Episode transcripts

Since there seems to be some support for the idea of writing up transcripts of the episodes, I'll try to do episode one this weekend. (Well, from the beginning to my best guess at where the first episode is supposed to end, since I'm using the edited US VCDs - someone who has the individual episodes...

What would you change?

Yes, that's a good explanation of his death as scripted in the current english version (and probably seems more reasonable from a Japanese viewpoint), but I don't think Carter ending up as a suicidal bully without the courage to kill himself directly fits at all well with the hero figure that Shiro ...

Genesis storyline (spoilers)

I agree that some recognition of Kirara would be a good thing, but I still don't think he belongs as part of F01. It conflicts with his role as bodyguard, for a start; protecting a component of F01 makes sense, but getting another component to do the job doesn't. And while he's survived handgun fire...

Genesis storyline (spoilers)

Nice work 8)A couple of comments:Kirara shouldn't be part of the F01. I see no reason to retcon his heroic death, there was no hint of him having such significance in the series, and neither Lamia nor Halley are lacking in courage.And there should be a stronger reason for the Heir's choice of Shiro,...

What would you change?

Nah, I like Makara being a villain, and while I was sad to see her killed, it was dramatically sound. And as for Lamia and Halley... well, he was pretty cute 8) But more seriously, I think Lamia knew on some subconscious level that it was her destiny, and expected and wanted it. Her not liking it wa...

Japanese-English

My theory on the relationship between Prof Hagen, Shiro, and Lamia, is that the Prof and his wife had a messy divorce shortly after Shiro's birth (possibly due to him spending too much time on the X project), and she got custody of the kid. Despite having regular visitation rights with Shiro, the Pr...

How far is a milliton?

I'd guess a thousandth of a lightyear, or something vaguely comparable to a lightyear. I seem to recall values of thousands of millitons being used for interstellar distances. What are the smallest milliton distances used in the series?

*sigh* _filmed_ in widescreen, yes. Unfortunately, they didn't render the cgi in widescreen, since that would have been too expensive at the time. JMS intended to re-render it for widescreen release in the future (ie now) when the cost of the processing had come down. Unfortunately, the nice people ...

Anyone remember Starstormers?

I remember wondering if there was a tv series because of the photo covers, but I've never heard of one. I really liked the first three books when I was a kid, but I didn't think the last two were up to standard - perhaps just because I was significantly older when I got hold of them.
