  • New news about B5

    Just found this at Tachyon TV:


    Babylon 5 newsgroups were buzzing yesterday when JMS made yet another veiled comment about a secret B5 spin-off: "I don't want to give anything away but a straight-to-video sized window of opportunity just opened up!
    Probably as much news as we'll get this year...

    Interesting?

    Is this TMOS or a totally different project?

    JMS can be such a tease.
    I have the wings for Bingo.

      Shr'eshhhhhh: Tachyon TV is parody news site. Check http://www.tachyon-tv.co.uk/index2.htm and their back issues. Lost it since my last format this summer, back to favorites

        Umm...I doubt it. It wasn't on the moderated newsgroup and, in the longish post he made this morning, that wasn't part of it.

        Unfortunately, no news on TMoS was in the post either.

          "Paul Thomas Anderson's version of Aliens Versus Predator wows critics, especially the scene where the xeomorphs sing along to Aimee Mann."

            Hey IamS

            You forgot this all too important news bit in the same issue:
            IN THE SHOPS

            Return of the King Special Edition DVD: promises a whole feast of extras, including 17 alternative endings. Oh sorry, that was the theatrical release...

            I, Robot Shoe box set DVD: with a free pair of Converse trainers.

            Grand Theft Auto - San Andreas Katsulas: play the car-jacking G'Kar as the Narn goes crazy on your shit in the middle of mid-90s LA. With a pumping soundtrack by Chris Franke.
            Such... is the respect paid to science that the most absurd opinions may become current, provided they are expressed in language, the sound of which recalls some well-known scientific phrase

                My guess - a short animated story

                JMS had mentioned a little earlier about a TMOS related project that is also going ahead. My guess is that it will be a short straight-to-video animated story that can serve as a preview of the B5 universe for the un-initiated and to create a little buzz (similar to the animated releases that accompanied Van Helsing and Riddick).

                Anyway, those are my psychic $0.02...
                Paraphrasing Marcus:
                I find it a great comfort that the Universe is NOT fair. Imagine if it were and all the bad things that happened to you really WERE your fault

                  that can serve as a preview of the B5 universe for the un-initiated
                  Tom Smith's song Five Years does a good job of that.
                  Sorta.


                  Tom Smith Online

                  Five Years
                  Words: ® 1998 by Tom Smith, from an idea by Tom Smith and Leslie Larkins
                  Music: "One Week" by Ed Robertson

                  It's been... five years since we went online,
                  Laurel Takashima's gone, but Susan's so fine,
                  Five years since the Vorlon came,
                  Someone tried to kill him, Sinclair didn't take the blame.
                  Twelve years since we held the Line,
                  Twenty-four hours missing outta Jeff's mind,
                  Yesterday, it went off TV.,
                  But it'll still be okay, 'cause we got the story.

                  Oh my God, how it enthralled me, with Garibaldi,
                  He's getting' balder every season.
                  He got attacked, his buddy Jack, he went and shot him in the back,
                  To keep on track the planned assassination/treason.
                  Hot like Ivanova and Talia, we're gonna Draal ya,
                  And then we'll kick a little Zathras,
                  Al Bester's in the Psi Corps, we got a mind war,
                  Ironheart's the mower and you're the grass.
                  Lennier and Vir will share a beer and watch Adira disappear,
                  Without her, Londo's Morden likely bound for darkness,
                  So it begins, and then Delenn will spin Triluminary
                  Thin and glowing spiderwebs and step into the Chrysalis.

                  G'Kar is helpless, then he's hostile, then a holy man,
                  Trying hard not to smile in front of Sheridan,
                  I'm the kinda guy who laughs at the Shadow horde,
                  Can't understand, then you're not a three-edged sword,
                  I have a tendency to do my thinking with my hands,
                  I have a history of taking off my gloves.

                  It's been... five years since Third Age began,
                  John met Delenn, but Anna would be back again,
                  Five years since we met Neroon,
                  He ended up a hero, started out a major loon,
                  Three years since the Shadow War,
                  Nastier than any aliens we've seen before,
                  Yesterday, all the Narns were freed,
                  But there is something still Keeping hold on Centauri.

                  Medieval Marcus, the Rescue Ranger,
                  Lorien shows up, and things get stranger,
                  Watching out the window of a White Star, it came from Minbar,
                  And then we'll steal Babylon Four.
                  Sinclair's fork would be a Valen Tine, he travels through time,
                  And Ba-Bear-Lon Five is too cute.
                  Lyta comes back and she's eyin' a guy named Byron,
                  And Reebo in a Zooty Zoot Suit.
                  Gonna meet the violence with defiance and Alliance
                  Cause the giants left the playground with a lot of blood and sorrow.
                  Gonna get a room on Z'Ha'Dum, the ship'll zoom,
                  And then go Boom Shubba Lubba 'cause there's always one tomorrow.

                  How can I help it if I think they're driving Johnny mad?
                  All the time used to smile, now he's Dave's dad,
                  I'm the kinda guy who'd rather walkabout than run,
                  Can't understand why they killed their own son.
                  I have a tendency to shorten everybody's hair,
                  I have a history of lopping off heads.

                  It's been... five years since "The Gathering",
                  Beginning, middle, end, Joe wrapped up the whole thing,
                  Five years since we saw this show,
                  How good it was gonna get, there was no way to know,
                  Three years since we really knew,
                  We voted Joe a Hugo, then we gave him Number Two,
                  Yesterday, it went off TV.,
                  But we have still got Crusade, so we ain't too sorry.

                  Still got Crusade, so we ain't too sorry....
                  Joe, I've seen Crusade -- you're gonna be sorry.
                  Bring me the head of Londo Mollari.

                    Hee! Thanks, Capt.Montoya - I missed that in Tachyon. I have to admit that I do a double take pretty much every time I walk into any store these days, because 99% of them have the Grand Theft Auto ad in their windows (except maybe the supermarkets)...and every time my eye catches "Andreas," I'm like, "...whuh? Huh? Where?" :-)
