Welcome to Show #27!
Tim and Summer dive deep into episode discussion again with “A Voice in the Wilderness” parts 1 and 2.
In “A Voice in the Wilderness”, the station becomes threatened by unforseen violent seismic activity on Episilon 3, the planet below that everyone thought was dead.
After several expeditions prove that there’s highly advanced technology far below the surface, the command staff scrambles to discover if the threat to the station is insurmountable or not, before it’s too late.
The violence on Mars escalates into open violence, and the lack of news sends Garibaldi into a frenzy to find out if the lost love of his life is still alive and safe.
Delenn’s old mentor shows up on the station, having lost his purpose for living, and all three storylines collide and form a good story that’s enjoyable despite some of the teasers and danglers that didn’t make sense.

Listener Feedback: Tim, Summer and Jeff address a few listener emails and comments: Tim reads an email from Edmund notes how the best parts of the series fit together like a jigsaw puzzle; 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, Jonathan in California comments on how maybe the uneven episodes during Season 1 were because they weren’t written by the same person, or by someone with a different interpretation of the source vision; a comment on Garibaldi’s motorcycle quest being necessary to show us a more human side of the character; Jonathan in California on the fates of Babylon Stations 1, 2 and 3. Plus a big shoutout to Jim for taking the Vorlon to a Dodgers game!
