Re: EpDis: Dust To Dust

I always took it to mean that both the Narn and the Centauri were screwed, but the either/or thing might be a better assessment. And JMS has said that neither race ever reaches the level the Humans and Minbari have achieved in "The Deconstruction of Falling Stars." As G'Kar says not long after, he's going to do what his revelation taught him to do to save everyone, but the Humans are the key.

Good point, KoshFan! Even thought the Centauri were supposedly the "Lion of the Galaxy" as Londo called them, in the long run they didn't reach the same level the Humans and the Minbari did.

This is certainly my understanding. G'Kar basically said that he saw the Narn as dying off eventually but at least they could become an example and catalyst for better future for life in general.

The Narn/Centauri conflict serves as a dramatic counterpoint to the Human/Minbari conflict, in that they are both warring planets that, following the natural inclination of people, could continue a never-ending cycle of violence and hatred. The former is the realisation of that horror why the latter is saved by enlightened people, with Babylon 5 as the instrument.

Re: EpDis: Dust To Dust

This was the first B5 episode I ever saw, and it so blew me away that I was converted at first sight. And the scene that clinched it for me? The one where G'Kar has his Dust enhanced vision and is informed by Kosh that some must be sacrificed so that all may be saved. It still sends a shiver up my spine.

I just love Kosh...

This is actually the second-to-last thing he did for our heroes before he died. He wasn't terribly active the last few weeks of his life, with the notable exception of sending out the fleet.

Wow. That surprises me, somehow. I was a late to start watching B5 on a regular basis, but somehow figured you'd have to know something of the G'kar character to really get that scene.

Obviously the background given in that episode was enough to reel you in.

I shouldn't be surprised. If there is one thing JMS did for actors it is to show a lot of people that "this guy/gal has a much bigger range than any of you realized".

Walter Koenig: I think even JMS mentioned he knew how much more than "Chekov" he could be.

Andreas Katsulas: although I think now "The Fugitive" is his most mentioned role, hhis best role was that of G'kar.

Brad Dourif (sp?): I'd seen him many times in the movie Dune, and I was stunned to see just how much he could draw me into his acting when he was playing a sympathetic part.

I'm sure there are many others, these are the three that stand out in my mind.
