JESUS, I forgot how many different sub-forums were on here.

Around the start of the year I linked to new Babylon 5 web site that was more a beta to the final version.

The final version is now up and running (itís got some rough edges but Iíll likely smooth them out over time). Itís about three times the size with a pile of exclusive interviews with 14 of the people directly involved with the show including John Copeland, Ron Thornton, Luc Mayrand, Tim Earls and Larry Bowman.

It will now work on all standard browsers such as Firefox, IE, Safari and Opera. (Itís been tested - a lot - so any problems will be down to bugs in specific browser versions Ė yes they exist - or some personal configuration glitch).

All the text is now copyable and thereís a bit of concept art section as well.

One interesting bit for me (at least) was the stuff Chris Wren had to say about the Legend Of The Rangers.
As this is Newtek I think you might also find the Paul Bryant and Everett Burrell interviews of interest as well.

Anyway, itís there for fans of the show to look over. And before anyone accuses me of looking for kudos in creating something like this, Iím not Ė and I can prove it, you wonít find my name, real or virtual, on the site anywhere.

This thread is only to let you know that the thing exists.

Itís intended to be primarily a reference site or sorts Ė it does contain a lot of unique content from the guys who did the work. (the stuff I added is NOT to be taken seriously in anyway shape or form Ė including the dodgy humour).
The reasons why I decided to make the site can be found in the Links Section Ė donít ask.

So, enjoy, slag off or ignore as appropriate.

Hey! I remember when you posted this, it was awesome going through all the information. I am happy to see how much more you have added! I still need to get to the interviews, that should be very interesting to read.

Thanks again, and great job on putting it all together! :)

Might have missed it, but where are the actual stations, B5, B4, etc...?
Might be cool to have some background info to them and their designs as well (as to the story).
Otherwise absolutely awesome work!
keep it going!

You didn’t miss it, they’re not there.

There’s a couple of little bits about the B5 station scattered about the thing - like the station as a whole was always longer than 5 miles and Steve Burg came up with the intial shape when Ron T was having designer block on it, plus the design was put together on spec before FI was formed - but I see what your saying. That probably comes under the heading of rough edges needing smoothed out. Well that’s how I’m categorising it anyway. :-). Along with adding in a few fan based things – but not for a little while though.
