What is the source of the name "Battlecrab"? Aside from a bts nickname, I can't find any official source for this term. I'd suggest that if a suitable source can't be found that we move this article to "Shadow Vessel" since that's what it's consistently referred to on the show and in the Babylon 5 Security Manual.Blind Wolf 00:26, 13 May 2009 (UTC)

No source has been forthcoming, moving article. Blind Wolf 14:05, 20 May 2009 (UTC)
The Battlecrab name is fan-originated from the discussion groups. Never used in the show, used colloqueally. The shadow beam weapon was called the gisnu beam by fans, a reference to a knife advertised on television that can cut through tomatoes and beer cans with equal effectiveness. 15:16, June 14, 2016 (UTC)

Defenses Edit

I thought that on top of its organic hull it had shields that dispersed energy away from the hull and out the arm things into space or something, and that is what made them so tough. I am pretty sure i read that somwere.Gormagon 21:19, August 11, 2011 (UTC)
