    Looks like he won't have anything he feels is sufficiently ready in time for NYCC:

    The cgi won't be sufficiently finished to bring anything of substance,
    and we don't do the final audio mix until March, and I'm leery of
    bringing anything that isn't balanced. (Well, with the exception of me
    but I don't have much choice there.)

    We are, however, planning to do a lot of stuff for San Diego, including
    a trailer made just for SDCC (with an intro I recorded on the stages in
    Vancouver), a director's blog, and perhaps some other googies. But
    nothing of that for NYCC, I'm afraid, with the possible exception of
    maybe one or two of the blogs, if they're sufficiently done by then.

    Funny, I asked that same question. Let's see if he stops back to that thread and answers. Hope so, because I'm planning on being there.

    JMS update with release info

    Just found on the moderated group:

    Not much to say at the moment. The studios shut down two weeks ago,
    everybody's on hiatus. The post production process continues apace,
    with animatics having come down before the break for approval so they
    can start the heavy rendering. I came up with an opening set-piece
    which is now being storyboarded out, and we have someone now designing
    a new title sequence as well. We'll just keep doing this until
    February/March, when we do the final mix, with the release date slated
    for the week of July 27th.

    The weekend of July 27 just happens to be the weekend of San Diego Comic Con.

    Discussion of the Rangers pilot? Agreed!

    Some parts I liked and others I certainly did not. I know for a fact that I was guilty of wanting to like it a bit too much for my own judgement. I was not pleased with the effects (and I'm not talking about hyperspace), but we all know the backstory on that anyway. Yes, it had potential. I'll just leave it at that.
    I, too, really wanted to like the Rangers pilot, but just couldn't. Let's just say that a few really nice roses were growing out of that pile.

    Well, it doesn't sound like they made everything up. Check what JMS said in an e-mail that went out to the Scriptbook Mailing list on December 1st. (Scroll down past the pictures for the messages.)

    Or you can click-and-drag on the spoiler box below to see the relevant text:

    This first DVD, entitled "Voices in the Dark," covers the same 72 hour period of time as Sheridan travels on board a Presidential Cruiser en route to Babylon 5 from Minbar for a celebration marking the 10th anniversary of the founding of the Interstellar Alliance. One part of the story follows Sheridan as he picks up an unexpected visitor on the edge of Centauri space, Prince Regent Dius Vintari, and a warning about what will come afterward delivered by the techno-mage, Galen. The other part of the story is set aboard Babylon 5, as Colonel Lochley summons a priest from Earth space to deal with a problem that may have dark supernatural overtones. The two parts of the greater story intersect at certain key plot and thematic points, so that they overlap and complement each other while telling separate, but simultaneous, stories.

    To be fair, there is a pretty obvious candidate of something that could be Galen in there.
    The whole demon possessing someone sounds very much like some Techno-Mage antics.


    But I agree, I would take it with a grain of salt for now.

    You're a sick, twisted individual. I like that in a person.

    That isn't to say limited usage of something isn't acceptable, but 9 times out of 10, "inventors" think they have the greatest thing since sliced bread. They have such a hard on for their own discovery/invention, that they don't realize what crap they are producing.
