I did read somewhere that some Shadow Scouts were crewed by Drakh............ :? Do the Vorlons have servitor races? (apart from the Minbari :wink: ) Nothing that I've seen would indicate that, though I wouldn't discount the possibility. Servitor race crewed vessels (say that fast!) would get fewer...

His actual name is Ulkesh. It is in one of the novels. He was the Vorlon ambassador on Minbar. You see him there in the episode where Sinclar leaves Minbar to go back in time to B4 "War without End" I think. Tzarevitch. And indeed he and Kosh appear to accompany "Valen" in his first meeting with th...

Two possible problems I see... 1. Such a vessel would draw way to much attention to the Raider group (not something you want generally) and they would be hunted down mercilessly. I seem to remember a B5wars campaign where a raider group were trying to escape with a set of derelict Hyperions whilst t...

I dont think the Minbari would particularly take the conquering worlds exterminating perhapes but not enslavement. At the first sign of Guerrilla warfare the warrior cast would go meh shall be kill them all? Well Londo's description of the war in ItB and some of the shots in there suggest the possi...

The main accounts I have read about the E-M war (which is admittedly a fictional conflict, and thus can really be interpreted as you want really...) suggest that the Minbari didn't generally attack civilian targets initially they just knocked out the military stuff and then moved on (which is how th...

A mentioned the Battle of the Line was intended to delay the Minbari whilst as much of the civilian population as possible escaped, blowing up the jumpgate would have actually removed the civilians escape route... There is no evidence to suggest that any of the races have civilian ships equipped wit...

Just as an aside on the whole Narn selling lasers thing, acording to B5 Wars (yeah yeah, go ahead and give me the usual 'ACTA is not B5Wars' lecture, but I'll still go with B5Wars fluff any day for its JMS sanctioned cannoney goodness ;)) the Narns didnt sell EA lasers, they just sold them BETTER l...

That ship design originated in the defunct Sierra Babylon 5 flight sim, which i believe was set during the Dilgar War. I have got some pics of the fighter which went with it as well as Yolu, pak'ma'ra and Hurr ships they designed as well, however rather than i upload all of those i suggest just look...

I never really bought the whole Narn-sell-EA-lasers thing. I mean we have lasers now and we couldn't work out how to build a massive laser cannon-o-doom in the next two hundred years and had to wait for a bunch of skin-head reptiles (who learnt how from a bunch of fanheaded imperialists) to show us ...

well it is a scout variant, based on a shot from (i think) Into the Fire where a scout it shown firing a beam rather than its normal pulses.

The 3 ships encountering the Minbari certainly didnt fire any laser. Could be due to some reasons other than not having them onboard though... They didn't but there are shots of Nova's firing lasers later on (just barely visible before they get blown away). Admittedly those are the same shots that ...

Dunnon about the fighter complements but the old-style Minbari curisers were Tinashi's.
