Re: EpDis: A View From The Gallery

But that's likely what it would be like with a view from the gallery, so to speak. They aren't exactly at the information center of the station.
IIRC, Lochley (at the center of information) is overheard being briefed about or talking about the aliens, and she doesn't know, either. Nobody really knows much of anything about them, except that they've been attacking other races and B5 is likely the next target on their path.

And not every episode need be arc-related.
It's really nothing to do with being arc-related. It's just lack of background information making the episode seem thin.

I'll have to rewatch the episode, but from what I remember of it, I found the bit about the aliens very unsatisfying.
