Re: RIP Michael Ansara (Elric)

Good on you for mentioning B5. Sadly, seems to me that only Star Trek is sufficiently known among non-sci-fi fans to be mentioned in obits. Most obits for Michael O'Hare seemed to omit B5 even though...

RIP Michael Ansara (Elric)

Michael Ansara, perhaps best known for his Star Trek role as Kang and to Babylon 5 fans as the technomage Elric, has died at the age of 91.

Re: Babylon 5 Characters

My two absolute favorites are Ivanova and Franklin. Garibaldi is also pretty good. G'kar is my favorite among the aliens, mainly because he changes so much, there's real character development there.

Re: Upconverting Babylon 5 DVD's to 1080i/1080p?

Sorry, my bad, I wasn't specific enough in my former post. I know they're ships from the show, but they don't look like ships to me. Not the way the ships of the younger races, even the Minbari, do.
