Mike: we're not going to see a lot of Sinclair in the past,
only what is
necessary to understand the present...and there are going to be
transformations, but I prefer to see my transformations take place
present, pointing toward the future, than in flashback.
The difference, I suppose, is that in many shows, characters
Point X in a series at the very beginning, and stay there for the
and we are sometimes shown what made them that way. In B5, what
for is to take a certain set of characters, and move them all
substantive changes in their lives, their characters, their beliefs
allegiances. Just about everyone on B5 is running to, or away from
I don't want that simply as backdrop, I want that something to
*catch up with
them*. That, to me, is where the fun starts.
