<<I always thought that the “eye that does not see” would turn out to be the relic that Morden recovered for Londo, thus gaining his gratitude and paving the way for the Shadows to employ the Centauri ambassador for their own purposes. (This happened in the first season episode called “Signs and Portents,” I think.)>>
But the condition was that he “must save the eye that does not see” so if he had done this than he would not need the other 2, and he would be redeemed already.

Ten Reasons Why Michael Garibaldi is B5’s Hottest Ladies’ Man (from the hairy hands of Corona Simia (fan) Press):

1. His answer to Male Pattern Baldness is dignity.

2. He’s dedicated to job, human/non-human sentient-kind, friends and Harley.

3. He can troubleshoot uncooperative artificial intelligence with one arm in a cast.

4. No one’s quicker at turning the tables in a barfight.

5. Water doesn’t give you bad breath and a bloated middle.

6. He has taste in cartoons.

7. Men who cook are spicier lovers.

8. He’s handy at sophisticated communications systems and pyrotechnics.

9. He has an understated sense of humor and overstated….go figure.

10. Like Winnie-the-Pooh, Garibaldi just IS.

WBFX-20 in Greensboro (who also shows B5) for the past two Sunday mornings has run *two* eps of CSatSM. The second one this week was titled “The Monkey has Landed”. They thought they had found Earth, but it looked like a jungle and was uninhabited except for one primate, appropriately named Lilith. It was (of course) a trap, and Lilith wrapped Chuck around her little finger. I must say that Shao-Lin has the timing of an Ivanova. Lilith was voiced — and I

Top Ten Reasons Garibaldi Won’t Die

10. They killed off the Security Chief on “ST: The Next Generation.”
9. Purloining one “ST” plot twist opens the door to introducing the Holographic Security Chief.
8. Viewers tend to love it when their “pet” character is chronically maimed, injured, tortured, and otherwise ill-treated–but not killed.
7. Garibaldi’s secretly programmed B5’s computer system so that if he’s ever declared dead or missing, it reboots itself to effect a brand-new artificial intelligence: his.
6. The kid he never knew he had went looking for Papa, got lost in Vorlon space, hit a time warp and emerged looking more like Garibaldi’s clone than his kid.
5. Speaking of cloning, considering how impossible it’s going to be to get a replacement from Earth Force, it’s worth a try.
4. Old security chiefs never die, they fake their own deaths so they can operate undercover.
3. His soul will get lost in Babylon Customs and never leave.
2. We’ll be left with only Londo’s jokes.
1. You might as well try to kill Elvis.

I just watched SF Vortex (on the Sci-Fi Channel), and Jerry Doyle said that there’s no romance in Season 4 for Garibaldi. (sniff)

I just found this folder, so excuse me for responding so late to your reaction to Captain Simian. I’m no kid (at least not legally). I’m 23 and I think CS’s humnor is way over the head of kids. Sure, there are plenty of action scenes and brilliant colors and all, but the references are great, the one-liners as sharp as anything on TV and the stories are very sophisticated. If you’re a sci-fi fan, there is plenty here for you. My favorite episode was so metaphysical I couldn’t believe it was on a “kid” show.

And Jerry D. is great as CS! What a cool character. And as I said in the CS folder, Shaolin is the sexiest monkey I’ve ever seen! (Not that I’ve ever seen a sexy monkey. Okay, I admit it, there were times in college….)

On the other hand, JMS keeps everyone in the dark including the cast (need-to-know basis only). So maybe (hopefully) he’s just blowing smoke.

Everything I’ve Ever Needed to Know About Survival, I Learned from My Dead Security Chief.

12. The only thing you can trust is your own shadow–but not in the dark.
11. Take a hint from those old Civil Defense films: “Remember, when you see the flash: Duck and Cover!”
10. Any PPG is a hostile PPG. Never turn your back on one.
9. When you’re working security in sci-fi land, “Break a leg” is a wish for nothing worse.
8. Keep telling yourself you’re just paranoid, and they’ll get you.
7. When things are darkest, you’re better off not turning on a light.
6. Thinking is a hazardous preoccupation. Just shoot something.
5. “Live Long and Prosper”–become a lawyer.
4. Dier by day, lover by night; either way, you end up under a sheet.
3. You’re not getting better. You’re getting older.
2. There are no former security chiefs employed as Wal-Mart Greeters.
1. The word “security” is a self-contained oxymoron.

Pattern Baldness is an Advantage When:

10. Your comlink goes off and there’s no time to comb.
9. You’re running up a sweat, and there’s no hairline to collect perspiration until it drips into your eyes.
8. Someone’s shooting at you and misses “by a hair”–literally.
7. You’re undercover in Centauri drag.
6. You don’t have any hair for your Lurker fugitive to grab and bang your head against the wall–but you’ve got a clear shot at his.
5. You forget to pack shampoo and a comb for a two-week vacation on Minbar.
4. Everyone else on the station is having a bad hair day.
3. You can get more attention from women by leaving your collar open to Disneyland.
2. You have enough to handle with mortal injuries, dandruff would be the Universe mocking you.
1. All you really want out of life is a mission, a break once in awhile–and a woman with an “It’s not the helmet, it’s what’s between the ears” “bumper” sticker on her Harley.

(Lexsnark, Mongoose loves you, but like, I get my kicks from amusing fellow fans–I’d be jammin’ with “dumb blonde” jokes on Centauri Prime, if I thought it would get a reaction.)

You know your day’s a lost cause when:

10. The computer wakes you up with the theme
from “Jaws.”

9. The latest discarnate alien entity to slip
through Customs is a computer-literate methane-
breather.

8. The Centauri ambassador is convinced you
have another Eye in back of your bed.

7. You decipher a renegade transmission from
the lower levels: “Beam me up, Scotty.”

6. You hear, “Not the One”–spoken when you’re
trying to defuse a well-wired bomb.

5. Time-warped five years into the future, you
hear, “Mr. Garibaldi! I thought you were dead!”

4. A Narn turns up critical in Med Bay, and the
only witness describes the perpetrator as “….a
balding human white guy dressed in black.”

3. You’ve just had dinner with Londo Molari,
when he asks how much you know about
interactive poisons.

2. Delen asks if you’d like her to conduct a
“….preventive rebirthing ceremony.”

1. You discover the Vorlons have re-designated
Med Bay “Area 51″–and the Vorlon ambassador
is convinced you have a piece of the true Kosh.

10. He’s not afraid to drink the water.
9. He’s not afraid to admit he’s wrong–which isn’t often.
8. Ivanova is his friend.
7. “Duck Dodgers” is his hero.
6. His PPG may be small, but, oh, what a rifle.
5. His friends don’t need “Dear Abby,” they’ve got Garibaldi.
4. He may holler, “Aw, nuts,” but he never squirrels out.
3. He’ll throw the book of G’Toth when he knows he’s right.
2. He takes a licking and keeps on ticking.

“Looking for Donna”=”Oh, Susan, oh, oh, Susan, oh, oh–looking for Ivanova.”
“Hair”=”Blow it. Stow it. I don’t have to grow any hair.”
“I’ve Got Life”=”I’ve got my ‘bike’ and ride it, too–I’ve got my Duck!”
“Age of Aquarius”=”This is the dawning of the third age of humankind….”

And finally, clipped from advice column:

Dear Mikey,
Who does a guy have to know around here to get a date? I admit, I’m no fashion plate and not all women dig guys in uniform, but has the law of supply-and-demand gone obsolete? We’re an independent station now. There aren’t that many men around. What gives with women? What do they want? Sign me….

Top Ten Reasons I Love Security Chief Garibaldi

10) The way he uses comments such as “Aw Nuts” keeps the censorists away.
9) The way he takes charge and runs out in front to show off that great battle gear.
8) The way he stops a fight by being the baddest dude on B5.
7) The way he deals with the rest of the crew– as if they were crazier than he wants them to think he is.
6) The way he looks in a uniform sets my heart to fluttering….
5) The way he’s not afraid to show off his cooking talents and his concern for his friends by cooking a *home cooked meal* for Dr. Franklin.
4) The way he cuts loose and gathers information just by throwing a table and a chair or two.
3) The way he figured out the Narn language to be able to read anything G’Kar throws at him.
2) The way he always has a mischievious look even though he’s not into any mischief.
1) The way he looks in pajamas…(you can finish this one )

Garibaldi’s Ten Commandments
(Subject to revision upon revelation that Ivanova really is God)

10. Covet all you want, if you swipe it, I’ll break your fingers.

9. Thou shalt not provoke Ivanova, unless you want to join the body count.

8. Thou shalt honor freedom of speech as the right to declare, “Aw, nuts!” in a crowded combat zone.

7. Thou shalt not kill. Let me do it.

6. Thou shalt not commit carnal acts of lust upon another sentient being, I don’t care what you think is part of the “agreement.”

5. Remember that there is but one God, Who has not taken up residence in the Ambassadors’ wing.

4. Honor thy fellow travelers, be they Minbari, Centauri, Narn, Vorlon, Lurker, Lawyer or Pac’m’ara, for no one survives out here alone.

3. I am the Chief, by God, and thou shalt have no Narn law before mine.

2. Thou shalt uphold your covenants and keep your word, for Garibaldi’s is no “still, small voice” of conscience.

1. And the first law is, love whom you want, hate whom you please, I don’t take excuses, you toe the line.

…..this must be Babylon 5.

Excuses, excuses, excuses, you can bet the G-Mon’s heard or offered all:

10. In Med Bay: “I don’t know what happened to her mind, Mr. Garibaldi. Somebody said she asked the Vorlon, ‘Is it boxers or briefs?'”

