	First of all, let me say I love the show and generally don't care
about scientific accruacy, or technical consistancy.  However when
re-watching Severed Dreams I noticed that some of the CGI and plot lines
didn't match-up.  Ex.  Sheriden orders a firing solution on the Roanoke,
however the Roanoke is rammed by the Churchill.  B5 fires and we see the
Agripa taking the hits, afterwards Sheriden tells the Roanoke to surrender
and let B5 take on prisoners, but hadn't the Roanoke already been
destroyed.  Wasn't the Agripa the ship B5 wasted (atleast by the CGI).  I
was wondering if this was just a small slip up between the CGI and script?
I know its nit-picking, I must have seen Severed Dreams 10 times before I
even noticed it, but I was just curious where the slip up took place.


The past is behind us, the future before us, the present is in between.
The past is not forgotten, the future uncertain, and for the present let
us be at peace.

Yup.  The show was seriously under the gun for delivery when those shots
were done.  If I remember correctly, a couple of these shots came in on
the same day we were to deliver, and there was no time to re-render them
and still make the satellite.

If I were to tell you it would never happen again, I would be a big
liar, or a deluded optomist, but we try.  Animators are human, after
all!  :-)
