  1. Something that struck me watching this time around, why is it so hard for the Alliance to find out who is behind the attacks?

    In the 1990s I accepted it, but today we have cars with dashcams, airliners with black boxes and satellite transponders, Falcon rockets with enough bandwidth to stream live video from onboard cameras. I started wondering why doesn’t anyone build similar recording devices into spaceships in B5?

    Head canon explanation anyone?

    1. Um… Very good point. How about counter espionage? And anti surveillance cultures, recording off as an exercise of liberty. Major defeats of bad people inducing cool state. Space is a big place. Those are all viable motives but I think we need a lot more to explain this.
