Peacockpit

Spotted it, right? The peacock. Xy inherited that from her grandmother’s antique shop, I think. We’ve displayed it proudly everywhere we’ve lived. It’s not exactly the kind of thing that screams out “spaceship” though, is it? So obviously someone has an unusual flare for set design. And probably a tight budget.

  1. You have Londo Mollari’s peacock? OMG, that’s awesome! (Straczynski was no high-flyer.)

    If anyone is interested in a Bab5 marathon, let me know, I have almost all the DVDs.

  2. David: Well, we are going in alphabetical order, and Babylon comes before Battlestar. I’ve heard so many good things about Battlestar that I do want to check it out eventually, but there’s only so much science fiction TV a man can take.
