Belive, Babylon 5, and the Slippery Slope


Is NBC’s Smash hit Believe, a prequel to Babylon 5?

What dose Bo Adams, cute and gifted 10 year old, have anything to do with J. Michael Straczynski’s space station with aliens in the year 2250. A huge deal!

First off I watch Believe, I am emotionally involved with the characters. I am both delighted and horrified at this story line. Yes, I do have a life. I also love J.J. Abrams work.

So why do I consider this a prequel, two words, “Psi Corps”.

In Believe, Roman Skouras has created a gifted facility funded by the Department of Defense. The “Orchestra Project” he has been cultivating Psychics of every age to create psi weapons. People as weapons. In flashbacks of Bo’s testing, using negative motivation, i.e. electron zaps to her forehead.

So my burning question is this; As Professional Psychics, what length do we go to scientifically proving what we are, gifted individuals, who help our fellow man where we can, that we are not charlatans or con artists. Is it too high a price? To become even more ostracize or more to the point lab rats in the process?

To refresh your memories, in the first season of Babylon 5, we are introduced to Psi Corp with the episode “Get out of head”. We learn The Corp is Mother, the Corp is Father, by removing telepaths from their homes, at any age, to keep “normal” people safe. They are trained, manipulated and matched with another telepath bread better telepaths. Same old propaganda, just a different face.

In the second season of B5, Episode “And Now A word” shows us a propaganda commercial about how wonderful life s in the corp.

So, are we fictionally seeing Pandora’s Box open? How do we make sure that it doesn’t happen real life.

This is an interesting question -- one to which I have no immediate answers -- but if people "knew" for sure about psychic abilities would that also change not only how the gifted were treated but our humanity as well as we might just loose the ability to believe outright
