Re: Niners Unite...around Babylon 5! - The Lost Threads

I have now started reading the Techno-Mage trilogy. I have to force myself to rewrite Galen to do this as I found him so repulsive in Crusade and the first book seems to be his story, or at least it is in the beginning. Very well written and interesting so far!

Re: Niners Unite...around Babylon 5! - The Lost Threads

I searched this thread and didn't see this quote anyone and I apologize if someone already used it but here I go...

"It was the end of the Earth year 2260, and the war had paused, suddenly and unexpectedly. All around us, it was as if the universe were holding its breath, waiting. All of life can be broken down into moments of transition or moments .. of revelation. This had the feeling of both."

"G'Quon wrote: There is a greater darkness than the one we fight. It is the darkness of the soul that has lost its way. The war we fight is not against powers and principalities, it is against chaos and despair. Greater than the death of flesh is the death of hope. The death of dreams. Against this peril we can never surrender. The future is all around us, waiting in moments of ctransition, to be born in moments of revelation. No one knows the shape of that future, or where it will take us. We know only that it is always paved in pain."


By the way, Andreas Katsulas had such a powerful voice that no quoting could ever do him justice.

Re: Niners Unite...around Babylon 5! - The Lost Threads

Okay I've finished the Techno-Mage trilogy.

It is one of the best things I have ever read. It is INCREDIBLE.

All during Crusade Galen was my most disliked character, I was always complaining about how emo he was. During this trilogy I kept feeling an overwhelming need to apologize to him for my ignorant attitude. I going to rewatch Crusade as soon as possible.

This trilogy does not read like a series tie in, it's a fantastic story in itself. There is no Treklit even comparable in quality. Some of it was so disturbing and upsetting I had bad dreams about it, at times it was incredibly depressing and tragic.. like the tragedy that was much of Bab 5.

These books are out of print and I ended up buying them through Abe Books.

Here's the Amazon reviews for the first book:

http://www.amazon.com/Casting-Shadow...9561649&sr=1-3

Try not to read the reviews for the next two as you may hit spoilers, this trilogy is full of revelations.

Re: Niners Unite...around Babylon 5! - The Lost Threads

I just watched all 5 seasons of B5 and thought about the B5 episode discussion that was here in the forums. One episode a week? Couldn't have done it. Watched it all in a week of late nights.

Has anyone read the Legions of Fire trilogy? If not I'd really recommend it...

Re: Niners Unite...around Babylon 5! - The Lost Threads

One of my favorite B5 quotes and it's absolutely true too, is:

Sheridan: Understanding is a three edged sword, your side, their side, and the truth

Right on the money quote there!

Re: Niners Unite...around Babylon 5! - The Lost Threads

Actually it was the Vorlon, Kosh, who said it first. And it was true - in Real Life - long before it was quoted in Babylon 5.

Re: Niners Unite...around Babylon 5! - The Lost Threads

You're both right. Kosh said the first part and then Sheridan quoted it and the "Your side, their side..." part but we never actually saw Kosh say that bit. But Sheridan said it twice - first in "Interludes and Examinations" and then in "Into the Fire".

Just popped in to say I read "The Legions of Fire" trilogy and I loved it. Amazing to see Vir's progression and poor Londo's decline.

Re: Niners Unite...around Babylon 5! - The Lost Threads

I have the Legions of Fire trilogy but haven't gotten around to it as I have a Peter David aversion. That said I have heard his earlier stuff is often good and I will definitely read it. The Psi-Corp trilogy was very good, a history spanning many years. The Techno Mage trilogy was one of the best things I've ever read. So I really had better get to the Legions of Fire!

Re: Niners Unite...around Babylon 5! - The Lost Threads

I started a Babylon 5 Rewatch this week and decided to start not at Midnight on the Firing Line, but with the movie, The Gathering. I had seen the original version of the movie (With better music I think, gave it more of an 80s vibe which I liked) but I actually didn't remember a lot of it on the rewatch. For one, I was surprised that they gave us a huge spoiler right at the beginning which makes me wonder if it was an appropriate start to the series. Other than that, I know everyone likes In the Beginning more, and while I agree, there is a certain charm to The Gathering, as there is with the other movies as well.

Watched Soul Hunters last night and that one isn't really one of my favorites. In fact, I'm realizing Season 1 was a little on the bumpy side, other than maybe a few episodes.
