Mediate the Narn Centauri Negotiations (Babylon 5 RAR)

Post by FaxModem1 » 2019-09-28 09:58am

Due to Act of Q, you are whisked into the Babylon 5 universe as an Earth Alliance diplomat, stationed at Babylon 5, at the end of 2257. Your main directive is to try and build a lasting peace between the Narn Regime and the Centauri Republic. Jeffrey Sinclair is still the head of the station and the EA representative on the B5 council, but he will work with you to try and help with the negotiations.

What do you do? Do you think it's possible? What actions do you take?

Would it be safe to assume that banging the delegates' heads together, or locking them in a broken elevator, is right out...? :twisted: :roll: :wink:

Fuuuuuuuck. Um. I don't think this is actually possible without violating causality or having other lofty powers. I don't think I could do it just as me in the series. I have an operational plan, but it actually involves being highly positioned in the Psi Corps.

The final "peace" involved getting Londo & G'kar to both finally realise they were lost in pointless hate, grow a grudging respect for each other then kill off everyone above them so that they could both say we're done with you, fuck and leave us alone. There is no way you can get even to that point around the S1 B5 negotiating table. Neither is in a position to do it or has any inclination to do it. Plus even with our position as viewers we don't know all the background players in the Centauri who are manoeuvring and killing off potential proponents of peace.

I will listen to Ivanova.
I will not ignore Ivanova's recommendations. Ivanova is God.

There is no "I" in TEAM. There is a ME however.

Lock them in a room with a predatory animal capable of killing them. Tell them that represents their war and hatred. Either they overcome it, or the predator eats them both.
