  1. Aside from the obvious of it being well within Sheridan’s character to personally command the White Stars, the history buff in me wants to point out there has been exactly one time that the US Commander in Chief has personally led the US military in the field. (After the ratification of the Constitution.) George Washington led troops partway through Pennsylvania during the Whiskey Rebellion in 1794.

    So it’s not THAT farfetched.

  2. Am finishing my novel so I’ll be coming to this week’s podcast late. I just wanted to say I’m sure it’s very good. There’s a lot of television analysis on www a-v, and much of it sadly misinterprets analysis as recap, review, or repeated overviews. B5AG has been one of those willing to get into the thick of story and really attacked the text. The material in the podcast and the comments has given us all, I think, old scenes in completely new light.

  3. Although badass-mode Lyta gets most of the attention, there is one Delenn line that I think is great:

    Sheridan: If you run into any trouble-
    Delenn: I’ll walk out of it. It’s more dignified that way.

    Mira Furlan is so good at portraying this quiet confidence and inner strength.
