    in other words, Michael O'Hare didnt say he was "done" it was an understanding that the story needed a different direction than what was planned. Thanks guys for your help. the statement they make on saveandromeda.com makes it seem like O'Hare Quit, like most actors do, and then was just replaced. my biggest problem is why do you want to "Save" Andromeda? I agree with JMS when he says 5 seasons is perfect for a show in syndication.

    Didn't JMS Plan on reassigning Sinclair and have Sheridan come in at the beginning of season 2? I mean didn't he have that portion of the story planned?
    The original plan wasn't to replace Sinclair but as the reality of the story evolved, JMS realized that it simply wouldn't be realistic for Sinclair to have both the major connection to the Minbari *and* a major connection to the shadows. If he (JMS) were to just bring in somebody to fulfil the shadow connection role, Sinclair would be relegated to the background as that thread was revealed. At the same time, O'Hare had some misgivings and so he and JMS mutually decided that there would be a new commander but that the Sinclair character could return to tie up his arc with the Minbari.

    A lot of people like to speculate other scenarios but this is what JMS has said.

    That depends on what you mean by 'deliberate'.

    Yes, it was a change made by both Michael and JMS for the character to be written out, but it was a change made to the show because of issues discovered in its production, not a development planned for from the start.

    Does that help any?

    It always seemed pretty clear that JMS intended for Sinclair to become Valen. The big question, which to my knowledge JMS has never answered, is when would that have happened. If it happened at the end, there would have been no need to replace SInclair per se. As far as planning for it to happen at the beggining of Season 2, I think it's pretty clear that JMS did NOT originally plan that. The archive contains many posts from JMS describing the replacement of Sinclair by Sheridan, but essentially he describes it as more of an unanticipated, mutual decision.

    ok . . .

    thanks for the input Ranger one, but that still doesnt answer my question.

    I want to tell the people at saveandromeda.com (pending if it is true), that the replacement of Michael O'Hare was deliberate.

    Taken from http://saveandromeda.com/campaign.htm

    "The Save Andromeda Campaign has been organized to show support for the series and to encourage the SciFi Channel and Tribune Entertainment to continue the series after Mr. Sorbo leaves. The concept of a commander being replaced has a precedent in the science fiction world. Bruce Boxleitner replaced Michael O'Hare as commander of the space station in the excellent series Babylon 5. Richard Dean Anderson replaced Don S. Davis as the leader of Stargate Command on SciFi's very own series Stargate SG-1. And in the real world, Navy ships continue in the fleet, but their Captains turn over the responsibility for the ship to a new Captain in a formal Change of Command ceremony. We would like to suggest that when Captain Dylan Hunt leaves Andromeda to engage in other pursuits, the Commonwealth would be better off replacing him with another captain and having the ship continue its mission rather than consigning the entire ship and crew to the junk heap."
