Re: Babylon 5 vs Deep Space Nine
While my comparison of the Shadows to EVIL!!! was perhaps a simplification, my point was that while the Dominion had at least three separate races comprising it, all of which were shown on occasion as having their own dimensions and not necessarily being in accord with the whole, the Shadows were never shown as having that level of complexity.
You never saw a Shadow speak out against the rest of its race, for instance.OTOH we saw both Jem'hadar and Vorta who disagreed with the Dominion's overall policy.
