Re: Deconstruction of Falling Stars and the future of the human race (spoilers)

It's stated in JMS's comments for that episode:

# Did the future humans leave the galaxy as the Vorlons did?
No point in leaving the galaxy; stars go nova, it only affects the immediate vicinity (big as that is). By this point, they were in the position of the Vorlons, and now have to take their (our) place guiding the younger races, the next wave, while not getting in the way and remembering the lesson of the shadow/vorlon conflict.

# What about the other races?
The Minbari eventually make it; the Narn and Centauri do not. They don't die out, they just don't hit a state of First One-ishness, which is darn close to immortality (barring violence).
And while the Minbari did have a head-start, they're also fairly slow-moving in their ways. Plus, they'd be very closely associated with us by then. I imagine we made the step together.
Know what you do.
