Speaking of the script books, wasn't Vol. 14 supposed to have shipped by now?
It should be pretty shortly. The 'signing bunker' was supposed to take a few weeks.

I yield to you, the honor of the first summary of Vol. 15.

I'm honored, kind sir. But...there'd be a conflict of interest, I'm afraid. There's something that I did included in Volume 15 that I think is pretty nifty but I'll be interested to see what others think.

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

In a few days I shall take you up on that. I just received an email that it's shipping in the next couple of days. The email was a reassurance to everyone that Vol 15 is shipping with the package, given that the CafePress notice would only mention the Vol 14.

These are good people here on that scripts team!

Crap. It looks like I'm going to miss the boat on these script books. I just haven't been able to put together the finances to buy the lot of them. Still, the four volumes I have have been good reads.

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

I'd be interested in seeing some of the actors in a different context. What do posters here consider the best non-B5 movies and TV shows for the B5 actors?

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

Well, G'Kar was in TNG and The Fugitive (Harrison Ford version).
Sheridan and Londo were in Tron, I'm told, although I haven't seen that.
Ivanova was in some alien-possessed stripper movie.....
Lennier was in Lost in Space (not the Hurt movie)
I saw Sheridan in an Outer Limits episode once.
Lyta was a stunt double for Doctor Crusher and Major Kira.

Really not a lot out there, come to think of it.

A great role for him even if there weren't many lines that I recall.

Unfortunately true.

I caught an episode of MASH not long ago with a much younger Peter Jurasik. Not a heavy role but it was good to see him.

Mira Furlan and Daniel Day Kim have been great on 'Lost'. A fair number of Mira's movies from her days in the former Yugoslavia are available on Ebay sometimes and probably other dealers.

Bruce can be seen fairly regularly on Sci-Fi and Hallmark channel movies. Not great roles but he does well with what little he's given. He did a nice job in "Young Blades" a few years ago even though the show was pretty execrable. That one was a shame because there was some really good acting of some really horrid scripts/stories.

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

Bill Mumy was also in my favorite original series Twilight Zone episode, "It's a Good Life". Stephen Furst was in Animal House. Jeff Conaway was in both Taxi and Grease. Walter Koenig was in this one space show from the 60s. And Pat Tallman appears for about a second in Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery.

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

^What scene was she in? I've watched the first Austin Powers movie several times, and I can't think of who she played.

In other news, I purchased the remainder of the Legions of Fire and Passing of the Techno-Mages trilogies on Amazon Marketplace. I figure that with the savings I got on most of the others, I ended up paying somewhere around list price for the series. I'll start reading the telemovie novelizations later this week, and I will post reviews here as I finish them.

She was the waitress at the beginning who gets punched by Austin Powers when he says "That's a man, baby!"

I just used the google to see if I could find a picture of that scene, and I did. Here's an interview with Pat:

If you scroll way down, there's a picture from that scene. Also says she was in the "Jerry Springer" scene in the second movie, which I didn't know until now.

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

I can still recall the first time I saw the TNG episode "Starship Mine". This was several years after the series had finished its run, long after I had converted to Babylonianism. At any rate, I cracked up when I saw not only Pat Tallman in that episode but Marie Marshall (Dodger from "GROPOS") as well. How cool was that?

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

On its own, the tale of In the Beginning is very good. It's a fable of sorts about how misunderstanding between alien cultures led to a senseless war. Most of the story we already know from various episodes, but it is cool to see it laid out in order and have some of the gaps filled in. My favorite new character is Lenonn. As head of the Rangers, he is both noble and canny.

The best parts of the novelization were Londo's narration and asides. Peter David completely nailed the voice and personality, and some of the observations were quite amusing.

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

I hope that Thirdspace has some fantastic visuals because the story is not exactly groundbreaking. The destruction of the artifact is almost entirely action movie cliche. The most interesting storyline involved the Rosens and Sheila. They were just ordinary, real people that I could care about, and I didn't know their fate in advance.

Between reading the novelizations, I read almost all of the notes on the Lurker's Guide for the five seasons. It's not quite like having commentaries for each episode, but I did learn some cool background and connections. The pages for each episode are sort of like time capsules that show what people on the net were discussing at various points in time.

JMS mentioned that he was writing three post-"Objects at Rest" stories for Amazing Stories. Did this happen, and are those stories available anywhere today?

Although I didn't much care for Lyta's character arc, I am interested in the adventures that she and G'Kar had together. Are there any stories, official or otherwise, that deal with this subject?

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

I'm not aware of any Lyta/G'Kar stories. We do know G'kar described her as "gone" as of Legend of the Rangers (usually placed in 2265, but I don't think a date is actually given), although whether dead or otherwise is unclear.

Wasn't one of the short stories in Amazing Stories or the B5 mag about a Lyta and G'Kar adventure?
