Another solid episode, kind of reminded me of TNG's "The Vengeance Factor" and I was pretty sure his "daughter" was somehow the weapon the entire time but I didn't know how. It had a few funny parts, some good action and even emotional draw that felt authentic.

I enjoyed this one. I also enjoyed that two Babylon 5 supporting cast members made appearances and likely had no clue that either one was part of the Babylon 5 Universe. :samanime20:

John Fleck as Ambassador K.T.Z (Really?! Is that what it said in the credits?) - aka Del Varner from The Babylon 5 Pilot THE GATHERING.

Robin Atkin-Downes as Krill Captain Jackazh - aka or Morann from Babylon 5: In The Beginning / (and more infamously) BYRON from Babylon 5 Season 5. (DAMN he has a long IMDB credit list - 392. All that voice work really adds up.)

Okay now that my Babylon 5 trivia is out of the way. I found BLOOD OF PATRIOTS to be extremely predictable, but pretty entertaining. Definitely had a better feeling after watching this one than some of the other offerings this season. REALLY ready for an all humor episode.
