I didn't know big ships couldn't make jump points (the narn cruisers from a few episodes ago looked pretty big, and they could make jump points, but I guess they weren't as big as I thought).
You've got that backwards. Small ships usually can't make jump points. Opening a jump point requires a lot of power, which generally requires a huge reactor. The Vorlons have compact power sources that let small ships open jump points, but none of the young races do, at least until now.

Convictions - G'Kar and Londo trapped in the elevator were great scenes, although it makes me wonder, again, why there is no personnel communication devices for people besides station personnel.
The show was written before cell phones became ubiquitous. Earthforce communicators are fancy walkies talkies and serve the same purpose. It's one of those things that seems dated because it is.
