Babylon 5

Knives - S2-E17

Corrected entry: In "Babylon Squared," it took several hours to reach Sector 14 from Babylon 5. Here, Sheridan and Garibaldi get there in a matter of minutes. (00:35:00)

Correction: It depends on the ship and the route. Different kinds of ships can use different routes based on their size.

The Fall of Centauri Prime (2) - S5-E18

Corrected entry: Throughout this and the previous episode, Centauri's Regent mispronounces the name of his own planet as "Centuri." Only as he's dying does he finally correctly call his homeworld "Centauri." (00:15:05)

Jean G

Correction: Londo has stated that there are regional accents with the Centauri (north and south). Plus the Regent was somewhat not himself, remember.

The Very Long Night of Londo Mollari - S5-E2

Corrected entry: When Doctor Franklin tells Sheridan about Londo, he says that the Centauri have a bipulminary system. The correct term would be bicardiary system. (Pulminary has to do with the lungs, cardiac/cardiary has to do with the heart.) (00:10:10 - 00:11:00)


Correction: For the Centauri, their two hearts do everything our lungs and kidneys do. Londo refers the 'cardio respiratory system' when poisoning Refa.

Severed Dreams (3) - S3-E10

Corrected entry: As the Earth loyal ships exit the jumpgate, the force consists of two destroyers and two cruisers. However Babylon 5 and the renegade ships destroy three destroyers and the battle is won. There is no sign of the cruisers through the entire battle.

Correction: The Agrippa and Roanoake were destroyed by the station and the rebel ships, but their support cruisers were also likely destroyed without much notice or left adrift. Given the spectacular way both destroyers went down the attention was not on the cruisers.

Babylon Squared - S1-E21

Visible crew/equipment: Approximately 29 minutes and 10 seconds into this episode, right after Sinclair clasps hands with "The One", Garibaldi and Sinclair are on the ground. In the upper right corner of the shot there is a grip with a red baseball cap and red and white shirt on. He has long hair and spiffy glasses.

Commander Jeffrey David Sinclair: Mr. Garibaldi was right. He said this was going to be trouble.
Susan Ivanova: There's nothing more annoying than Mr. Garibaldi when he's right.
