Kosh often tended to get revised in-house to make him consistent, mysterious
rather than a fortune-cookie, which often happened.

Writers got variously verbal notes, a page or two, or in some cases, several
pages of notes/outline material on an episode. But a script is very long, so
they had to come up with a lot to fill in the gaps.
