  • Five Words Only

    Cribbed from somebody else:

    Describe Babylon 5 (show or station-your choice) using only 5 words.
    "Fascism always comes in quietly, holding a flag in one hand and a holy book in the other, inching its way in. The bugles and drums only sound after they've already taken over and believe it's too late to do anything about it." JMS Twitter Dec. 24, 2017

                    Sorry, but I've never really gotten this analogy. I can see certain similarities, but not enough to put it this way. I'm sure someone has written out a detailed explanation somewhere, so just point me in that direction.

                      It's always been a heavy source of inspiration, and there are lots of little direct nods and cribs; the show is pretty heavy with LOTR references as well as other fantasy / SF references.

                      The Rangers, Mordor (Mr. Morden), Za'ha'Dum (Khazad'Dum), The Shadows (black riders).

                      G'Kar in Revelations (Season 2) - "Expect me when you see me." - also spoken by Gandalf in the first LOTR book.

                      Elric in The Geometry of Shadows (also Season 2) - "Do not meddle in the affairs of wizards, for they are subtle and quick to anger."

                      I'm sure there's a lot more if you take the time.

                      Be seeing you! (the Prisoner).

                      Kinda fun little nods to fellow nerds!

                      Sheridan's fall at Z'ha'dum and subsequent rebirth - Gandalf's fall at Khazad'dum and subsequent rebirth as Gandalf the White.
                      Captain John Sheridan: I really *hate* it when you do that.

                      Kosh: Good!

                        Right, but those are nods. I find it a to be a stretch to go from nods to "Lord of The Rings: Space." Not singling sarthaz out. I've heard this reference made many times in the past. I just don't think it applies on the whole, but I am definitely willing for people to try to convince me.

                          Jonas, go ahead to a ST-forum and post the "truth".
                          I for long miss the ST-B5-flamewars.

                            Sarthaz has the point.
                            But some refinements: Delenn is Lady of the Rings - not the Lord.

                            UBIK gives us the truth with:

                            So LotR is LOTR and is a part of B5.
