    Sounds like he reused that idea on Marcus already, though.

      He used it a couple of times.

        Well, we don't know what was chasing Takashima, so I'm not sure that really is the same as with Marcus (in the original "Matters of Honor" script Marcus comes to Babylon 5 by just walking in). And the information about her being involved in the conspiracy never did come to light during the series.

          I was thinking that for JMS the image of starting the show with a battered character arriving on the station and collapsing was more important than what specifically they were being hounded by.

            Would love some more info on the First Ones, as well a little more on the Techo-Mages.

              I think that JMS said that by awakening the sleeper personality in Talia the original was erased, Ironheart's gift and all (can't find a quote to confirm, might be just my opinion).
              To erase her personality make sense, but to also lose Ironheart's gift? that would be wrong... As I understood it, the sleeper personality is a new personality programmed to take over Talia when it was completed...

              The recording made by Kosh had nothing to do with helping or destroying Talia, it was made for Vorlon interests.
              Kosh recorded Talia because the Vorlons would realize that she had been changed by Ironheart and would be interested in knowing what were those changes (given that they created TPs and TKs) "for the future" to introduce that in other races or to keep manipulating humans.
              My comment was a story idea - sorry, but it would be nice to see Talia fight Lyta...

              The recording of Talia also served plot purposes, to be able to return the original Talia personality if Andrea Thompson had stayed in the show or the character of Lyta had not come back to replace her.
              Cool.

              As for #1, I don't think there's much base to your speculation. Talk about the "Dark Angel of Drafa" was allegorical, like calling the disease a "boogeyman". But Drafa (the disease) was real, and biological. The episode itself establishes that the disease originated naturally in the Markab homeworld (think Ebola, Black Plague, HIV, Avian flu, all rolled into one: if that were to happen it could be the Drafa equivalent for humanity).
              Yeah, but if writers can be creative, the question can still be valid.
              Think about modern conveniences being toxic to third world countriesà Think about modern vaccines being introduced to small isolated villages, because research teams and modernization is bringing their sickness with themà Then think about how the VorlonÆs visited everywhereà Star Trek OS ôThe way to Edenö comes to mind when I think of these thingsà

                Wow, I'm so happy to be able to post finally! But enough of that, What I'd really like would be a movie in the vein of In the Beginning that is all about the Dilgar War. You don't need to really get anyone for it actors wise and as long as the person playing Deathwalker resembles the actress that played her originally, that shouldn't be too hard. I'd also like to see a younger Capt. Jankowski.

And if I don't have to know it, I don't tell me, and I don't let anyone else tell me either. " And I can give you reasonable assurances that the head of Security will not report you for doing so."

                  I always wondered, why the crew of Excalibur never visited Draal. I'm pretty sure that Great Machine would have some answers for them... Or why Draal never showed to them?

                    Who's to say they didn't? We only got 13 episodes. Also the Great Machine isn't a magic box that does whatever we want it to; it's a machine that might never have picked up any useful info for this. Also, in the script for War Without End, Draal mentions that he only uderstands about 3% of what the Great Machine does; kind of like finding a new technology without a user's manual.

                      True, but if Ivanova can find first ones, then you might think someone could use it to search for left over technologies.
