Just trying to make a point. You have a tendency to cling with absolutely certainty to your preconceptions even when told they are wrong. Try to let the story unfold as it will.
You'd think the fact that *everyone* in this thread is telling him exactly the same thing would at least make him stop and think, no?
Yeah, anyway, Grey 17 is pretty well known as one of the worst episodes of the whole series (of which there are few and it isn't even *that* bad) to the point where even JMS all but disowns it.
The Marcus/Neroon stuff is good, but for various reasons the whole Garibaldi side of the story just didn't come together at the writing stage and the poor execution of the creature just made it worse.
