Excellent. No doubt about it. The only thing that tarnishes it is Sheridan's stupid move of firing the main guns into the null space while the ship was still moving. Don't look now folks, but we've got no brakes.

I voted A, but I had a rough time deciding if it should be A or B. ACtA is a very good movie, but it just seems to be lacking a little something. I can't quite figure out what that something is though.

He had little choice, you do not stop in space.

It was tactical oversight. His main concern at the time of firing the weapon was not allowing the drakh ships fleeing that way, to escape. It didn't occur to him until it was too late, that he might need a very quick escape plan because he had been remiss about what might be about the other side.

Everyone makes mistakes, Sheridan is not a god.

I can only really look at this movie as a prelude to Crusade. Since that series never really got going, I haven't felt a desire to re-watch it since I bought the DVDs.

Anderson did (stop in space), by firing the retros.

And even if you can't literally stop (which I'll have to read up on) you can still come to a relative stop compared to another object in space ... in this case the null region.

I think the poster was referring to the fact that by firing the main guns, it forced the Excalibur to drift along it's forward course for a minute before they'd be able to fire the retros
