Also have to add Sarah Douglas as J'hadur - Deathwalker. Jane Carr as Timov in Soul Mates was also quite good.

I love Jane Carr as Timov! She does an excellent job IMO. :thumbsup:

Timov was great, no doubt, but the other two were equally great. That episode was pretty corny and could have easily been as cringe-inducingly corny as Ivanova's sex dance or the Zarg, but those actresses turned it into one of the show's rarely successful comedic stories.

Trivia note for folks not getting the script books. "Soul Mates" almost didn't get made when Peter David didn't come up with an outline that JMS could approve in two tries. Peter solved the problem but the story was actually spiked (killed). Against all advice, Peter wrote the script on spec and sent it to JMS under the pretense of it being a script for the comics and JMS bought it.

So I'm listening to the episode soundtrack for Walkabout right now, and my nomination is for Erika Gimpel as Caitlyn (the spelling changes from place to place) in Walkabout. Babylon 5 is very musical, and has so many references to music and its importance. Her acting was very good, her character was soothing. Her singing? Wow. Not generally my style of music, but wow. Hell of a singer.

GKarsEye, you have had me laughing out loud with two of your recent posts and I thank you. The world needs laughter.

Of course, if you go by the markets, the world also needs landmines. Just an observation. :p

Be prepared to hold a minority opinion on that one. I remember her coming up in discussion before and people are not fans, and opinion I share.
Although, given my personal romantic and musical inclinations, one would think the idea of a sexy, wise but vulnerable R&B singer lifting the spirits of a tortured soul would play right into my fantasies and I would love the story. But the whole thing just felt clumsy and poorly executed to me, and a bit too corny.

Depending on the criteria for guest appearances, I would have to say that my favorites were either Neroon or Ta'Lon. If you're going for one shot appearances I'd have to go with Timov, General Franklin, or Elric.
