Doesn't the whole thing take place at night on the planet?

Maybe he's not referring to the telling of the story or the complexity of the story. Maaaybe he's referring to their how long ago they were stranded on the planet and their struggle to survive there. They've been there for generations.

My one gripe is the Shadow Fighters having beam weapons in the flashback from probably 100 years ago. Either somebody at Netter Digital wasn't paying attention, or JMS threw us another curve.

Wouldn't this be right around the same time that the Centaurii started to occupy Narn? It could be a Narn ship, but the Narn may have just been the owners of the ship and might have been contracted by the slave owners to supply transport.
