Re: EpDis: Severed Dreams

Thing is, the superiority of the Minbari over Earthforce tech wasn't a secret. Clark - and the captains of those ships - knew they'd lose badly and quickly, and no one excepting Starfleet can afford to just throw away ships.

My thinking is that they probably had standing orders: take the station or blow it up if you can't take it. If any of the other big races show up, get out of there rather than risking an interstellar incident.

I'd imagine Morden probably had a hand in those orders. The Shadows wouldn't want that much attention at that phase.
