Damned things won;t let me post the actual reply I had written. It says I've been blocked.

And, I'm not getting updates on any threads I participate in.

I too thought that PSI Corps interest was in using Shadow technology for themselves.

Skitty, B5 is a space station, the 5th of its kind. The first 4 were blown up or disappeared without a trace (Babylon 4). The station’s mission is well described in its season 1 intro. As the story progresses, we learn of the great war that took place 1000 years ago, and that the ancient enemy is gathering its forces again, as described in the intro of season 3.


Babylon 5 really captivated me when it was first aired, and it was an obsession of mine when I was 19. I still think it’s really good.

That's a glitch that happens. I've gotten it too.
And occasionally there are some topic reply notifications I don't receive.

I had a really nice reply that the system won't let me post for some reason.

I don;t want to post a link to the text as that would circumvent anything that has been put here. I don;t know why it's blocked, but until I know why, I'm not sure what is the problem.

So, I hope nobody get's ticked...I'm going to try in sections.

(Part1)

I know about Morden. And people in Earthgov where being manipulated by the Shadows. However like I said I could not find a link between the sleeper program and the Shadows. Alto members of those black-ops groups seems to have been present when they wanted to control a shadow ship themselves. However I know remember that one psi-cop being present when that senator briefed Morden.
I've been trying to find the comic that had that image. It solidified that there was an actual 'shadow' government (Never put that one together before) making these things happen behind the scenes and they were being led by the shadows. As in all cases, any government will have those in agencies who are loyal to them.

Part 2

The premise was that the Vorlons and the Shadows were the last of the 'ancient ones' still shepherding the lower races. They were junior to the 'first one' who saved Sheridan by imparting a bit of his own life force.

Part 3



The Vorlons believed in using gentle guidance and the Shadows believed in growth through adversity. They had been manipulating the young races into fighting a 'proxy war' of philosophy for millennia.

They both infiltrated governments and civilizations to hold sway. That's why the Vorlons always appeared as a specific type of 'heavenly host' to any race that saw them when not in their 'containment suits'. They'd both been guiding races openly using that form of sway where the shadows were purveyors of power and conflict and used those dreams of power to seduce and sway leaders while the Vorlons used different methods, but no less insidious.

In a way, it was a classic re-framing of biblical structure, good vs evil, light vs dark.

But, I wish I could find that comic book to show the page. The Comic was Canon as it was designed to specifically fill in those gaps.

Sorry for that. I found the 'offending line' but it still makes no sense. I notified a mod with all the details. I have no idea what was in that one line that would block the reply.

Ugggghhhh...

And, I am getting no reply notifications. I haven't turned anything off.
