    "There are no good wars. War is always the worst possible way to resolve differences. It degenerates and corrupts both sides to ever more sordid levels of existence, in their need to gain an advantage over the enemy. Those actively involved in combat are almost always damaged goods for the rest of their lives. If their bodies don't bear scars, their minds do, ofttimes both. Many have said it before, but it can't be said to enough, war is hell. "

        Mine came it is HUGE, I had to go to the post office to collect it, came in its own canvas post bag. I flipped quickly to the Claudia Christian Inerview, I am AM16, however apparently what I said was unintelligable.

        Still nice to have though.

          At Space City Con / 'The Centauri' panel,
          Peter Jurassik falls back into character as he reads his scene from The Gathering that hooked him into playing Londo...

          So cool and I'm so glad to have these videos

            Yes that was one of my top 5 moments being there. And as a side note, that was the final Space City Con. I have no idea what happened, but it is no more. The only thing I've been able to learn is that some people who ran Space City Con are now part of a group called The Houston Con. That is such a shame. I had such a great time. I mean it wasn't really well run and it did seem under attended, but that only made it better from my point of view.

              I'm still waiting for mine.
              And I can't check because I never receive confirmation e-mails anymore.

                If you think it's been too long, see if Lt. Brandon or Captain Jaclyn can check on it for you. At the least, they should be able to tell you when it shipped.

                    Almost SOLD OUT!!

                    Just a quick update, for those might have missed the B5 Books mailshot. This book / DVD package has been a runaway success they are almost out of stock.

                    From their email update:

                    Originally posted by B5 Books
                    Greetings from the bridge --

                    Our most recent release, the 2-book/22-video/8-disc package "Babylon 5 - 20th Anniversary Conventions: The Fan Experience" (or FanEx, as well call it around the office) is in danger of selling out before the end of the debut discount.

                    This could mean that our most loyal customers -- folks like you on our mailing list -- could miss out. So we want to make sure you know that if you wait any longer, you seriously risk FanEx going out of stock.

                    If you planned to get this multimedia delight, click here now, or miss the debut discount price of $41-off.

                    Captain Jaclyn, Lt. Brandon and the B5 Books Team

                    P.S. Yes, the no-interest, two-payment plan is still available.

                    P.P.S. When we say "out of stock," technically we're referring to the 22-video/8-disc sets that accompany the books. The discs aren't print-on-demand like the books, so once we run out, the party's over. Close the windows, lock the doors, the First Ones have gone beyond the Rim.

                    P.P.P.S. No, we can't sell the books without the discs. That'd be like Londo without G'Kar, Rebo without Zooty, Zathras without...much forgettings of what Zathras was saying. Zathras is being very sorry. Much apologizings for forgettings of important informations.

                    P.P.P.P.S. Next month we have something special to announce. Something we've never tried before. Something we think will be a lot of fun. Something that can only be described, at the risk of being redundant, as...well, special. What we can tell you now is that once this happens, the Fan Experience will be G-O-N-E.

                    P.P.P.P.P.S. Ah! Zathras remembers! Zathras remembers, but must not say. Captain Jaclyn told Zathras not to say. Is secret.
                    Captain John Sheridan: I really *hate* it when you do that.

                    Kosh: Good!

                      Just wanted to mention a little tidbit from behind-the-scenes at B5books.com.

                      "The discs aren't print-on-demand like the books..."

                      In fact, these discs are unlike any disc that B5books.com has included with a book before.

                      Not only are there 8 of them, which means they had to go into their own DVD case, but these are factory/plant PRESSED (replicated) discs. These are not burned discs. They are the same quality of disc that you get when you buy a movie on DVD at retail.

                      To demonstrate and celebrate this FIRST for B5 Books, we came up with a pretty nifty design for the discs that makes use of the silver surface of the disc itself.

                      If you don't have a copy of the Fan Experience set, you can checkout a fan unboxing on YouTube here:

                      https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6ahtLtJo1eA

                      He cracks open the DVD case to look at the discs at about 2:40.

                        Thanks, Brandon! I didn't know about that video and sadly I've been too busy to explore the set myself. Really looking forward to it soon though. I missed a lot - especially at Galveston.

                            I cringed when I saw the person opening the box and packages with a box cutter. Fortunately, he did not damage the books or DVD case. If I tried to use a box cutter, I would have severely damaged the books.

                              It' True.

                              Just an FYI -- Yes, we are officially out of stock on the 2-Book/9 Disc Babylon 5 Fan Experience. We have a super-rush on the discs and hope we will get them by mid-February.

                              This means that
                              (1) we will extend the debut discount price for at least 2 weeks beyond the "back in stock date"
                              (2) We will make an announcement before the debut price ends
                              (3) people who sign up for the waiting list at http://b5books.com will have first dibbs when the come back in.

                              Thank you for making this one of the biggest successes in Babylon 5 Books history.

                              Captain Jaclyn and Lt. Brandon

                                Just got an email from the Scripts Team that they've gotten a small shipment of the Fan Experience in. If you missed it or need to buy somebody (or have somebody buy YOU) a Christmas present, now's the time!

                                See Claudia narrate an introduction to the set.
