    Maybe saying it was the opposite of "can't" was just a fancy way ot telling the interviewer that there is a new B5 project in the works. Just a thought
    Yeah, I think the simpler explanation to all of the clues is really the best. Around May 15, WB (the studio) will make an announcement and the deal is done (read "in the can").

    Recall that JMS is speaking in Vorlon here...and whenever Kosh spoke, everyone always wanted to read more into what he was saying than there was, thinking there were hidden meanings. Usually Kosh just spoke in very simple terms and phrases that sounded cryptic but usually meant exactly what he said.

    Double-speak...JMS is a king at it and it really fires us up.

    Like I said, once the announcement comes we'll simultaneously slap our foreheads and say, "DOH!"



    And for what it's worth, I am pretty firm in my conclusion that this a feature film project of some kind. Although...I'll say I was wrong if I am

      Maybe the clue will come as part of a collector's set of Pepsi CANS which each have a different word on them that we have to put together to make a phrase . . . of course, it would take a real slimeball to try something THAT sleazy . . .

        He said CAN

        IGNFF: What do you think is the lasting legacy of B5?

        JMS: The creation of the five-year arc, and a story that has touched millions of people around the world in ways that in many cases actually changed their lives. It's a story that says the average person has power, that we CAN fight city hall and win, that one person CAN make a difference, and in a society and a culture that marginalizes and trivializes and factionalizes us, I think that's a desperately important lesson.

        IGNFF: What is the future of the B5 universe?

        JMS: Wait about a month and you'll find out. The clue is in the opposite of can't.
        Of course the opposite of can't is can. But I see it in the context of his previous answer... B5 CAN have a continuation that is succesful.
        Maybe I'm being too simple-minded?
        Such... is the respect paid to science that the most absurd opinions may become current, provided they are expressed in language, the sound of which recalls some well-known scientific phrase

          Not at all. The question is how long will that continuation be?

          May jms live a long, long, long, long, very, very long life.

          Very long.

            Nope. You are talking the literal (and therefor the likeliest) explanation.

            One that is less fun, however, for those of us how like to pretend for our own amusement that JMS always talks like a Vorlon (when he isn't talking like Zathras, of course).
            I believe that when we leave a place, part of it goes with us and part of us remains. Go anywhere in the station, when it is quiet, and just listen. After a while, you will hear the echoes of all our conversations, every thought and word we've exchanged. Long after we are gone .. our voices will linger in these walls for as long as this place remains. But I will admit .. that the part of me that is going .. will very much miss the part of you that is staying.

              Lets try not to over-complicate the statement to death. Yes, his answers CAN be elusive at times, however, this answer is CLEARLY not one of those times....

              Ok, there are at least two possiblities here: Is he saying the opposite is ''can'' or ''won't''. Yes, obviously he's saying ''won't''? Why? Think about it. Obviously he *wants* to continue the B5 saga, so there must be some external force making him *want* the EXACT opposite.

              People, the above statement is complete horsesh$t. Take into account the ''making a difference'' speech, then use that while interpreting the opposite of cant.

              Of course anything is possible. But only an idiot looks at everything crosseyed through his a$$.
