Actually, the CGI is the Epsilon model. AOG's Sotf has th following description of the Epsilon: though the Theta variant is the most common, the Epsilon is the one most people think about when they imagine a Hyperion.... The ship has two heavy and one medium pulse cannon forwards, two lasers forward...

[ The Drazi, Brakiri, Pak’ma’ra and their fellows hold a fascination for Babylon 5 aficionados yet many people cannot even identify one without resorting to guesswork. ] Apart from the big 3 above there are a few others I can put a face to Abbai (the ones with the fins on their heads), Hyach( the d...

I'm guessing that the screen will be scheduled shortly after the Compainion and Advanced Space Combat Set, or possibly after the companion with the ASCS having a seperate reference card, ala GW games

I think that in the B5 timeline, we (the UK) are supposed to have left the Union when it started getting closer to a nation state. Spain was an original member of the European Union. The EU only came into being after the Maastrichit (definately wrong sp) Treaty of 1992. Before that it was the Eurpoe...

I'm pretty sure I've seen sources saying that Mars at least sent out messages in the dying days (of the E-M war) saying 'We're not part of Earth, please don't hurt us)

Whether the Minbari actually listened to them is another matter.

Just a point IIRC, the Minbari didn't wipe out the Garmak, they stopped just short of it (once they'd wiped out the space-going capacity of the Garmak) and the Centauri soon moved in.

The scene is from before the start of the war, so they're not all mad with grief.

Lodo's response is "They have a Warrior caste, it is not the same" (or something similar)

The Icarus is definetly not the same class as the Cortez. The Icarus is a small, private reaserach ship about the size of a Commercial freighter (I think it's stats are in tCoS), whilst the Cortez is one of the biggest vessels in known space, at about three miles long.[/i]

I'd halve the number of Omega Gammas and Explorers, and drop the Poseidons to 1(4). 1 in ten sounds good for a command ship, whilst explorers and poseidons are a big investments

Actually Elizar, the longer lifespan/higher quality of life improvments avaliable to the Minbari is likely to be a limiting facor on the population, if human population patterns are compared. The populations of North America and Europe are only slowly expanding now (or, in the case of some countries...

Remember that the national feats aren't all supposed to fit to every member of the nation, they're just things that there is more of in the country.

How about this interpretation;

The national restrictions show who can take these feats freely. Others can take them, but they have to ask for gm permission and give reasons for them
