The Circle is Closed

Babylon 5 was probably my first real SF love after Star Wars. I am proud to call myself a Trekkie, but B5's long-term approach to storytelling blew my mind and its CG ships showed me what real hard sf (or the closest that TV gets) could be. I remember hunting through the local TV guide that came with the Saturday paper to see when it would be on, and a row of VHS tapes sitting in a box and traded with friends for missed episodes.

Michael O'Hare was a big part of that experience and the universe is a little smaller now that he is gone.
