Re: Will we be able to seperate Drazi faces afte B5LR?

Oh, back on the Origianl topic, the Drazi actually have Two different appearances. What has been referred to as the "Smooth" Drazi and the "Scaley" Drazi.

I don't believe JMS ever made USE of this difference, but it is another potential source of Conflict among the Drazi.

Re: Will we be able to seperate Drazi faces afte B5LR?

Are there any female Drazi?

Well, I suppose there must be... besides, Londo mentioned in season 5 something about the wife of the Drazi ambassador... but anyway, if there are any, they are pretty well hidden.

In any case, as long as there's just one Drazi ranger (in the movie, that is), I'm sure we'll be able to tell him apart from the rest of the crew.

Re: Will we be able to seperate Drazi faces afte B5LR?

Let's see, a list of B5 aliens who all look alike within their own race(s):

Pak'ma'ra
Drazi
Llort
Vree
Gaim (ok, so it's a mask)
Narn (hey, you try picking out one particular Narn in a group! And you can't choose G'Kar or Ta'lon!)

I suppose someone from any of those races would say the same about Humans, Centauri, or the Minbari, as well.

Well, the Minbari have various shapes on their headbones atleast... and some have beards.

About Drazi females... I think there were hints that Drazi females look pretty much the same as males, and for outsiders it's hard to see the difference. Like when Garibaldi comes selling his Acme Handy-Dandy Micro Helper to the Drazi in "The Geometry of Shadows", he says something like "Sir, I'm looking for the lady of the house, assuming, you're not the lady of the house."

With all due respect, I must disagree.

Na'Toth looked very different from Ko'Dath. That assassin guy in Parliament of Dreams looked different. There was no problem recognizing G'Sten or general Na'Tok (actually, I also recognized that same actor as the Minbari...).
And I had no trouble picking out, say, that really stupid follower who kept asking those silly "deep" questions in season 5... or that fanatic in Objects in Motion.

Did I leave anyone out?

Besides, just look at the spots!! The Narn had all very different spots!!

Actually, I'd guess that the makeup would perhaps change a little, if one race becomes a "major race". The Drazi were more or less a supporting race in B5, someone to laugh at or be angry at - quite impersonal, more in the background.
Since there was no "important" Drazi character in B5, there was perhaps no need to put all that much effort into their makeup? With a Drazi more visible in the movie/possible series, that might change.

Re: Will we be able to seperate Drazi faces afte B5LR?

Well my guess is, since they are using the same actor to play the same role, it should be easier. On B5, a man by the name of Kim Strauss played Vizak, the Drazi ambassador. I could always tell it was Vizak (his name is only mentioned in one episode) because of Mr. Strauss's voice and facial expressions. So I think it should be fairly easy to tell which of the Drazi is our main character by memorizing the sound of his voice.

Well since we spent a decent amount of time with G'Kar we can spot him easily as who he is and not Narn number five. Rangers will probably do the same.

As far as telling Narns apart, I think the first Na'Toth was way hotter than the second Na'Toth.
Who is Ko'Dath?

Ko'Dath was G'Kar's attachee early in the first season. She wasn't in but a few eps (maybe only one, can't remember). Played by Mary Woronov (pardon spelling). She had a rather unfortunate incident with an airlock, and Na'Toth replaced her.
