What Happened Next?

Here's a new one. Pick a scene, describe it as best you can (characters, anything said, setting etc) and then say what happened immediately afterwards.

No?

Well, try this one:

Doctor Franklin comes across alien ambassadors arguing over something in the corridors. He says he is glad to catch them all together, as he has a request to make of them. He wants each of them to ask their governments to supply as much blood and tissue as they can, "just in case it's needed." After "calming" their fears as to why he would make such a request, Franklin walks off with a cryptic "See you all later. I hope."

What happens next?

I know the scene, I know the reason behind the scene. But without cheating and rewatching the episode I could only guess. So here is my best guess: Is this scene followed by the council meeting with the league of non aligned worlds where they force Sheridan to make the rangers help them, Sheridan's way of setting things up for the IA?
Or do Sheridan and Dr, Franklin meet in the hall and Dr. Franklin says, "well I did what you asked me too. I hope it works?" I may have imagined this scene. LOL

Yeah, that's basically right. It doesn't have to be exact; even I'm not sure what happened IMMEDIATELY after: I just mean what generally happened.

IIRC, the ambassadors start discussing among themselves how they must be right, that there is a new threat to the Alliance of which Sheridan and the council are keeping them ignorant (even going so far as to believe the "new enemy" may be invisible --- "They could be right here now! They could be all around us!!) and fall into Sheridan's trap, demanding him to allow the White Stars patrol their borders, which he wanted but never thought he could secure permisson for.

OK, your turn!

Capt Sheridan is in sick bay telling Dr Franklin and Mr Garabaldi that he had been attacked by aliens before, but never by dead ones...

Welllllll... strictly speaking, the next one should have been set by Delenn of Mir, as they were the one who solved the original one, but I'm sure someone that much at peace with the Universe will be appropriately philosophical about it.

Then again, remember her at the head of the Minbari fleet when Clark's destroyers attacked the station....!

Sorry!!! I didn't realize there was any order to it. I just thought you wanted a senenio of a scene and ANYONE could join in, I guess I was wrong.

I think the way it's supposed to work is that the person who gives the correct answer is the one who should give the next question.

But since nobody's keeping score, I don't think it matters. We probably should only have one at a time going, though (barring the occasional close-together posts as happens in the quote thread).

Yeah, what Jan said.
Basically it's just fun, so no real rules, but if someone goes to the trouble of getting it right, he or she (or it) should get first crack at a new one, is how I see it.

But the important thing is to enjoy it, so I guess anyone can have a go, as long as the person who solved the previous one doesn't get upset and start wildly firing a PPG around!

Best, though, as Jan says, to solve one bfore moving on to another...

Answer: Franklin tells Sheridan that the dead alien had gas. ...and that the buildup of gasses was what made the corpse move.

I don't have a new one so anybody can jump in.

Don't you hate it when a gassy, dead alien attacks you? That's why I always keep a Pack'mara with me to handle that stuff.

All right my turn. Three centauri have a private meeting in ambassador's Mollari's quarters. They discuss some unpatriotic actions involving the current emperor.
Londo asks Vir, "this conversation makes you uncomfortable?"
Vir says, "yes, yes it does."
Londo responds with, then for once you and I have something in common."


what happens next?
