    I know these are not the sort of bloopers you meant, but for anyone interested :BLOOPERS

    No, the CGI is clearly out of synch with the script in multiple places in SD, but that is perfectly understandable given the time constraints they were under. CGI was being done to a different script than the shooting, and there was no time to recover from that. It is of the stuff that makes the endeavor so endearing.

    I did a little checking, and even though I couldn't find the comment in the archive here, I did find this in the episode guide over on the Lurker's Guide. They quoted JMS there as saying...
    I have to recant my correction.
    The image as shown in the monitor was supposed to be shown *only* on the monitor, not blown up. The animators figured, it'll be too small to read the name on it, so we may as well grab a ship out of the library rather than building a new one (a sensible choice)...but when John and I got into editing, we grabbed the original video and did that close-up...and neither of us, NObody, ever even noticed the Aggy name until after it was mentioned here...and I then checked, and to my chagrin, it was there.

    But in true Soviet Revisionist fashion, you can be assured that down the road, this will mysteriously be replaced by another shot....

    For some reason I am remembering the same thing, in addition to the glitch discussed in the Lurker's Guide (showing the Churchill getting hit but the impact is felt on the Alexander). The one I recall is the Agrippa, and how that name was briefly visible on a destroyer moments after it had supposedly been destroyed. I swear I remember reading this somewhere, but damned if I can find it now.
    IIRC, in "Moments of Transition" at the end when the EF cruisers attack civillian transports, a cruiser was misidentified as the Agememnon. It was only supposed to be shown on the display in Sheridan's office, so they didn't bother to update the ID on the ship. No one wouldv'e been able to tell. JMS didn't really want the Aggy attacking civillian transports, though. Might this be the one you guys were thinking of?

    No, but Sheridan calls on a dead ship to surrender and ignores the live one. Also, Churchill takes a hit but the interior reaction is aboard Alexander

    The one that made me even look it up on the net was in 'Comes The Inquisitor' where Sheridan talks to Sebastian and mixes up east/west side. He obviously originally says 'west side', but the voice on the DVD version says 'east side', which is correct.

    The Lurker's Guide has the following story to tell about this one:
    JMS:

    What happened is...basically...Joe is a moron.

    I did my research. I called up the info on the encyclopedia, got all the dates right, and my eyes saw East End and for whatever stupid, idiotic reason, my fingers typed West instead of East, and nobody, NObody, caught it until now. I'd loop it, but alas the line is on his face, and it'd look real stupid, and the delivery is *so* perfect as it is; if we looped it, we'd destroy it.

    So I content myself with the notion that it's west...of B5.

    Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to go shoot myself.
    I do think this qualifies as blooper

    Besides, perfection is boring. It's the imperfections that make it more *real*.

    Severed Dreams is the episode that JMS said was in post-production till the last possible second and I believe it. I have a Director's Cut tape that's dated a week before the show aired. It's quite raw. The color isn't corrected and there's *no* music at all. The effects are mostly there but one can tell there's a lot of sound and color editing that needed to be done. JMS said that:

    When producer George Johnson saw the scrpt for #10, "Severed Dreams," he laughed, walked over to me and said, "Boy, this is the best episode we're never gonna deliver. ARE YOU NUTS?!"
    So I'm not surprised there were shortcuts that left errors.

    I'm loving this thread! Going to have to print it and go through the DVDs as instructed! And it's an affectionate poke, I think. B5 wasn't perfect but it sure pushed the envelope.

    There's a bit of an ironic one in No Surrender, No Retreat...the EA symbols on the destroyers are a mirror image in some shots. More of an effects glitch.

    In "Signs and Portents", after the on-station raider guy shoots the two Centauri guards, they remain in the background for one camera angle (after they're down).
