  • Once again...the Wiki Lives!

    Similar to what so many of us multi-board lurkers may have seen, I'm trying to draw some more users in to the now-decently sized B5 Wiki! last time I posted, it had just begun and consisted of only a couple dozen articles, but now...We're nearly at 800 legitimate articles, most of which are decently full of content-y goodness. So I present thee...The wiki!
    *dramatic fanfare*
    The Great machine

    And stuff. So yeah, consider coming on by and checking it out, because it's still got a LOT of room to grow, but just think of how much progress it's made since it's humble beginning earlier this year! Cheers to the lot of ya

    It has been too long since I last contributed. I will get on it.
    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.

        Thanks - but that should actually be referred to, I believe, as "the Battle of Babylon 5." cannot say i recall if I have ever heard it called that authoritatively, but it does sound more like something in a history book than "Battle: Severed Dreams"

        I cannot change the title, though.

        For those interested, I included some "historical analysis" of what Captain Smith should have done, as well. Go here

          Oh, and I somewhat controversially claim that the Churchill scragged the two Hyperions we never see again, and that is how she got shot up. No evidence for the claim other than common sense telling us that SOMETHING happened to her, and something happened to the two Hyperions.

            Well, the issue with calling this "The Battle of Babylon 5" is that there were multiple battles (admittedly smaller) at Babylon 5 during the show's run. This could be further broken down through disambiguation pages, such as "The battle of Babylon 5" which would link to individual battles occuring in the region. We're really not trying for proper history book feel, but efficiency and thoroughness. Feel is secondary to actually being able to find the information in a manner that's straightforward and prevents conflict where it can.

            As for the Hyperions, that's what the {{conjecture}} template is for

              All right, I am slowly figuring out the formatting. Once you get used to it, it is pretty easy.

                Oh, and I found my reference for "The Battle of Babylon 5" - it is what this event is called in the DVD Data Files section.

                There were other "incidents" at Babylon 5, but just the one "battle."

                Not that I am hung up on the thing, but you have to be able to call it something in the rest of the wiki. Should it just be referred to by episode?
