Man, people do seem to have strong emotions about this one, don't they?

B. A good plot-pusher ep. And personally I find the sex scene pretty amusing. "Next time, my way."

Take away the sex scene with Ivanova and I would have given it an A but with it in I give it a B.

It's silly, but I like the whole Lumati subplot. Excellent episode, one of my favourite G'Kar episodes.

With the Lumati being quite into the ideals of evolution and natural selection, I wonder if way back in their history if they had had some exposure to Shadows that built their social philosophy.

I found Ivanova's song/dance/sex routine really silly, and not particularly funny, and it did not suit B5 at all. The rest of the epsiode is ok, but a bit dull. The teaser was good, but it was downhill from thast point. And Mary Kay Admas shows in this episode why we really missed Caitlin Brown- there is absolutely no strength to her performance, and thankfully we never see her again after this episode.

Even if they didn't, it's a fantastic bit of classic B5 foreshadowing.

I didn't really think the Lumati thread was throw-away .. the sex scene was too silly for me after having seen it once, overall though, was the kind of plot that was so perfectly alien but still made so much sense - one thing I love about many plots in B5. And I loved the bits in the mess hall around the plot .. especially Franklin's bits there.

A great episode, though not one that has me sitting at the edge of my seat like some others .. still a solid A I suppose :D

We never saw or heard of the Lumati ever again. That's what I call a throwaway.

I think there was one scene several episodes later in which Delenn is dictating a letter or message or something to her computer and mentions agreeing to open trade relations with the Lumati, I think. But otherwise, yeah it was throwaway, which was kinda annoying. I'm not too terribly fond of one-off alien races in space shows.

The punchline to that scene, with Delenn dictating the letter, is that she says she can't conclude negotiations on the treaty at that time. I'll give you three guess why.
