I will say that I think B5 does really well with the concept of religion in general, you know?
Oh I wholeheartedly agree. Much better IMHO than Trek did for the most part. Very even-handed and effective.

And to think I almost gave up on the series after watching "Believers" in S1

I don't think JMS is much of an actor. He does religion and madmen particularly well....hmmm...<g>

Agreed. *nods*

With the exception of DS9, Trek almost seemed 'afraid' of religion. B5 confronts it several times. And it is always below the surface with the Minbari.

BTW.... did you catch one of the most important, seemingly throw-away lines? Lennier relating that Valen was thought to be "Minbari not born of Minbari"

I've always wondered if Theo knew who 'Edward' really was?

By the way, just so you guys know...the black and white habits are very close to what the Dominican Order in the Catholic Church wear today.

Intriguing question. We never see that he knows he was Charlie Dexter. I think he may know he was once someone else. But this scene with Sheridan indicates he didn't really know anything about Br. Edward's real past

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

One difference though - the religious orders in the Catholic Church do extensive background checks and also spend alot of time in meetings with the person, examining their ENTIRE pasts.

They seem to be brown as opposed to black.

Br. THeo said that since his order has little resources they can't afford to do much of a background check

Well if that is the case, then they are close to the Carmelites.

Even better!