9. Garibaldi to Sheridan: “He claims confiscating his ‘dust’ is a violation of his right to freedom of religion. I say it’s a mindless cult.”

8. To Franklin in Med Bay: “Look, I’ve come in here with burns, broken bones, bruises and you-name-it so often, my butt’s imprinted on half the beds. So I forgot to come in for a dental cleaning. Shoot me.”

7. Turning down Vir’s wedding reception invitation: “We have something like that on Earth, but there’s only one Guest of Honor. We call it an ‘Irish wake.'”

6. At the scene of a massacre: “We got trouble, Chief. Some idiot gave the Pac’m’ara a copy of ‘Night of the Living Dead.'”
0002000007E90000C30F7E3,
5. Zach Allen to Garibaldi when Londo demolishes his own quarters: “Are you sure it couldn’t be G’kar? Hey, computers don’t program themselves to mimic a chirping cricket.”

4. Garibaldi complaining to Sheridan about Marcus Cole’s methods of getting information: “Look, I don’t answer to Earth Force anymore. Next time, I want in on the fun.”

3. Garibaldi to Ivanova: “They come here seeking truth. They come here seeking the Holy Grail. Now it’s the reincarnation of Elvis. Want an audition?”

2. In the bar, as two fallen would-be combatants are carried out: “Everything’s under control, Chief. The Narn challenged the Minbari, the Minbari didn’t speak Narn, it could’ve gotten hot, but Commander Ivanova walked in with Marcus.”

1. Garibaldi to the War Council after decoding a renegade probe’s transmission: “I just don’t get it. The same message, over and over, in every known sentient language and a few we can’t identify: ‘Kilroy was here.'”

Mongoose takes a break from dumb jokes, has a meeting to attend (“Hi, I’m Mongoose, and I’m a cyberholic….”).
But, I have now seen “Grey 17 is Missing,” cried, cried for Dr. Franklin. Mongoose has been there, doesn’t help that B5 airs in Atlanta at the vulnerable hour of 5:00 in the morning.
As for the G-Mon, YES, he is acting like Garibaldi again, kicking major tail. And he’s got Granny’s gun! Granny was a cop!! But that dummy business with the “tranqs,” and Robert Englund (check my spelling) playing the baddie? No remarks about life being only a dream? See here, Mongoose loves B5, loves G-Mon, but if the next alien shows up in a hockey mask, Mongoose will bite somebody. CHOMP.

I just saw “Walkabout” and although I was finally able to see it this Sunday (it was pre-empted for the baseball playoffs) I must say it was not what I expected after having read all of the spoilers. I really loved the War Council meeting when Garibaldi and Ivanava stood up to Sheridan. I was really glad that Garibaldi had something to say to G’Kar for his refusal to order the cruiser into the operation with the White Star. I was wondering about the new Kosh though… is he supposed to be good or bad or are “all Kosh” good just with verying degrees of tolerance?Subj: Re:Mongoose rules

What might be said if Garibaldi sampled 20th-Century TV….
0002000007D70000E3407D1,
“Baywatch” has lots of bare skin: “A gentleman never answers the door without a shirt.”

“Melrose Place” has more vice than the LAPD: “Aw, nuts.”

“NYPD Blue” displays an assortment of buns: “There’s no salvaging limp pasta.”

“Roseanne” features tacky, tasteless-sarcastic humor: “Was she ever married to Londo?”

“Highlander” proclaims there will one day be only one Immortal: “It’s always, ‘the One.’ Why never the Two? The Triad? Geez, can you imagine trying to work Security when there are only two left, and they’re going after each other all the time?”

“Law and Order” examines the oft-inequitable frustrations of the legal system: “Just kill the lawyers.”

“X-Files” recounts creepy-eerie investigations of the terrifying and the bizarre: “That’s the breaks, Mulder gets Scully, and I get Zach.”

“ER” displays all manner of medical and personal crises: “I’ve dreamed about retiring to a place like that.”

“Homicide: Life on the Streets” depicts the unglamorous lives of big-city police detectives: “Those were the days. One murder couldn’t set off an interplanetary war.”

“Grace Under Fire” is the “comic” portrayal of a formerly-abused, divorced mother’s struggle to raise well-adjusted children under mis-adjusted circumstances: “Is Ivanova watching this? Get the Captain in here, he’ll never complain about our pessimism again.”

“Geraldo” tackles controversial subjects such as mandatory curfews and gun control: “I think my great-great-grandmother shot him.”

Top Ten Ways to Keep From Making Garibaldi Angry.
10) Don’t wander around the station asking about the Rangers.
0002000008100000EB1180A,
9) Don’t call secret Night Watch meetings.

8) Don’t hand him a PPG and tell him he can’t use it.

7) Don’t act friendly and have your government attack another’s home planet at the same time.

6) Don’t say you’re fine when he can tell you are hooked on stims.

5) Don’t stay in your quarters for a week without any contact with anyone and then act putout when he checks on you.

4) Don’t have a War Council Meeting without him.

3) Don’t act stunned or surprised when he asks you to back up your convictions with
your actions.

2) Don’t come to the station, after being away for a year, and only leave a message
saying “Good-Bye”.

1) Don’t follow him around the Zokolo saying he’s “not The ONE”

Poor, Vir. He’s such a victim. I think it’s time he stood up to Londo.

I’m surprised Michael agreed to G’kar’s request.

The scene with Reefa and the singing is REALLY twisted! I loved it!

The scene with Lennier and the singing is very cute.

A Serious Post:
Like, this is jammin’ a little bit off-topic, but I felt like posting it. I have a lot of friends in Atlanta. Special, creative people they are, good people, I love them. On this folder, I post to people who do not know me except for what I choose to reveal. I have no face, only a screen name. And yet, I am accepted. I fit in. I wonder how many others sense the warmth here?
“B5″ fandom is most special to me. The people who post to this folder are more special still. It is easy to love people who are visibly close, because you see their faults and their humanity as well as their virtues, and they are no threat. But the Garibaldi people love and accept strangers. In Cyberspace, sometimes people use the “invisibility factor” as a shield to lash out and vent. This does not happen on the Garibaldi folder. Wise people, you are, brilliant in spirit as well as mind, you will never be threatened because you know who you are, and your identity is your own forevermore. I speak in generalities, but I could as well go down the list of people who post here, I have not seen an exception, and this folder existed for months before I joined it.
0002000008650000FB3785F, A fandom is made up of individuals, not the icon whom we cherish. The icon of this folder is human and flawed–but what character on B5 is more loving than the G-Mon? Perhaps this explains the noble strength of the personalities drawn here. Mongoose gives each of my Brothers and Sisters here an affectionate kiss. No reason, I just feel like it.

Mongoose–Garibaldi brings together like people; JMS is not considered The Great Maker for nothing. He created this wonderful person that those of us who hang out on this board love so dearly for his own reasons (i.e., his story), but a marvelous off-shoot is that he’s brought together so many folks who mesh together so very well.

6. Challenge a Vorlon, “Not the Kosh!”

5. Order, “Water, with a twist.”

4. Storm into the War Room declaring, “I claim this station in the name of–Duck Dodgers in the 24th-and-a-half Century!”

3. Run naked (from the waist up) through all 29/30 levels of Grey Sector while shouting, “I hate Grey Sector!”

Before CoL&D, Garibaldi had no bars on the outer shoulder where the rank pins are worn (for Navy at least). Now, in the new, cool black Army of Light uniforms, he’s got a pin. Looks durn like a Lieutenant’s bar. Did he get a field promotion and we haven’t heard anything about it or what?

TOP TEN WAYS YOU CAN TELL IF GARIBALDI HAS BEEN IN YOUR QUARTERS:
0002000008480001134D842,

10. All of your Kitchenware has been put away by size, shape and color.

9. You now know every Duck Dodgers episode by heart.

8. There are motorcycle stains on your carpet.

7. There is NO hair left in your bathroom sink.

6. Your PPG has been well cleaned and polished.

5. You’ve gained a new appreciation for the phrase “Aw, nuts”!!

4. You have that frisked all over feeling.

3. It’s definitely briefs, not boxers.

2. There is a sumptuous, homemade breakfast waiting for you.

1. There is a very good reason why you’re wearing that big grin.

I just thought I ‘d share my view of G17iM ; I thought for sure Marcus was to be the sacrificial lamb. I just could not believe he was asking to fight to the death over Delenn’s postion as Ranger One and yet I knew it was his duty as a Ranger. But I thought this was JMS’s way of killing off one of the main characters without taking the much beloved G-mon from us. As much as I like Marcus, and I must say I was worried for him, I am even more worried for our gorgeous hero. I know several of you have already seen the next episode and I’m sure you already know that I am truly off my rocker but I don’t want anything to jeopardize my place in that line !!!!! (grin)
As for darts out of a dummy’s eye, a little strange, but I guess that is what JMS was *shooting* for (ha, ha.) I am getting even more curious about the relationship between D & S especially after hearing the *cranky* line on the promo for the next show. Boy they just keep us begging for more don’t they.

 

As for Mongoose, I can tell you that it feels very good to be able to visit this folder and get a laugh or at least a grin without worrying about the day-to-day happenings in Corpus Christi. I know you would not recognize me in a million years ( even though some times it feels like I know every parent and student in this city from day school, night school and summer school, it seems Italk shop with everyone at the grocery store , movie theater, restaurant, book store, etcetera ) and I know that you share something with me that only a few of my friends even understand , much less follow on a weekly basis. These two things, along with everyone’s sense of humor has drawn me to this board and has kept me coming back. I know you don’t expect me to be a role model or a parent figure but just some one to have a great discussion about B5 and Garibaldi with and that makes for a very enjoyable and relaxing hour or so, at least… : > Thanks for involving me and challenging me to partake in the hilarious *listing* of Garibaldi traits.

