Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!

The babylon project was our last, best hope for peace

    they are a pretty interesting race

    the main representative of the centauri is one of the best acted characters in the show

    at first you like him, but towards the middle he degenerates more and more even though he's fascinatingly conflicted

    when Babylon 5 first aired, i didn't give it much attention, cause it didn't "look real" compared to Star Trek (yeah, i know)

    then i actually watched B5. the eventual bromance between G'kar and Londo was worth it alone.

    oh it gets better.

    without spoiling anything for you, let's just say their relationship is complex as fuck. i was pretty sad when Andreas Katsulas passed away. he was a really good actor, and also played a few roles on TNG, including everyone's favorite Romulan bastard.

    also, Ivanova is fucking awesome:

    I watched this back when it was on broadcast television back-to-back with DS9, loved them both. DS9 was easier to follow non-consecutively, though. I watched them with my dad late at night, it was so much fun.

    Well, it wasn't very good.

    It was a little bit more watchable in the order JMS suggested you watch it in, which pretty much ignored the existence of the first episode completely.

    Though, apparently the scripts for the episodes immediately after the cancellation were amazing.

    Seriously, the best character ever. (I've been studying him for seven days. I had the computer analyze it!)

    Sad, but true.

    P.S. You can tell what season of B5 you're watching just by Garibaldi's hairline, or lack thereof.

    P.P.S. Fandy, should we ever meet, I will buy you a cup of hot jala for making this thread.

    Saw a couple clips from "Legend of the Rangers".

    I'm sorry, B5 could be the best show ever, but that soured me more or less for good.

    Not because of the show, exactly, but my mind won't be able to see anything related without flashbacks.

    MY DEEEAAR MEEESTER GARIBALDI!

    I love this show so much. Season five isn't that great, i'll admit. except for sleeping in light. that made me tear up at the end :(

    which doesn't really justify HMV selling the dvd for season five at SEVENTY FUCKING POUNDS. especially after flogging seasons 1-4 at anything from 5 to 13 pounds. bastards.

    Londo is appealing due to the fact that he tries to be the nice guy and he tries to get along with the Naarn and build a bridge of peace, its just that the universe won't let him. He tries to get out but they keep pulling him back in.

    There's only one "a" in 49XoV.jpg.
    But, yes, that's part of why Londo is so tragically great.

    has anyone played the babylon project? I'm tempted, but it's based on the freespace 2 engine (it's basically a standalone mod for freespace 2 if I'm understanding it correctly) and FS2 was something I could never get into. So I'm dubious.

    I played it. I sucked because I had never played a freespace game before in addition to the fact that I was playing on a laptop. However, learning that I could get to the Zahadoom beacon in hyperspace was an interesting feature.

    I've Found Her is a fan-made space combat flight simulator based on Babylon 5. It has been in development for more than a decade at this point, but a prequel campaign was released in 2003 which was good fun.
