As I've mentioned in other posts, it appears that there's a deadline looming regarding Babylon 5: The Memory of Shadows. Originally I thought we might have until the 17th when the studio executives return to work but I now hear that it's to be Monday, January 10.

Several other fans have joined in the effort and we've come up with a 'Phase II' plan to show TPTB that the fans are eager to 'put our money where our mouths are'.

Very soon you'll be seeing the following Press Release:

The æBuckÆ stops at Warner Brothers

Fans today unveiled the second phase of their effort to convince Warner Brothers to cast the original actors from the popular five year television series in the upcoming movie ôBabylon 5: The Memory of Shadowsö

On the KeepB5Alive site ( are links to æBabylon BucksÆ which fans are urged to print and send to Warner Brothers at:

Warner Brothers Film Development Department
4000 Warner Boulevard
Burbank, CA 91522

Fans are urged to send this message right away -- whether they've written before or not -- as the studio execs are now returning to work after the holiday break. Send the message to the decision makers at Warner Brothers is that the fans are willing -- even eager! -- to put their money where their mouths are.

That pretty much says it all. We're pinpointing the effort toward the Burbank address because we feel that that's where the decisions will be made.

I urge you all, go to the website *now*. Choose one or more 'Bucks' and print them according to the instructions. Don't worry if you don't have color, pretty much any printer will print greyscale so the details won't be lost. Use the bucks to tell WB that you'll see the film many times, buy the DVDs-basically make it worthwhile for them to make a *good* movie. Be sure to include your information and a personal plea or they're just so much pretty scrap paper.

I can't stress enough that time is short! We've already covered all the pros and cons and I'm still convinced that no harm to the project can come from fans expressing their support.
