{original post had no questions}

Exactly. The quote Delenn recited in "Parliament" was the quote
from Valen when he formed the first Grey Council.

The time-flash (which in Sheridan's case is much more
pronounced than what we've seen before) slides you forward or backward
in time to where you are at that moment. At that moment, 18 years from
now (in the story), Sheridan was/will be on Centauri Prime. So when he
slid along the time line, that's where he ended up. Just as in Babylon
Squared, when Garibaldi had a timeflash back to his time on Mars. It
blips your perception to another point in your life, wherever you
happen to be.

Well, who can say at this point *what* happens on Z'ha'dum...?

With this show, it's never safe to assume *anything*.

There are no alternate univeses, only alternate or possible
futures. If they didn't go back, the future in which Sinclair is there
with Garibaldi -- having come back to see through the final battle --
and in which Sheridan is killed, and Ivanova is calling for help...that
future will come true.
