What is the oddest gift you have been given?

//Many races have traditions of gift giving, but there really is no tradition like this among our race. We do not celebrate birthdays the way many races do, or give gifts for other special occasions.//

\\Some of our allies and minions give us tributes -- those count as gifts...\\

//I suppose. We're not going to whine the way some others have that no one has ever given us presents, though. After all, some have -- and sometimes they have been very nice presents...//

\\The way certain humans surrender to us -- that's a very nice present...\\

There are two odd gifts we have been given.

First, there is the ship full of humans that landed on Z'ha'dum, bringing us an ally, food, and central cores for our ships. We did not expect to receive a gift this useful from the humans, certainly not as special a gift as Morden. He has been a companion, a lover, a spokesman: someone who can be our hands, our mouths, our smiling face which does not frighten the younger races the way our own would.

Second, and probably odder than the first, there is this strange dimensional nexus and time-shift which has given us another chance to talk to the One; to try to change his opinion of the Vorlons; to enlighten him to the other side of the equation... It has caused us other problems, but the opportunity it has given us is too great to ignore. This is a gift from the Universe itself, and one we are most happy to receive. We will not waste this chance...
