ideal.

Put the head and shoulders on a broom an make a taller cloak.

I will take any B5 CGI over the vomit inducing BSG shaky-cam. Also I hope there is a special place in hell for whoever had the idea to fast forward the whole episode during intro.

For a remaster you can add polygons to the models, pixels to the textures, logic to the shaders, but don't you dare touch the composition or animation.

The main thread has a bunch of clips where exactly this has been done.

3. Why can't the telepath tell why someone doesn't like her? I mean, having telepathy and all. (Addendum, later on: oh, so I guess she has to touch a person to read them.)

They have rules. No scanning without permission.

  • I haven't mentioned it before, but I love how tense it is that they're just sitting right next to a gate that anything could pop out of at any time.

Think of the gate as the door to your house. There are more ways in than just the door.

  • I also have an astronomical quibble with the ending of the B plot. The light-years thing may work from a timing perspective, but the light reaching them just then still wouldn't be the same light that touched (or at least grazed) the mountain unless the star, planet and station all happened to precisely line up at the exact correct moment. I don't know, maybe I'm just misunderstanding the phrase "the sunlight that has touched the mountain", and the timing is good enough. And it's implied that no one had thought of this technicality before, so it's likely there's no official theological ruling on it anyway and they're just kind of playing it by ear. So yeah, quibble withdrawn.


You are trying to make sense of religion

Most prominently in episode 17 when she resolves the tension of some warrior caste bigshot causing trouble by just dragging him into a room and using her authority to just order him to stop and apologize.
