Bester is back yet again, chasing yet another problem telepath to Babylon 5. This time his backup is two brand-new interns, about to get a fast education on pursuit procedures and just what it’s like having to work with mundanes who don’t trust you. Tell us what you thought of this episode here, without spoiling future episodes or any tie-in media.
It’s Psi Cop Bester’s turn for a day-in-the-life episode as we continue toward the end of the series. Here’s the place to talk about any events going forward from this point as well as events in the novels/comics/other tie-in media.
What happens when a sci-fi show that has made it to the last of its planned seasons lands one of the hottest writers in comics to pen an episode?
You get a Babylon 5 episode that goes to some interesting places.
Here you can talk about Neil Gaiman’s “Day of the Dead” and the things that came before it.
Here we can freely talk about the fallout from Lochley actually selling a part of the Babylon 5 station to the Brakiri when the Drazi had put in an offer first. And also Rebo and Zooty’s stellar careers as politicians, ushering in an era of peace that lasted centuries.
Or, you know, true spoilers from “Day of the Dead”.
Here’s the big thing we commented on as we recorded the podcast: this is the first time in ages, it feels like, that we’ve had the whole core cast involved in the story. What’d you think? No spoilers!
Now that we’re done with the Byron arc, what do you think about the stuff set up in “The Ragged Edge”?
We shall not see the likes of that hair again.
So we can’t spoil anything about Byron’s future, because, well. But what does this coda to the telepath crisis imply for the rest of the season, and is it paid off?
Na’Toth’s back! Yay!
Bester’s back. Um, yay?
What did you think of the predicament Byron’s telepaths have gotten themselves into? And the sticky galacto-political situation? Let’s talk about this episode, but not the next one, here.
Boy, those Interstellar Alliance ambassadors sure can get testy! Where are their grievances, and the telepath crisis, and poor Na’Toth going, anyway?
