      Keep in mind that in the former Soviet Union, ethnic peoples were scattered all over the place. A lot of ethnic Russians ended up in the southern provinces now in turmoil.

      I have many Russian friends at my church. The most active family is ethnic Russian, but born in Ukraine. It's funny how historically Ukraine was the cultural birth place of Russia, but now due to western influences (Poland, for one) many people of Ukrainian descent are very nationalistic. Ukrainians resent a connection to Russia. Their language is different too, slightly. On the other hand, the spiritual center of Russian Orthodoxy is the Kievo Pecherskaya Lavra in Kiev.

      I fall into the melting pot slot. I don't like it. My mother's family tried to keep their English traditions but my father's Irish/English/Scottish family retained absolutely NO TRACE of their heritage. English folk songs flow in my blood for sure, but discovering the brutality of Brittish Imperialism and the mess the world is in now because of it, I'm not so sure I want to cling to that heritage. I am a Russophile because I love the culture and identify with it more. I feel very much at home among Russians.

      What any of the above has to do with B5 escapes me!

          Thanks. I think the reason 414 is so hard to find is that it was the episode that Scott Adams of Dilbert fame guest starred in. Heck, if somebody wants to keep an autographed title page, that's fine with me...I just want the danged script!

            Scripts

            I have the Sleeping in Light Script that Joe sold at ComicCon a couple of years ago.

            The one script I have that was used by an actor is Walter Koenig's script for Epiphanies, which has his notes and such in it including a "Naughty Girl" scribbled by one of Lyta's lines.

              I'll have to watch the ep sometime, and see what he was refering to!!!

                I used to have the SiL script but let it go to a fellow fan in the UK who'd never seen a script before. I've never had an actor's script. I'd love to read their notes. Mine are mostly from the Art Dept. and I learned a lot about the level of detail that went into the show from them.

                  I am a Russophile because I think that, fundamentally, the nationalities closest to American ways of thinking are the Russians and the French.

                  We fight, of course, because one always fights with family. But, in the end, the aspirations and dreams of the three peoples are remarkably similar in their content and delusions.

                  Of course, I will mention Parliament of Dreams here to keep this a B5 post! Love that episode for what it says about the best human ability: to tolerate diversity. The final scene was one of the best things the show ever aired.
                  I believe that when we leave a place, part of it goes with us and part of us remains. Go anywhere in the station, when it is quiet, and just listen. After a while, you will hear the echoes of all our conversations, every thought and word we've exchanged. Long after we are gone .. our voices will linger in these walls for as long as this place remains. But I will admit .. that the part of me that is going .. will very much miss the part of you that is staying.
