Minbari Mondays, Revelations, and Remembering Names

There is an interruption in the sending of our fictional letter (reviewing each film and episode of Babylon 5) that I receive each week from Ranger Mayann.

Here is my replacement of what would have been her 2nd report of the third year of operation of the station:

This episode is incredible.   For the first time, old enemies must become allies, as G’Kar tries to tell the others what danger awaits them all, and begins to become the Cassandra of the galaxy:

Weep for the future, Na’Toth. Weep for us all.”

And not only for the quote of a famous Yeats poem:

Things fall apart; the center cannot hold;

Mere anarchy is loosed upon the world,

The blood-dimmed tide is loosed, and everywhere

The ceremony of innocence is drowned;

Many thanks to Neatnik for this quote, and his much better review of this episode.

Last week, and next week:  Ranger Mayann’s letter on the history of the Babylon Project.

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.

-one can read Stayed on Freedom’s Call for free.  Please leave a review, if you can make a bit of time, on the GoodReads page.

  1. I have a feeling G’Kar would be useful in the U.S.these days if he could find anyone upon whom to pronounce his ‘weep for the Future’ that was willing to listen. I decided last night that the Annunaki are here and are settled as wealthy men, like Charles Koch. They’re now waiting for the human race to have destroyed themselves rather than going to war with them so he have a peaceful takeover.
    Huge Hugs
