Hey! I resemble that remark!

(Although ironically... all the vampire franchises I can think of also hinge on the love-interest vampire being an older, more experience male with a troubled past. I will grant you, however, that despite all their age and experience they still somehow come across as 22.)

My biggest problem with B5 is that it does occasionally run to preaching. But having now seen some TNG, I think it's safe to say that B5 did it with far more nuance than some.
