I have it on DVD. And the movies. And the Lost Tales. And the Legend of the Rangers. And Crusade.

And...sad to hear of his passing. And he was younger than me.

Though a bit dated in regard to its CGI and resolution, this was my favourite TV show, ever.

It is really sad.

Same. I used to love it. It was more realistic than others in the sense that intelligent species would likely be political and territorial with no clear good guys. The story arc was well-handled too iirc.

In contrast, Star Trek was great and lacked the sense of SCALE seen in B5. In some ways, Star Trek was a series of road trips projected against space; each week a new collection of characters and a problem that needs solving. B5 was a bit more sophisticated imo.

There were also some story components that were left unsaid, like the Techno-mages were actually using tech manufactured by the shadows that merged with the user, like the shadow ships merged with their 'pilots'.

One of the contributors to the storyline was also NASA Astrophysicist, Jeanne Cavelos, who also wrote a trilogy of books based on the Techno-mages and Straczynski himself was married to Kathryn M. Drennan, who worked with Carl Sagan on the Cosmos series. So there was a fairly high science pedigree among the writers & contributors.

This sucks, one of my favorite shows. I just started watching it again. I get to episode six and then I read this. Now I am going to finish the whole series again, in his honor.
