Not only that but did you recognize who else guest-starred in that episode? Or did you ever watch "In the Heat of the Night"?

Yeah, I recognized Anne-Marie Johnson, but I saw her in What's Happening Now before I saw her in In the Heat of the Night.

Shall we then agree that Dr. Franklin had most excellent taste?

We'll revisit the subject of Dr. Franklin's love life after you've seen the rest of the series.

In a way he is but he is much better written than Geordi.

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

Well, I just watched the first episode written by Peter David. That final line from Delenn was just creepy.

And, as if it weren't icky enough, it made me wonder where else she may have grown hair.

And then that led to wonderin' what it would have looked like before she went into the cocoon. Was there a funky blue arrow there, too? Is there still a ridge 'round it?

The previous post was brought to you by station WTMI - the Waaaaaay Too Much Information station.

Actually, that scene as humorous as it was underscores the extent to which Delenn has been transformed. It isn't just her outward appearance that has been altered.

I don't know about that. Most of the time, like Geordi, he sits there as Mr. Exposition, or Mr. Quickly Advance the plot, but he rarely gets developed as a character. His subplot in season three mostly worked, and I liked what he had to do in season four, but other that I think he was the character JMS had the weakest grasp on.

And yet, like Levar Burton, Richard Biggs manages to create a character that's extremely memorable despite being thinly developed through shear force of personality. I think, in that respect, they're very similar, though I think Franklin had slightly better development than Geordi in the end.

Trouble is that Geordi was memorable half for having half of his lines consisting of vintage Treknobabble. The other half came from being "the character with the VISOR"

You will always have some degree of variance on how much impact is in an individual episode before it gets to "WHAM" status.

Should we tell him about the Narn Bat Squad yet?
Nah...let's at LEAST wait until he is familiar with Lord Refa.
