Ed,

Talia Winters is not a Psi Cop. Both Talia Winters (Andrea Thompson) and Lyta Alexander (Patricia Tallman ) were licensed, commercial telepaths from Earth and a member of the Psi Corps organization.

Alfred Bester (Walter Koenig) was the most notable Psi Cop on "Babylon 5".

From Wikipedia:
He is a senior Psi Cop and a recurring antagonist in the series. J. Michael Straczynski named the character after the science fiction writer Alfred Bester,[1] since telepathy is a recurring theme in his work (most notably The Demolished Man, which partly may have inspired the Psi corps and the "death of personality" legal punishment in the Babylon 5 universe).

Had a hard time choosing between Agent Carter and Garibaldi, and it came down to deciding what "best" means.  The former is a flashy, impressive character that's fun to see in charge and I think she deserved a longer run on a higher quality platform.

The latter was a more fleshed-out character who played an important emotional role in a MUCH more fleshed out universe.   The interactions he had with other characters tended to carry much greater depth and poignancy.

I must conclude that Garibaldi has left a deeper, longer lasting impression on me, so old white guy it is.

Thank you for commenting Honored Mule. I agree. Agent Carter was cancelled too soon.
