This is a spoiler for somewhere in the final episode of Babylon 5. If you don't want to read it, I suggest you go back to my main report about Wolf 359 now.

Some blank lines inserted for those who may have come here by accident; if your browser doesn't put in a blank line for each line break, please don't blame me.


Andreas recited to us a speech. He said it was from the final episode of Season 3 (JMS had given him permission to share it with us) and my guess is that it will be the closing speech of S3 (which is why this is a spoiler, since it reveals that G'Kar survives that long). [It was.] It was about moments of transition, and mentioned that the Shadow War had "come to a sudden, and unexpected, pause" (that is as close as I can remember). It was a very good speech. I shall look forward to hearing it in its proper context.

Here's the end of the epilogue in full, with thanks to the useful but unnamed person who transcribed it now that it's been shown in the UK:

G'Quon wrote, "There is a greater darkness than the one we fight. It is the darkness of the soul that has lost its way."

The war we fight is not against powers and principalities. It is against chaos and despair. Greater than the death of flesh, is the death of hope, the death of dreams. Against this peril we can never surrender. The future is all around us, waiting in moments of transition, to be born in moments of revelation. No-one knows the shape of that future or where it will take us. We know only that it is born in pain.

Back to the main body of the con report.
