Not actually dev-related, but the news of Mira Furlan's passing hit me like a ton of bricks. Two tons even. Babylon 5 is to this day my favorite creative anything. It's just perfect to me, and a huge part of why is her work as Delenn. Everything I've ever heard about her indicates she was as awesome in real life as she was on B5 and 65 is way too young for anyone to die, period. There is, of course, sadly a lot of death around us these days, and all of it stings, but some of them sting a bit more. But, I think it's a testament to her work how devastated I feel about losing someone I never actually knew. R.I.P. Mira Furlan... to absent friends, in memory still bright :(

    That's sad to hear.

    Unfortunate that so many from B5 have gone so much earlier in life than we might expect.

    B5 was such a great series willing to take chances and etc.

    Growing up DS9 and B5 were played back to back at midnight and 1am on Saturdays. Great combo ;)

    @N00bPancakes Definitely! Some people like to make a big thing about DS9 ripping off B5 and all that behind-the-scenes stuff, and I think it's true, but I don't care, I'm just thrilled we got two magnificent creations.

    You're right, so many B5 deaths :(
