Re: Thoughts on merging/melding B5 and ST technology

True, but I did want to stress that Centauri were one of the more advanced races. Not at Minbari level, but neck and neck with Earth (due to their decline and Earth getting a lot of their technology from them and from the Narn).

The other issue to work out is the logistics of space battles. Trek is ship versus ship, while B5 relies heavily on fighters. I can never seem to reconcile fighters and Federation starships, they just are not designed to carry squadrons of fighters. Even if they could, the ships are just not designed to have them land.
