    This is going to be good.

    Oh my god oh my god oh my god! That's all I can say. I'm very excited that we get new continuity right after objects at rest, and I'm even more excited that we get to see more Sinclair and Marcus. Like I just posted on rastb5m, I'd much rather them take their time and get it right then rush it. Although not taking time means they can push out more b5 product faster...hmm...

      Ooo! Sinclair on Minbar would be nice and fun. (Of course, I know most people are going to gasm over the idea of seeing him in the past during the historical Minbari-Shadow War, and that'd be fun too. )

        I wouldnt be at all supprized if a story or two wasnt written about Sinclair on Minbar for possible use in the series. Alot of the arc stories that didnt feature regularly had "reminders" like the sector 14 alien in Knives.

        • Delenn in power mode

          This is looking very promising indeed. I've always liked those scenes where Delenn switches from poised, calm and elegant to showing how powerful and strong she can be, while still remaining so poised and elegant . Often leaving poor old Sheridan metaphorically gasping for breath.

          Hope jms includes some more of those!!!

            I think it could be cool to set an episode during/after Crusade.

              Just posted on the Moderated Newsgroup:

              Title: B5:TLT update from jms
              Author: [email protected]
              Date: 3 Oct 2006 00:17:35 -0700
              Message-ID: <[email protected] .com>

              I'm kind of up against it right now on an assortment of deadlines, so
              this'll be quick, but I did want to address some of the questions that
              have been asked.

              Yes, we're shooting this HD, so this is going to be quite a learning
              curve for me as a director, since I've never shot HD before. There's
              also a HUGE amount of green-screen involved, so again, lots of learning
              to be done.

              For those who are getting the B5 scripts books -- and eventually the
              B5:TLT scripts will be released -- you'll notice a substantial
              difference between them and these scripts in that I decided to kind of
              direct them on the page more than usual: calling out specific angles
              and camera directions, locations and setups more than in any prior B5
              script. It probably resembles an animation script more than a standard
              TV script, because it incorporates my directorial notes, shot for shot,
              as we go.

              The first three-segment DVD is called "Voices in the Dark." We've
              narrowed down the cast, and hope to have their deals closed this week.
              There are already ten crew members working on this thing up in
              Vancouver, pulling together stages, offices and other prep work. The
              first day of shooting will likely be either November 13th or 14th (due
              to a Canadian holiday). The last twiddlings to the script should be
              done by this coming Monday. Storyboarding starts the end of this week.

              It's balls-to-the-wall right now, but it should be fun in the end.

                          Whoooop....I posted the JMS deal to the crew returning thread without reading this one first. Serves me right for posting before I've had my coffee Shoulda known you'd be on top of things Jan!

                          Either way, I think the time for those who are skeptical about it actually happening to come on board. It's pretty darn real now.

                            In the past DVDs and cassettes were always issued a month late so assume July 2007.

                                Well, if they'd make it available, we would order it. Don't forget, one of the first hints Warner Bros. had of B5's sales potential on DVD came when Amazon.com accidentally listed the original doulbe-feature movie disc for pre-order early. They posted it on the site about 2 AM Eastern Time on a Saturday morning and by Sunday night it was in the Amazon top 60 or so. There was not publicity, no advertising, no official announcement, just word of web after some fan stumbled across the listing. After a day or two somebody at Amazon.com realized their mistake and pulled the listing. But within 24 hours it was back up (Warner Bros. having realized that the cat was out of the bag and also having seen the numbers.) And the rest - as they say - is history.
