No, that's a new shot (Claudia at the window). She was shot for
that episode for that voice-over...we just changed one line. The basic
thrust was that she was going to take some time to *decide* whether to
take on B5, or to take on a Warlock class destroyer. So we just went
with the decision.

Thanks...it's a good resolution to one thread, while setting up
what's still to come.

"I'd just like to know why this info was important enough to pass
along to the ambassador of minbar... :)"

Because Lennier is quite familiar with the concept of unrequited
love, and because hope burns eternal.

Which is probably the most damnable part of unrequited love.

Minbari can live to about 120, with some rare exceptions going
beyond that.

"I wonder if, knowing she was to in command of B5 for the 5th season,
made her overconfident in negotiations, thinking her character wasn't
expendable."

jms hums quietly to himself, looking around the room, saying
nothing

"it came down to contractual language vs personal assurances (thats as
short a summation as I've ever seen of this :) )... and CC / agent
were more concerned with the former, and jms thought the latter should
be adequate"

It was also contractual language on other sides, since giving
what was asked for would've violated our contracts with every other
member of our cast, and we couldn't do that.

Funny thing is, while re-editing the pilot this afternoon, there
was Sinclair saying, "Babylon 5 is more important than any of her crew,
am I CLEAR?"

"Will TNT be promoting the actors who did not survive the entire 5
year arc in their ads? WIll they be involved in any active TNT or
Babylonian promotions?"

Dunno...will be getting a clearer view of this in the coming
weeks.

Things can sometimes be black and white without being right or
wrong. If I say a thing is hot and dry and you say it is wet and cold,
those are bipolar distinctions; neither is morally right nor wrong, but
there is a very definite and demonstrable difference.

"I'm not sure in this case that it was necessarily a "morally" right
or wrong position on either side"

I'm back and forth, but on balance, yeah, I agree with that.
