  • B-5 Lost Tales/Demon With A Glass Hand

    I had heard at one point during the Bablyon 5 series there was talk of doing a sequel to The Outer Limits episode Demon With A Glass Hand set on Bablyon 5. Nothing ever came of it of course. But now with The Lost Tales series, I wonder if they will devote an episode to this idea.

    Welcome DWNicolo

    I've read people quote Harlan that he never really planned to write a 'Demon' sequal for B5, that it was just an idea that JMS had. I don't have any proof of that, though.

    If it were to happen, I think it's not likely to be in the first few disks. Those will likely be setting the tone and establishing the audience.

      Here's an excerpt from an interview I did with Harlan Ellison during season five. I can't recall where it originaly appeared, but it seemed relevant to the discussion at hand...

      Joe: This season is the first time your name is actually on two of the stories, æA View From the GalleryÆ and æObjects In Motion.Æ How involved were you in these episodes?

      Harlan: TheyÆre my ideas. I got the ideas, and I was actually going to do a script that I had been working on, but Joe, to yank my chain and to make me crazy, told everyone that I was going to write a sequel to æDemon With A Glass Hand,Æ my Outer Limits script. Well, anybody who knows me knows I have never written sequels to anything. In fact, even A Boy and His Dog, which is only one part of a novel, the other two sections of which have been published, theyÆre not sequels, theyÆre just two more sections of that particular novel that IÆve been working on for about 25 years. So Joe told everyone, æYes, Harlan is going to do a script in which Trent from æDemon In A Glass HandÆ will reappear, and weÆre going to get Bob Culp to play him.Æ Everybody has been asking me about it, and I never had any intention at all to do it. The lunatic made it up out of whole cloth! ThatÆs one of the problems of being best friends with somebody: you wind up pulling gags on each other that sometimes come back to bite you in the ass.

        Thanks, Joe. I wonder if perhaps it was something you posted that I'd been thinking of.

          Argh. That's too bad. I always had my fingers crossed we would see that someday, some way...
