  • B5 at 20 - Multimedia Edition

    This seems great for anyone that didn't shell out on the deluxe coffee table book.

    For those of us that did, I'm not sure I see the point. A few Youtube videos really doesn't swing it for me. It's not the kind of book I want on a mobile device, kinda defeats the purpose for me. The whole appeal was the deluxe coffee table / art book format.

    Still, some will find this very useful and it's a far more accessible price point for the casual fan.

    Sounded interesting until I read it's a not a digital copy, it's an ONLINE copy. Meaning when the servers go down, you will no longer be able to access it. Meh.

      Not necessarily when - because the B5 Books folks have already a plan for many years already in place for the B5 encyclopedia. Suggest that you email [email protected] for more information than this:

      DO I HAVE TO PAY A MONTHLY FEE OR UPGRADE FEE AT ANY TIME?
      Absolutely not. Pay once, access for a lifetime. This edition is being hosted by Cablan.net which is owned by a Babylon 5 mega-fan. We have pre-paid the first 10 years of hosting.

        A DRM free download would still be an excellent option though. You buy it, and you own it. No strings.

        Even the most robust server plans can go awry with time.

          I had zero hesitation just because it is $37. I was on eBay last night prepared to spend that much on any random collectible I could find that struck my fancy. I hadn't checked anything all day and didn't know about this. Thankfully I didn't find anything immediately and then I found out about this. Plus I believe this is the cheapest they've ever offered anything. I would have liked a physical copy, but I'll take what I can get.

            I like it both for folks who have the coffee table book and those who don't (and I'm not just saying that because I work with them sometimes). Lots of times it's simply more con I particularly liked the example they used of the Medlab.
