Welcome to Show #25!
Tim and Summer dive deep into episode discussion again with “Eyes” and “Legacies”.
In “Eyes”, the political backlash from some of Commander Sinclair’s command decisions come home to roost, in the form of an official Internal Investigation. Colonel Ari Ben-Zayn intends to probe the current command staff to test their loyalties and their protocols as a means to put himself in command of the station, but his vindictive power play backfires, thanks to the integrity of his reluctant assistant, a Psi Corps operative named Harriman Gray. And yes, we talk about the Kawasaki Ninja. Za ba ga bee.

In “Legacies”, the discovery of a burgeoning new telepath puts Ivanova and Talia at odds with each other, and relations between Earth and the Minbari become strained when the body of a respected Minbari Warleader disappears while on a stopover at the station. We see in Susan and Talia how deeply ingrained their passions for Psi Corps run, in the lengths they’ll try to go in order to get the new telepath’s choice to fall their way, and we meet Neroon for the first time.

Listener Feedback: Tim, Summer and Jeff address more than a few listener emails and comments that want to know all about The Vorlon: Tim reads emails from Shelly asking how Jeff made Kosh glide so well; Edmund has comments on negotiation tactics used in “By Any Means Necessary”; Jack is curious about Vorlon motivations to get involved with humans; and Jim wants to know what Vorlons eat.
For voicemails, James in Dallas liked how B5 showed pieces of the characters lives beyond the usual scope, and anticipates us discussing some of his favorite episodes; Chris in Indianapolis lets us know that the podcast is mentioned in Volume 8 of JMS’s Script Books.
