ATTN JMS: B5 Writing Process

 Posted on 8/31/1995 by to

B5 was *never*, ever, at any time, pitched on the nets, or even
discussed on the nets, while it was in development. Not even the name
was ever said. So I don't know where this particular myth has come

The first time I ever started talking about B5 (except in an offhand
reference in a Starlog article) on the nets was about November 1991, when
we'd finally been given the go-ahead for production on the pilot movie,
but couldn't officially talk about it until WB announced it. During that
time, I only described it as "That Which Cannot Be Named" (TWCBN for
short) on GEnie.
