Re: What if a BSG-styled remake of Babylon 5 was made?

What aspects of the original show would be changed in this remake? Which aspects would you rather be changed? How gritty do it think it would be? Would it take the same kind of risks in storytelling the way Battlestar Galactica did? Would be the relationships between the characters be portrayed more realistically and develop more organically? Would be the humor less chessy and more sharp and witty like Joss Whedon's brand of humor in his shows?
Let the discussion begin.
I actually tried to create a 'virtual television' (read: script-based fanfiction) re-imagining of B5 with another poster from this board, but it didn't end up going anywhere. I still have a lot of the stuff we came up with, though, and wouldn't mind sharing it with you if you'd like.
