Space Ripper

I caught an episode of the old sci-fi series Babylon 5 today, and was pleasantly surprised to find that it featured Jack, who is apparently still alive in 2259, although not up to his old tricks.

I don't think he killed Ratliff, but if he did and got away with it, maybe a random owl attack was just karma's way of levelling the score. Or maybe he trained a bird of prey to attack his wife, who...
