Saving The Earth From Impending Doom ... Again
Posted by JPX
I watched exactly one episode of Babylon 5. I found the character pictured to the right to be so irritating I never watched it again. Yep, I'm just that petty about such things. I also couldn't stand Quark and any of the other "funny" Trek characters. From syfyportal,
"If five seasons, six television movies, and several attempts at spinoffs of Babylon 5 weren't enough, you can soon view never-before-seen tales this summer.
Written and directed by show creator J. Michael Straczynski, "Babylon 5: The Lost Tales" a made-for-DVD Warner Bros. movie, reunites familiar characters on the famed space station. The original cast has returned, including Bruce Boxleitner (President John Sheridan), Tracy Scoggins (Capt. Elizabeth Lochley) and Peter Woodward (Galen).
"Babylon 5: The Lost Tales" takes place in 2271 New York, 10 years after John Sheridan is appointed president of the Interstellar Alliance. The set of mini-stories follows Sheridan as he prepares for a Babylon 5 reunion that could prevent Earth's impending doom. Unfortunately, he is also forced to compromise his own principles in doing so. At the same time, Lochley confronts an unexpected interloper on the way station -- a being whose presence makes Babylon 5 the crossroads between heaven and hell.
"Babylon 5: The Lost Tales," will be available for sale on July 31.
"Babylon 5" is a major DVD seller, with more than $44 million in sales as of last November when this project was first announced. The series was first launched in February 1993, and averaged more than 13.7 million viewers in its first season.
Although it spent its first five years in syndication, it later moved to do four more seasons on SciFi Channel and TNT spinning off five feature lenght movies, as well as the short-lived "Crusade" spinoff."