(I’m loosing B5 after October, but thanks to Annie I’ll be able to see the G-mon in monthly increments). Many apologies before hand if I have to ask what may be dumb questions of you guys, but since I won’t see the shows as often as you bear with me.

Exerpts from the philosophical wisdom of the “Tao of Garibaldi”

11. Transcending time and all diversity in the Universe, is this constant: Addiction is the ulitimate abusive love affair.

10. In space, where no one can hear you scream, immediate action is preferable to negotiation.

9. Paranoia takes a toll, the wise security chief always carries correct change.

8. Zero-grav is the great equalizer, there are no welter-weights.

7. One will never know what one does not tell oneself.

6. The Universe is a very, very big place, but you can never hide from yourself.

5. The surest known motivation to survive occurs at the moment you realize you’re about to become Purina Zarg Chow.

4. We are all of us alone, and none of us alone, for the security of a space station is but an illusion of mortal engineering, and mutual annihilation is but one mishap away.

3. A security chief’s life needs no purpose, it IS a purpose: Try to stay alive while keeping other lives from being jeopardized by those with no reverence for life.

2. Question nothing, be as the Uncarved Block, act as One with the fabric of the Universe–for out here, taking time to question usually leads to lying under fabric of a more tangible nature.

1. Nowhere in space does the sun set on injustice.

Mongoose adds, the showing of “Duck Dodgers in the 24-1/2 Century” is a more-than-20-year tradition during judging intermission of the Costume Contest at what was the Atlanta Fantasy Fair, now Atlanta Starcon. The entire audience joins in each time the Daffy One points index finger in the air and shouts:

“DUCK DODGERS IN THE TWENTY-FOURTH-AND-A-HALF CENTURY!!!”

Believe you me, you have not seen the Duck until you have seen an entire audience echoing his war cry.

0002000007FF00015B797F9, Bigger problem: How do you tell if your security chief might be possessed?

10. He goes “walkabout” among the lurkers muttering, “Our name is legion. We have always been here.”

9. He floats around in a perpetual state of zero-gravity.

8. You catch him setting every environmental temperature gauge on the station for “hotter than hell.”

7. You race to the scene of an hysterical mass exodus and hear Zach Allen shout, “That’s not a Zarg, that’s Garibaldi!”

6. He proposes offering political asylum to mass and serial killers.

5. A Narn challenges him to arm-wrestle, and he starts by taking the challenger’s arm–off at the shoulder.

4. Lennier prepares to say grace, whereupon he snarls, “Let us prey!” and grabs a knife.

3. He starts a B5 fashion trend by wearing sunglasses all the time–to hide his iridescent eyes.

2. Brother Theo surreptitiously slips him holy water, straight up.

1. People check in with Security, but they don’t check out.

Fortunately, this morning I remembered that at Necronomicon96, JMS showed the “brand new” opening credits for season 4. (At the time he showed them, they were only three days old!) Of course, Garibaldi/Jerry Doyle was in the credits, so I’m no longer worried.

Then again…they *did* remove Talia/Andrea from the credits once Andrea’s charactor was removed.

Oh no…..now I’m worried again!

It has recently been discovered that Mr. Garibaldi was sucked into a space/time continuum and has, in an alternate universe, actually been in his quarters all this time working on an incredibly long line that began forming outside his quarters since before Walkabout. No news on Mr. Garibaldi’s physical condition as yet, although he’s rumored to be holding up well.

Let’s set this straight. Londo will “surrender to his greatest fear” (being strangled by G’Kar) in order to save Sheridan and Delenn so they can help the Centauri. This was his last chance for redemption, according to Lady Roddenberry, er, Morella. That means he will have blown his two two earlier chances already, including “killing the one who is already dead” (and I believe that “And The Rock Cried Out, No Hiding Place” shows Londo blowing that one).
00020000078300017C3E77D,
That leaves “Do not kill the eye that does not see.” Londo basically has 17 years in order to find a way to screw that one up.

“As promised, ladies and gentlemen, here is the latest update on the What Ever Happened to Mr. Garibaldi? story. We take you live and direct to our roving reporter, Harvey Brenmar, who is outside Mr. Garibaldi’s quarters on Babylon 5 talking to the apparent leader of a group who has taken on the name Battle of the Line. This is Jan Mahan, signing off. To you, Harve.”
00020000080C00018B6C806,
“Thanks, Jan. This is Harvey Brenmar, coming to you live and direct from Babylon 5. I’m standing outside Security Chief Michael Garibaldi’s quarters amidst an incredible array of beautiful women here to support the man they’ve come to call, the G-mon. With me is The Lady T, who tells me she’s the self-appointed leader of this brave group. Lady T….may I call you Lady T?

The Lady smiles warmly. “You may address me as m’lady or as Lady T, as you wish.”

“Lady T, this group apparently has been here since before Walkabout. Can you tell me why?”

“Well, Harve, our valiant Line was born out of something the G-mon said in Ceremonies of Light and Dark. He spoke of fear in a way that touched our hearts, and made us want to touch him. Later, as the Line grew, it became much, much more.”

“You mentioned to me earlier that you people are protesting. Can you tell me what this is about?”

“Yes. Several months ago the Doyle-mon was heard saying that The Great Maker had no plans for romance for the G-mon for all of season four! Needless to say, the Line grew increasingly after that–the support for the G-mon from those who love him is immense. Our cause is just! We Live for the G-mon, We Fight for the G-mon, and We Die for the G-mon!”

Cries of “G-mon, G-mon, G-mon” are heard up and down the hallway.

“M’lady, how did you folks become known as Battle of The Line? Isn’t that the name of the last great battle during the Earth-Mimbari war? Aren’t you a little concerned about the implications of that name?”

“First of all, Harve, we of the Line care nothing about anything except the G-mon. Second, quite frankly I don’t remember how that name started, except that once acquired, it stuck. Our Cause is Just! We are here to give the G-mon all the tender loving care and support that The Great Maker has denied our hero!”

Cries of “G-mon” can still be heard reverberating through the hall.

“We’re running out of time here. One last question: Can you tell me about the rumors this is evolving into a terrorist organization.”
0002000007FF000193727F9,
“We are a peaceful protest! We protest out of love, and so we protest *in* love–in a *peaceful,* orderly fashion.”

“But you wear a broadsword.”

“Simply a symbol. Okay, there are rumors of some Line members trying to cut in front, or worse break into the G-mon’s quarters through the back way. But they’re just rumors. We’re a peaceful, loving group here.”

“Thank you, Lady T, for your time. Do you have any parting comments for our viewers?”

“Yes.” Directed toward the camera, “We Live for the G-mon. We Fight for the G-mon. If you love the G-mon, please, write The Great Maker. Tell him you love the G-mon, too. Tell him the G-mon needs love! That season five is too long a wait for Babylon 5’s sweet, sexy Security Chief. We of the Line are doing our…..”

Moving in front of The Lady, “Thank you again for your time, m’lady.” To the camera crew, “Cut!”Subj: Midnight and TOS

Dear Mongoose,

I adore your top 10 to ? lists……but as “Casablanca” is one of my all time favorites….
might I suggest Ingrid Bergman rather than Laureen Bacall. While she and Bogey did
a number of movies together….and became husband and wife after filming a few movies
together…this classic isn’t one of them.

Strange you should mention it…..they do a take the final scene in a “Scarecrow”
episode and it gets adapted for Captain Simian also.

With respects to the Mongoose.

We have to “Top Ten”, we have “The Line”.

What are we going to to when the inevitable occurs? Without our Chief, the board will become nothing but echos of dreams, with no character to give them life. Will we be able to petition the Great Maker to bring him back?

The best defense is a great offense, perhaps the GM isn’t aware of this small but loyal and vocal board. Should we get his attention? Do we really want Zack Allen as Chief?

Friend Sheridan98 is quite correct. If I got in there, there’d be no getting me out. (wicked grin) She is also correct about the personal request from The Great Maker–but *only* if he wishes to negotiate for the sake of The Line!

Hence, the reason I have chosen to make the supreme sacrifice of leadership. I shall stay out of the line and continue the fight for The Line. The Lady shall lead this ragged band of hardcore G-mon-ites to victory! I shall take our cause to the media! I shall inform the masses of the G-mon’s plight! If necessary, I shall take our demands to The Great Maker Himself!

Fear not, o brave “waiter’s in line” for as long as I stay out of the line, The Line shall move–and we shall move toward Victory!!!!!!

An Open Letter To The Great Maker:
0002000008090001C2E1803,
To: Joe, Maker of Worlds
Subject: Force Multipliers for G-mon-ites

On behalf of the G-mon-ites who hang out in the Garibaldi folder on AOL’s B5 board, Thank You for creating Security Chief Michael Garibaldi–one of the most interesting, humorous, and sensitive (not to mention sexy) charactors on television today.

However, I believe you are unaware of a morale problem in the Garibaldi folder, or you would have done something by now. We *have* instituted two major programs–the Top Ten lists and The Line–to increase morale in the folder, although we don’t know how long these two “bandaids” will hold.

Sir, morale began plummetting with the rumor that you planned to kill off a major charactor during season three. Even knowing now that Kosh was your intended victim all along, morale is still bad. You see, the Doyle-mon’s announcement on SF Vortex that you had no plans for romance for the G-mon for season four depressed many loyal G-mon-ites. Moreover, because many of us have heard that the G-mon disappears at the end of Z’ha’dum and already knew of your season four second episode title, Whatever Happened to Mr. Garibaldi?, many of us remained concerned as to the G-mon’s fate.

