Another episode that reflects modern times. I could fix a lot of things if I had a Whitestar fleet.
“Enough is enough!” - John Sheridan, Babylon 5, Sept 2, 2261
Sheridan has called the council together. He tells them that he is now asking for something from then since he has been patrolling their borders with the Whitestars. He wants them to all send one destroyer class ship from each world to help protect Babylon 5 and he wants them to sever ties with Earth. Ivanova tells them that 10,000 civilians have been killed in attacks on Proxima III. Sheridan says it’s time to do something but he thinks the alien races should not get involved, as to not give Clark more ammunition in his anti-alien campaign.
All this while, Starfuries are flying all around, training and drilling for the coming attack. They are going to liberate Proxima III
"From now on, Earth stands alone. We're taking back Proxima III, we're taking back Mars, and then we're going to take back our home, or die trying."
Marcus rushes into the meeting with info about Proxima III and how the colony is running out of time. They are blockaded by Earth and are being attacked as well. He says the Heracles and the Pollux destroyed the civilian transports and are blockading the colony. John asks Marcus if they can identify the other ships who have not fired on civilians. He will give them a chance to defect. He says they must commit totally to this operation. "No surrender, no retreat."
Garibaldi shows up at Londo’s apartments to ask for some help in getting to Centauri space though we do not find out why. Vir lets slip that Londo is at a meeting and he lets slip what Sheridan is about to do. Garibaldi says he will things his own way to save Earth. (I have to admit, I am SICK of Garibaldi by now.)
Ivanova is getting the Starfury crews ready. She tells them they have codes to communicate and they must use them since they can’t trust any others… even voices. "Trust Ivanova, trust yourself. Anybody else, shoot him."
Sheridan sends three White Stars toward Earth – one by earth and two by mars. They a re the decoys to make Clark think they are going to attack Earth. Perhaps he will pull some of this ships away from Proxima III. The Whitestar fleet will be hiding in Hyperspace near Proxoma III. Marcus says they are taking fire already on the colony.
Londo goes to visit G’kar though G’kar doesn’t seem at all interested in making nice. Londo proposes they sign a joint agreement of mutual support with Babylon5 and G’kar is angry and uninterested, ignoring all of Londo’s friendly overtures and refusing to drink with him. Londo leaves, rather sadly.
Sheridan briefs the pilots and off they all go into hyperspace – Whatestar II has the B5 logo painted on her so there can be no mistaking who the ship belongs to.
There is a battle. I shall not describe it but suffice to say, one ship is very aggressive, one is blown to bits and in the end, the battle goes to Sheridan. One Commander, who relieved the Captain of duty to save her shipmates from senseless death, is going to repair her ship and keep the captain under arrest. One of the other will help the colonists on Proxima III to rebuild. Two more will join Sheirdan and fight Clark and his dictatorship.
Back on B5, Londo is sitting morosely in the bar, drinking, when G’kar joins him and says he will sign the agreement but not on the same page and takes that drink he refused before. When he leaves, Londo smiles, a bit sadly but a smile.
The Voice of the Resistance announces the liberation of Proxima III, the joint statement by the narn and Centauri.
Garibaldi leaves for Mars, saying he will never return.
“Enough is enough!” - John Sheridan, Babylon 5, Sept 2, 2261
1. The problematic thing in these eps is Garibaldi. How much is his mind control and how much is him? He seemed to resent Sheridan from the beginning. I am actually quite surprised at how angry I am at him.
2. Do you think G’kar meant to sign the agreement all along? Was he just letting Londo suffer a little because he could?
3. Sheridan said: “Our mandate is to defend Earth against all enemies, foreign and domestic. Now Clark has become that enemy. Your oath is to the Alliance and to the people back home, not to any particular government.” Comments?
4. Is it still treason if you’re doing the right thing?
5. Wouldn’t these men and women who commanded the ships have given it more thought that we see them do, considering that they may have family in harm’s way back on Earth? Or did they figure it’s now al or nothing?

"Sometimes I feel that he is as mysterious as the gods, and that he is hiding something of vital importance from me. Something that would transform my life."
Few events are more thrilling in a young man's life than a blood feud between two villages. Or so Adrian thought.
Torn between affection toward his traditional-minded father and worship of his peace-loving, heretical priest, Adrian finds himself caught between two incompatible visions of his duty to the gods. Then the Jackal God sends Adrian a message that will disrupt his world and send him fleeing to a new and perilous life.

