    How big is a Sharlin? Seems like any size it wants to be. But there's no way I'm going to argue with anything this detailed. /EDIT

    Now, that's quite a cool and interesting article...! But his conclusions seem to be correct.

    I have in mind the scene in In the Beginning where an EA cruiser rams the midsection of a Sharlin. There's also a scene where a Starfury crashes through the top of one. And in a couple of episodes we see Starfuries fighting Centauri heavy cruisers and crashing into EA ships. Although it's pretty hard to extrapolate from these, I didn't really get the impression that the Minbari cruiser was 20 or 30 times the size of the Centauri ship, as it seems to be in the new intro.

    Well I looked at the site they reference (b5tech.com), and that lists the Sharlin as being similar in length to a Centauri Primus, and almost as long as an EA Omega class, but obviously the Sharlin's *much* taller than it is long, so going by those stats it should indeed be "frickin' huge"!

    I dunno, I liked the big Sharlin on the script site's picture from the beginning. They're right I think in saying that in the show, some of the relative scales may at times have been eyeballed, and that the scale difference weren't quite as pronounced as they could be. I like the larger scale differences we seem to have now, yet it still is not too far off from what we saw in the original.

    Interesting that they devoted so much space to rebuffing the concerns about the ship sizes (giant Minbari cruisers etc) I wonder if they're reading these boards?
    Well, it sort of reinforces what Sinclair said about the Minbari cruisers in "The Gathering" - they're frickin' huge!

    That and the listing at the end of what's coming up in part three of the article, but that references the same thing that the heading does.

    I agree with Shabaz, the spoilers in this part of the article are pretty much the same as was found in part one of the article. It sounds like a pretty large spoiler, but it would require context with in the story to say for sure, plus it's something that is partially seen in the trailer.

    They really didn't give away many plot points. Just where some of the scenes were being shot and who's in it. It was really cool to see all the back work that goes into the CGI and set designs though. Crazy technology these days.

    Oh, I wasn't saying it isn't. Just that if you read part 1, but are worried about further spoilers beyond what was said there, they aren't really in this article.
