Oh, BTW, KoshFan and KoshN, my apologies for the bad phrasing, I should have said, "One of the Vorlon", not "One of the Kosh". My apologies for implying Generics to you

Ooh! I think you've inadvertently stumbled on a good curse! I think that in the future, instead of saying Up yours, buddy! I'll say Generics to you! :D

The polls got all wonky back when the board was transitioned from the old software the board used to be run on to the vBulletin that it's now run on. Polls that were created in threads under the old software ended up messed up a bit as a result of that transition. I think -- think being operative word -- that the polls are still the same, just that the "poll question" part of the poll is mislabeled, so voting should still be valid for each thread's respective episode.

Yes, probably a half-dozen or more times in various threads around here. If I had a big ego, I'd probably be requesting a KoshN Order (just to indicate that it's my order, and not anything "official.") FAQ sticky thread. :rolleyes: ...but then lots of other people would probably want their own "_____ Order FAQ sticky threads" so this is a Pandora's Box that you probably don't want to open. ;)

I didn't read the whole thread.

I'm wondering if the surrender of control was just a matter of switching engines off and letting docking tractor beams controlled by B5's computer take over :confused:

I can't imagine any race giving Earthforce access to their ships computer.

The only time we did see a ship try to dock on its own it crashed and I'm sure it fired its engines up then instead of just gliding in under B5's control.

Well Markas should stop being so lazy and use his mod powers for good for a change and bloody edit them to the correct episode :devil:

Too busy talking cock with Cilli more than likely :evil:

Or maybe just delete the:

View Poll Results: nonsensical words

....from the top border of every Poll bar chart? That's the part that's always getting screwed up every time they change software.

But, he and the Narns had every right to feel that way, given their history with the Centauri. So, I liked G'Kar from the start, because I sympathized with his feelings right away. He grew to be by far my favorite character.

G`Kar was and is my favorite from the show also. I said "villain" , but I should have qualified that, he was more like "villain light" in the series proper. Not truly evil, but nowhere near the enlightened G`Kar we see in the later eps. This G`Kar is angry,and his anger is ruling him. I sympathized with his anger, but he wasn`t a like-able character, not to me, anyway. After I saw his machinations in "The Gathering" ie: him bringing the assassin on board with the changeling net, the implication being that G`Kar had tried to have Kosh assassinated and the blame placed on the Minbari (which puzzles me, you would think he would have tried to place the blame on the Centauri) he does, imo, fit the definition of villain. For at least a little while, anyway.

Wow...that was a long convoluted sentence I have there. Sorry `bout that!

Very good point crazyhorse, about giving them access to their computer.I am likely just over thinking the whole thing. It is, science fiction, after all! ;)

I remember the ship crashing. That was the ep about the docking guild, was it not?