"'You have committed a vile and savage act, one that any other nation would punish with death. Our punishment, on the other hand, will only be to give you what you want. You have sought to live in a world without boundaries of civilization, and such a world shall henceforth be your dwelling place.'"
A cold-hearted murderer. A vicious abuser. A young man hiding a shameful secret. A bewildered immigrant. A pure-minded spy.
All of these men have found their appointed places at Mercy Life Prison, where it is easy to tell who your enemies are. But a new visitor to Mercy is about to challenge decades-old customs. Now these men's worst enemies may be hiding behind masks . . . and so may their closest allies.

"It's all about torture. That's what I didn't understand for a long time. The High Seeker has been seeking out and punishing those of us who wish to show greater mercy to the prisoners than the Code allows. Those of us who question whether it's right to torture prisoners."
The Eternal Dungeon is no longer a prison. It's a battlefield.
Split apart from their closest loves and friends, a small group of prison-workers seek to abolish the use of torture against prisoners in the queendom's royal dungeon. Time is running out, for the deadly High Seeker has already flogged and executed prison-workers who oppose his policies.
Do the reformers have enough time and skill to bring about radical change in the dungeon? Will they be able to overcome their mistrust of one another?

( To receive notices of my fiction by e-mail )
This weekend many of My People, aka geeks, have converged on San Diego Comic-Con - and I'm not there. [sob]
The rest of us can still look at awesome comic book cakes and dream, right?
(By Bella Cakes)
Look at this gorgeous Wonder Woman cake! LOOK AT IT.
Ok, you can stop now.
Because na na na na na na... BATMAN!
LOVE this design; so much impact for a (relatively) simple silhouette.
But maybe you prefer the Dark Knight a little less... dark?
(By Lindsay Colasurdo)
Pretty piles of punchy pink, Batman!
You know, this color combo is really starting to grow on me.
Here's a fun Hulk cake with some priceless reactions:
I admire your restraint, Elijah; I'd be gnawing on Hulk's elbow by now.
Anyone else love Supergirl?
'Cuz you could totally use this cake for Supergirls OR Supermans (er... men):
Oh! And did you know Groot has his own comic book now? It looks fantastic, just like this cake:
(By Aroma de Azucar)
And I love that Rocket!
If you're after more classic comic books, though, check this out:
(By 21 Cake Lane)
Awwwwesome. The colors, the ascending dot pattern, the perfect overlapping covers - it's ALL good.
And another classic: Wonder Woman!
(See what I did there?)
Not exactly a superhero, but you have to see this fun comic book/pop art cake, made entirely with buttercream!
C'mon. How fun is this??
Yet another reason why geek weddings rock:
Joker & Harley wedding cake.
And finally, a dreamy color combo for some of our fav superheroes:
...plus maybe a favorite villain? 'Cuz I like to think that's one of Harley Quinn's bombs on top. :)
Happy Sunday, guys! Hope those of you at SDCC are having fun!
Subscription/Access Policy: Feel free to friend me and I'll probably grant access, although most of my posts will be public anyway! I'm looking to make more friends, so I'd be happy to have you, but you don't need to feel pressure to grant me access if that makes you uncomfortable.
Fannish Interests: I've had a lot of the years (shoujo manga, Harry Potter, Dragon Ball, Pokemon, Mass Effect, superhero comics), but lately I'm focusing mainly on Doctor Who, Star Wars, and Star Trek. I love a good space story! I recently decided to do a proper watch through of all of classic Doctor Who, so I'm having a lot of fun with that.
I like to post about: My journal is new, but I plan to post commentary and pictures as I make my way through Classic Who and the Big Finish audios. I'll also post about New Who, Star Wars and Star Trek, my personal life a little, and my cat a lot. I make icons occasionally.
About Me/Other Info: I'm a genderfluid (they/them prounouns), mentally ill nerd who likes being friendly and considerate. I have a lot of passion for my fandoms, although I can also be a little scatterbrained and flighty. I do my best to be consider of other people and to own up to any mistakes I make. I like to have a quiet, good time talking about science-fiction, animals (I love marmots and other related animals like squirrels), makeup, and toy collecting.
I'm looking to decrease my tumblr presence (too stressful for me), and increase my presence on other platforms such as this one.
