Re: #FreeBabylon5 Campaign

Not a lot new on this front. Our webmaster is hard at work on the website and for those attending JMS' spotlight panel at NYCC, there will be some buttons to be had (*not* from JMS who's not involved in the campaign).

Have you ordered your #FreeBabylon5 t-shirts yet? *Less than five hours* left to order the Drazi Green or Purple (or both) shirts and only two more days for the Mars Red. These shirts will *never* be available for this low price of only $15.55 again! If you've been meaning to order, now's the time!

Re: #FreeBabylon5 Campaign

For those who might not be following along on Facebook, we have buttons!
http://www.trekbbs.com/album.php?albumid=373

The first 300 are going to New York Comic-con where a couple of costumed Rangers will be handing them out at JMS' spotlight panel and perhaps elsewhere. Quite a number of folks have asked about buying them, too, so I'm looking into ways of doing small mail orders. Let me know here or via PM if you're interested.

Keep an eye out for news soon on a 'get loud' campaign that's in the works to both get people involved and to let people know about the campaign.

Re: #FreeBabylon5 Campaign

I just noticed this thread and added my "like" to the Facebook page. I'd love to see B5 back on the air. And, unlike some, I'd love to see another new B5 project.

Re: #FreeBabylon5 Campaign

Part of the 'fans need to get loud and get organized' part of this campaign is raising awareness of Babylon 5 in the public consciousness. There are a couple of IMDb polls going on right now that might just help that. First is a vote for the best series finale. Predictably, Breaking Bad is now beating us. But when the poll was only up for a couple of days, B5 was over 500 votes.
http://www.imdb.com/poll/W1Gf3Y1w0B0/

Another one that's fun is to choose your favorite story set in the 23rd century.

Surprise! Trek's winning. But I'll be Babylon 5 could make a serious showing.

Despite it looking like you can vote multiple times, only one vote per account is actually accepted.

You seem to have accidentally linked to the same poll with both links.

Re: #FreeBabylon5 Campaign

^^ But there's a link over on the right under Related Polls.

I voted. We're in second place, but BB has about three times as many votes. It's amazing the stuff that people will watch these days. It's also amazing how far down Newhart is on the list.

Re: #FreeBabylon5 Campaign

Sorry for the link error! Here's the correct link to the 23rd Century poll. http://www.imdb.com/poll/aSR3qtJbCSY/?ref_=po_rp

Sadly, we've fallen to third place behind Friends now. So if you haven't voted yet, please give B5 a shout. Let's get noticed!! http://www.imdb.com/poll/W1Gf3Y1w0B0/

(got it right this time!)

Re: #FreeBabylon5 Campaign

Anyone else see this commercial?


It has two scenes of Sinclair using his communicator. I was cheering when I saw they included Babylon 5 with clips from Star Trek, Knight Rider, Inspector Gadget, Predator, Get Smart, etc. It shows that B5 is still in the zeitgeist!

Great to see...and yet the sad, anal retentive nerd in me can't help but point out that the Predator's wrist gadget was a nuke, not a radio.

I saw it again today. I was eating lunch with my kids at a pizza shop and looked up just as they showed Sinclair. I love seeing Babylon 5 on TV, even if it's only as a part of a commercial!

Re: #FreeBabylon5 Campaign

There were Rangers today at New York Comic-Con, handing out #FreeBabylon5 buttons. A short report from Ranger George:
"We had some transportation issues this morning and arrived at the con a bit late. We only caught the last 15 mins of the workshop. ... Gave out buttons to about 30 or 40 fans, and JMS himself took one. He thanked us for the effort. Also, at the end of the workshop, someone shouted "Free Babylon 5!""
Ranger George and Ranger Tara will be handing out buttons again tomorrow at JMS' spotlight panel. You can recognize them from their costumes (Earthforce officer and Ranger).

Also, yesterday those who are signed up for the B5 books emails got a note with the links to the two polls listed upthread. At the moment, B5 is #1 in the 'favorite 23rd century' poll and a solid #2 behind Breaking Bad for 'favorite final episode'.
