Correct, I'll be at San Diego Comic Con on August 4-7, and will be
showing some new stuff. And will probably have some things to say about
season two, but will obviously be holding back some stuff.

There will be a new intro to year 2. I would hope that the
opening narrative would be shorter. Not ready yet to announce who's
going to be doing it. It will probably include shots from years one and
two.

Getting Patrick will depend on getting a script he likes. It's
certainly one of my goals.

And yes, there will be some new writers freelancing for us this
season; I'm talking to writers like Peter David, and Scott Frost (from
Twin Peaks and X-Files), a few others...and I'm going to keep hammering
at Neil Gaiman to do us a script until he finally does one just to make
me go away.

No immediate committments to the prior three, but we're seeing what
we can do.

Neil's turned down some script work because he's up to his eyes in
prior commitments, and doesn't take on stuff unless he feels strongly
that he can give it the proper amount of time to do a good job. But he's
good enough to merit going back to again and again and again until he
surrenders....

"He's a little too big to be held easily in the palm of one's hand."

{Ivanova is supposed to be Jewish, right? ( Tells you I haven't been
watching all of your episodes-grin ). Then how come her last name is
Ivanova as opposed to Greenberg or something?}

She was born in the Russian Consortium, to Russian parents, with Russian
surnames. No big mystery there.

We're going after the pirates. On the model front...basically,
all that has to happen is for a model company to come to us and make a
deal to produce the models. (A decent sized company.) So far, none of
them have, on the theory that only ST models sell from TV shows. Maybe
if they heard from consumers interested in B5 models, they'd come to us
and make a deal.

You know, even in prison, people get time off for good behavior.

I used to tell guys who buzz-cut their hair bald that if they really
want to look that way, just do what I did: wait a while.

BTW, and not to make a deal out of this, but several folks have
inquired based on things mentioned in wiki entries and the like...and
normally I wouldn't even mention (and haven't mentioned) this sort of
thing online because I'm kind of big on the whole privacy thing, but
there comes a point when not mentioning something becomes noticeable.
Anyway...to those who have asked or feathered around the issue, yes, I
am divorced. The process was long, but very, very amiable and all
parties are actually happier and better friends now than before.

No long threads please, again to respect the privacy of all involved,
I just wanted to clear the air a bit.
