@ the doctor
Interestingly, this is 4 years before the anti-vax movement started, and this is a good encapsulation of that daftness.
anti-vaccination movement has a very long history way before kareninitis hit the humankind. smallpox for example

The Hyperion is a really ugly ship.

I feel personally attacked!


Blocky design for 'inferior human tech' is an old thing in science fiction. I can't seem to find where it originated but there are a lot of such designs everywhere. Many games and other sci-fi works utilize robust, bulky and blocky 'function over form' for depicting earth starship designs and I honestly sort of like them. Any help with finding origins of robust construction design in sci-fi works would be greatly appreciated.

Good allegory for post-WWII Allies lusting for Fascist scientists and their research

That's a good allegory for human selfishness and it has nothing to do with any exact historical thing

I did a comparison and its on same level, or even a bit better with shapes. Fite me but it is beautiful.

though i image the narn and centauri throw f bombs at each other in centauri.centaurian?centaurianese?

I'd say that they do it in their respective languages with the pun point being the fact that both centauri and narn know each other's languages, know that other party understands what they said but refuse to acknowledge the fact of knowing

ps
or worse, in narnese. Point being the centauri are of such low expectations of narns that they think no narn speaks or able to understand a second language. Fits centaurian decadent arrogance

God G'Kar and Londo are so good.

I never seen a show with such chemistry like them. Well, from the 'nerdy fiction' stuff, so far.
