Hi Star Adder
Many of the leaders in this mod, were not leaders in the TV-series. They were Ambassadors. Kosh was not the leader of the Vorlon Empire, but he was its representative at Babylon 5 (a sort of United Planets forum), so was Londo Mollari, Delenn, G'Kar and John Sheridan.
John Sheridan was never the leader of the Earth Alliance, he was the President of the Universal Alliance. But, he was the Representative/Ambasador of the Earth Alliance on Babylon 5 untill the Human civil war. Morden was also not the leader of the Shadows only a messenger... But, it is these faces which we identify with the various races.
That is why, I would like to have the Ambassadors from the TV series to represent each race, because they are the ones we know from the show.
Furthermore, you don't start the game with a huge Universal Alliance fighting the Drakh Hordes, following the Shadow War. You start out with the various races on their home planets: Minbari, Humans, Vorlon, Narn, Centauri, Shadows, and Drakhs. You then slowly have to expand your territory, build your own alliances and fight the wars...
The best thing would be to replace the Anla'Shok with the Universal Alliance, or even better with the Non-Alligned League (Drazi). The Rangers (Anla'Shok) are simply a military/intelligence organization within the Universal Alliance, just like the PSI Corps and Earth Force are Human organizations.
The reason why I'm favoring the Non-Alligned League (Drazi Freehold) is that the Universal Alliance is made up by Minbari, Narn, Centauri, Human, Drazi and many other races. That would limit the playable sides to only 4 factions/races: Universal Alliance, Vorlon Empire, Shadows and Drakh Hordes.
The great thing about this game/mod is that you start from scratch and has to build up the race of your choise to become the leader of the United Planets (Universal Alliance) or, if you choose the evil approach, to leave the United Planets and destroy all your opponents with military might.
It is, as you say all raw8's decision, and I'm giving my point of you, just as you're giving yours.
Looking forward to the end of February
