Re: EpDis: Messages From Earth

Let's not forget that Sheridan's wife was also an archaeologist... okay she turned bad, but that was down to the Shadows! Eilerson in Crusade is more complex. He's greedy and out for himself, and gives the impression that archaeologists just work to make a discovery and get rich, but I have a feeling his character would have changed over time.

Indiana Jones was an archaeologist...

Anyway, I love this episode. The music is some of the best in the series and really helps make the episode. In an interview in SFX (issue 5, I think, I still have it somewhere), Ron Thornton says JMS gave Foundation Imaging the choice of having the battle in space or in Jupiter's atmosphere, and of course Thornton chose Jupiter so they could do something that hadn't been done before. I wonder how Sheridan would have defeated the Shadow ship if it had been in space?
