    How different Babylon 5 be if the people who did Farscape were the ones in charge of the show?

    Well, Na'grath would've been a main character.

    Come to think of it, the seating area for the League Of Non-Aligned Worlds would have been a great spot to have muppets!

    G'Kar would have given the most eloquent speech, ever, concerning crackers and how they matter.

    'Sleeping in light' would've ended with Sheridan being turned into M&Ms.

    - Early in Season 3, John Sheridan would be accidentally duplicated by the Great Machine on Epsilon 3. One of them stays on Babylon 5 and fights against President Clark (along with Ivanova, Garibaldi, Franklin), while the other flies around with the White Star (along with Delenn, Lennier, Marcus) and battles the Shadows. White Star Sheridan starts a relationship with Delenn until he is killed fighting the Shadows on Z'ha'dum (and doesn't come back from the dead).

    - Michael Garibaldi would be a Star Trek fan instead of a Duffy Duck fan.

    - Somewhere along the line, Bester would completely switch sides until he finally sacrifice his life in an heroic effort to defeat Clark and the Psi Corps.

    Londo would helium fart more.

    And Sheridan would just be that more epic (and very crazy).

    Journeyman: The Complete Series
    (The Good) Heroes Seasons 2-5
    Cupid: The Complete series (starting Jeremy Piven & Paula Marshall)
    Star Wars: Episodes 7, 8, & 9

    What about "Star Trek: Phase II" (not the fan series ;))?

    Or since we're talking about B5, the five seasons of "Crusade"?

    I never liked the ship design from Phase II, but sure why not.

    If I find the right quantum reality, I'm sure they'd of done it with a ship design I enjoyed.

    And yeah, Crusade got screwed up and down before it ever was. Needed Time to become what B5 grew into.

    You know what, I would love to watch that. :lol:

    *sigh*

    If only that could actually happen. But you left out the most obvious: Farscape's season 5 (instead of being truncated into a mini-series)!

    I thought about it, but didn't want to step on the toes of the people who enjoyed "Peacekeeper Wars"

    I really miss the fact that we lost the eventual galactic conflict featuring the Nebari. (Thought the Comics continuation has started to mitigate that loss somewhat)
