Getting this thread back on topic, lord17c the one big difference between Babylon 5 and Star Wars is the difference in storyline. A lot of questions and complaints have come up in the group of people I game with as to how the Star Wars storyline works, the holes in it that have come up. However in the Babylon 5 storyline there haven't been as many questions come up. Basically think of B5 as a live action anime series, very coherent storyline, all of it makes sense (or at least is less confusing) to people.
If you want to know anything else go ahead and PM me and I'll do my best to answer ya.
