	just curious as to why no Michael O'hare in the'

a movie about the Earth-Minbari war without even mentioning

Nobody said he wouldn't be mentioned; using the footage we shto from "And the
 Sky Full of Stars," he's in the last part of the movie.  Bear in mind that at
 the time he was a squadron leader assigned to Earth as part of the defense
 network there, so didn't have a great deal to do with the larger parts of the

Basically, each character (with the exception of one or two) gets one or two
 scenes in the movie (we have a lot of them, remember).  To bring Michael out
 from New York, at first class airfare, plus accommodations, salary, for one or
 two scenes (one of which we already *had* him for) was impossible under the
 budget, much as we discussed it and would've been interested in doing so.
