  1. I always kind of wondered about how the Psi Cops and the upper levels of Psi Corps worked. From his assignments, Bester appears to be a sort of a lead investigator, for lack of a better term. From a traditional police standpoint, maybe a Detective Sergeant or possibly Lieutenant (although that’s a bit high for field work). However, he seems to have way more inside information about the Psi Corps plots and plans, including apparently being in on some of the decision making.

    Is he a high level operative who has a cover as a field operative simply because there are certain things they don’t want the rank and file to know? Alternately, is his official rank/job accurately what he is, but like Garibaldi, sticks his nose everywhere he can to learn everything about the people he’s working with?

    I think I like the latter interpretation as it highlights the “not so different” aspects of these enemies. I’ve always enjoyed that sort of thing and Babylon has it in spades when it comes to Londo and G’Kar.
