But the Pak'Ma'Ra use Drazi ships so they must sell them, and one would think the Narn are in desperate need of new ships so perhaps they bought some from the Drazi...

Well whether hew meant that they could penetrate it would he still said that the B5 had old sensors, and we know for a fact that they can't see through stealth (all other sources)... And in fact would there be any point in making that statement if their new sensors were no better... Plus I wasn't sa...

They still hadn't broken it after that. They were very surprised that they could get a lock on the Trigati, in fact thats how they knew it had stealth switched off. Actually Sheridan mentions that B5 has E-M war vintage sensors and thats why they shouldn't be able to lock onto the Trigati if it did...

But maybe the other races copied the Centauri... :)

(Except the Minbari and Vorlons but since they had little contact with anyone...)

Well if the G'Quan is anything to go by you don't actually need a turret to have a wide fire arc, even when you apparently have long linear barrel-like tubes behind the weapon mounts (which are of course unnecessary for a laser weapon...) :D

I think you've got the traits for the Heavy Laser and Mag Gun mixed up on the Ka'Toc.

Well the Vorlons are several million years more advanced than most of the rest of the fleets so you would perhaps expect that they would be somewhat more powerful... I mean how well do you expect cave men with stone spears and clubs to stand up to a modern army? And that isn't as long a time gap... ...

Well true... The more I think about it the Drakh-Shadow tech thing was probably from a fan-created B5wars scenario but I still think its an interesting idea. The Drakh would have a much greater understanding of Shadow tech because: (a) They've been working with it for much longer. and (b) when they ...

I still don't see it happening for some time yet, in many ways these ships are still experimental, as noted in the description of the Marathon many of its systems were developed in facilities now under quarantine on Earth, and its computer thingy doesn't work right. I think they are more likely to l...

Well in the series I didn't see that happening, in a Call to Arms and Crusade the most common EA ship seen is the Omega. We see only one Warlock in Crusade and several Omegas. In game as they are both Armageddon level I don't see them appearing any more often than the Omega does. Of course the Marat...

Its not that it fired at an angle but it raked across the target perpendicular to the Agamemnon's course, therefore it must have some movement as the obviously don't turn the ship just to achieve that.

But what if the terrorists were actually in the hospital, will sending the grunts cause any less damage and kill any less civilians if the terrorists are using them as human shields? Not if using normal urban combat tactics they won't... And the fact is that the terrorists are more likely to be in t...

Except they are obviously not replacing the Omega, considering the number of Omega's which made up the Earth fleet in A Call to Arms the movie, and which appeared in the series Crusade. I don't think the EA would just throw out such a large number of perfectly servicible ships. From appearences the ...

Considering that these are now in different Fleet lists. I know exactly when I take an Omega over a Marathon, when playing the 3rd Age fleet where I can't have a Marathon... And since the Orestes can't be taken with either of the other two anyway that's a bit of a moot point (as to whether its actua...
