I can't recall the context of the scene right now... What do you think ever happened to the head?

Is it still there?

Brought out on special occasions?

Did it start a Pikemon fad on Centauri Prime and now all the Centauri children are running around battling each other with heads on sticks?

I'm not sure, but if it was going to be a 'warning to the next ten generations', then I imagine it got kind of ripe after awhile.

...unless they sealed it in lucite. Then...his lifeless eyes can look down for 100 generations. Of course, the Centauri would forget why he was there and proclaim the spikehead a god.

Without a single apparent tentacle?

Blasphemy.

That would be a pretty good B5 episode, wouldn't it?

The real question is did the head get taken down a buried with honors when his friends came, covertly, to power? ;)

There was a fanfiction story I once read that simply presumed that those critters knew how to safey evacuate a consciousness from its physical medium, and would have likely offered such insurance to a productive and esteemed employee, in case they got beheaded by barbarians, or met other misfortune... :P

...but who knows. Maybe working for them included the risk of retirement terms not being respected. :P

Reminds me of a story from the Culture universe where a likewise very productive representative of a covertly operating advanced civilisation met a very similar fate, except a spacecraft decided to snatch his head a moment after the event, and perform a bit of resuscitation until a replacement body could be grown. :P

I love fiction. Literally, anything can happen. :)

I suspect for health and safety reasons, it would be removed in time. Although, we all know the Centauri record for reversing long outlived rules and proclamations.

Ah yes, puzzle, I remember that Culture tale…

What do I want?


…I think I want to start the next poll. "Who are you?"
