No objections made to the merger as performed. ElectricalTill (talk) 13:56, 3 March 2019 (UTC)

As the nominator of Babylon 5 influences for deletion, I spent some time trying to gather sources for it as my original intent was to clear the article of its 'multiple issues' so it stood on its own. After a long time searching I concluded that most of the 'references' highlighted in the series to history, culture etc. were so vaguely stated that it would be next to impossible to convincingly cite them without exact keywords/phrases to look for. I am not making any assessment about correctness - a good number of the claims are very plausible, and in all probability those references were deliberate - unfortunately most of them are uncited and I was unable to find sources.

I found sources for 10-20% of what was there. I rewrote, consolidated and incorporated that 10-20% into this article when I nominated Babylon 5 influences for deletion. In my opinion the merge is done, but please add your thoughts. ElectricalTill (talk) 08:33, 22 February 2019 (UTC)

Ivanova's departure in Season 4 summaryEdit

The season 4 summary here says " Ivanova is critically injured in the war, and decides to leave Earthforce". I could be wrong, but my memory was the on screen explanation for her departure from Babylon 5 was that she was promoted to Captain and given command of her own Earthforce ship. Also in the last episode, set about 19 years after we last see her, she is still in Earthforce holding the rank of General. Thus, I think this statement is wrong. The Ivanova article would also seem to confirm that she did indeed stay in Earthforce, but move to a new command. Dunarc (talk) 18:44, 14 August 2019 (UTC)

Correct, I fixed it. --Masem (t) 18:56, 14 August 2019 (UTC)
Thanks - good to know my memory still works. Dunarc (talk) 20:51, 15 August 2019 (UTC)
