    You know, I get the impression that no matter how he says it, Grumbler does believe the rumors and supports the campaign.

    I understand the weariness from Amy and Jan, but I fear that weariness might have make you concentrate on a few statements (negative, or just not positive enough) out of their context. If you put them in the context of the parts I emphasized you might see grumbler's comments differently.
    Maybe grumbler could express himself better, or make it more explicit that he supports the letter writing?

    Now let's all take a deep breath and "we will all come together in a better place" ,)
    Oh, yes, of course I do! I wasn't aware that I had left this in doubt.

    My argument was simply that those who believe that there is a movie in the works have only hints and rumors (okay, strong hints and rumoprs, but still just hints and rumors) to base their belief on. Some of those very same people, when confronted with a truth they don't like, poo-pooh the idea of "casting troubles" because the reports of "casting troubles" are based on hints and rumors. Before they will take action they need "proof."

    I merely point out the logical inconsistency of the decision to believe inthe movie's existance but not take action, in both cases sans "proof."
    I believe that when we leave a place, part of it goes with us and part of us remains. Go anywhere in the station, when it is quiet, and just listen. After a while, you will hear the echoes of all our conversations, every thought and word we've exchanged. Long after we are gone .. our voices will linger in these walls for as long as this place remains. But I will admit .. that the part of me that is going .. will very much miss the part of you that is staying.

      Welcome back Amy! And thanks for taking the time to answer some of my questions - much appreciated!

      Just to clarify (because I don't think I was being too clear), I was trying to refute Grumbler's point about there only ever being one movie planned. While I agreed that the Telepath Crisis/War was the original story planned for a movie, other subjects have come up (such as, apparently, in the case of TMoS) and if TMoS is sucessful will come up again. There is so much complexity to the B5 universe that so much is possible!!

      On the last point, I agree. More G'Kar. And some Ivanova too please. (Actually, that reminds me - having just read the "Hidden Agendas" short-story, does anyone agree that the closing paragraph bodes well for Ivanova's involvement in the film...?)

        In a perfect world, yes. Hell, I'd love to see that short story filmed in its entirety, and be part of B5:TMoS, just not with different actors playing all the key roles.

          I never said that. What I said was the JMS has not, as claimed by bakana, said for years that he was planning multiple movies. I am sure that JMS always kept in mind the possibilities for more than a single movie, but he wisely kept the focus on just getting the first one done, and declined to discuss anything even more tenuous. Once a successful first movie is made, follow-up movies are approved and made much more quickly and readily. It is the first one that is the bear.

            Apologies, I'd misinterpreted what you'd said. At least we all seem to be (more or less) on the same page now!
