At least that is how my last girlfriend (almost finished her study of astro-physics) explained it to me. I think we're also on to a Level Level Level discussion here :) Well, nearly. Nova means "new" and Nova stars were seen to be the "new" stars that brightened at semi or actually regular interval...

Basically thrill seekers :) A whole race of Mongoose like furry thrill seekers. Their doctrine is fighter heavy, more so than the EA. The name and background came from the show or the Sierra CD rom, not entirely sure which, and AoG interpolated it somewhat into the fleet listings. The RPG's League s...

A ranger operating away from high command finds a Minbari working for the Shadows. His only options are to kill him, or let him escape. Ranger kills him. Do you think he is going to buy advertising space in Minbari Daily with a big banner saying I Minabari ranger have killed a minbari from warrior ...

Re: Whitestars and Victory Ships

I don't think that is necessarily the case, as a Whitestar is not the end all be all of ship building design. It is not something that shows up alone in a system and really makes bad guys think about what they are doing. The Victory can do that. Its just like why we have different classifications o...

Humans, on the other hand, were regularly seen doing Ranger missions throughout the series, from season 2 onwards, meaning there's plenty of scope for human Rangers in the series timeline. But I think the point is that they probably were something else before becoming a Ranger (which various bits o...

Oh, I do remember what she was working on. My point was that Sinclair said she _should_ be an old woman, and not "She can't be a Dilgar at all, she's too young". Meaning that it's technically possible for an older Dilgar to still be alive There was no denying that she was Dilgar though - which was ...

The biggest, single thing that sucks about the Rangers supplement is the history sucks and is at almost total odds with show continuity in what it shows, taking the approach that if you say that people don't talk about it then that's okay :roll: The next thing that really offended me (as a B5 Wars v...

I'd expect there to be more Dilgar out there based on Jha'Dur's survival - though the Windswords only sheltered her as far as Delenn found out. It wouldn't take much to recruit them to the Shadow cause, but I suspect that the Shadows would have very little to do with them as they were a "failed" rac...

A few things... First the Nova question. It is actually rather implausible that Omelos went nova judging from the in-game information - after all, the system is still in the jumpgate network, and that means the jumpgate and beacon have survived the stallar event that wiped out rhe Dilgar. What's mo...

It has much greater value as a symbol and a museum than as scrap metal.
But not to the EA ;)

I do think the Shadow-souled Minbari could be a good enemy in a PC campaign (so long as the players haven't read the books). Make the PCs think the Minbari are behind the bad stuff: raiding, piracy, warmongering etc; only to have them find out about the Shadow-souled (who the real Minbari are keepi...

in 'Soul Hunter'. If he met Delenn when he became commander of B5, that would make his stint almost three years. Close enough. Though officially, Sinclair ran it longer as Sheriden was a deserter after his first 18 months in the position ;) You think there is a good chance that the Shadows were a p...

Except the shadows were dormant at the time. in my ranger book it said that there was a shadow ship watching the battle of the line The Ranger book says many things... It's mostly poo though :( Seriously, along with the Minbari Fact Book, it's one of the poorest supplements that Mongoose allowed out.

Actually the Dilgar war can be used to prove either races' point. The Shadows can say that conflict makes race's better. The Vorlons can say only through cooperation and alliances will destruction be stopped. But to the Shadow point of view, the conflict didn't weed out enough evolutionary inferior...
