    Trivia, Notes, Quotes and Allusions


    • TRIVIA (2)

      • When Sheridan met Galen and told him that he met one of his kind, a Technomage, he was referring to Elric whom he met in the Season 2 episode, "Geometry of Shadows."

      • After the first officer of the Victory tells the captain about the ship's rear defenses being destroyed during the final battle, the camera focuses on a man and a woman, both with black hair. Later, the same man and woman appear in the background of the Excalibur even though they previously appeared aboard the Victory.

    • QUOTES (6)

      • Sheridan: Looks like you won't get your chance to shoot either of us.
        Dureena: I've grown accustomed to disappointment.

      • Lochley: You're asking the impossible.
        Sheridan: Then I am asking the right person.

      • Sheridan: Those who command the Excalibur will never stop, never give up, never slow down, until a cure is found. We will take any help we can get, wherever and whoever it comes from. Because this is a cause that surpasses borders and differences and distrust. This is a mission about the survival of Earth itself. What we do over the next five years, here and at home, and across the darkness between the stars will determine whether an entire world will live or die. It's a fight we can't afford to lose and we won't. We won't!

      • (after Dureena takes the data crystal from the Drazi's "skin pouch")
        Anderson: Hey lady! Dureena! Listen, the only thing valuable I carry on me is my watch! I want you to know that in case that ever comes up in the future! Okay?

      • Garibaldi: Because if you are going to blow my head off, I suggest you do it right now or I am going to tear your heart out! And if you do shoot me, the rest of my people will be all over you. And what they'll do to you is worse than anything I could dream up in a thousand years. And I can dream real dark.

      • Galen: And if sometimes dreams come true, then what of our nightmares?
