The roller coaster to the end of season 2 continues in a big way this episode. It turns out there’s a wolf in sheep’s clothing close to the command staff. A favorite character we haven’t seen in a very long time comes back. Oh, and it turns out that even the Minbari cannot resist a good gossip column. Delenn even has an excuse.
We also learn a lot about why Susan has such an issue with telepaths. As everything else in Babylon 5, there’s more than you think.
This episode would have been a lot different if the original cast from the pilot were still around. Jim and Raul talk about that, as well.
In our second Oz Fest interview by Jim, we bring you Troy Rutter. If you’ve ever been to the Lurker’s Guide, used the Babylon 5 Usenet feeds, visited the official Babylon 5 web page or participated in the ICQ or AOL Babylon 5 activities, then you have experienced Troy’s work even if you didn’t know it. This is a wonderful geek-fest and I’m quite jealous of Jim on this interview. Troy is a true pioneer of what we call “social media” today.
Once again, this is an interview in a somewhat noisy background – typical of a convention. Trust me, though, you will enjoy this!
