      Giving this another bump because I don't want any new eyes lurking around the Forums to miss it. If you are not aware of what the B5Books Team is doing, you should be.

        Thought I would give it another 'BUMP' to make sure all of our new friends don't miss it.

          Critical note from Captain Jaclyn:

          CRITICAL NOTE FROM CAPTAIN JACLYN
          We have adjusted the final release date for the Babylon 5 Encyclopedia. It is now September 30, 2017, about 90 days later than planned.

          This is my fault. I under-estimated the time to go through all the images being supplied by Production Designer John Iacovelli, one of our many sources.

          Instead of the 6,500 images estimated we are instead scanning 37,000 frames of negatives at 4,000 dpi which then have to be individually cataloged.

          When you experience the depth and breadth of the images I hope you'll agree it was time well spent. That said, I feel bad that my miscalculation is going to disappoint fans. I want everyone to know how genuinely sorry I am.
          If you have any questions or feedback email me at [email protected] or click here.

                  So what nickname are we going to give these elite five fans with the backups? Zathri is okay, but can we do better? Do we need to come up with a plan to have the backups handed down from fan to fan or generation to generation? Are we all going to have to move close to one of the five backups to keep a particular guardian safe? Do we need to come up with some elite strike force security team for these five people akin to the Secret Service? Will the backups be hidden in five super secret secure locations around the world including underground fortresses and airships that never land? A thousand years from now will these original five fans have accumulated millions of followers around the globe sworn to keep the backups safe? Will the backups become the most sought after treasure the world has ever known? Will our ancestors have to follow ancient maps to discover the secret hiding places of the backups?

                  Point being when I think about it I really don't want the responsibility and pressure of being one of these chosen few. What if I crack? What if some super villain decides their organization must possess all five backups at any cost? What if the world falls into chaos? What if the sun explodes? . . . I really didn't need to hear about this today.

                    I take it there will be 5 backups. "Rangers" comes to mind for the keepers when I read your text. I started thinking about Deconstruction of Falling Stars with the Rangers coming back to Earth and the search for ancient knowledge.

                      I'm fond of Team Zathri, personally. And I'm betting you wouldn't be surprised to hear that 'generational Zathri' has come up in conversation, would you? And remember, it's 'at least' 5. Could be more.

                        Nope I'm not surprised at that at all. I would however be surprised nay shocked if you were not one of the five.
                        All generalizations are false, including this one.

                          I don't think anything's definite but I must say that I'm *not* (to put it mildly) technologically inclined so while I might at some point be appointed a 'holder of the sacred chalice...' oh, wait...wrong show...holder of the data, at no point should anybody expect me to be able to *do* anything with it.

                            So we could all get the backups?!?!?!?!?!?!

                            And I think you have to accept the mantle High Priestess of The Zathri because I believe fate is definitely knocking on your door Jan.

                              I think fate knocked on my door in the fall of 1996 (1997? can't remember) and I discovered JMS interacting with fans on AOL.
