I was going through my B5 cards trying to find a picture that scanned well. This one scanned remarkably well and fits a certain role with my journal: It feels wrong. No matter your point of view about B5's storyline, Psi-Cop Sheridan is the combination of two polar opposites into something that no one wants. The picture is either the good guy wearing a black hat or a bad guy wearing a white hat. I figure I'll use it for when I talk about politics.

I originally wanted to scan in the card "Level the Playing Field" for my userpic, but neither the Sheridan nor Bester version scanned well. That card taught me a bit about playing to your strengths rather than just losing with your faults.

Vorlon Space's Card Finder can get you higher resolution pictures of cards.

Also I wish we could play B5 now.

I scanned it in at higher resolution, but shrinking it down to the 100x100 livejournal allows was problematic. I also found my scanner had a bit of paint left on it from Planescape which I had to clean off.

The B5 CCG is a remarkably great card game. It managed to catch a lot of the flavor of the show without locking people into what happened in the show. I still need to make a few decks with the house rules you came up with.

You're totally right. This is just Wrong. I saw this and was wondering what you could possibly say about this image that worked, and well... you did. It is Wrong.

Whatever one's view on Psi Cops, Psi Corps Sheridan itself is plenty of Wrong... and with a somewhat different twist on its wrongness.

I do think there's a certain uncomfortable humor in this image, though.

When I saw the picture on the card and the text, it took me a bit to figure out the episode. It happened during a strange trippy Vorlon dream that never really was explained well. The card itself is amusing too:

In game terms, it basically translates "I'm tired of playing Sheridan. I'll play Bester now."

Well, I don't know game terms but I remember the scene from the episode and the strange trippy Vorlon dream stuff.

I still think it's a great image to use in some sort of satire. I don't think Sheridan found it so funny. :p Bester would! ^_^
