A - Excellent, especially for Neroon's final scene.

This one's a favorite of mine, not just because it was the final script I got to finish my collection. As we've learned is common, the quieter sounding titles JMS would use often were the most crucial episodes. I was sorry to see the end of Neroon, that's for sure.

I love the Minbari civil war storyline. Excellent stuff!

It was too bad saying goodbye to Neroon. And I, too, really liked the Minbari civil war arc(s). For such a strong, superior race to fall back to such ways (like herding people out of the city until they die of exposure) really seemed... like "how the mighty have fallen".

Am I the only one who thought Neroon's sudden awakening to having the heart of the Religious cast was a bit... comical, though? And wow, since when do the Minbari act on such random impulses, anyway? :)

Yeah, the thing with Neroon was pretty good. It was too bad to see him go, I agree, but I guess it was necessary. He was probably one of the few that realized that Delenn and the ideas she believed in were best for the Minbari people and was willing to even give his life for those ideas.

And perhaps that was the point. Or that he just had a very powerful spiritual moment. But what exactly could be achieved with his death that couldn't be by just calling off the war? :confused:

Wasn't it the case of the one who stayed in the starfire wheel and gave his/her life for the cause, that one's caste would lead? Delenn elected to stay inside, and give her life. Remember, Lennier said she was making a point? By Delenn not coming out right after Shakiri, somebody in the Religious Caste had to be sacrificed in the starfire wheel. Neroon (Warrrior Caste) believed in her and her cause, and so had to convert to Religious Caste in order save Delenn (Religious Caste) and not alter who's caste would lead. After that, Delenn hand picked the next Grey Council, 5 Worker Caste, 2 Religious Caste, and 2 Warrior Caste.

Exactly, which made Neroon's sacrifice that much more meaningful. He'd gone from wanting his caste to lead the Anla'shok to realizing that the Rangers would die for her to realizing that her leadership was worth dying for himself, even to the extent of renouncing the Warrior Caste to ensure it.

Also remember who Neroon's old boss was. Branmer. The one who went from Religious to Warrior back before the Minbari War, and whose remains are at the center of "Legacies."

Neroon completes the circle.
