    I have some sad news to share with all of you Babylon 5 fans out there. Doug Netter, our fearless leader and executive producer of B5 has passed away and gone beyond the Rim. Doug lived a long an full life and was a driving force behind the series. It was thanks to Doug's tireless efforts that ensured that B5 got a fifth season, even though it meant moving to TNT. He didn't have much give up in him. He was a terrific cheerleader for those who worked with him and he a never afraid to learn new things. It was in large part to his enthusiasm that B5 even made it to the screen.

    Here's a photo of Joe, Doug and myself celebrating our first Hugo win.
    According to IMDB he was 95.

      JMS's plea to the universe was not heard unfortunately... it is really sad to see how many cast and crew members B5 lost during the last years...

        RIP. He lived a long life.. unlike so many others from B5, so it's not so bad news.

            It is my understanding that Doug Netter was instrumental in getting B5 sold. So my thanks to him and my condolences to his family. RIP.

              I must admit that 95 is a good long life. He is definitely one of those people I would have loved to have a conversation with about the show. R.I.P.

                Rest in peace. I enjoyed your science fiction and I'll always remember you as President Santiago.

                    I suggest you enjoy the memories you may have and lift a glass in his honor. And if it is a vodka martini with at least three olives, Doug will be smiling.
