Around the many missed opportunities surrounding this show, the one that stands out for me is one of the episodes that was never put to film - in which the Excalibur happens upon the post Telepath War hiding place of one Alfred Bester. There was a site that purported to have a copy of the script, and it was an interesting read - so much so I had wished the show had lasted long enough to film it, but alas, it was not to be.

I remember wondering if Doctor Franklin remembered his Markab friend and colleague Doctor Lazarenn now that he was the one on the inside of the isolab.

If memory serves, I seem to recall the intention was for the captured telepath was to be none other than Lyta Alexander. Alas, Pat Tallman wasn't available at the time of shooting.

I remember when this came out. Sci Fi was *so* desperate for it to succeed - they had advertising everywhere they could afford it to be (this was to some extent when they were learning they'd need wrestling *and* bad movies to help pay the bills) even to the point of looking for volunteers to have advertising for the show attached to their cars (they didn't want me - Ann Arbor isn't a big enough market)
I was excited to see new content for the B 5 universe, so I sat down and watched...

I could see what they were trying to do, and I thought there were places for it to go, the VR combat/piloting system was an interesting gimmick, but there weren't enough compelling elements there to get me started.
Apparently, I wasn't the only one who thought so.

I figured they were confused since Sheridan had died once already.

That may take some time - I am putting together a B5 vid based on the bit I quoted above - I have one bit on youTube, but for some reason, my own attempts to embed video here are met with mocking error messages from InDeb.

I thought that as well! - Not quite up for more tears - "Who Lives, Who Dies, Who Tells Your Story" is quite sufficient for that.

Here I am at work, with my box of tissues, hoping no one will notice during the last hour of the day just how many of them I needed to use...
Just the review got me going...
