  • RIP Robin Sachs

    I'm sorry to pass on the word that Robin Sachs has passed away, as confirmed by his website:

    This is a post we never thought we would have to write…

    It is with great sadness that we have to announce the sudden and unexpected passing of Robin Sachs.

    Please join us in raising a glass to Robin – goodbye, dear friend. Thank you for all the laughter and the cookies. We will miss you so very much.

    Di, Sharon and everyone at
    At least one site I found said that it happened Feb. 1.

    He enriched the B5 universe.

      Definitely sad news. He was also the voice of Zaeed from Mass Effect

        So many B5 regulars now beyond the rim. Sad news indeed.

        Did you guys know he was in a Voyager episode called "General Valen", go figure!
        Captain John Sheridan: I really *hate* it when you do that.

        Kosh: Good!

          I liked him in 'Galaxy Quest' too.

            Oh my goodness, I was just reading about him last night.... What a shock.
            I hope his loved ones find at least some small comfort in knowing how much he meant to us.

              I raise my Babylon 5 shot glass, containing a shot of fine Highland Park single malt, to Robin Sachs as well as the Babylon 5 cast and crew who have gone beyond the rim before him, including:

              Ivanova ("Soul Hunter"): From the stars we came. To the stars we return, from now until the end of time. We therefore commit this body to the deep.
              Mac Breck (KoshN)
              Warner Brothers is Lucy.
              JMS and we fans are collectively Charlie Brown.
              Babylon 5 is the football.
