The name for this blog comes from a several sources. Centauri is from our closest galactic neighbor Alpha Centauri and also the Centauri Republic from Babylon 5. I always found Ambassador Londo Mollari to be a fascinating if tragic character. The Files part is from The Rockford Files, a 1970s detective series staring James Garner. This is was a favorite from my youth and I still watch reruns whenever available.
