When I started watching B5, my favorite character was Londo. Season 2, it became G'Kar. Season 3, it became a combination of Vir and Marcus… but by season 4, it had fully become Vir, and there was no going back. Vir is the one of the bravest, most compassionate, most caring, and all around NICEST person on that show, and he shows that even when people are nervous or start with nothing, they can still be a force to be reckoned with. I absolutely adore Vir Cotto with every fiber of my being.
okay but the timeline… a disease that can lay dormant for weeks before suddenly activating and killing within 24 hours just happens to emerge from dormancy at the exact same time for the entire markab population across their entire homeworld and all their colonies to kill them all before the cure can be distrubuted to any of them, after this disease has been spreading throughout the population slowly for a year
Although it is one of the first episodes of the series, “The Parliament of Dreams” is still my favorite episode of B5, because I can’t think of a better way to represent Earth’s dominant religion, than by showing all of them.