As the self-proclaimed leader of the Battle of The Line, I respectfully ask that you check into the situation and reconsider your decision on “no romance for the G-mon.” Although I highly recommend you read the entire Garibaldi folder to thoroughly grasp the breadth of the situation, please read at least a few of the Top Ten lists as well as any posts on The Line (also, the Eleven O’Clock Update outlines the desperation of the situation). In addition, as publicity *can* bring about public outcry, this memo is being placed in the AskJMS#11 and Garibaldi folders on AOL’s B5 board, and I am also asking that loyal G-mon-ites copy and repost this anywhere on the internet where you hang out.

Very Respectfully,
The Lady T

But is being strangled really Londo’s greatest fear, or is his greatest fear the demise of the Centauri Republic — or is it perhaps the idea that making the Republic “great” again (or even salvaging it from certain doom) is no longer in his hands, but must be surrendered to somebody else?

Somehow, I never got the impression that Londo particularly feared his own death — but the Republic has always been of the greatest importance to him.

10. A patient lot, they make more moonlighting than on their regular jobs by charging hourly fees to stand in long, long ticket lines.

9. Their vehicles sport bumper stickers declaring, “Thou Shalt Place No Hairless Science Fiction Icons Before Garibaldi.”

8. They regard rumors of character demise as a test of faith, and stubborn local-station cancellation as the ultimate spiritual attack.

7. Lured perhaps initially by the call of Jerry Doyle’s voice, they’re never too proud to publicly declare their fondness for “Captain Simian and the Space Monkeys.”

6. Always fair-minded and willing to share, they will cheerfully rope in anyone making attempt to backslide out of line.

5. They attest that sacramental water goes well with all gourmet dishes.

4. Though skilled in all computer arts, they nonetheless staunchly uphold the death penalty for user-unfriendly artificial intelligence.

3. They refer to December repeats as “the Nightmare Before Christmas.”

2. Accepting of all religious faiths, they assert that regardless of whether one follows the Prince of Peace, one had best believe Garibaldi will keep it–do not cross him.

1. Asked, “How many Garibaldi fans does it take to change a light bulb?”, they hand over a list of Top Ten B5 Light Bulb Jokes with the following highlighted:
“Garibaldi’s fans see no need for change.”

You guys are great! Thanks for a fun board.

However, I wouldn’t get too worried about Garibaldi’s purported demise…A few issues back in the Zocalo (if you don’t get it, you can search the archives on the Zocalo website) they featured an interview with Doyle at a sf convention in Florida (not, obviously, the Necronomicon). There’s a fairly lengthy paraphrase of what Doyle did and said during his presentation there, and it seems evident from his comments (I’m inferring here, of course) that Garibaldi would definitely be around for season four, and likely season five…though what condition he might be in, due to JMS’s wicked imagination, he refused to say.

So hold the faith, Loyal Keepers of the Line. Meanwhile, I’ll be over hanging around C & C with Ivanova (no offense to the cool balding guy…he’s just not my kind of cute.)

“Thanks, Jan. This is Harvey Brenmar coming to you from Babylon 5. I’m in the hallway outside Security Chief Michael Garibaldi’s quarters, and I have to tell you–it’s chaos right now. All weekend long the G-mon-ites had been demonstrating peacefully. The Line was moving well, and the general mood here was good. However, with this morning’s news of The Great Maker’s reply …. well, all hell’s broken loose. People have been running around and the two Guardians of the Queue have had their hands full trying to keep order. Worse yet, The Lady T just came on the scene a little while ago and she was mobbed by angry Line Holders screaming about how little The Great Maker cares about the G-mon. Needless to say, when she finally got someone to give her the straight story, she wasn’t too pleased …. okay, she was furious …. okay, she flipped out. She drew her broadsword, banged on the G-mon’s door with it’s hilt screaming something about eternal love and that everything would work out, then stormed off in search of The Great Maker. I’m quite concerned, Jan.”

“Yes, Harve. And if I were The Great Maker I’d be concerned, too. We’ll be providing upates to you, our viewers, on this story as we receive them.”

“We now return you to your regularly scheduled program.”Subj: Re:Duct Work Crowd

Ya know … I’m not really sure which worries me more…. the *sanity* (okay so it’s relative– and this is definately an orphan) of The Lady T [{{{{hugs dear}}}}}} you know I’m kidding] — or the safety of the “great Maker” (pssst == hey jms don’t worry — I’ve seen her work with a broadsword — just stand still and you won’t run into the blade).

ROTFLOL …. ah this is entertainment … btw … all you hoping for line order changes due to the chaos…. well we have images of the correct precedence stored on data crystals .. multiple copies… hehehehe.. we are starting to consider having Zanthras control the re-positioning of folks when this is over … but his initial viewing of the images was NOT a pretty sight (or sound) …

will definately keep you posted… and I’ve augmented the Sig with a Glock, an MP-15, and a few of these “phaser-thingies” some snert left at the cafe yesterday .. .kinda interesting little toy – lotsa bang with no recoil …. intriquing.

To Whom It May Concern
Subj: Rumors and Inuendo

I wish to dispell all rumors and state the facts for all to see.

First, I repeat–This Is Not A Terrorist Group! I am tired of all the whispers I hear implying that it is. We are gathered in Love and Love alone. We wish harm to no one. Our sole purpose is to give the G-mon all the tender loving care that is currently being denied him by The Great Maker. The additional weaponry brought in by the Guardians of The Queue was simply to bring about order during a crisis, which I am glad to say is now over. Further, I repeat, my sword is simply a symbol of our valiant struggle and I have no intention of using it on *anyone.*
00020000095300020BE394D,
Second, contrary to media reports I did *not* go off in search of The Great Maker. Nor did I *flip out.* Yes, I was furious at The Great Maker’s reply. However, I went off to plan–to pray and to meditate to determine our next move. (I realize that some out there disapprove of that type of maneuver–however, as the self-proclaimed leader of this brave band of Line Holders, that is the way *I* handle a crisis. If you don’t like it, go self-proclaim someone else.) Yes, I did draw my sword, but that was simply to bang on the G-mon’s door to get his attention. I was concerned that if he heard of The Great Maker’s reply he would worry, and he has enough to worry about right now as it is. I wanted to reassure him that all would work out okay, and I truly mean that. We will achieve victory!

Third, my plan from the beginning has always been to persuade The Great Maker, through peaceful means of course, to change his mind about his “no romance” decision for the G-mon for season four. As far as I’m concerned, any episode not “in the can” is still subject to change. As a gesture of good will, I am not posting this message in the AskJMS#11 folder, thereby *not* detracting further from other B5 fans who are not G-mon-ites. I wish only to negotiate with The Great Maker, to resolve this battle peacefully and without bloodshed.

With Light and Love,
The Lady T

Greetings!
I have been reading this folder for the past couple of months, but have been reluctant to add my own voice to this discussion out of shyness and a natural reticence. However, Lady T’s gallant efforts to secure some semblance of a romantic life for a character she (and others) cares greatly about have moved me to write. Perhaps I can offer a helpful suggestion: if the creator will not give you what you want, why not do it yourself?
0002000007C0000215307BA, I’ve seen great creativity and wit posted on this board and see no reason why these talents cannot be put to good use writing short stories, novellas, novels, and screenplays designed to please yourselves. It’s not the same as having an official episode, but believe me, do it yourself pleasure can be very satisfying. After all, when you’re the writer, you control the vertical, and you control the horizontal. And in space no one can hear you moan.
So, to those of you waiting in line, don’t just sit there, get out your keyboards, do it for yourselves, and if you like, swap stories with your sisters. Hoping to have some interesting reading very soon, Yours, WestieSubj: Re:Open Letter #2

JMS has requested that all story ideas be someplace where he might not see it accidently (legal stuff — had problems before), and therefore in a private forum somewhere.

HOWEVER, there is a mailing list called b5-creative just for this. I have the subscription info if anyone is interested. Yes, G gets a bit of a love life (still gets overlooked by a lot of people — just not by me ;>), it just depends on the viewpoint of the person writing it.

Unfortunately, my feeling is that God gave The Great Maker the tale of Babylon 5 to give to the world. He’s doing an excellent job, and far be it from me to usurp that gift/tale from him.

Okay, so JMS is an athiest…. As far as I’m concerned, athiests make the best instruments ’cause they think it all comes from within and aren’t trying to second guess themselves like some “believers” would try to second guess God (hehe).

JMS recently said the Vorlons are very old — old enough to remember “Winky Dink.”

For those who don’t remember “Winky Dink,” it was a kids’ TV show where you put a big plastic sheet over your TV picture tube, and every once in a while, the cartoon would ask you to draw something on the plastic, so the cartoon character could use it. So I got to thinking,…

“Okay, kids, RosalindB needs a door RIGHT HERE that goes into Mr. Garibaldi’s quarters. Draw the door right in this place. That’s great! Now, RosalindB will open the door and go inside. As soon as she closes the door, be sure to erase it! We don’t want anyone else from The Line barging in unannounced, now, do we?”

