It was something I actually did think about briefly, but ultimately
decided that it wasn't fair or right...in the sense of saying,
"Listen...for everybody for whom the show meant something, if it had an
effect on you, if it was important...and you'd like to see something
done outside the system, without studio notes, or interference...and
you wouldn't mind never seeing that money come back to you...you could
invest whatever corresponds to what the show meant to you via the
babylon5scripts@aol.com paypal account, which if enough shows up would
be used for a short film, a development fund for future B5 projects, or
a full length feature."

Thought about it...but again, ultimately droppd the idea. Just didn't
seem right.
