    I got to second all suggestions for a Babylon 4 story and one about the Telepath war.

    The first one big and epic, lots of Shadows and Vorlons, and the second very much like the lovechild of Tinker, tailor, soldier spy and the Manchurian candidate. That is very thriller and spyish with the occasional creeping shadow horror.

    A horror thriller version of the Icarus last Flight.

    A Mars series, prequel or post B5, maybe with characters as Sinclair, Garibaldi, No 1, Liana. It could both include the struggle against Earth and/or during the President Clarke martial law, Psi Corps and Major company espionage, IPX expeditions and of course some nasty shadow horror thing on the loose. I would like a Mars Noir

    The Adventures of the Explorer ship Cortez


    The B5 universe is so large the supply of potential stories is almost endless

    Yes it might be a hard sell as a theatrically wide released movie, but it would definitely be a well received LOST TALE.
    If we want to see indepth views to medieval society, I defintly would prefer stories around brother Alwyn and the far future rangers.

    Having said that, if I remember correctly, some people here raised a valid point that with no humans in the First Shadow War, that type of story/movie would likely not be made. Likely the only people who would go and see that type of story/movie would be existing B5 Universe fans.
    Not quite true.
    The only people who would go and see that type of story/movie would be Minbari people.

    Wait, isn't this a semi-story idea?

    But ok. Let's see: 1260 AD....

    I think... It really could be...
    When we look at this 1260 stone relief(*), it's obvious that we see the procession for a late Minbari leader (s.o. like Branmer).
    Beside his head two warrior caste members and in front two religious caste members.



    It proves us, that in these early days (1260) not only the Vorlons but the Minbari had first encounters on earth.

    (*) the earth fake science claims this should be the 1260 funeral of Louis 1st King of France.

    Was younger Kosh really that much younger? LOL

    Truth66, Ubik and Looney, you argue quite weightful.
    But/And think about this:

    Because I yesterday picked up the "LOST TALES" in my B5 rerun, it seems a good time to post in this thread.

    I will insist on my "no story ideas" but present my "actor ideas". <HEHE>

    The produced Lost Tales are centered to specific main actors.
    "Over Here" is focused on Cpt. Lochley (Tracy Scoggins)
    "Over There" is focused on President Sheridan (Bruce Boxleitner)
    As we all know, JMS had planned a third Lost Tale focused on Garibaldi (Jerry Doyle).

    So, there is obviously this scheme.
    What let me guide strictly to my Lost Tales wishes.

    It's very sad there never will be Lost Tales dedicated to:
    Garibaldi (Jerry Doyle), Dr. Franklin (Richard Biggs), G'Kar (Andreas Katsulas), Vir (Stephen Furst), Cmdr. Sinclair/Valen (Michael O'Hare), Sec.Chief Zack Allen (Jeff Conaway), Zathras/ZaThras/ZathraS (Tim Choate) and others...

    But what about
    a Lost Tale focused on Delenn as Ranger One or ISA President (Mira Furlan)
    a Lost Tale focused on Ivanova as EF General or Ranger One (Claudia Christian)
    a Lost Tale focused on Psi-Cop Bester (Walter Koenig)
    a Lost Tale focused on old emperor Londo Mollari (Peter Jurasik)
    a Lost Tale focused on Lyta Alexander (Patricia Tallman)

    This in the first run.
    But that's not all, I wish.

    What about
    a Lost Tale focused on Lennier (Bill Mumy): "Whatever happened to Lennier"
    a Lost Tale focused on Mr. Morden (Ed Wasser) - well, a bit unlikely
    a Lost Tale focused on Ranger Marcus (Jason Carter) after a hughe progress in healing.
    a Lost Tale focused on Talia Winters (Andrea Thompson) - back in time...
    a Lost Tale focused on Ranger David Martel (Dylan Neal) - btw. good performing at "Cedar Cove"
    a Lost Tale focused on Draal (Louis Turenne) - what the heck is the Great Machine doing when B5 was blown up?

    And beeing curious...
    a Lost Tale focused on the guy who turned of the light: would he've started a new career on Mars? At Earth Dome Central? At the PSi Corps headquarter?
    Nice to know.

    OK. That's all for NOW.

    I honestly think we're past the point where the original cast would be able to convincingly reprise their roles within the B5 timeline as we know it (unless it was appropriately forward shifted to naturally age with them). However, I'm nit picking, this thread is for having fun and letting your imagination run wild. Just pretend you have access to the full cast at an appropriate age!
    I agree with what Ubik is saying for SOME of the possible tales that could be told. I don't think we could convincingly get much of the actual Telepath War with the remaining cast members. BUT I feel there are plenty of stories to tell post VOICES IN THE DARK leading up to SIL and a few that could take place in a time frame just prior to VOICES IN THE DARK. So I think there are plenty of LOST TALES that could take place in the time frame of post Telepath War that could be pulled off with remaining cast members looking like they have aged a bit.

    I do think we deserve to, at a minimum, have The Telepath War as an audio drama, as well as Crusade. There are a few added impediments to The Telepath War with the passing of Doyle, but I'm sure JMS could find away to reference the characters without actually needing the characters.

    Here is a question I've been thinking on with this speculation. Do we know for certain that Talia is dead? We know what Bester said, but as was immediately pointed out he was trying to provoke and emotional response. As I've stated before, I've never read the canon books so I don't know if this point was ever brought up, but a reintroduction of Talia could be a big bombshell. I know that delves into the realm of forbidden fruit here,

    but I only mention the possibility without any real details of how. You can speculate any character who you did not actually see pass Beyond The Rim on camera is still out there.

    Far too many of the B5 actors have gone beyond the rim.

    So thinking of more Lost Tales. Outside the obvious tales I'd like to see one where Ivanova returns. You know it had to happen at some point so why not see it play out in a Lost Tale.

    How about something with Ta'Lon as the, now senior, Amabassador from Narn?

    How about a Lost Tale where the now Independent Mars Colony was forced to deal with alien invasion and Earth Force refuses to come to their aid? (Serves those Mars-ies right!)

    If JMS wanted to do a standalone then maybe Zack could deal with a murder mystery.

    If he wanted to be topical Lochley could have to deal with a terrorist threat. (I guess she kind of already did in the Voices in The Dark. )

    So we're all agreed that, at a minimum, JMS should go back to Comics and force Warner Brothers to give us The Lost Tales Comics, or at least a set of books.

    Well, well, well.
    Form and content is on the edge, I think. But...

    Suffering very hard all the years down the road, cause I couldn't tell others my ideas and hopes for possible future B5 <sniff>,
    I now will remember this one.

    With threefold no budget my no story ideas projects will start up immediately.
