Naming contests

</font><blockquote><font class="small">In reply to:</font><hr />
Nah, that was for naming Captain Gregg...

JMS doesn't have much luck when they do these little contests. He always ends up with a name that makes people think he is referencing some other film or series, instead of honoring a fan. When they did this for B5 the killer telepath from S5 was named after fan Jonathan Harris - but everyone assumed he was named after the actor who played Dr. Smith on Bill Mumy's old series, Lost in Space. Most folks (at least those of a certain age) who heard "Capt. Gregg" during the Rangers pilot probably thought of either the movie or the TV series The Ghost and Mrs. Muir - and wondered why the heck JMS would have named a characrter after the Rex Harrison/Edward Mulhare role.

David Martel was named way before that contest.</font color>

Small nitpicky point, but that Captain was not killed. Martel called for a healer when he went down. That was all we knew, that he was either hurt or killed. Later G'Kar was talking to the Ranger council and mentioned that Martel saved the lives of his CAPTAIN and crew. So it seems that the guy was knocked out / seriously injured, but not killed.

Just doing my small bit for accuracy. [img]/forums/images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

Ah, OK. Maybe it was wishful thinking on my part. [img]/forums/images/icons/grin.gif[/img]

For all intents and purposes of that particular incident, he was as good as killed though. [img]/forums/images/icons/tongue.gif[/img]

DUDE! Captain Gregg is still alive? I thought he died.

If so - if so -

I believe Dulann, when defending Martel before the Grey Council, said something about "saving the life of his captain and the crew."
