Re: apologies...unnecessary. We learn by our mistakes, and move
on. The incident is forgotten, gone. We move on.

To your questions...there's always been a side-story that could
go off after the 5 years in the B5 universe, but it wouldn't be B5. No
reference books planned for now, or anything filmic currently on the
boards.

I'm also the executive producer, I basically *make* the show,
overseeing every aspect of production, hiring directors, actors,
supervising sets, costumes, efx, you name it.

It takes 7 days to film an episode. My favorite is probably
"Shadow Dancing," which you haven't seen yet, mainly because I haven't
been able to poke any holes in it yet. It's a good ep.

All I can say for now is that WB has asked us to make a
presentation to them on a possible sequel; this has been done. They've
now asked us to go to the next step of making a demo reel. In
addition, there's some very exciting stuff going on with TNT that I
can't talk about yet, but hope to be able to do so soon.

That breakdown is about right; and no, Minbari don't count as
First Ones.

The B5 copyright belongs to PTEN/WB.

We'll see; it depends on how far they would let us go with the
story.

TNT = Turner Network Television, a huge cable network here in
the states.
