You'd be surprised how much it *didn't* change.....

Well, bear in mind that the Valen transition is set up as far
back as the first season....

Sheridan, or someone like him, would've been brought in around
this time regardless, yes...but knowing this would happen, I was able
to skew the new character to have the elements, and be in the position,
that would most help me move the story along.

And you're right...the longer you leave someone in command
there in the show, the more difficult and dangerous it becomes to
remove that character. If you're going to do it, best to do it earlier
than later.

> So MOH departure WAS unexpected?

I've always said that it was something I began to realize was
necessary about two-thirds of the way into season 1, and as I began to
plan out season 2.
