Re: EpDis: Ship Of Tears

The only problem I have with this episode is this: what are the odds that Bester's lover just happens to be on the ship?

I would say the probability was high. Mars has only got 8 times the population of Babylon 5 so there will only be a small number of teeps there. Consequently it is likely that there is only one teep prison on Mars. Bester's Psi Cop duties would cause him to visit it frequently.

The main organisation of the transportation of the teeps may occur on Earth but the movement of the prisoners from the prison to the spaceship would have to be delegated to people in the Psi building and spaceport on Mars. Bester's "contacts" then told him about this unusual operation.
