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

When talking about something like this, you're dealing with 3 or 4 different issues:
1) The reasoning behind why you would want to redo the series given how iconic it is
2) The question of whether or not anything 'new' could be brought to the table
3) The viability of such an endeavor
4) The feasibility of such an endeavor (i.e. 'would this actually work')

In real life, there is probably no way that a B5 reboot or remake would go anywhere because of the reasons that chrisspringbob brought up, but that shouldn't preclude discussion about the topic, nor should it preclude the exploration of said topic via the realm of fanfiction.

Even though the likelihood of something like this happening IRL is slim, there IS a chance that it could work (there's always a chance; just ask people like George Lucas).

BTW, this discussion has actually been much more productive than the last discussion we had on the topic (which I started), even though the same objections have been brought up as last time.
