Advertisements Nobody ever said "completely meaningless." They serve the story, but they aren't usually the focus of the story. And in this case, the intelligence they got led to a fairly easy victory in this battle. There wasn't much drama in the battle anyway. I've never seen B5, so the discussion of it doesn't mean much to me... The point he is making about that is that the specific detail isn't important. They could write in the exact circumstances, but the point is that she got away somehow. They don't feel the method is a big deal, and doesn't significantly enhance the story they're focusing on. We got some insight into a major character...Apollo, when he decided he didn't really want to come back. It will be interesting to see if his newly realized feelings affect his thoughts and actions going forward.
