    Jan,

    Most of the folks around here are familiar with my script collection. I've got legal (set-used, fan club or gotten from cast, crew or writers) copies of all of the scripts, ...
    Dang! Was that all as in *ALL THE SCRIPTS*, or was that "all" .. as in I don't know. That would be quite an accomplishment, and quite a collection.

    Have you ever thought of typing them up in text, and getting them put out on the WWW for others to see or read, or faithfully subscribe to copyright laws.

    Of what scripts I have .. from what was offered in the Babylon 5 Fan Club, I've typed them up, but I've kept them and never tried to do anything with them. Typing them up into text accessable words (VS printed images of letters) have helped me know so much more of the episode/how it was written and played out.

      I can answer this one

      Yep all, as in .. all the scripts for B5, the movies, and Crusade.

      I've got a handful of them, but I like my collection more. So there, Jan! :P It includes ...

      Michael O'Hare's copy of Born to the Purple
      Claudia Christian's Hunter, Prey and a couple others.
      Maggie Egan's Objects at Rest and Midnight on the Firing Line and 3 others.
      Brad Procter's To Live and Die in Starlight
      The only known released script for "Into the Fire", the sadly-cancelled game, featuring the last B5 appearances for Luchenko, Delenn, Sheridan, Jane (cry), Garibaldi, Lorien, and others.

      And a few others I won't mention cuz I know y'all are jealous.

      She thinks just cuz she's like pokemon and collected em all that she's something.

      *giggle*

      She is.

      Oh yeah ... I need sleep.

        My good and dear friend Omaha is just bragging because he won the bidding war against me for the game script! Anyway, I've got a Claudia script and one from Tim Earls and two Rick Biggs scripts, so there! AND the joke script! Nyah, nyah!

        <Jan smacks her inner 5-year-old> Erm..yeah...okay, I'm feeling much better now... I was lucky to find a crew member who allowed me to buy his whole collection and I've since filled in the missing items little by little. And no, I'd never post them or copy them for people, as JMS has made it quite clear that to do so would be in violation of his copyright.

        Somewhere in the forums here is a synopsis I wrote of the Gut Reactions fifth season script by Bill Mumy and Peter David.

          You definitely don't see this cast/crew gift on Ebay very often.

            That last item seems a bit suspect; I don't doubt the validity of the item itself, but the description seems to associate by implication that it belonged to Bruce Boxleitner in some way, at least that's the way I interpreted it.

            I recently came across my absolute favorite cast/crew gift again, which is was distributed by director Mike Vejar during production of'A Call to Arms.' It's a 'worry ball' (one of those squeeze balls you use to get rid of tension or exercise your wrists) with the B5 logo on it. But the best part is the box. On the front is the logo for 'A Call to Arms.' On one side it says 'Anything worth doing is worth overdoing' L. Michael Vejar, and on the other side, 'Why does everything have to get Vejarder and Vejarder?' J. Michael Straczynski. And on the top, 'I had a ball. Thanks all!! Mike Vejar. A very classy gift, from a very classy guy. I certainly wouldn't part with mine easily.

              I think it's just how the seller listed it to get a lot of search hits. There's nothing in the body of the ad to indicate that it belonged to anybody in particular even with all the unnecessary detail about the show. Of course, there's nothing that indicates how worn it is, either.

              Love the stress ball, Joe. Mike Vejar sounds like a great guy. I enjoyed his commentaries with JMS on the DVDs. Tell me, do you know what "I've been Vejar-ed" means? I understand that it was another gift but there seems to be an inside joke about what Vejar means in Spanish? C'mon, you can tell us!

                Translation anybody?

                I agree Jan, Mike is one of the most interesting B5 people I had the pleasure of meeting. I was lucky enough to watch him work on 'A Call to Arms,' an episode of Crusade and B5: Legend of the Rangers and he always made it look so easy. I was so glad that he took the time to do those commentaries because Mike doesn't like to talk about his work. I think it took me five years to get an interview with him, and he only gave in because I wore him down after half a decade!

                  Here's a pretty good of assortment of cards on EBAY. It'll be interesting to see what it finally goes for. I bet for more than the current $33.

                    I'll bet it does! Last time I noticed, you're lucky if you can get the laser cut cards for $10 each. Looks like a nice collection.

                          These seemed to interest people last time. B5 magazines Not much time left on it.

                            That one didn't go for as much as I thought it would. I guess though it wasn't a bad price for someone who bought the magazines just to read them, and then decided to sale them to recoop some of the cost.

                              Re-coop? Isn't that what you do with wayward chickens?

                              Thanks very much. I'll be here all week.
