In the Shadow of a Vorlon

Order or chaos—or is that a false dichotomy? What are the risks when one culture attempts to guide and nurture the development of another? Is Babylon 5 an allegory for the Cold War?

In this episode, we tackle these questions and more as we examine the Vorlons and the Shadows from Babylon 5. Expect spoilers in abundance, but fear not—if you’ve never seen the show, we’ll catch you up so that you can grasp the thought-provoking issues it raises that we’re eager to explore.

Matthew is the Caped Ethicist, available at @CapedEthicist, and Jacob goes by BotsRPeopleToo at @BotsRPeopleToo.

Riki Hayashi and Matthew Fox explore the ethical questions from the stories geeks love—superheroes, sci-fi, anime, fantasy, video games, and so much more.