Garibaldi enters his quarters after a long day. Just as he starts to loosen his collar, his link goes off.
“Garibaldi. Go.”
Zack’s voice, sounding a little distorted. “Yeah Chief, they’re having a problem in Gray sector. They need you there right away.”
Garibaldi: “Aw NUTS! OK, where?”
“Gray 31.”
Garibaldi: “Wait a minute, didn’t we just agree that there are 30 levels to Gray sector?”
“Well, uh, they just did another re-calibration. You know how it is.”
Garibaldi: “Hey Zack, you OK? You sound kinda strange.”
“Yeah (cough) my throat’s a little sore. It’s nuthin.”
Garibaldi: “I’m on my way.”
Garibaldi leaves his quarters, gently fending off the line menbers (“Sorry ladies, duty calls.”) and into the lift.
At Gray 31, the lights go out, the lift stops & the doors open. Garibaldi leaves and the doors immediately close behind him. “I HATE Gray sector!!!” Then he sees a strange flickering light ahead. As Garibaldi approaches, he smells, could it be, YES, bagna cuda! As he turns the corner, he sees a table and candles, and Duck Dodgers playing (muted) on a vid screen.
“Welcome, Mr. Garibaldi” the Faf-lady murmers. “I apologize for bringing you here under false pretense, but I DO hate long lines!”
Above the distant din of swords banging on the sealed hatches, Garibaldi whispers, “I LOVE Gray sector!”

Six signs that Captain Simian is having a subliminal effect on Garibaldi:

6. Instead of “Oh nuts”, now says “Oh bananas”.

5. Addresses Delenn as “Shao Lin”.

4. At dinner in the mess hall, orders Ben & Jerry’s Chunky Monkey for dessert.

3. Almost starts another war when he mistakes the head of a Warrior Caste member for a coconut.

2. Keeps grooming Londo’s hair crest.

As Roz reaches her recently drawn door…..she is suddenly arrested by the B5 security
team watching the line……It seems that this sort of plastic sheeting was outlawed some
years ago as being dangerous to the environment.

In a moment of solidarity, the women of the line understanding Roz’s frustration, rally to her
defense. The Security Team retreats with the plastic in hand and Roz is returned to her
former place in the line as a tribute to her ingenius solution to the situation.

Greetings from the Guardian of the Queue! Glad to see you aboard.

Captain Simian is a perfectly riotous cartoon — a sendup of sci-fi in general, and about anything else they can think of. The voice of the cute, fuzzy Captain is graciously provided by none other than Jerry Doyle. :) Some other people, too: Malcolm McDowell, Dom Irrera, James Avery, some guy named Dorn or something, and Andrea Thompson has even had a guest “hearing”.

Yes, The Lady is Back!

Thank you all so much for your posts–we have an *incredible* group that hangs out on this board! These past five days have been kinda rough on me, and your posts sure raised my spirits.

And now The Lady is back for her G-mon. Ah, to think of the G-mon. That sweet, sexy security chief. MMmmmmmm…..OOOOooooooo……

[I think The Lady is losing it here.]

“OOooooooOOOOOOooooooo”

[Yup, she’s lost it.]

The Lady looks around suddenly discovering that she’s in the hallway outside Babylon 5’s Security Chief’s quarters. A long line of sad-faced women stretches out before her.

“What’s wrong?” she asks the first in line.

“The G-mon’s been called away.”

“Where?”

“Not sure, but someone down the line said she heard him say something about Level 31 in Grey Sector when he got into the lift.”

“There is no Level 31 in Grey Sector.”
0002000007B700026BB27B1,
“That’s what I thought, but he’s been gone for quite a while and we’re worried.”

Telling the brave woman not to worry, The Lady heads off to the nearest lift. “Level 31, Grey Sector,” she says upon entering. A computer voice tells her there is no level 31 there. “Locate Mr. Garibaldi, then.” The computer then tells her that he’s on Level 31, Grey Sector. The Lady smiles, draws her broadsword, and points it at an access panel. A blue glow emanates from the sword’s tip. Suddenly the chirping sounds of reprogramming are heard. When complete, The Lady again asks to be taken to Level 31, Grey Sector–the lift begins moving.

[Will our Lady get to level 31? And what will she do to the Faf-lady when she gets there? For answers to this and other questions, tune in tomorrow morning as our saga continues…..]Subj: Re:Dorn Who?

Garibaldi as a Minbari–No hair on head is tolerable, but no hair on chest?

Garibaldi as Centauri–The trappings of aristocracy do not suit his ground-pounder nature.

Garibaldi as Narn–What, no more sense of humor?

Garibaldi as Pac’ma’ra–Michael’s evil twin.

Garibaldi as ShadowMan–Who knows what evil lurks in the hearts of men? He doesn’t need the Shadows to figure that out.

The Lady walks through the darkened corridor of Grey 31 toward the flickering lights. As she approaches she smells the remnants of a meal. “That little….,” she thinks, “that’s his favorite!” Drawing nearer she can see that the meal is over and the two are chatting chummily, fondling eachother’s fingertips. The Lady draws her broadsword and moves in.

The two separate, flinging themselves backward, away from eachother, as the blade neatly splits the table in two. “On my sword, Faf-lady, you shall stand before The Line for summary judgment!” The Lady says pointing her blade at the Faf-lady’s sternum.

“Hey, Lady T, please, ” the G-mon pleads.

The Lady’s heart warms at the sound of the security chief’s voice. “I have no intention of harming her, my love,” she says sweetly, “however, The Line may have other ideas,” she adds, her green eyes flashing at the Faf-lady.

“Please, she didn’t mean any harm.”

“She’ll stand judgment nonetheless.”

The G-mon moves behind The Lady and slips his arms around her waist; nuzzling her neck he whispers, “Please, m’lady, for me?”

The Lady firmly tells her knees to remain steady. “She did you no harm?”

“None.”

“She fed you well?”

“Very well.”

“Very well, then.” Lowering her sword, The Lady turns and puts her arms around the G-mon’s waist. “We must leave now.” The Faf-lady’s jaw drops as the two disappear.

The Lady rests her cheek against the G-mon’s shoulder, holding him close, yet knowing she must leave. “You’re back,” she says softly.
00020000084C00027B90846,
Garibaldi opens his eyes and notices he’s back in his quarters. “W-why here? You could’ve taken me anywhere. Wait a minute. How did you….”

The Lady pulls back slightly and places a finger across his sensual lips. Quite sadly, she says, “My love, I serve The Line. And by serving The Line, I serve you.”

“You could serve me quite well right now,” he says softly, momentarily losing himself in her deep green eyes. “You don’t have to go,” he says, leaning to kiss her.

The Lady pulls away abruptly. “No, please, I can’t. I know what’ll happen.” She looks at him longingly. “I’ve made a vow. To serve The Line.”

“The Line, The Line, I’m sick of The Line. You know what that is? One after another. More than I’d ever care to count. I don’t want The Line. You know what I want? I just want one. One sweet lady I can call my own. Someone to come home to after a hard day. Someone to listen to me bitch. Someone to laugh at my jokes, and maybe tell me a joke or two. Someone who likes my cooking, can put up with my compulsiveness, and won’t complain because I work too hard. I just want one person, not a whole line of ’em. And right now I just want you.”

Tears well in The Lady’s eyes as she backs toward the door. “I know, my love. That’s why we’re here. It’s what this battle is all about. That’s why we serve, and that’s why I fight for you.”

Knowing he’s hurt her, the security chief goes to her, puts his arms around her, and pulls her close. “I’m sorry. I didn’t mean it. I know how hard you work. And I know how much this means to you.” Grabbing a hankerchief from his pocket, the thoughtful G-mon lifts her chin, then dabs her tear-filled eyes. “Come on back in. We’ll sit down and talk. You can tell me how the battle goes.”

Fighting the urge to sniffle, knowing how unlady-like that is, The Lady nods.

[Will The Lady ever leave the G-mon’s quarters? Is the G-mon really that fickle? How *is* the battle going? Does The Lady T, like Mongoose, really have too much time on her hands? For the answer to these and other questions, stay tuned…..]Subj: za ha doom

The Lady sips on the glass of water the thoughtful security chief brought her. Having blown her nose as quietly as she could while the G-mon’s back was turned, she feels confident that the urge to sniffle won’t return. “The battle doesn’t go well, my love. The Great Maker has thus far ignored my pleas for negotiations. My gesture of good will apparently goes unnoticed, and he’s ignored the minor comments I’ve left in his folder. I’m unsure where to go at this point. I’m afraid I might have to follow through on those terrorism threats.”

“If you do I’d have to arrest you.”

“That might not be *too* bad, you know.” The Lady smiles warmly and gives the G-mon a wink. “The interrogation sessions could last forever.” The G-mon chuckles knowingly. “But I could never do that. I *do* worship Him, you know.”

“I don’t understand. After all he’s done. After all he hasn’t done. Why?”

“If I could, I’d send your mother a dozen roses; I’d send your father Thank You cards by the score. But I can’t, so I worship Him. He brought *you* to me–I could do nothing less.” The Lady takes another sip and swallows hard, knowing she must confess something to her love that he might not like. “And there’s more, my love. You’re not the only one I love–you’re just my favorite.” Garibaldi stares at his lap dejectedly. “Please, don’t. I couldn’t bear it. I love you more than ever, but I also love John, Delenn, Marcus … I even love the Shadows. I love everything about this show. Before The Line, I was all over the B5 board, as well as the internet. But once The Line was formed, I dedicated myself to you and all your faithful followers. I vowed to see this through to the end. But it must end soon. I can’t take much more of this. It’s been a long time since I’ve even hit the Ivanova folder. I need my life back. There’s more to Babylon 5 than just you. But I won’t abandon you, my love, or The Line. I intend to make one final plea to The Great Maker.”
0002000006C6000296596C0,
“You don’t have to do this. You can just stay here. That would put an end to it.”

The Lady chuckles. “Yes, that *would.* Then, more seriously, “But what of my word? My vow? All that would be meaningless if I abandoned The Line right now and gave in to my baser passions. No, I have to go.” The Lady rises to leave. “I have one last battle to fight. And come what may, The Battle of The Line *will* end. I just pray it ends in victory.”

