^How very Vorlon like of you.
I prefer a Vorlon over a Vogon any time!
The poetry should be better if nothing else.
Having never heard any, I'm guessing Vorlon poetry is the kind of play with words we humans would call straight talking -because most of their normal talk actually sounds rather poetic

Vorlons do have an "Hour of Scampering". I always wondered what that meant.

I assume it's Kosh's poetic way or referring to Babylon 5's equivalent of rush hour.

no big deal, considering that a bat'leth has a minimum of 3 edges

Re: Any old timers still around?

I liked seeing 23rd century bat'leths in the new movie. They were a nice evolutionary midpoint between the Sword of Kahless and the handful shown in Enterprise and the famous model that was used on the three different 24th century series. For all the complaining that J.J.'s take on an alternate timeline is too different and too dismissive of what came before he, Orci and Kurtzman have thrown a lot of familiar canon into the new films that fit in perfectly with the era in which they're set.

Re: Any old timers still around?

haven't seen the new one yet. Would you recommend it?
*Takes close look at bat'leth pic with reading glasses and discovers 2 more edges opposite of #1 and #3* oops - guess it shows that I prefer a 2-edged one-and-a-half-hander...
