IN THIS VOLUME…the cliffhanger ending to Season Three, and the big season opening episodes for Season Four, considered the two most popular seasons in B5’s history! An original introduction and commentary written just for this volume detailing the dangers posed by the death of the PTEN network, and behind-the-scenes stories never told before, including how an accounting error came within an inch of utterly ending the Babylon 5 story after year three.
There’s also a couple of memos, but most important of all, something new: in going through the B5 archives, jms discovered ALL OF THE ORIGINAL CONCEPT ART created by artist Peter Ledger used in selling B5. This was the VERY FIRST TIME that the Babylon 5 universe had been visualized, and many of the elements in that early concept art were carried across into the series. Some of that artwork was used (in postage-stamp size) on a flyer from PTEN, but most of it has NEVER been seen, and the rest has never been seen properly, full-size. This volume includes FIFTEEN BLACK AND WHITE FULL PAGES of that original artwork, PLUS a color illustration on the back cover (subsequent volumes will also feature other full-color B5 concept art.)
See parts of the B5 universe you’ve never seen before! Read scripts you’ve never read before! Learn things you never knew before about the colorful history and dangerous past of Babylon 5! All of this in Volume Eight of THE BABYLON 5 SCRIPTS OF J. MICHAEL STRACZYNSKI!
