Minbari Mondays: “Conflicts of Interest” (B5:s4e12), and Lifting Every Voice


Tears of joy right at the start of this episode!

and then,

Garibaldi now has a clear conflicting issue from his past, while B5’s Voice of the Resistance  s4e16VoResistance   needs power from a source whose perception may be in conflict, depending on your point of view: Epsilon 3.

The captain’s words ring loudest and true:

“If we do nothing, their blood will be on our hands.”

History Matters.

                     Truth Matters.

                                             Action Matters.
