Re: EpDis: A View From The Gallery

It's been a while since I watched it, so some pricise details are a little hazy.

They had some warning, as I recall ...... but clearly not enough to get the White Stars back ahead of them (much less cut them off en route). So, by the time they got much of any information just about unknown or possibly hostile ships headed in this general direction, the alien battle fleet was already closer then the White Stars patrolling in known space (or at least most of them).

As for coming from formerly Shadow space, Shadow space had been out on the Rim. Again, they would have to come through some of the already known races' territorries to get to Babylon 5.

The other thing about the being a one-shot, is that it just felt incongruous with everything that JMS had done in the rest of the 5 years. Babylon 5 had just never been a show where a large fleet of ships showed up to be the main antagonist in one episode without ever being hinted at before or after. Hanging threads had always lead somewhere in this show.
