Season 1 - Not enough of Mr Bester and friends! Season 4's Bester-Garibaldi and Season 5's Bester-Byron stories were the best. A close third is Londo's entire series journey.

Re: Season 1 hump....

At least we did get introduced to Bester in season one; "Mind War" is one of the first season episodes that I can most clearly remember watching in its original broadcast. I was all, "Ooo!" the whole time. And to find out through behind-the-scenes info that Walter Koenig was originally going to have been one of the "Knights" that tortured Sinclair in "And The Sky Full Of Stars".

Yup me too. Even if it had been a pile of crap, I loved the CGI, but, fortunately I was intrigued by the story as well, and couldn't wait until it went to Series with Midnight on the Firing Line

Re: Season 1 hump....

When Kosh's ship comes out of the jumpgate in "The Gathering", my jaw hit the floor. It was so unlike anything I had ever seen on Star Trek The Next Generation.

I preferred it when Kosh's ship flew the other way round though... same with Shadow ships

I love how the ships match each race's personality/features etc.

I saw it too. I thought it showed promise, and watched them all on first airing. I think it was about ep5 when I was hooked.

I'm going to assign myself honorary membership of this club. According to IMDB, The Gathering never aired on UK Television... so I've been watching from the beginning for UK audiences - Midnight on the Firing Line in 1994.

I won't quibble with that. You did the best you could, with what you got...
