    Post Best Science-Fiction series?

    For my money Babylon 5.

    I particularly liked Londo Mollari and G'Kar. Some great quotes from both. Their double act also reminded me of Spock and McCoy, although a bit more violent.

    Just a few quotes:

    "Would you prefer to be conscious or unconscious during the mating? I would prefer conscious, but I don't know what your .. pleasure threshold is." Ambassador G'Kar to Lyta Alexander, The Gathering
    I have tried this as a chat up line. Never got me very far. Can't think why....

    "There are things in the Universe billions of years older than either of our races. They are vast, timeless, and if they are aware of us at all, it is as little more than ants and we have as much chance of communicating with them as an ant has with us. We know. We've tried and we've learned that we can either stay out from underfoot or be stepped on. They are a mystery and I am both terrified and reassured to know that there are still wonders in the Universe, that we have not explained everything. Whatever they are, Miss Sakai, they walk near Sigma 957 and they must walk there alone." Ambassador G'Kar, Mind War
    "There comes a time when you look into the mirror and realize that what you see is all that you will ever be. Then you accept it, or you kill yourself. Or you stop looking into mirrors." Londo, Chrysalis
    "No dictator, no invader, can hold an imprisoned population by the force of arms forever. There is no greater power in the universe than the need for freedom. Against that power governments, and tyrants, and armies can not stand. The Centauri learned this lesson once. We will teach it to them again. Though it take a thousand years, we will be free." G'Kar, The Long, Twilight Struggle
    "What is there left for Narn if all of creation falls around us?
    There's nothing. No hope, no dream, no future, no life. Unless we turn from the cycle of death toward something greater. If we are a dying people, then let us die with honor, by helping the others as no-one else can."
    "I can't understand."
    "Because you have let them distract you. Blind you with hate. You cannot see the battle for what it is. We are fighting to save one another, we must realize we are not alone. We rise and fall together. And some of us must be sacrificed if all are to be saved. Because, if we fail in this, then none of us will be saved. And the Narn will be only a memory." Narn Image and G'Kar, Dust to Dust
    "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 ctransition, 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 always paved in pain."
    G'Kar, Season 3 ending in Z'ha'dum"
    "It is said that the future is always born in pain. The history of war is the history of pain. If we are wise, what is born of that pain matures into the promise of a better world, because we learn that we can no longer afford the mistakes of the past." G'Kar, In the Beginning

    I haven't had the opportunity to watch sci-fi in some time (we don't get the sci-fi channel or any other real channel for that matter.) I grew up on sci-fi and the series' I always liked include:

    V

    Star Trek

    The Outer Limits

    Twilight Zone

    X-files

    I would have to say that I probably liked The Outer Limits best of those.

    Truely a great series and two of the best multi-dimentional characters ever.
