Re: Deconstruction of Falling Stars and the future of the human race (spoilers)

Nope, sorry. Shadows WERE enegry beings.
They just spent a lot of time in material bodies. Particularly when dealing with the Younger races.
For that matter, all the First Ones we saw did that.

Oh, Lorien was the Oldest of the First Ones.

So much older that he considered all the first Ones still hanging around to be Children.

Oh, on the Minbari/Human hybrid thing, JMS comments make it very clear that no such thing happened.

<BLOCKQUOTE><font size="1" face="Verdana, arial">quote:</font><HR> Did the future humans leave the galaxy as the Vorlons did?

No point in leaving the galaxy; stars go nova, it only affects the immediate vicinity (big as that is).
By this point, they were in the position of the Vorlons, and now have to take their (our) place guiding the younger races, the next wave, while not getting in the way and remembering the lesson of the shadow/vorlon conflict.

What about the other races?

The Minbari eventually make it; the Narn and Centauri do not.
They don't die out, they just don't hit a state of First One-ishness, which is darn close to immortality (barring violence).

Do not ascribe your own motivations to others:

At worst, it will get you dead."
