Jon M. Wilson and I will be launching a podcast about Babylon 5, starting on January 19, 2024. The first promo is here. It’s safe for first time viewers, and episodes come out 30 years after the original broadcast date of that episode or movie (in most cases). We are also crossposting this podcast to YouTube.
The development of Bureau 42’s Geek Test continues. This time around, site founder Dave created 20 questions to challenge and norm our readers. You can take the test at http://bit.ly/rE14oC. Please do the test once only, and give it your best effort. Come back next week for a similar test for Star Trek: The Original Series. Feel free to share the link! We’ll need a lot more respondents this time around; Part A had 32 possible response patterns, while this part has 1048576, and we need to see the way those patterns appear when people are trying their hardest.
Yeah, you read that right. Over the years, JMS and John Hudgens have made a number of B5 videos, that made a few rare convention appearances. Now, they’re all online for your viewing pleasure.
It’s been some time since we reported on the Babylon 5 Scripts of J. Michael Straczynski releases, primarily because we haven’t developed review criteria for scripts yet. The rundown: JMS is releasing every Babylon 5 script he ever wrote (which is the overwhelming majority of the series) in volumes loaded with commentary, behind the scenes information, and general information for fans and other writers. The fifteenth and final volume is completely free, including shipping to those who have ordered the first 14. It was recently announced (by way of a note packaged with volume 13) that you’ll need to register for your copy of volume 15 BEFORE picking up volume 14; the last two volumes will ship together. (You can still get it after ordering volume 14, if you’re fast enough.) Details are here.
