Some of the stuff here is pretty good, you guys should really approch the project 7 guys,

http://holdtheline.game-host.org/

the stuff they are doing, blows my mind, I am in the closed beta and I must say the high quality ships, like the narn, hyperion, are beyond anything ever done for b5, not to mention they are creating textures totaly from scracth, and fixing the cheap ass textures used in the show, that were just mapped any old way and then colored, and they are only 4000 polys, much better then "low" poly ships people make at 6000.

I Cant wait for r3, played and still do play r2 with my friends

Keep up the b5 fight!

Kosh seems to be a very popular character.
"The reason for this is that the original Fortran got so convoluted and extensive (10's of millions of lines of code) that no-one can actually figure out how it works, there's a massive project going on to decode the original Fortran and write a more modern system, but until then, the UK communication network is actually relying heavily on 35 year old Fortran that nobody understands." - Flipside

i dont recal seeing any eys on him at all, when he's not in his enviro suit (only in one episode i think)  he looks like a giant-squid made of pure energy.

Fine his, eye hole camera thingy in the front of his encounter suit. Who knows, maybe he was a devil vorlon. :P

EDIT: Giant squid? I thought it was like a stream of energy that was pretty formless. Anyhoo that begs the question why he didnt look like some diety to the people watching when both Kosh's faught.

becaase the only people watching were Station Security personell, everyone else had been evacuated from the planned area-of-confrontation.

I'm guessing that Vorlons appear angelic only when they want to.  When Kosh made his appearance at the end of Season 2, he afterwards said that it was a great strain being seen by so many at once.  That implies that it required telepathic action on his part to create the angel form.  Since there were so many different races there at once, he had to project a different telepathic signal specific to each species, all at the same time, in order that his projection would appear to match each race.  I'm guessing that Kosh's replacement (which many sources name "Ulkesh") wasn't particularily concerned with maintaining the angel projection, since everone arround him was trying to kill him.  He was right pissed off and didn't care about maintaining an illusion to a bunch of 'bugs'.  On the subject of Vorlons, I also get the impression that they are not pure energy, but rather are plasma life forms.  Lorien on the other hand, with his abililty to take complete corporial form, then switch to the 'light ball', thing would suggest that he is pure energy in his natural state, but can switch from energy to matter, and take corporial form.  Just my impressions.

Later!

Well the vorlons are also able to take a kind of corporal form.
How could Kosh have saved Sheridan if they can't?
He really grabed the Captains hands. I really don't think that he employed some kind of telecinetic there.
And remember he tryed to look to everyone in his/her species, so there was no way to do that with a corporal body, which would look the same for everyone. And when you get shot with PPGs its better to have no "real" body, so the shots pass through you, like they did on that episoe.

A pair of red eyes suddenly appeared on him when he was staring at Delenn (out if his encounter suit of course).


I thought that Ulkesh was just cool. He was a real badass. The first one was wise, and was pretty cool.
