My Commander Sinclair bookmark :-) I’ve had it since 1997 and I use it for all my reading. Now it’s being used for my recently purchased Sinclair story when he left Babylon 5. He’s my B5 hero. Always was and always will be. With this story, I get to hold onto him for a little while longer until he returns to the past…
The bookmark has been on a long journey until now. Everything is complete :-)
Commander Sinclair is and will always be the Station Commander to me. Sorry, Captain Sheridan: I know you’re a Big Damn Hero and the Saviour of the Galaxy, but if I’d been Earthforce in your time, I’d have said “Sorry, no, you’re asking me not alone to commit mutiny but to join what is in effect a military coup against the legitimately elected civilian government of Earth, and your personal charisma is not a good enough reason”.
Not that I won’t always be in Camp Sinclair Forever, but the legit civilian government was bombing civilian targets. The grounds weren’t “Because I said so!” they were “Illegal Orders.” And Sinclair was ALSO running a secret paramilitary organisation in peacetime.
That said, I do find people who claim that B5 was left wing to be pretty hilarious. The main character and his wife set themselves up as Emperors of the Galaxy for Life. And Sinclair was Minbari Jesus.
