Goofs

As Delenn and Sheridan enter the station, a man in the crowd is holding a sign, saying "sic transit gloria mundi". However, as the camera angle changes so that the crowd is seen from the back, there is no evidence of any signs in the crowd. Then the camera switches back again and we see the sign once more.

Example of great scifi
15 April 2007 | by (US) – See all my reviews

B5 is an almost-masterpiece, it would have been an plain and simple masterpiece had JMS not sped up the story and added more detail and overall depth (and better dialogue and effects) to the weekly episodes. But this one episode is in and of itself a masterpiece as far as scifi-on-TV is concerned. I reminds one of the great authors, Asimov, Miller (a bit too similar here but it's TV), Clarke, Card, etc. It captures moments from human history far into the future and looks back on how our heroes in the show had affected history. The last scene on humans turning into Vorlon-like first ones is just plain cool. absolutely far out this episode was.
