Re: EpDis: And The Sky Full Of Stars

This is one easily makes it into my top 5 episodes overall. It's almost the one where b5 stops being a show about a group of people trying to hold down difficult jobs in a tin can and starts to touch on the big epic stuff as well. It can really send shivers up and down my spine - the desparate image of a tiny wing of starfuries drifting past the moon before the big attack, the look of horror on Sinclair's face when the helmet floats past his cockpit, the whole idea of a battle so one-sided that only 1 in 100 (is that right?) survive, and of course Christopher Franke's requiem music.

I thought the actor who plays Knight 2 did a great job of bringing the character to life - it's hard to imagine Walter Koenig would be as good in the role (was it originally written for him?). It's a shame he never reappeared. And Knight 1 was in Star Trek 2..
