* LimitedSupplies: ** During the ISA-Centauri War, Lochley boasts that half the Starfuries are on patrol and the other half were on high alert and the defense grid was on standby. Did anyone ever think that would be enough to defend the station against even four Vorchan-class Centauri cruisers? ** Likewise, when the White Star fleet went to assist the Enfili, the Station was left completely undefended. Why weren't the member worlds contributing to the defense of [=B5?=] Then the place gets attacked by that random race and they are lucky to survive. Why weren't even two White Stars left behind?

But in S5 he is the Earth Alliance ambassador to B5 and the EA rep to the Interstellar Alliance! (Probably a move by JMS to avoid having too many characters).

* LargeHam: "My deeeaarr... ''Meeester'' Garibaldi!" ** Cast commentary reveals that Londo's actor would get into character by strutting back and forth repeating that exact line.

You can't miss him; he's the auxiliary commander of Babylon 4 when it becomes unstuck in time. Oh, boy. You thought the acting was dodgy in ''The Gathering''?

*** Londo had his moments, too. Witness his hysterics at the end of "The Fall of Night". ---->'''Sheridan''': You call it a "buffer zone", the Drazi call it an invasion!

** The titular "Deathwalker" dresses in Prussian military gear and is still wanted by the LONAW for her illegal experiments. She's a Mengele type: Jha'dur admits that she advanced her science one body at a time.

** The aim of the Centauri War, orchestrated by the Drakh, was to deplete the Republic of its treasure (in the form of costly reparations to [=EathGov=], the Narm and Drazi) and cut them off from the League of Aligned Worlds. Broke, embattled, and thirsty for revenge, the Centauri are easily converted into an engine of war.

** Psi Corps and Nightwatch are stand-ins for the SS. When Bester is getting briefed in "Epiphanies", he meets with another G-man in a tower overlooking Earthdome which is adorned with Reichsalder eagles. ** "Between the Darkness and the Light". Marcus wonders aloud why Ivanova wants to take her time scooping up escape pods from the captured Earthforce destroyers. She explains they have to be thorough: Once Clark is deposed, his supporters will disappear into the population. Oh, and like the Father of the Nation, Clark eats his gun when the tide turns against him. ** There's a neat visual trick with the suit jackets. They're each missing lapels, but not the collar. On a civilian, it looks normal enough, but if the character is wearing lapel pins (like Sheridan's interrogator, or the Nightwatch honchos), it evokes a Nazi collar.
