Fans of the late "Babylon 5" television series have reason to rejoice. Two of the science-fiction program's stars appear in this tongue-in-cheek sci-fi adventure. Claudia Christian plays Annie Manx, a cop who discovers that death doesn't stop her. Patricia Tallman plays Lieutenant Richman, a military megalomaniac trying to take over the galaxy. Author Larry Weiner portrays a lame-duck political leader whose daughter has been kidnapped by a pair of dim-witted criminals. LIVES OF THE CAT is a funny, well-acted performance that celebrates its silliness without sacrificing production quality. This high-end spoof may remind listeners of ZBS's "Ruby" radio-plays, with its humor, techno-noir tone, and strong female characters. S.E.S. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/NOV 00]
