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

Cool on the script books, though I probably won't be able to put the money together for them.

And not to sound like a broken record, but just to confirm, the following is the plan, right?

Saturday, January 26th 7pm EST / 4pm PST

7:00 pm - "Passing Through Gethsemane"
8:00 pm - "The Corps Is Mother; the Corps is Father"

2. What is this 'Scripts Team', Jan? And what do they do? Is it fanfic or what? Can you give me the 101 version, please, as I know nothing. Thanks!

Seeing as this thread is conducted solely at the pleasure of the forum's moderators.... how could we do otherwise?

A couple of years ago, JMS (J. Michael Straczynski, series creator) began to sell collections of scripts for the episodes which he has written. Each volume is made by cafepress, and contains not only the scripts but essays jms writes at each volume's beginning. Each also contains a brief intro to each episode. Some have extras of memos, pictures, etc taking you behind the scenes.

Much apologizingz, but Zathras must go have supper. WIll talk more later

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

^ So are these potential NEW episodes? Or are they the scripts from existing eps?

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

They are all scripts from existing episodes. However, in a few cases we see an alternate script, or a shooting script possibly, which will vary from what you remember. It's things like that which make them fascinating collectibles for me, at least.

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

Battlestar Galactica is probably my favourite show of all time, but B5 is probably my favourite sci-fi show of all time. Does that make sense to anyone? I'm 21, and when B5 came out, I was about 10. I've never watched it until this year, but god damn - the whole scope of it was so epic, I can't believe I missed out on it first time through.

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

Neroon has covered it well, PKTrekGirl . Some of the other things we've seen are JMS's notes on some of the proposed episodes and even a very early treatment for Crusade when TNT was being finessed into picking up the fifth season. In the first book we got an early draft of 'The Gathering' which featured Velana, Kosh's mate. Obviously, she was dropped and there were a lot of other changes. There are some amazing stories about the cast and crew (Lyta's Lingerie, anyone?), loving tributes to Rick Biggs and Andreas Katsulas.

The Scripts Team are the folks who deal with Cafe Press to get the books out and who handle customer service for JMS. Jaclyn is the Captain of the team.

And I'm not trying to sell anybody anything but shortly after the last volume of the B5 series comes out, they'll be going away forever. Volume 13 becomes available on the 23rd and Volume 14 is due out in March. There'll be a 15th volume given free to those who buy the 14 volume set and it's slated to have some very cool things including an outline of the five year arc had Sinclair stayed on.

^ Can I still order the entire set? And if so, where?

This sounds really interesting.

^^ Sure you can! Babylon5Scripts.com is the place to go for all the info and more detail on what's in each book. Oh, and you don't want to miss the detailed descriptions. Particularly in the early volumes they're hilarious. Click here for an example.

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

Well, I just went and purchased the first 5 script books. I'm sure I'll enjoy them.

It will take me a while to get caught up because they are so expensive...but in my mind these are essential.

I'm not a big reader of novels (either DS9 OR B5)...but I love these 'nonfiction' works - those individual books about each season...and now these!

I also bought a coffee mug.

I'm such a nerd!

you should probably just wait for a bootleg version, cause these things are selling for rip-off price. i mean, they cost way more than the entire DVD set, and a whole lot more than the script went into making those (you know, like paying actors, directors, editors, making sets...etc.) it's insane that they think they can charge more for just the scripts alone than for the entire show!
