Most of all, it was a very important episode for Franklin; who some fans seam to have it in for, though I never understood why exactly.
They do? Didn't know that. Franklin is one of my favorite characters.

I remember hearing back during season three or four that JMS was planning on bringing Franklin senior back during the civil war and I was always curious as to why that was never followed up on.
Personally I wonder if he stayed loyal to Earthdome or defected to Sherian's side.
jms' take:

I think he would tend to fall on the other side, and it'd be good to show that some people may think that yes, there's a problem, but you solve that problem from within, not by breaking away. Could make for some nice drama....
Sounds like a bit of this thread got passed to Lochley when that character was created.

Maybe they weren't clear on how exactly to make Paul Winfield look young.
It was either in the script book or in an interview somewhere that Paul Winfield had some trouble with remembering large amounts of dialogue for his scenes; so perhaps they didn't bring him back in another episode because of that.