As The Lady walks toward the door the G-mon stops her one last time. “What about the Faf-lady? What happens to her now?”

The Lady glances at the ceiling, afraid to turn around for one last look at the object of her desires. “Yes, what about her. I swore on my blade that she would stand judgment. Whether or not she does depends on her. For you, though, I’ll make a special plea–she *did* feed you, and she didn’t harm you. Perhaps they won’t lynch her for kidnapping you.”

“Thank you.”

The Lady steps through the door into a hallway filled with surprised G-mon-ites. “How the hell did you get in there?” the next-in-line asks.

The Lady smiles warmly. “First, you must remember, this is *our* fantasy. If the Faf-lady can kidnap our sexy security chief, *I* can steal him back. He’s back now, and he’s OKAY!” The last she says to all in The Line.

Cries of “Faf-lady?” and “Kidnapping?” are heard up and down the line.
00020000080A00029D19804,
“Please, ladies, please. The G-mon has asked specifically that she not be harmed. However, *I* just promised him that you wouldn’t lynch her. When she shows up she can stand in judgment before you. Do what you will with her, just please don’t put a rope around her neck–you wouldn’t want to make a liar out of me would you?” The Lady winks humorously.

Evil chuckles and cries of “Sure, Lady, sure!” are heard up and down the line.

Meanwhile, in the G-mon’s quarters, Garibaldi continues to sit on his bed, his head resting just below the Duck Dodger’s poster, staring at the door through which The Lady just left. Making a decision, he rises, walks to the door, then taps lightly–the door opens to reveal the love-struck next-in-line. The G-mon smiles, gives her a special Garibaldi wink, and asks “Next?”

Just another piece of Winky Dink trivia:

Gabe Kaplan (of Welcome Back, Kotter fame) did a riff on Winky Dink on his (I believe only) comedy album years ago. He said his family was too poor to buy the transparancies, so they just drew directly on the screen. Then when the show was over, they kept drawing on the screen. They’d watch The Mouseketeers (Is that spelled right? It looks weird.) and draw big, ahem, breasts (not his word, if I recall correctly) on Annette. His father would come home, sit down in front of the TV and start screaming that they’d been watching that damn Winky Dink again.

The Faf-lady approaches The Line. “Greetings, Lady T! I come to be judged.”
Lady T: “I was wondering if you would come. What took you so long?”
“I would have been here sooner, but on my way here I came unawares upon a spoiler! I was nearly blinded by the sight! I had to pause and tend to my wounds before finding a safe path to the line. I am here now, and ask that I be heard before any decisions on my fate are made.”
Lady T: “Very well. I shall be the judge, and The Line shall be jury (grumbles and hisses from the line). Faf-lady, you are accused of kidnapping and line-jumping. You may state your case.”
“First, the charge of kidnapping. I most certainly did not kidnap Mr. Garibaldi. I freely admit to luring him under false pretense, but once there he could have left at any time. He was not restrained or drugged, and he had both his link and PPG. I, on the other hand, was unarmed (Your Honor will remember that *I* did not draw sword when you appeared). The charge of kidnapping I reject utterly.
“Second is the charge of line-jumping. I fear this charge, for only in the ancient Land of Disney were line-jumpers dealt with a similar degree of severity as I would receive from The Line. However, neither I nor Mr. Garibaldi were in the vicinity of The Line during the incident in question. I believe the traditional term is ‘The attraction was closed’. May I have a clarification on this charge?
00020000071B0002ADB1715,Lady T: “The charge relates to violating the spirit of the line, to ignoring the reason that it was created, for not WAITING YOUR TURN! Now do you understand?”
“Waiting my turn for what? For wink-wink-nudge-nudge?”
The Line: “YES!!!”
“But that was neither my action nor my intent! We were just talking!”
Derisive laughter from Lady T, whe obviously has heard THAT line before. “Oh? And just what were you talking about?”
“Cartoons, m’lady! I am a devotee of 20th and 21st century animation. We discussed the golden era of Warner Bros. cartoons (c. 1940-60), the different styles of the directors, and the regrettable collapse of quality cartooning over the following 25-year period. When you arrived, we had just started on the early-1990’s renaissance of Warner-style animation, like Animaniacs, Captain Simi…”
Lady T: “All right, ALL RIGHT! We will accept that your actions did not violate the line. But what of your intent?”
(Will the Faf-lady be able to answer satisfactorily? Will the members risk losing their place in line to tear her limb from limb? Is someone else building a Gray 32? Stay tuned…)

3. Recite the B5 Mantra (“Ivanova is always right. I will obey Ivanova. Ivanova is God”) until they start to believe you have knowledge of some secret, powerful hidden weapon–and let you go so they can follow you to it.

We have just been informed that The Lady T–the self-proclaimed leader of The Battle of The Line–received a reply this morning from The Great Maker on her final plea. We can only assume from her silence that the news is not good. More on this as reports come in….Subj: JUDGEMENT– NEW INDICTMENTS

Posted on: America Online

” Excuse me, pardon me, … Officer of the court, make way…. damn it let me through!!!” The voice is heard stridently breaking through the din of voices debating the judgement of Fafayin.
Heads turn toward the sound, glimpsing the security cordon attempting to make headway through the crowd that was ONCE a peaceful (if impatient) line.
The Lady T raised her broadsword by the blade, displaying the shining hilt to the masses. As silence falls through the corridors and foyers, her voice rings out “Make way for the officers of the court – they may bear messages and tidings of interest to this issue”.
0002000008710002C3DF86B, As the peacekeepers make their way through the ebbing crowd, a look of tension and alarm is seen to pass on the face of Fafayin. The steel determination of the officers, highlighted by the rolled sheath of documents in the leaders left hand do not bode well for the accused.
As the leader approaches, she turn to face the masses and exclaims “This hearing MUST be postponed, there are new charges to be rendered — and 3 colonies have submitted rendition requests for the suspect… this is NOT the first time she has done this!!!” As a gasp of astonishment ripples through the crowd, The Lady T gathers her courage and asks “PeaceKeeper, I do not question your authority, but what are these additional charges, and what crime did she commit in the colonies.

The leader seems to reach deep within herself for the conviction to address this issue in open forum ….”the truth is the charges are…. false use of the Babcom to place an emergency call, impersonating a law enforcement officer, disrupting the peace, inciting a riot….. But I really can’t tell you anymore. Her Lawyer has requested a gag order.”

As Fafayin’s head rears upin shock, or was that dismay, she is heard to mutter “My Lawyer, I’m gonna kill someone.” The Lady T steps back, obviously shocked ” I was unaware this transgression had elevated to such a degree. Maybe I should talk to her Lawyer about these charges and we could work a deal?”

The Peacekeeper cannot keep a sneer of disgust from her face. “M’Lady, if you wish to deal with his type you may. I always knew there was something about lawyers … but this one…”

The Lady T responds “Come now, all the lawyers on the station are decent folks, and almost all are likeable, why I’ll bet ….” The Peacekeeper interrupts obvious chagrin “Lady T .. Her Lawyer is MORDEN!!!!!”

JMS WARNING — PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE DO NOT READ THIS POST — THE FOLLOWING CONTAINS TEXT THAT *COULD* BE CONSTRUED AS A STORY SUGGESTION, AND I’D *HATE* TO BE THE REASON YOU STOPPED VISITING THE GARIBALDI FOLDER!!!

Gasps of shock are heard through the crowd. “Morden!” “Shadow Minion!” “Kosh Killer!” The crowd is getting restless, and the peacekeepers seem worried.

“Now wait a minute!” The Lady cries over the rising din. “Something’s not right here.”

Sounds of “You got that right!” and “No s… Sherlock!” are heard.

The Lady, desparately trying to think of a way to calm the group, “Please….let’s not turn this into a mob scene. Remember who we’re talking about. Morden would *love* to see us like this! For all we know, this could just be a Shadow plot to turn this group against itself.” Suddenly The Lady gets an idea. “Let’s remember why we’re here! For the G-Mon! We Live For The G-Mon! We Fight For The G-Mon! We LOVE The G-Mon!”

The Lady raises her sword high over her head as cries of “G-Mon! G-Mon! G-Mon!” begin to fill the crowded hallway. The Lady quietly chants an incantation and a blue glow emanates from the blade. The crowds’ cries of “G-Mon!” seem to penetrate the very souls of all there as the blue glow becomes brighter and brighter. Suddenly the peacekeepers begin to fade and fall apart as though the gravity that held them together ceased to exist. Within moments they are gone– nothing left to show they were there except the rolled up sheaf of papers the lead peacekeeper had held but which had fallen to the floor.
00020000077B0002D501775,
The Faf-lady, who had been caught up in the chants with the rest of the group, stands with her jaw slack staring at where the peacekeepers once were. The Lady calmly sheaths her sword and bends to retrieve the papers. The still-shocked Faf-lady asks, “W-what h-happened?”

“Love,” The Lady replies matter-of-factly as she straightens with the papers now in hand. “In the Light of Love they could no longer exist, so they’ve gone to God–which is where you would be if you were one of them. I suspected they were Shadow minions….no self-respecting peacekeeper would have read those charges with a gag order on them. They wanted the crowd to riot.”

“How’d they disappear?”

“They were probably Shadow constructs–a human would have left a body behind.”

“You murdered them?”

“Don’t be silly. You can’t kill something that’s already dead. The Light broke their connection to the Shadows, freeing their souls. Then the stuff that held them dissipated–much the same way a Shadow vessel does when it’s destroyed.” The Lady examines the sheaf of papers. “You know, they were right about the additional charges–false use of the Babcom, impersonating a law enforcement officer, disrupting the peace, inciting a riot–well, maybe not the last. Remember that the Shadows often mix the truth in a little with their lies. And these papers look pretty legal to me. Seems you *have* done this before. Perhaps we should ask our Security Chief to check these things out. But don’t worry, I intend to make sure The Line has it’s way with you before *any* extradition is considered.”

