Sic transit Vir

I admit the headline is probably not that original and hopelessly overused in the context of Babylon 5 just as most of you might already have heard of Stephen Furst‘s passing, but aside from mere practical issues this time it really took me a bit of time to come to grips with that news and […]

The Thorn is gone…

Sad news reaches us today as the magical Ron Thornton now has passed away.
