    It reminds me, I have just received my copies of the Crusade Books, Other Voices Vol.2 and Behind the scenes.
    The artworks in it, particulary Other Voices are just awesome ! (I wanted to wait to receive Vol.1 in January but couldn't wair ).
    I've always loved seeing the attention to detail that went into the show, even for scenes that only showed for a second or two.

    I'm not sure if I've ever posted these here before. As many/most know, back when JMS was selling the show he had some artwork done by Peter Ledger. One piece was a large painting of the core of the station. JMS sold that painting to a fan during his 'garage sale' several years ago. That fan, in an effort to help with the fundraising for Rick Biggs' family had (iirc) five high quality giclee' prints of that painting made and I auctioned them on Ebay. In thanks, he gifted me with one of the test prints. Here's some detail from that painting.

      Wow,
      Jan, it's a nice example of synchronization. Just the other day I was rereading an old article of Cinefantastique, and they had a little thumbnail with that same artwork and i wondered what the whole image looked like !
      I love the retro-futuristic look of it, i always found it was a shame that (i guess due to budget reason) we could see so little of the core : when we see it, like at the end of season 2, you could see lakes, forests, etc... the painting is amazing ! Knowing the story behind it is all the more nice, thank you for sharing !
      I was also looking for details about the very big black-and-white painting that was in the background of the casino, it was such a beautiful painting. It is on B5-20, unfortunately, the archive photo was taken with a big red ladder just in front of it lol, I often wondered what has become of it after the show ended.

        I'd love to know, too - though I fear that it may have been destroyed when the dismantled the Casino set for the War Room.
        ETA: I tweeted JMS to ask if he knows.

        And you're very welcome. That was such a great gift that the buyer gave me when I was more than happy to help out.
