Because the guide is set in the time period of the fifth season; it is a guide
to B5 *as it is in the fifth year* of the show, at which point the Vorlons and
the Shadows are all gone. We had to choose which year in which to set the
thing, because of folks going in and out of the story. We took the conceit
that this is the kind of thing that someone arriving at the station would
reasonbly or conceivably get. It isn't a guide to the history of B5, it's a
guide to the station, and who's in it, in season 5.