[What NOW? Will Fafayin be able to dig herself out of this hole? Will she even read Sheridan98’s and TheLadyT’s posts before posting Judgment Day (pt 2)? Will she want to kill those two for screwing up a perfectly good story? And what about the spoiler Fafayin saw on her way to The Line?]Subj: Re:Mongoose loves K9

Lady T: “All right, ALL RIGHT! We will accept that your actions did not violate the line. But what of your intent?”
A sudden, strange flash envelopes the area. When it disappears, many members of the Line appear faint and disoriented.
Faf-lady: “What the heck was THAT?”
Lady T: “It must have been a type of time flash. They’ve been a problem, especially since Ambassador Kosh decided to change his encounter suit. We may have just seen some sort of possible future. This raises some interesting questions.”
F: “Surely Your Honor does not suspect me of consorting with Shadows?!?”
Lady T: “The Sword will tell if you lie. Have you had ANY dealings with Morden?”
Faf-lady, her eyes flashing: “Has m’lady seen that cursed Nazgul’s head on a pike lately?”
The Lady T softened, and lowered her sword. “Very well, you have no Shadow influence. What of the other allegations that we saw? Even assuming (for the moment) that you have not done this elsewhere, what of the charges of false use of the Babcom, impersonating a law enforcement officer, and disrupting the peace? Should these charges be added to the indictment?”
0002000008EA0002E4698E4,F: “No, m’lady, for two reasons. First, there is a lack of evidence on these charges. There is no record of any false emergency call (trust me on this one), and I never *said* that I was Zack (although I did do nothing to correct that misinterpretation). Also, there was no disruption of the peace until this trial, and I trust that m’lady will be able to keep everything in control. Second, I respectfully submit that these charges are beyond the scope and jurisdiction of this trial. It is up to Mr. Garibaldi, who obviously has all of the facts and in their proper context, to decide if any of these charges should be placed. By the way, even if there were evidence that I had done this elsewhere (and I swear on the sword that I have not), it is highly unlikely that any extradition would take place, given the current political situation on the station.”
Lady T: “Very well. We will leave the decision regarding additional charges to our highly competent security chief. You may now answer my earlier question: Even if your actions did not violate the Line, what of your intent?”
(Will the Faf-lady’s answer satisfy the Lady T? Will she get her train of thought back before someone decides that she would look better as sliced Shadow luncheon meat? Will the G-monites PLEASE stop posting Z’ha’dum spoilers until the whole country gets a chance to see it? Stay tuned…)Subj: Spoilers

Faf-lady: “I ask this court, why was The Line created? Was it not because of love for Mr. Garibaldi? (Murmers of assent from the Line.) And why do we love him? Not for his appearance alone! (Agreement again.) We do not love Garibaldi because of his eyes, his hands, his butt, his smile, his eyebrows, his chest, his…uh, anyway, that is NOT why we love him!!! We love his personality, his wit, his devotion to the people and things he cares about – all of the aspects that make him our G-mon!”
0002000007950002ED4D78F,Lady T: “Agreed. How does this explain your intent?”
F: “Because, m’lady, it was my intent to serve the spirit of the Line! Those of you on the Line – how many of you are there for one thing only?(Uncomfortable, shifting silence.) How many of you are there to take from Mr. Garibaldi, not to give? The G-mon is a man, not a machine! He has many needs that must be met in order to maintain his G-mon-ness.”
Lady T: “Continue.”
F: “Just because Garibaldi can cook, it doesn’t mean that he wouldn’t like someone else to cook for a change! Just because he will go out of the way for you, it does not mean he would not appreciate an extra effort on your part! Just because he’s a great listener, it doesn’t preclude that, sometimes, he really needs for someone to listen to him! This last item especially! Think of it – there is no one with whom the G-mon can unburden himself anymore. Sinclair left without a proper farewell; Franklin spurns help and withdraws; his right-hand man shot him in the back first chance he got; Zack is too easily manipulated to truly trust; G’Kar has promise, but no sense of humor; and Londo is in league with the Shadows. Even Lennier doesn’t come by anymore. A long time I lurked, observing this, before I resolved to act.”
Lady T: “And what is it you decided to do?”
F: “To help Garibaldi replenish his body and spirit! I brought him to a quiet place, fed him well and engaged him in conversation. This was not a hardship for me, I grant, but it was the unmet needs of the G-mon that brought me there, and helping him meet those needs was my only intent. And, in spite of m’lady’s unscheduled arrival, I daresay that my goal was accomplished.”
Lady T: “I see. Do you wish to add anything?”
F: “Only this, Your Honor. I submit to the court that a well nourished, rested and relaxed G-mon serves not only the G-mon, but the Line as well. Tell me – since his return, has the Line moved?”

The quickest way to find out would be to jump to your favorite search engine and type in either Jerry Doyle or Micheal Garibaldi.

Ladies and gentlemen, we have managed to reestablish contact with our on-scene reporter at The Battle of The Line, Harvey Brenmar. Apparently the space-time continuum that sucked in Mr. Garibaldi is starting to break up; our reporter has told us that he and everyone else on The Line has experienced some kind of “time flash”–our researchers are working on this one. However, he *was* able to tell us that The Lady T, the self-proclaimed leader of The Battle of The Line, intends to make an announcement regarding her reply from The Great Maker on her final plea. More on this as details come in….Subj: Final Judgment (pt 1)

Posted on: America Online

“Well, my dear, you *do* tell a marvelous yarn. I’m even somewhat inclined to believe you. However….”
The Line is interrupted as a love-struck G-mon-ite emerges from the G-mon’s quarters. Yet, before the next-in-line can enter, the G-mon’s door closes. The love-struck G-mon-ite leans against it and takes a deep breath, letting it out slowly in a meaningful sigh. “The G-mon has asked me to let you know he needs a moment. Something about something he needed to do.” Grateful that The Line will move again soon, several Line Holders assist the now weak and dazed G-mon-ite to the end of The Line.
The Lady watches this, concerned as to what her love must do that would keep him from his duties. She smiles lovingly at the Line Holders assisting their friend. She recomposes herself, turns back to the one-to-be-judged, and continues, “…however, as creative as you are, I don’t think you’re out of hot water yet. I will consult with the G-mon before passing sentence.”

Meanwhile, in the G-mon’s quarters, Garibaldi is speaking to Zack in security. “Yeah … Zack. I want you to be on the lookout for a human female, fair complexion, 173 cm, 59 kg, red-brown hair, green eyes, late 30s. Distinguishing characteristics: waist-length, very thick hair and carrying a broadsword.”
00020000082E0003049D828,”Wait a minute, Chief. Isn’t she the one in that Special Report a while back?”
“Yeah, that’s the one. I think she’s going to try to leave the station.”
Zack chuckles, “So you suspect her of terrorist activities? No problem. I’ll issue an alert right away.”
“No! Don’t. She’s no terrorist,” the G-mon says abruptly. “I just want you, *personally,* to keep an eye out for her. I wanna talk to her before she leaves. This is strictly unofficial, Zack. A favor, okay?”
“No problem, chief.”

The Lady turns to Wrngtl, “Where’s Sheridan98?”
“Still working on the duct-work crowd, m’lady.”
“Very well. Hold this woman until I get back.” The Lady walks toward the security chief’s quarters. A frightened next-in-line starts to protest when The Lady stops her, “This is Line business, my dear.” The Lady taps on the G-mons door; it opens and closes quickly, with just enough time for The Lady to enter.

[Will the G-mon back the Faf-lady’s story? Does The Lady T even care now that she’s back in the G-mon’s quarters? And what about The Great Maker’s reply to The Lady’s final plea?

“I’m back, my love.”
“Well it’s about time! Hang on.” Garibaldi taps his link, “Never mind, Zack. I’ve found her.” A quiet “sure, chief” is heard before the G-mon severs the connection. “So, what’s the word from The Great Maker?”
“Oh, Michael. It was horrible!” The Lady breaks into tears as the G-mon rushes to comfort her.

Meanwhile, back on The Line, a dusty Sheridan98 shows up with two even dustier culprits. “About time you got back,” the lead Guardian of the Queue says. “How’d you get them out?”
“It was really wierd, Wrngtl. I was sneaking up on them from behind when there was this flash. When my eyes cleared, these two were pretty dizzy and weak. I just dragged them out.” The very pleased Sheridan98 looks around for her friend. “By the way, where’s Lady T?”
00020000074D00030CC5747,”In the G-mon’s quar….”
“What! Are you NUTS! You LET her in there? Weren’t you LISTENING to me earlier?” The disgusted Guardian-Second dumps her two charges at Wrngtl’s feet and walks off muttering, in sing-song fashion, “I don’t *believe* it….I tried to *warn* them….they weren’t *listening*….they *deserve* it….”

WARNING–THE FOLLOWING TEXT CONTAINS A SPOILER STRAIGHT FROM THE GREAT MAKER HIMSELF. IN MY OPINION, IF HE DIDN’T WANT YOU FOLKS TO KNOW, HE WOULDN’T HAVE TOLD ME (GRIN). SO READ ON…IF YOU DARE….

