I'm just being nosy here -- I was wondering *why* there's a card for
Senator Voudreau who only appeared once (so far) and doesn't *seem*
to be exactly pivotal, while there *isn't* one for either Lou Welch
(who has appeared more than once and is shown to be (whether he really
is or not...) loyal and a friend to Garibaldi) or Bester (who is quite
obviously important to the show)...?

And why in the pictures of the ships is there not one of a Starfury?
There is one on the side of the box (am I correct in assuming that
was one of the promo cards?  How do I go about getting a set of 
those?), but other than the special cards doesn't appear to be one
in the set.

Just being picky...

     They tended to go from what photos and art was available from WB, and
in large measure...that ain't a lot.
