"This is the Gideon that I think that you've created for us. He's a lot like Sheridan, making his own decisions based on his own real-time understanding of the situation at hand. He's also a lot unlike Sheridan, playing his cards close to the chest and willing to "cheat" as a first solution rather than as a fallback position. Sheridan was Ben Cartwright. Gideon is Brett Maverick. <g> Am I close? :-)"
