There's a little hinting in one of the Psi Corps trilogy books that Byron was some kind of a conscience for Bester: Bester is pretty much scum who will use his own people as disposable tools if need be, Byron is (or was supposed to be) more concerned and responsible toward telepaths. If they'd have played this up more in the show it would have been a better dynamic. Instead Byron just looks like a batshit cult leader with an army of Vidal Sassoon terrorist hippies. We know the actor can do better, so put all the blame down to the hasty writing decisions.

** In the UK's captioning of the show anyway; When Garibaldi heralds an invasion by playing a recording of WesternAnimation/PorkyPig going "Th-th-th-that's all folks!" the captioning misattributes the quote to WesternAnimation/BugsBunny.



* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: A {{sleeper hit}} in America, the show met with bigger audience across the pond. The conventions back home were modest in attendance, which left the actors ill-prepared for the Elvis-like reception they get in the UK.



* RetroactiveRecognition: [[Series/{{Scrubs}} Bob Kelso]] can apparently run a spacefleet as well as a hospital.

* RetroactiveRecognition: [[Series/{{Scrubs}} Bob Kelso]] can apparently run RetroactiveRecognition:
** Mira Furlan (Delenn) went on to play
a spacefleet [[WildHair wild-haired]] CrazySurvivalist on ''Series/{{Lost}}''.
** Ken Jenkins (Trevor Hall, captain of the Heracles) later played Dr. Kelso on ''Series/{{Scrubs}}''.
** Matthew Stoner [[Series/{{Angel}} only got creepier
as well he got older]]. Plus he ''really'' hates spiky-haired vampires.
** Creator/BryanCranston appears in "The Long Night"
as a hospital.dedicated Ranger captain.

* TheScrappy: Byron. Mention him on a board with a lot of B5 fans, and watch the flames pour in.

* TheScrappy: Byron. Mention him on a board with a lot of B5 fans, and watch the flames pour in. Byron may be the worst element of the b5 universe next to the demon in ''The Lost Tales'' (On second though, Asmodeus was a better actor.)

* VillainHasAPoint[=/=]UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: Byron, who is supposed to be a sympathetic character, came across as very Jim Jones in wanting to make himself a martyr. The way he kept trying to take the fall for "his" people just screamed for attention and worship. Even moreso, he seemed to consistently prove Bester right with how he acted.\\\

** *** Sinclair/O'Hare's exit from the show. ''There was a hole in his mind.''''
*** "And the Sky Full of Stars" features Sinclair being drugged and suffering from delusions. It was revealed after Michael O'Hare's death that he suffered from schizophrenia, which was the real reason he left the show after the first season.
*** There's also his angrily telling Bester "Get out of my head!"
*** And saying "Enough people have messed with my brain this year" in "Eyes." Even worse, that was the last episode to be filmed in the season, so when he said it he was actually very close to starting intensive therapy to manage his condition.
*** Crossing into real life, Jerry Doyle wasn't aware of O'Hare's condition and did a few interviews where he derisively called O'Hare "crazy."
