Added DiffLines:

* HumansThroughAlienEyes: Minor example: Prince Vintari reveals himself to be a {{Fanboy}} of human starship designs, describing them as being "so elegant, so deadly!". Compared to the [[BlingOfWar very ostentatious Centauri designs]], this is as good a description as any of the humans' grey, angular, heavily armed starships.


Added DiffLines:

* NoodleIncident: Sheridan's annoyed remarks to Galen imply that not only has Galen tasked Sheridan with unwanted quests on multiple occasions off-screen between ''A Call To Arms'' and now, but also that he's not the only Technomage to make a habit of it.

* SpaceFighter: The venerable Aurora Starfuries are still in service in 2271, and if Galen's FlashForward is accurate, they will still be in service in 2301, making for a service record of [[LongRunner around 60 years or more]] since their earliest chronological appearance during the Earth Minbari War in ''In The Beginning''.

* GenreSavvy: Sheridan evidently has had visions projected into his head in his sleep by various entities enough times to know when it's happening, compare to his confused reactions to the first time Galen did this to him in ''A Call To Arms''.



*** Considering how often [[TakeAThirdOption taking the third option]] is done in Babylon 5, Galen could just be GenreSavvy

* TechnologyMarchesOn: A side effect of the original series concluding in 1998, and ''The Lost Tales'' being released in 2007, between which the state of the art of computer-generated graphics had moved on ''considerably''. The production company (who also worked on the ''[[Series/BattlestarGalacticaReimagined Battlestar Galactica]]'' reboot) presented a low-resolution draft rendering of the CGI models for the film to let him get an idea how things were coming along, and they were at least equal in quality to the best end-product CGI from the original show.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Ideas for the series ranged from an already-scripted Garibaldi episode, to themed episodes around the various factions and races, and perhaps one about [[TheGreatestStoryNeverTold the Telepath War.]]

* RealitySubtext: Dr. Franklin and G'Kar are said to be exploring beyond the rim of known space, a nod to the fact that their actors had died in the years before this film was made.

Added DiffLines:

* MoralDilemma: Galen brings Sheridan a [[BadFuture vision of the future]], and a choice between two undesirable outcomes: He can assassinate the young Prince Vintari, who has done nothing to deserve it, or allow Earth to be devestated in a war launched in thirty years by Emperor Vintari.

* DeadlyDecadentCourt: Briefly deconstructed when the effects of Centauri courtly intrigue upon Prince Vintari's upbringing are discussed.
