  1. Vir Cotto – hero with lance? Just a thought.

  2. I loved Vir. His waving cheerfully at Morden, anticipating his head on a pike, is one of my favorite parts.

    It’s been quite a shame to see death take an early toll on so many of B5’s crew. I heard only recently that Michael O’Hare was struggling with schizophrenia, and that led to Sinclair’s character being written out (when clearly it was he who was to have been past, present and future commander of the various Babylons..His wife who was on Z’ha’dum, etc.) His passing, and Richard Biggs, Jerry Doyle, Andreas Katsulas, all very young. It’s all very sad.

    Even though JMS is clearly very liberal (and this show was one of the first to push the televised lesbian agenda) he saw many truths that are relevant to us today.

    But the biggest truth of all from that show, that we, humanity, will keep reaching, and that our faith will survive this current civilization, stays with me daily.

    Why else did the Lord give us such a giant universe if not to bring the truth of Christ to all corners of it?

  3. Loved Furst as Vir. The fact that his story arc disproved “Nice Guys Finish Last” was one of the many things I liked about him. May Stephen Furst rest in peace.
