The other day I was watching the Babylon 5 movie "A Call to Arms", listening to creator/writer/executive producer J. Michael Straczynski's commentary track, and he mentioned Blakes 7

During one of the scenes where they find out that someone is in possession of a rather nasty weapon left over from the Shadow War, Dureena Nafeel says to Sheridan:
Quote:
"Perhaps I should just shoot myself now and save myself a great deal of time and trouble. But no, that would be selfish. As their greatest enemy, they would have terrible plans for you, if we do not stop them. That's it, first I will shoot you and then I will shoot me. I would consider it a public service."


She wryly smiles while saying that, and on the commentary JMS says:
Quote:
"In some ways there is some... parallels between Dureena's character and a character named Avon from Blakes 7. One thing I like about Blake, and Avon in particular, this character, was that... Avon would always smile once an episode and always at the most inappopriate time."


And another B7 connection of course is that Dureena is played by Carrie Dobro, the voice of Jenna from the new B7 audios
