    No, against Talia. If the recording were intended to restore her personality, I don't think terror and the rest would have been the emotions to do it. That's why I figured it would be a weapon.

    The part of Abbut was written for Gilbert Gottfried but he wasn't available.

    A weapon against the shadows? I wish we could have seen a resolution for that arc. I liked Abbutt too, he was funny.

    Could he have been used to restore Talia's personality? Huh, I just now learned he wasn't played by Harlan Ellison. For some reason I had it in my head that it was him.

    You know who I'd like to know more about? Abbut. I just liked him. I don't think he was ever meant to come back, and calling him a Vicr. If B5 were made today, would he be called a Bluer? At least they didn't call him a Betamax.

    Here's the link to the B5 books site:
    http://www.cafepress.com/b5books

    The thread about it is down in the Scripts forum but a lot of us are only just getting them now.

    What's the skinny? Is there a thread here about this?

    come to think of it a watch phone would be better cause it's on your wrist and not on your clothes.
    I realise I'm probably in the minority here, but my favourite Trek has always been Star Trek - The Motion Picture. I particularly enjoy the design styles and costumes of the film, including... wrist-worn communicators!

    Here's a picture I found on Google...

    It's unfortunate that the ad is misleading, though. The deal costs $300 and isn't independent; it is a glorified and upgraded bluetooth worn on your wrist.
    Yeah, it's the new Samsung Galaxy Gear Watch. While a step in the right direction, I'm not comfortable either. Though with a little more R&D, a watch size phone would be a feasible alternative. Maybe the watch companies will kick in with some of the mobile phone makers to get something going.

    Been heavily into B5 - Crusade again recently. Damn them for aborting this little baby. "Damn them all to Hell!" - George Taylor.

    Its been years and I'm still p!$$ed-off about it. Can't imagine what JMS went through....

    And I was looking forward to seeing Excalibur cropping up in episodes of Legends of the Rangers..., and then that didn't happen either!

    Anyway! Does anyone know, (perhaps from the script books?), what Captain Gideon's Explorer-Class ship was called please? It was seen in War Zone....


    Cheers!

    He just sits there.
