Week 23 - And The Sky Full Of Stars

Fonts and info:

"not to yield" - font is KacstArt
The words in the background are these:
Tho' much is taken,
much abides; and tho'
We are not now that strength
which in the old days
Moved earth and heaven;
that which we are, we are;
One equal-temper
of heroic hearts,
Made weak by time and fate,
but strong in will
To strive, to seek, to find,
and not to yield.

From Ulysses, by Alfred, Lord Tennyson. For me it references the theme of "memory" in a couple of ways - firstly that the quote from the poem is talking about memory, and the past, and secondly because the poem itself is an important memory of Sinclair's; he quotes it more than once on the show, and leaves a copy for Sheridan when he takes over.

"ghosts" - font is Luxi Sans Bold
That capture by the Minbari at the Battle of the Line is clearly an extremely important incident for Sinclair, and the return of those lost memories is a crucial part of his arc, as well as (obviously) this episode. But also, it hangs over him; he is mistrusted by his superiors and people like the "Knights" because of what happened. That's really what I was thinking of here; the personal and professional consequences ten years down the line.

"unless we remember" - font is URW Bookman L, Bold
The quote is by EM Forster, and seemed applicable to the episode.
