That would be fascinating stuff, but... THIRTY DOLLARS for a single episode script? I'm not a millionaire...

Yes, I read the entire article. I'm generalizing.

Re: New Babylon 5 script book featuring rare alternate version of ep20

Any idea as to when we're going to get the remaining Crusade books?

The trilogy outlines are pretty long from my understanding.

As for Crusade Joe said when asked last month if he was still working on them:

The script would be nice but I'd love to get my hands on the VHS! I remember when various other VHS versions appeared on eBay a few years ago (including 3 versions of personal favourite Babylon Squared).

Re: New Babylon 5 script book featuring rare alternate version of ep20

Am I misunderstanding the... Is JMS still writing new Crusade as script books?

No, not at all. The name of that series is "Crusade: What the Hell Happend?" and there were two "Crusade: Other Voices" books that had scripts that were never produced written by Peter Woodward, Fiona Avery and Richard Mueller. But no new Crusade scripts or stories are in the works.

The entire video couldn't be released in this manner as we'd never have gotten permission from the studio. But the entire audio *is* included as well as screenshots from the entire episode. I thought it was a nice work-around.

Right. It's a series of books which provides the scripts for the episodes for which scripts had been written at the time of cancellation (including the ones that they never had a chance to film) as well as behind the scenes insight into what was going on, and (eventually, as I think we've been told) some hints as to where the story might have been going next.

I read some of that material 10 years ago on dial up.

"Sigh"

Finally put my order in--interesting addition to the original run. I think I'm most excited about the novel outlines.

I'm hoping the Crusade books come out soon too.

Yeah, I heard about this too, and I think I'm going to get it. But I'm more interested in the novel outlines than the 2x01 stuff.

I gathered this was probably the case, but the annoying thing is that the first book was called "What the Hell Happened Vol 1," which kind of implies there would be subsequent volumes.

My understanding is there will be more volumes, but they won't have new Crusade stuff, only the scripts that had been done and a discussion on what happened while it was in production.

There are subsequent volumes coming. They are Joe's season one scripts. Volume 1 covered 'Call to Arms' and 'Racing the Night' so there are still ten scripts to go (counting "To the Ends of the Earth" and "The End of the Line"), along with notes and production info and the story of what happened.
