Chi Draconis?Edit

Has there ever been a confirmed *canon* source for this being Minbar's parent star? If not I suggest the reference be removed and the associated article be deleted. Blind Wolf 21:18, December 26, 2011 (UTC)

Not sure if it makes sense to respond almost 2 years later but it has been mentioned in production material and by JMS. Still Chi Draconis does not make sense to me since it is too near to Earth, if it's only 25 ly away the current SETI project should have already discovered the Minbari through radio signals and energy signatures of their ships not an exploring team after a century ftl drive. B5 itself may be only 16 ly away from earth and Narn homeworld 18 ly but this sounds equally silly too, with all those colonies their woulnd't be enough stars left.--Antanica (talk) 15:01, December 12, 2013 (UTC)

Year Length? Edit

Not sure whether or not I can get this question answered, but here goes.

Both this article, and Out of the Darkness, state that the Minbari year or cycle is as long as 16 Earth months. But there seems to be a statement in Severed Dreams giving a different year length: Delenn tells a Grey Council aide that she served on the Council for 16 cycles. She was inducted sometime in 2245, and cast out in July 2259 (All Alone in the Night) making ~14 Earth years. That figure would make a Minbari year ~0.875 years long.

Am I misinterpreting the line in Severed Dreams? Or are the episodes contradicting each other? The longer year length seems more plausible given that Minbar is the 7th planet of its solar system. 2601:441:4680:3230:783E:D8A:5E97:AFC1 03:48, April 16, 2019 (UTC)

A Minbari year is 16 Earth Months. Delenn served the Council from late 2232. Hyperbole about standing by them as one of the Nine for 20 cycles, it was when she entered the service of the Council as an acolyte. Out of the Darkness is incorrect, a Minbari cycle is actually LONGER than an Earth year. Terry Jones author of the Babylon 5 Historical DatabaseB5historyman (talk) 08:37, April 16, 2019 (UTC)

Then I did misinterpret Delenn's line. Thank you for clearing it up! 2601:441:4680:3230:783E:D8A:5E97:AFC1 17:33, April 16, 2019 (UTC)
