    I've posed a question to Jan in the B5tv forum about JMS' attitude when discussing this and hopefully I can share her answer here about it when I get one. Unless, of course, you want to post your answer here as well, Jan
    I can do that. Hope you don't mind that it's the same one on both forums :-):

    I can only hope that this resistance and prejudice, though I knew it existed, doesn't in any way deter JMS or cause problems for JMS, B5 and the future. But I have to say it's wonderful to know that the buzz and hype seem to be overshadowing anything negative.

    Hopefully, JMS will hold his own and maintain his patience and the resistance will decrease over time. To those of you who were there, how did he say that part? Was it with that "I'm sick of this superiority complex of theirs and getting tired of it more and more each day"? Or "It's there, but not a big deal and getting better," sort of way?

    What was his demeanor like when talking about that particular issue?

    And as for the ST comment...I find that VERY INTERESTING. And a little part of me wants to go Whoooohoooooo!

    I guess time will tell.

    One last question: He wouldn't elaborate on the Ides of May comment I see, but did he seem to be of the attitude that it wouldn't still be around that date?

    Thanks for the info and postings!

    I've been kicking myself that I can't recall the exact word he used. His manner wasn't upset that I could tell, more of a 'here's another oddity of this business that doesn't make much sense' attitude. I didn't get the feeling that it's a major battle.

    All he'd say was that it was in the hands of the Powers that Be and he'd be in hot water if he said anything. Now, knowing how precise JMS tends to be, I remind folks that his post said "Starting around the Ides of May..." not *on* that date. He never promises anything that's out of his control.

      Only time will tell

      Maybe it will be announced in some WB press events.

      In near future one possibility is Cannes (12-23 May). Also if i'm not mistaken, WB press event is being held this weekend (in Burbank if i remember correcty, although i think it's TV only).

        Thanks again Jan for the quick response!

        I hope you don't mind that I post the same thing here that I did at B5tv about spreading the word!

        If you all recall the comment I made in this forum previously that it's up to us, the fans, now to spread the word, well, I've posted a poll over at www.sg1archive.com about B5. Everyone head over there, join up and post a positive response to the the poll.

        It's in the off-topic discussion and called "Babylon 5 poll, What do you think of B5 and the new film".


        There are some wishy washy types there who aren't convinced and some who haven't seen it really. If such a poll were overwhelmingly positive for B5 (and there are some fans there who've voted positively) we might be able to convince some SG-1 fans to take a first (or even second) look at B5.

        Help us out!
