So, they were were all over the place and they bumped into everyone... And that seems contrived? The whole point is that they are all over the place

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

Long hair makes guys 'look gay'???

I think quite the opposite. Nuthin' revs my engine like a guy with long hair!

Do you think Marcus 'looks gay' too?

Couldn't tell ya - I had my nephew with me and hadn't seen a full episode of Babylon 5 at the time, just noticed the binder as I passed her table, and decided to keep the nephew away. He is just a kid.

Yeah, I got that that was the point. My problem was every where they went, aside from two places (wherever they ate lunch & where they watched the battle), they were surrounded by folks in the openin' credits, overhearin' key bits of info to the episode. Sheridan & Lochley walk down the hall, passin' these two losers. Lochley chews Garibaldi's ass in a lift, those two losers are there, tryin' to blend into the wall. Mollari & G'Kar have one of their standard conversations, with the two losers on the bunk right next to G'Kar. And then, twice, all they have to do is round a corner, and they are face to face with yet more openin' credits characters.

It was all just too damn much.

TNG 'Lower Decks' had the same sort of idea, and it was done a hell of a lot better in that episode than in this one.

Didn't say that, just said Byron's long hair makes him look gay.

Perv!

No, but the facial hair helped.

If long hair makes you look gay, I am glad I got a haircut 3 days ago!

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

Again, I'm not sayin' a guy havin' long hair makes him look gay - I'm sayin' this particular character looks gay because of the long hair.

I really have to disagree here. Neither episode felt "contrived" to me, but then perhaps I let things like that slide because I look at the creative attempt to tell a story from outside the main set of characters. I tend to think that "Lower Decks" was a bit better because the story in that episode was a little more tightly woven, and did have a nice emotional resonance to it. But "contrived"? No, I can't see that, if for no other reason than because that is precisely the way the characters were supposed to execute the story in each episode. Maybe I'm too forgiving but that's the way I view it. We know enough about the mainline characters, so the story focuses on these one-off guys (well, okay Sito Jaxa appeared twice ). And yet it is those characters which drive each series as a whole and are thus needed in at least SOME manner.

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

Wow, the whole Sinclair/Valen thing was really well done. They could easily have just said "time changed". Props to the writers.

I might have missed something, since I was really godamn tired during Part 1 and was struggling to keep my eyes open, but wasn't there a part were they're talking about the flashback to Babylon 5 being boarded by shadows. Now, was that a -possible- future which is now averted? That's what I assumed cause Sinclair was in that, and is now 1000 years in the past.

I think that was averted since Sinclair left Garibaldi behind on Babylon 5 instead of takin' him to Babylon 4.

Or something...

And Nurse Ogawa had been a recurrin' character on TNG since TNG 'The Host' (she also appeared in TNG 'Future Imperfect', but that shouldn't count, since it was a holographic simulation for Riker's benefit).

No, leaving Garibaldi behind was simply to spare him the super-aging Sinclair experienced.

The alternate future in which the Shadows overran B5 is what would have happened if Sinclair had not gone back and become Valen.

Which does not mean that all of that look at the future won't happen....

Has anybody ever told you that you're a master at understatement? Well?? Tell us what you thought of the last half of the season? And did you experience that strange phenomenon that many have reported about 'Sleeping in Light', that it seems that you're watching some parts of it with a layer of water between your eye and the screen?
