    There's another person with the initials JMS that we all know?

    Why? Might they be controversial?

    Happy to help. I also note that The 2 produced Fiona scripts plus the one Peter David script leaves ten produced JMS scripts. Add in his two unproduced scripts and 'A Call to Arms' and voila', you've got 2 seven-hour script books just as the tradition has been. Assuming he does it that way, of course. 'A Call to Arms' might end up in a movie volume instead.

    However it works, I'm quite looking forward to the behind-the-scenes stories of Crusade!

    Thanks Jan. I knew about Value Judgments but was unaware that she also wrote WoF and PotS. Ironically, I'm very non-observant about that kind of thing.

    How many scripts would that be?

    Well, I'm no expert in the whole Cafe' Press thing but I know that they have incentives that they pay (or credit? Not sure) to high-volume sellers. How would you determine what portion of an incentive would go to whom when it's calculated on (I assume) the entire volume of sales for a given period. That would include all of the quote gear. A payment of a fraction of the price per book sold would be easiest but not necessarily fair and you'd still need to calculate how many books were sold at the discount period versus how many sold for full price. And which party would pay for the extra bookkeeping involved?

    In addition, the writers have the right to publish their own scripts. In order for him to publish anybody else's scripts, they'd have to transfer that right to him, temporarily at least, and for that sort of thing there's generally lawyers involve.

    JMS said from the beginning:

    going out and making separate deals with everybody else would be a
    major pain in the butt just given the logistics.
    ...and he knows a whole lot more about it, I'm sure.

    Please forgive my ignorance, but why would it be a financial nightmare? I understand they would have to decide on how to exactly split the profits, but why would this be more of a nightmare than any other project that requires profits to be split between multiple people?

    I know it was only possible to get the JMS scripts published in the B5 script books, but I kind of hope they will manage to get the one unfilmed script that was written by Fiona Avery in there somehow for the Crusade books. With the demise of bookface there is no way to get a hold of it any more, and I'm sure Avery wouldn't be totally averse to setting up some deal that would allow them do so under the script publication rights she has under the separation of rights agreement.

    That said, he has said that when the Crusade script books come out, that he'll include his notes so we can get an idea of how it was going to change.
