Minbari Mondays (B5:s4e18): “Intersections in Real Time” and Human Rights

This episode was made in consultation with Amnesty International (yes, just as the famous Captain Picard episode of Star Trek: TNG).

In this case I can understand how Delenn would be the vision that his mind brings up for strength and comfort through the ordeal.

Neatnik’s review of this episode is excellent.


Last Monday’s review was s4e17: Minbari Mondays (B5:s4e17) “The Face of The Enemy”: Trust vs. Differences ,


Next Minbari Monday will review: s4e19: Minbari Mondays (B5:s4e19) “Between the Darkness and the Light” and Serving Humanity


Nih sakh sh’lekk, sleem wa.

I come in peace, I am your friend.

  1. The portrayal of torture in science fiction had by the 90s become all the more realized. Star Trek and Babylon 5, even in a futuristic sense, would help us understand how important it is to finally abolish such inhuman methods from our systems in today’s world.
