Re: Does any tv series / book saga / movie saga achieve B5's plot structure?

I liked Byron as a character. The only problem I have with the teep arc is the behavior of B5 personnel. In general, their behavior was as bad as the behavior of those who helped the Nazis round up Jews in WWII, even when they didn't agree with the Nazis. But, I think that was JMS' point.
