Right Guys, you have the Topic (there was one a while back (from the search) but it was dated may, 2004 (so i decided to leave that be). So, Babylon 5 Discussion.

  • Favourite Series
  • Favourite Episode
  • Favourite Ship
  • Favourite Species / Alliance
  • Favourite Movie

There just topics of talk, you don't have to list them. I can't say i watched all of Babylon 5, i was pretty young when it was on (around the same time as ST: TNG) yet i do remember Babylon 5 and know enough about it to be involved in a discussion about it (i may even learn lots more than i knew). I watched what i could (most of it was on past midnight though, and considering how young i was at the time) didn't get to watch it, unless my dad recorded it, then i would watch it with him during the next day (at least, i think that's what happened). Also, I (or we) own a copy of 'In The Beginning' Movie (of when the Membari & Humans went to war because of that stupid captian who decided to open fire (even thought that Centari guy (for got his name)) told them not to bother the Membari. - Then they asked the Narn for information and weapons - only to find out that Earth Money was rubbish lol!! Anyway... :feedback:

Favorite series was the original, probably Season 5.

Favorite episode was either No Surrender No Retreat or Endgame.

Favorite ship is the Whitestar.

Favorite species is the Minbari.

Favorite movie is In The Beginning. I have all of the B5 movies. In The Beginning was just an awesome movie with special effects and CGI that are top notch even by today's standards. And it showed humans getting pwnz3rd hardcore, which is always fun. :lol:

Favorite Season/Show: Seasons 3&4 Favorite Episode: The one with fire in the title where that ends the shadow wars Favorite Ship: Warlock Favorite Species: Shadows Favorite Movie: Third Space

I really enjoyed the show because it had a great realistic story filled the gritty realisms of a plausible future. Unlike Startrek, it wasn't clean and pristine, unlike Star Wars it had great dialog (I love the films, but the dialog overall for the 6 films isn't that amazing, not to say that I could have done alot better job) It was the best sci-fi show up till Battlestar Galactica remake

Babylon 5 also has several of my favorite quotes and sayings.

May your god watch over you and stand between you and harm in all the dark places you must walk
There are things in the Universe billions of years older than either of our races. They are vast, timeless, and if they are aware of us at all, it is as little more than ants and we have as much chance of communicating with them as an ant has with us. We know. We've tried and we've learned that we can either stay out from underfoot or be stepped on. They are a mystery and I am both terrified and reassured to know that there are still wonders in the Universe, that we have not explained everything. Whatever they are, Miss Sakai, they walk near Sigma 957 and they must walk there alone."
No dictator, no invader, can hold an imprisoned population by the force of arms forever. There is no greater power in the universe than the need for freedom. Against that power governments, and tyrants, and armies can not stand. The Centauri learned this lesson once. We will teach it to them again. Though it take a thousand years, we will be free."
I apologize. I'm .. sorry. I'm sorry we had to defend ourselves against an unwarranted attack. I'm sorry that your crew was stupid enough to fire on a station filled with a quarter million civilians, including your own people. And I'm sorry I waited as long as I did before I blew them all straight to hell. .. As with everything else, it's the thought that counts."
This is Ambassador Delenn of the Minbari. Babylon 5 is under our protection. Withdraw, .. or be destroyed." "Negative. We have authority here. Do not force us to engage your ship." "Why not? Only one human captain has ever survived battle with the Minbari fleet. He is behind me. You are in front of me. If you value your lives, be somewhere else."
What guarantees will you give me that the crews will not open fire on a Centauri vessel as it approaches Babylon 5 ?" "It's the same guarantee I gave when I said that none of the other Narns would break into your quarters in the middle of the night and slit your throat." "Mr. Garibaldi, you have never given me that promise." "You're right. Sleep tight."
This is the White Star Fleet. Negative on surrender...we will not stand down." "Who is this? Identify yourself." "Who am I? I am Susan Ivanova, Commander, daughter of Andrei and Sophie Ivanov. I am the right hand of vengeance, and the boot that is going to kick your sorry ass all the way back to Earth ... I am Death incarnate, and the last living thing that you are ever going to see. God sent me."

"Trust Ivanova, trust yourself, anyone else, shoot em."

Ivanova owns. Period.

You have to love a fiesty Russian woman.

LOL yes Ivanova was great. I was disappointed that she couldnt do the 5th season.

"You mean this will cause me to gain weight?" "yes but its only temporary" "Great...All my life Ive fought Imperialism, now I am the expanding Russian frontier" "Yes but with very nice borders"

I'm somewhat glad this got a little feedback yeltongue.gif (although, those bullet points, i did state poeple don't have to do them) :rolleyes: Anyhow, in the movie 'the Beginning' Sheridan and that Woman (forgot her name) are being help captive by that Centari guy... (they mention that their son is safe) - what happens to them? or does nobody know..

You said we didnt have to do them, you didnt say we could not do them ;)

IIRC Sheriidan and Delinns son's name was David. David was infected with one of the Drakh beasties that burrow into your shoulder and take over your nervous system.

In the episode "Sleeping In Light" the incident with David comes up and IIRC Sheridan says he is fine and is serving on a ship in the An'La'Shok. I assume that to mean they were able to remove the beastie and cure David.

And considering the fact that we later see Sheridan 'Die', and Delinn is said to live for many years after the fact, Lando must have had them executed, as In the Beginning was suggesting.

And that Centauri chick (LOL The adult one) had a killer body..Too bad she didn't have hair..Except the pony tail thing.
