A very enjoyable cut of a previously mediocre B5 story.

The original suffered greatly from introducing everyone in anticipation of a series and by jettisoning most of that, save for David's story, and tiny touches elsewhere, you end up with a story that is actually more B5 than the original. Greater proportion of Gkar to the overall story helps continuity with the rest of the series, and frankly I didn't need to know everyone's name and/or backstory, except as it related to the plot (the Covert Intelligence op being the most necessary). Thank goodness for the elimination of the ridiculous weapons scenes.

Given the source material,l I found the audio and visual quality and editing just fine. The "commercial jumps" were occasionally noticeable in the absence of an audio bumper, but you could barely notice any edits. The "Lost Tales" shoehorning also works well. One would wish WB would do something similar officially.