The Lady sits on the edge of the G-mon’s bed, the sweet sexy security chief beside her helping to dry her tears. “You know, I really have a problem with tears, and you keep doing this to me,” he says in a comforting fashion. The Lady chuckles in spite of herself. “Now, it couldn’t have been all *that* bad. You want to tell me about it?”
“Oh, Michael. I was all set. I knew exactly what I was going to do. I even told him I had everything planned. But,” The Lady turns on the bed to face the G-mon directly, “I have to warn, you, Michael. He sent me a spoiler.”
“A spoiler, huh. So now you know exactly what’s going to happen?”
“Not exactly.” The Lady pulls a piece of paper out of a pocket. Unfolding it, she reads:

“I think that Garibaldi is going to be in enough serious trouble this coming year without adding a romance on top of that. One can only handle so much stress at one time.

jms”

“What the hell does he mean by that?” the G-mon asks.
“I think he’s saying you’re not going to have any time for romance in season 4.”
“No time for romance? There’s *always* time for romance!”
00020000094D0003140C947,”You know, Gina said the same thing when I told her. And I thoroughly agree. But I think The Great Maker either doesn’t realize that, or He’s just trying to torture you. But I can’t believe that. Not Him.”
“You and your worship! I hope you….”

“Run away with me. That’s it. We can leave here right now. I have a planet–it’s a long way away from here, no one will find us. You’ll be safe, Michael. The Great Maker can’t touch you there. We can stop this thing right now! As it stands now, by Monday morning it’ll all be over. Season 4 will have begun in the United States. There’ll be no way of stopping Him. If we leave….”
“Wait a minute. You’re saying that if we leave now, right now, you can stop season 4 from happening? How?”
“The Power of One. Even The Great Maker doesn’t realize the extent of it. I’ve been studying it for years. It CAN be done!”
Garibaldi shakes his head, “No. I can’t.”
The Lady pleads, “But Michael. I don’t know what He’s going to do with you! I have the opportunity to save you. Please, Michael, let me do this.”
“I can’t let you do this. There are too many people out there depending on season 4 happening.”
“But Michael….”
“No! What comes will come. I know that sounds like Susan, and maybe I’ve been hanging around her too long. But I’m going to see this thing through.”
The Lady’s eyes fill with tears, knowing she must leave her love. “The Line will be destroyed by Sunday night. Oh, there might be a few hangers-on, but they’ll soon give up. My love, I must leave you now. But I will always watch over you, and I will always love you.” The Lady rises and draws her broadsword. Holding it by the hilt, blade pointing at her feet, The Lady says a few last words to her beloved: “The captain will be calling you soon. Once that happens, it’s history.” Garibaldi shakes his head, so The Lady lifts her sword upward in final salute. The blade again glows a bright blue, and in a brilliant flash she disappears.Subj: Finale

It seems like you have not seen “The Color of Night,” which in my opinion is Bruce Willis’ finest motion picture. He just gets b——t reviews from the critics. If Joe were to ever write about Garibaldi’s family and whether or not he has siblings, I think Bruce would be a hell of a brother to have…

Mongoose is back from Atlanta Starcon. Someone in the audience asked Michael O’Hare if he would consider doing his own cartoon show, like Jerry Doyle. He asked, “Jerry has his own cartoon show?” Chorus of “yes” and nods, he gets as response. He remarks, “Jerry Doyle **is** a cartoon show!”
Then he asked a question no one really answered: “Does the character look like him?” Pity we did not see his reaction if someone told him in private, just whose voice the Doyle-Mon provides.

I could not believe Sheridan was so mad at Delennnad treated her that way, he could have had a more dignified conversation with her than that, especially if he really does love her. The most frustrating part was, of course, Michael’s imprisonment in the shadow-ship. I just can’t get over what an incredible writer JMS is. I am more attached to this show than to any other show ever. I am not the soap-opera or talk-show type and therefore find very little on the tube to satisfy the SCI-FI need. However B5 has cured this problem : )

Just to share something else… I dressed as Delenn for Halloween and I was truly amazed at the number of people who knew who I was supposed to be. (My costume looked more like something Lady T would wear, long and flowing teal and purple Ann Bolenn style dress with a homemade headpiece… Yes I’m extremely proud of how well it turned out — It’s the first time that I really felt a costume actually worked and I really enjoyed the day! )

Even though it seems as if everything is going to pieces on and around the station, I’m sure that JMS has managed to come up with a solution for the “Who’s in charge ” question we are all beginning to ask. The idea that everyone is finding a reason or a way to be out looking for someone else rather than staying at their posts is just setting the station up for an attack by the shadows…. besides, why would you leave the center of operations without a strong leadership at a time like this? Delenn is Ranger One, maybe this is the way she will show she is the One.

Why I wish the Garibaldi/Captain Simian-Mon were on the ballot….

10. There would be no sexual scandals in the closet (let’s leave the hall out of it).

9. The only Dole our Mon has any use for, is a banana.

8. Hilary could not buy his smile, let alone run the security business.

7. Garibaldi is richer than Ross Perot, because he’ll bet his last credit to show faith in a friend.

6. No scandal about being a draft dodger, “Duck Dodgers” is the G-Mon style.

5. G-Mon and the Simian both are men of few words and much understanding.

4. With Ivanova as VP, G-Mon as Pres will never be wrong.

3. G-Mon admits to being an alcoholic, the tabloids would generate enough free publicity to get him elected Emperor of Centauri Prime.

2. What a campaign slogan: “Garibaldi: He Stays Out of Gray Sectors.”

1. The monkey he makes of himself has true leadership quality.

OK. I’ve posted elsewhere that I think that when, in Z’ha’dum, Justin tells Sheridan they will remove his support, the support he’s talking about is Garibaldi. I think the scene between Sheridan and Garibaldi when Sheridan talks about how he’s come to depend on Michael was set-up for that. The fact that JD and BB share the key line of the S4 opener (The year is 2261 (JD) The place is Babylon 5 (BB)) and that it’s hard to distinguish that it’s two voices and not one, to me says this season is going to give us some real focus on these two men and their relationship. Pure speculation here, and perhaps colored by having been in The Line for too long, but I think our man is going to get the kind of central role he deserves this year. Call me a cockeyed optimist. Just my 2 credits.

Nice thought, but JMS said at Necronomicon that he just had everyone read the entire opener, then picked the best voices for each spot. But then again, the more I think about it, why *did* he pick such short spots for those two? Annnd, why the very end…in essence, the most important lines? Hmmmmm.

He was seen (and heard) in the opening credits, but he wasn’t in the ep. :(

I remember reading somewhere that the boards are posted in the studio so the actors can read them.

Mr. Doyle, if you are following the adventures of “The Line”, please pop-up ( no pun intended!) and say hello. It would give us a BIG morale boost. If Andrea could also say hello, all the better.

Hope a ride…..

When a BIG shadow ship starts to cover you and you say “what the h***?” I don’t think
hitching a ride comes to mind.

But it would be a cool song as Garibaldi rides off in the Shadow ship.

I agree with Carolyn that the Season opening may say a lot about what’s going to happen.
I was listening to it again this morning and she’s right that you barely can split the voices
when you get to “the year is….”

I agree this will be Garibaldi’s year….just maybe what we had hoped for……

Lady T:

The chess board on our side looks like this:

Lady T, Mongoose, Roz and others:

The chess board on our side looks like this in my mind:
Rooks: B4 & B5
Knights: Marcus & Garibaldi
Bishops: Sinclair & Delenn
King: Sheridan
Queen: Ivanova
Head Pawn: G’Kar
Rest of the non-aligned worlds and Narn are the real pawns
000200000DB300039330DAD,
On the other side: Head Pawn: Londo
Pawns: Those aligned with the Shadows
Rooks: Centauri Prime now/Narn in the past (remember G’Kar said that the set up a
base much like the one they are setting up on Centauri Prime during the last war)
Knights: Anna & Morden
The rest we do not know……..but isn’t interesting that as Anna leaves Mr. G disappears.

Getting into Avalon…Michael York’s character was named David.
The “ship is the sword the sword a ship”…..When John assumed joint command with
Delenn he got the White Star. To come full circle she has to remove the burden from
him to free him….take responsibility. She has to take back command.
In the Arthur legend, three queens and nine sisters take him on a barge. Three women (Lyta, Delenn, Ivanova) barge (a White Star). Nine sisters – I am still working on but it could be the number of the crew on the bridge of the White Star…haven’t counted or the Grey Council. But if as Marcus says he is Lancelot…then Guinevere has to be Ivanova….I can’t see Marcus loving Delenn…..willing to die for her but not love her…..Ivanova’s more than expected reaction to Sheridan’s possible death sets her up
as the Queen…..

Did I miss anything other than making Vir and Lennier just named pawns……

Interesting thought, though Marcus equated himself with Galahad, “him being sinless and all”, but that would mean no bonfires. 😉 (Check the Ivanova board for this running thread).

Yes. Lennier is also Lancelot to Delenn’s Guinevere. And I’d also say that Lyta makes a good Morgana (as well as a good rook, knight, and bishop).

Thanks for the update on the credits– I forgot to tape HotW on Sunday so I have to wait for the repeat on Thursday night and I was hoping I was wrong about the opening sequence. I appreciate the help in clearing that up : )

Read in this week’s Zocalo some comments made by Jeff Conaway re: his Zack Allen character and Garibaldi. Apparently in the 7th episode this season, there’s a scene between Zack and Garibaldi right before Garibaldi leaves the station (to where, or what will happen to him, Conaway wouldn’t say). Conaway said he cried the first time he read this scene. Afterwards, Zack will be promoted to head of station security, and will get some more scenes with the principals in the cast. He said he has no idea how long his tenure as head of security will last, so he plans to make the most of it. Conaway also mentioned the chemistry between him and Doyle, and mentioned how family-like the atmosphere on the show was. The current issue should be archived soon on the Zocalo website.
