Revisiting an old favourite for scifiland: Commander Susan Ivanova, the all-knowing, uber-competent, semi-telepathic XO of Babylon 5.
Second-in-Command of Babylon 5
"And just one more thing. On your trip back I want you to take the time to learn the Babylon 5 mantra. Ivanova is always right. I will listen to Ivanova. I will not ignore Ivanova's recommendations. Ivanova is God. And, if this ever happens again, Ivanova will personally rip your lungs out! Babylon control out."
Voice of the Resistance
"Captain, the day something happens around here and I don't know about it, worry."
Susan Ivanova's Love Life (Or Lack Thereof)
"All love is unrequited."
From One Soldier to Another
"Who am I? I am Susan Ivanova, Commander. Daughter of Andre and Sophie Ivanov. I am the right hand of vengeance and the boot that is going to kick your sorry ass all the way back to Earth, sweetheart! I am death incarnate, and the last living thing that you will ever see. God sent me."
General to Anla'shok Na
"I've always had this dream of retiring to a beach somewhere. Someplace where no one could find me. Not the bureaucrats, not the sales guys, not anybody. I think I could plant myself by a river, or a beach, and look out over the water, and never, ever want to leave."
