Re: EpDis: Deathwalker

That's a good point about the Vorlons being wary of telepaths. Assuming that it's not a plot point that went away after the story changed direction with Michael O'Hare's departure, I can think of two in-universe reasons. One might be that a telepath might be able to scan a Vorlon and learn something about their nature that they want to keep secret. Scanning Kosh certainly had an effect on Lyta. Second, if we are to take it as just meaning they were wary of human telepaths, the Vorlons would have known that Psi Corps was working with the Shadows, and been wary of them for that reason.

I think the Shadows used telepaths because one telepath pilot could block the telepathic signal of another telepath trying to disable the ship.
