Technomages and shadow tech


I wasn't sure if this was a B5 topic, or a Crusade topic. It might have a spoiler in it, too, I guess.

I missed something somewhere. I pick up from posts that shadow technology is the fundamental basis for a technomage's powers. Did I miss a really really interesting moment of a B5 or Crusade episode? Or is this info. gleamed from the books? Or "inside info"?

I think what you are referring to comes from one of the unproduced crusade scripts. Could be wrong, though, haven't had time to read them yet.

Sheridan: Are you trying to cheer me up?
Ivanova: No sir, wouldn't dream of it.
Sheridan: Good, I hate being cheered up. It's depressing.
Ivanova: So in that case we're all going to die horrible, painful, lingering deaths.
Sheridan: Thank you, I feel so much better now.

-"Matters of Honor"

Yep, it's in the two unproduced scripts.

Also, the tech is explained in quite a lot of detail in "Casting Shadows," the first book of the technomage trilogy. If you haven't read it, I highly urge you to. Although we don't see its origins in the first novel, we do get a good look at how it works.

"Expect me, when you see me."
Yes, script in question was "End of the Line"...read it at the now-defunct bookface.com. It and "Ends of the Earth", as well as an unproduced Fiona Avery script featuring *my hero*, were posted there.

There were also some hints to this effect in "Casting Shadows", although I think this will be further explored in "Summoning Light", due in July. Can't wait!!!


How the heck did the Delenn pic get there?
