Minbari Mondays (B5:s4e16) “Exercise of Vital Powers” Against The “Other”

So, Garibaldi, how do you decide what your new employer’s agenda is, and whether he is really telling you the whole truth?

Edgars claims that Clark needs to be stopped,

“but not by military action.”

But how else could he be ethically and transparently stopped, rich guy?

We know from previous episodes that Garibaldi is a man of conscience.

C’mon, Garibaldi, where is your conscience now, and your loyalty to someone whom “you have to know that” they are going to hurt him, not get him “the help” that they claim to think “he needs” -what happened with that understanding you had with and about Mars, dude?

Well, no Vorlon was seen in this episode, but their three-edged sword was: Sheridan’s truth vs. Garibaldi/Edgars’ truth, and The Truth???

Speaking of truth, the Voice of the Resistance continues: s4e16VoResistance

Neatnik focuses his review of this episode on the excellent issue of how one reads The Bible.  Back to that 3-edged sword…

Last Monday’s review was s4e15: Minbari Mondays (B5:s4e15) “No Surrender, No Retreat” and Another Lesson in Practical Empathy ,


Next Minbari Monday will review: s4e17: Minbari Mondays (B5:s4e17) “The Face of The Enemy”: Trust vs. Differences

Nih sakh sh’lekk, sleem wa. I come in peace, I am your friend.

Action Prompts:

1.)  Share your thoughts on how we Human Beings might start to build a more fully inclusive society for all of us, and how this episode of Babylon 5 could help that process.

2.) Write a book, story, post or tweet that uses these thoughts.

  1. Just when it felt like the Vorlon/Shadow war finally coming to an end would make the Babylon 5 universe a better place, new conflicts arise to put our heroes’ strengths to an even greater test.
