Re: EpDis: A Distant Star

I always thought he could have become a Ranger, what with his obsession over the Shadows. A shame it didn't work out, but I think there were some clashes there behind the scenes.

Yeah that is an excellent point. Perfect Ranger material. That is such a great idea. They could have had him disappear and then reappear a couple of seasons later as a Ranger. Such a great idea. Like I said, I have no problem with his arc, but that is a great Alternate Universe arc for him.

He was perfectly fine in this episode, particularly in two key scenes the scene where he's gently pushing Sheridan as to whether commanding the station is the right role for him, and the scene where he tells Sheridan about the Shadow ship that he once saw, and he really sells the creepiness of it.
I just watched this episode a few days ago and I agree, Russ did a great job with it! Seemed very natural banter with Bruce/Sheridan.

Re: EpDis: A Distant Star

This is one of my favourite episodes - I love Russ T playing Jack, love the easy chemistry between him and Sheridan. I first saw it over 20 years ago, and that minor character has stayed with me all this time.
(And no way would he have been in the Clark camp - just sayin' :-))

Re: EpDis: A Distant Star

WELCOME ELFIN!!!!!

I believe we have discussed this before, but I will bring it up again. Did the CORTEZ play any part in the CIVIL WAR? I mean I know, I just want to know if everyone else knows.....

But yes Elfin, I share your opinion of Captain Maynard.

Re: EpDis: A Distant Star

Didn't see the Cortez in any of the civil War fights, but don't recall if it was mentioned. Not likely that an explorer class ship would seek out combat, maybe come in for clean-up or rebuilding.

The good Captain Jack in the show.

HA! Made me think of a comparison. Two columns with photos at the top of each.

Good Captain Jack Vs Bad Captain Jack.
