He doesn't have to be written the same way. On the face of it, an embittered, rogue Psi Cop trying to save his people sounds like an interesting character.

A name I haven't thought of for some time. He was last seen around this place about 14 years ago.

That long? But then, I've been gone some of that time myself.

But that's about a third of my life -- and yet I remember Joe. Strange, how time passes... and yet doesn't pass altogether.

Re: B5 Reboot?? Is it true??!!?!

Agreed that on paper Byron was a great idea that could have set things up nicely, but in practice didn't quite work as well as he could have. I don't think we were meant to fall in love with Byron, but I think we were meant to sympathize with him more than most people do. I think the plot is brilliant with regards to how it worked with Lyta. Lyta's arc is one of my favorite of the series. I REALLY didn't like how she handled things at the end, but that is also what makes her arc so great and also so tragic. She shouldn't have felt the way she felt because she should have been treated better than she was treated. It is also tragic because it was basically left open ended and we knew there was supposed to be more to come. (Is that the twentieth time I have explained that opinion.)

And as far as old names stopping by for a visit, what is going on?! I thought I successfully scared everyone away!!!!!!

Looney, I have been posting with Crazybillyo in the Babbleon forum for the last 20 years. After doing that no one here can scare me away.

Remember that the rumour was that there were two projects in the works the reboot is obviously one, but there was also the animated project - if that goes ahead then that could be the perfect opportunity to tie up Lyta's story!

Keep in mind that the animation project hasn't been confirmed. It's based on what a fan was told after some former crew people had a discussion with JMS. Possible 'game or telephone' or possibly perfectly accurate. Time will tell.
