Babylon 5 Lost Tales – How Fans Literally Saved The New Show March 12, 2007

Posted by showmescifi in b5, babylon 5, babylon5, scifi.

The original Babylon 5 Series is one of the best (if not the best) SciFi series of all time.

After nearly a decade in which we have seen no main story B5 shows or’s finally coming back, thanks in no small part to the efforts of fans like you and me.

Apparently alot was lost by Warner Bros after the original series completed its on air run.

Ironically, it was the fan base that came to the rescue.
J. Michael Straczynski creator and writer of the B5 franchise found this twist ironic.

In a recent interview he said:

“We created the show initially, then the fans created their version, then we had to go to the fans to make the show again.” Full circle.

But what about the story?

Well for one this isn’t the ill fated B5 Crusade which was never properly finished. Though the Technomage Galen does make an appearance.

In segment one, Sheridan is en route to Babylon 5 for the 10th anniversary of the founding of the Interstellar Alliance, when he picks up an unexpected guest, and segment two follows Lochley on Babylon 5 preparing for Sheridan’s arrival. Each runs about 35 minutes.

Personally i can hardly wait for Lost Tales. There is no better SciFi scriptwriter alive today then J. Michael Straczynski.
