So ... I guess I'm back here too. For those who remember me. It's been, uh, a few years, but it's nice to be back. :)

Yay!! It's nice to see you! I have thought about you from time to time and wondered how you are doing.

I've thought about you guys as well!
Unfortunately I lost my FB login data years ago (and no attempts at regaining it worked, not even sending in a photo of an official ID) and haven't even been able to check in there.

Not much has changed in my life, heh.

Anyway, I do hope this reboot works - and that it will bring some new life here, too. I've missed this place, and in spite of how much online life has changed in the last 20 years, I still think forums / message boards are the best platform for actual conversations and discussions.

I have noticed that conversations are really short and not very two-way in social media. B5TV captured something very special and I do kind of miss the earlier days.

Kribu, now that's a name I've not heard in a long time...a long time. Wait, wrong franchise.

Welcome back!

Thank you! It's really great to see people I remember still here. :D

Aren't you supposed to say "Hello, old friend"?

I don't want to call her old, especially considering how old I'm feeling these days! 😅

Great post Anthony, and it's great seeing some of the old names in this thread and others. I'm definitely glad to see this forum still kicking around, and that it will be here for this new series. It will certainly be my go-to for discussions.


Similar to you, I was a bit skeptical when I saw this new series was going to be a reboot, but my skepticism lasted quite a bit less than yours I would think...probably the span of minutes or a couple hours, as I wrapped my head around it. At the end of the day, what you said rang true for me too: JMS is JMS. B5 is his baby and he will do right by it. It's going to be about us fans having the right expectations IMO. People expecting it to be "like" OG B5 may be disappointed. I'm not sure it needs to be the same, in fact, it may be better if it isn't. Being in the frame of mind to NOT compare the two series I think will be key.


This will be a new story, perhaps with some familiarity, and I think that's what I'm looking forward to most after all these years.


I do disagree about Sci-Fi being a "shadow" of it's former self. All the new Trek is pretty much rubbish, but for me, "The Expanse" has been the current Gold Standard for Sci-Fi for me the last few years and I love it. It's an amazing book series and the show has done a great job of converting it to television. I'm also hopeful about "Foundation" (although admittedly that's not an original work). I like what I've seen so far on Apple TV.


I think a new JMS story will fit in well, and there's clearly a need for good Sci-Fi. Hopefully the audience finds the show.

I checked the settings and it appears that we are open for new registrations. Let me know if there are still problems.

I sent you a PM several days ago. Any word? I haven't heard from him that he's been approved. Thanks!
