Re: the cartoon...I'm a big WB cartoon fan, and knew that one
very well, and there were two places where it would've fit with the
story; the other one, which I almost used, was when you see two Daffy's
arguing with each other.

Re: the CGI...we've been fairly conventional with the CGI in
recent seasons, we're trying to get a bit more adventurous.

The Lise flashback material is all exactly as was filmed for
"Babylon Squared." I think we used a few more pieces of the original
footage, but it was all stet.

Re: Delenn...these episodes happen close to one another in
time, so you have to allow travel time for her to get to Minbar.
