I'm sorry, but anyone who thinks the use of an angelic (or seemingly
angelic character), whose likes have been written about for, oh, about
4,000 years, is ripping off Star Trek, has his head so thoroughly up his
ass as to have blipped into an entirely new intestinally-based reality
and desperately needs to get a wider frame of reference.

I suppose this should teach me. Dear Mr. JMS, allow me first of all to
suck up - er - congratulate you on your excellent television series.
It's truly outstanding. Regarding my post, I was trying to be
sarcastic. I was very annoyed by several posts that claimed CTI was a
rip-off of "Wolf in the Fold" and tried to point out the absurdity of
that position by posting another absurd characterization. I hereby
pledge to post the required :-) :-D or ;-/ everytime I send such a
sarcastic message.

The quote isn't exact, but it's close...

There's a wonderful phrasing of this involving sweaters shaped like Klein
bottles, but I forget it at the moment.

Maybe he meant to say that only Star Trek would stoop to using angels
in the outfield. I just hope we don't find a time-portal rock formation
sitting on Epsilon 3. Or find Abe Lincoln cruisin' for a bruisin'...

Only "over six"? One of my favorite episodes, the one where the
announcer's mike takes over the show, and they end up doing a Robin
Hood kinda thing.

Yeah, I wish we had had a VCR back when we first started catching these

My only thought to this thread is that if B5 was on at a time before Trek
Say at 7:00 follwed by DS9 could we have said that DS9 was ripping off
B5. I am sure that they have little spies running back and forth that
must be the answer (drooling with sarcasm (tm))
