Babylon 5 would have episodes with names like "The Annexation of Crucial Demarcators" and the plot would be about how G'kar can't find a date for prom.

Every now and then I remember that there once was a big rivalry between Babylon 5 and Deep Space Nine fans.

I wish they had realized the embarrassment of riches laid out before them. TWO ongoing, serial space station dramas with political intrigue!?!?! Today, we don't have any!

If you reply to this with any kind of "actually" stance on either side, I am blocking you. You're out of your mind if you think I'm going to spend a second of my precious life relitigating 30-year-old message board wars.

I've been thinking a lot about Babylon 5 episode names lately. I know it's first a scriptural reference but "And the Rock Cried Out, No Hiding Place" is such a great title and the rare instance where the title has concrete meaning inside the episode itself.

along with "Looking for par'Mach in All the Wrong Places" we could've had "Looking for G'Kar in all the wrong places".

@srol it's well know JMS pitched B5 to CBS before Warner bros picked it up. CBS proceeded to rip off his idea by pitching it as a new star trek series but not as well written.

@srol I've heard that J. Michael Straczynski is doing a reboot, currently in production. It's not going to be a continuation or the same story and characters, so we'll have to wait and see if it's good. I sure hope so!

@srol Penguicon actually still has a scheduled one hour slot to debate the relative merits of DS9 and B5.

@Azure Makes sense, this whole argument's just a ploy to keep Big Con and Big Usenet in business.

@srol One of the best death scenes in television. Good riddance Lord Refa.

@srol And yet we'd learn something valuable watching him find that prom date xD
