What is the slang term for the inclusive Babylon 5 universe?
 
Fans of Joss Whedon's work refer to their world as "Whedonverse". Fans of Dr. Who are called "Whovians". How do B-5 fans refer to JMS, themselves, and/or the B-5 universe?

Only thing I've used or heard is "Babylonians". Works for me.

I like it. We also call ourselves "Babblers" for obvious reason. ;) That's why we have the Babbleon forum (HI RW!!!). :dancing:

Many of us are Lurkers going all the way back to the Lurkerís Guide. We just call it Babylon 5. The Straczynski-verse would contain many disparate properties.

Yeah I've always thought "Lurkers" could be the one to describe fans, but people outside the know of Babylon 5 tend to attach a negative connotation to that word. "Babylon 5 Universe" is what I call it because I don't really associate any of JMS' other work with B5, other than seeing references in language use and such.
