Talia's cover wasn't blown until the very end of the episode, though, right?

Correct. Talia was still on the station until she could be retrieved by the Psi Corps. The little bit we saw after her implanted personality took over, was most likely her being kept locked up until a proper escort could arrive to take her away.

Why would the command deck ever be empty?
Regular maintenance cycle. Garibaldi mentions it in "Midnight on the Firing Line" (IIRC).

Andreas Katsulas's G'Kar is still a favorite among the cast of characters, and I think the development he got in the second season was a great tragic twist.
It gets better.

What did you think of "Confessions and Lamentations"? The ending shocked me when I first saw it because I just wasn't expecting it.

I thought it was over the top. I get that all the aliens that went into the self-imposed quarantine would likely die, but for all of them to die PLUS the ones that were still on their world at about the same time doesn't make sense, simply because it didn't take varyin' metabolic rate into account. Sure, they would all die, but it wasn't like there was a tickin' clock for all of 'em.

I did, however, like the little girl's answer to Delenn's question. It reminded me of my oldest nephew.

^Hmm, good point. That hadn't occurred to me before, but you're right.

Oh well, not like its ever used all that much. Maybe it's a batting cage with a holographic illusion of a field?

That's always been my opinion.

"Confessions and Lamentations".....one of the few exceptions to JMS' "No robots or cute kids!" rule. Of course, the kid died, so.....

My oldest nephew just turned nine this summer, and a few months before I moved, he told me he found out what my name was. For his whole life, I've been "Uncle T" and my sister finally told him that my name wasn't just the letter T.

So, tomorrow, I'll either start the third season of Babylon 5 or the first season of Heroes...

...a coin flip will decide.

Coin flip? I've heard a lot of good things about Heroes, but this is the television season that has "Severed Dreams" we're talking about here. It's got to be Babylon 5, no contest.

What's wrong with a good ol' fashioned coin flip?

Re: Niners Unite...around Babylon 5! - The Lost Threads

"TKO"

Zzzzzz, pretty boring. Crappy karate kid/rocky type storyline going on, then when the fight actually starts its like something out of WWE when they're exchanging punches. I also found the Ivanova father thing a bit boring as well, even if it did show a bit more of her past.

"Grail"

Good episode I thought. The guy looking for the holy grail was hella cool, and I liked how he took the jinx under his wing. It was pretty funny at the end when they're watching him leave with bated breath . I didn't really notice that the Minbari have a caste society, but that explains why the Minbari on B5 don't seem to be a species which had just been involved in a war with Earth - they're the religious part, not the warrior caste.

Some random thoughts so far

I don't really like that there seems to be 3 main characters, as in the ones who run the station. Seems sort of low. Sometimes the seemingly low budget does get to me, and the music can be a little instrusive at times but it doesn't detract too much from the show itself which has been good so far, at times the music seems to play like they had just won a stage in a vidyagame.
