    I have been known to have them from time to time. :lol:

    It's the irony of Garibaldi being a proponent of that approach, then later becoming a sort of victim of it. That makes our choice of episodes even better than I had first thought!

    Another cool little nugget I just now learned from Lurker's ...

    I'd forgotten that! He did a good job on all of them.

    Now this scene gave me the shivers the first time I saw it!

    That's interesting! I hadn't realized he directed any eps!

    I'll say! ALl three of them very thought provoking and special. Even his two episodes from "Crusade" - "Each Night I think of Home" and "Appearances and Other Deceipts" were of similar flavor.

    Eww...Kinda creepy when that little girl intern volunteers to throw the mundane out the airlock. :(

    It's the juxtaposition of the seemingly benign and sweet intern, so casually tossing a person out the airlock. Even someone as loathsome as this petty thief.

    'Each Night' was that the one Rick Biggs guest starred in?

    This is what makes it especially creepy. That was very well done. Sorta Nazi-ish, in a way. "These are lesser life forms, so it doesn't really matter". Like stepping on a bug.

    Yeah, she reminded me of Lyndisty, Vir's wife-to-be. Just totally brainwashed and cold as ice about killing other beings.

    Yes... and was, perhaps not so coincidentally, one of the most sensitive of the entire series.

    PK, have you seen any of "Crusade" ?

    Ooooohhh... hadn't thought of that at all! Excellent parallel there!

    That would be a fun episode to watch sometime. Imagine us and our comments during Vir's question to Ivanova....

    I'd not thought of it myself. That was a good catch, Jan.

    I am really glad "Maternis, Paternis" was one of the episodes we watched tonight. It has more material in it than I had recalled. Most of the series is like that.

    I told you I'd tell you about an homage that I just found out about. I just picked up some props on Ebay from Crusade and one of them was an equipment case tag. On it was inscribed (among other things) 'JPL' for Jet Propulsion Labs who consulted with the show and 'THX 1138' for George Lucas' first film.
