Minbari Mondays, A Voice in the Wilderness, Pt. 2, and Service

This is the continuation of our fictional letter (reviewing each film and episode of Babylon 5) that I receive each week from Ranger Mayann.

Here is her 21st report:

Nih sakh sh’lekk, sleem wa, Greetings from Tuzanor:

In this report, in your Earth year 2258, it is nearing the end of the second year of operation of the station. Due to the nature of events and technologies in this incident, the Anla’Shok has forbidden me to write a letter this week, as last week.

From the city of  Tuzanor, on Minbar

Earth year 2278,

Anla’Shok Mayann

  Addendum to Ranger Mayann’s report, by Shira: This episode has some great Ivanova quotes:

it’s a good thing I’m Russian: We’re used to hopeless situations.”

and then there is that “worst case of testosterone poisoning” she has ever seen!

Then there is an older Minbari, ready to die but wanting to live to serve, saying that:

“There is no higher purpose than to live for others and if necessary, to die for others.”

“Let my life have meaning.”

That was part of Ranger Mayann’s letter on the history of the Babylon Project.  

See Ranger Mayann’s report from previous weeks here.

Stayed on Freedom’s Call
(free copies at: https://archive.org/details/StayedOnF…)
includes two ‘imagination-rich’ walking tours, with songs, of Washington, DC. New interviews and research are woven into stories of old struggles shared by both the Jewish and African-American communities in the capital city.

Shared histories are explored from a new perspective of cultural parallels and parallel institution-building which brought the two communities together culturally and historically.
