  • Trivia & Quotes
  • Quotes (10)

    • Garibaldi: You, uh, got the captain's file there? Zack: No. Go away. Garibaldi: I could just peek... Zack: You know, Michael, you and the Minbari have one thing in common: You never know when to leave something alone.

    • Sech Turval: Attend, students. This is a classic archetype in action. The 'strong man' or 'bully', as the humans call it. Essentially a coward whose only skill is convincing others to do what he is afraid to do himself. Sech Durhan: Notice the lack of technique. No follow through. Another flaw in this particular personality type: all muscle, no brain.

    • Delenn: As Anla-shok, we choose to do that which frightens us, knowing that there are no guarantees. He may lose. We cannot help him.
      Lochley: Then he will stand alone.
      Delenn: At the end, Captain... we all stand alone.

    • Sech Turval: We create the meaning in our lives. It does not exist independently. Being Anla-shok does not mean worrying about what others will think about us. It does not mean deciding what to do based upon whether or not it serves our sense of ego or destiny. It means living each moment as if it were your last one. It means doing each right thing because it is the right thing. The scale doesn't matter. The where, the when, the how, or in what cause ... none of those things matter. In my life, I've discovered very few truths. Here is the greatest truth I know: Your death, Rastenn, will have a meaning if it comes while you're in fullest pursuit of your heart.

    • Tannier: This may not be a good idea. Rastenn: We should learn about all the dark places here, since that is where we will do our work ... In the dark.

    Trivia (1)

    • In "A Late Delivery from Avalon" (from season 3), Marcus tells Dr. Franklin he had learned about the application of terror from the Minbari, but he refused to speak about it. In this episode, we actually see some aspect of that training.
