Really looking forward to this. While I'm sure I'll use the online edition far more, I love the idea of the two-volume set.

And when Captain Jaclyn says this has been in the works for years, it's no exaggeration!

In case anybody's still thinking about it, the discount period for the upcoming B5 Encyclopedia will end March 31.

OMG people! This may ruin my life. Someone needs to tell me to stop looking at everything in the online edition. I have to have a life outside of this, but it is so awesome. :thumbsup:

Re: Babylon 5 Encyclopedia
 
So no other thoughts on how great the encyclopedia is? :wtf:

Re: Babylon 5 Encyclopedia
 
I could - but I'm kinda prejudiced, you know. ;) It's easy to lose time exploring the online edition, that's for sure.

It's worth mentioning that there's an entire 'chapter' online for folks to enjoy. http://b5books.com/ about halfway down the page.

Only just got a copy myself. I'm still reading. What I've seen so far is pretty awesome though.

Still waiting on mine to ship. Can't wait! :drool:

I've been rewatching B5 recently and I actually found it quite nice to have the online version in a side window so I could look up stuff as I watched.

Where the encyclopedia will really shine (I hope) is if I ever get around to making missions for The Babylon Project. One of the problems I have with mission design is trying to stay consistent with the B5 universe. I get the nub of an idea for a mission but then I find I have to check something against an episode of the show and then I'm there watching the rest of the episode cause B5 is just too good to watch a clip!

Do you mean you open a window with the Go90 App to watch it and then you open another window with the Encyclopedia? (If so that is excellent!)

My books are out for delivery as we speak! Unfortunately my Post Office has been having all kinds of delivery issues lately so I may not see them until later tonight. Saturday they delivered our mail a 8:15pm. I believe it was four degrees Fahrenheit outside, so I'm sure that carrier was REALLY thrilled to be out delivering mail by flashlight. :eek:


UPDATE!!!!! They arrived approximately fifteen minutes after this post. Delivered in daylight at a balmy eight degrees Fahrenheit. :guffaw:

I have a multi-monitor setup for my PC so I just watched the episode on one screen and used the online encyclopedia on the other.

Ooo fancy. :lol: ;)

I have to settle for the two windows open on one screen. Of course it is a 17" screen that would have blown people's minds in the 1950s. :guffaw:

How many of you have received your copy of the B5 Encyclopedia? I got an email about it shipping in January, but I'm thinking that didn't happen.

I got mine. Did you pay the shipping fee? I think that has thrown some people off. They couldn't charge shipping when people pre-ordered because they didn't have a product to base the shipping amount on. So you had to pay your shipping before it shipped. If that isn't the problem then don't hesitate to contact them because they are great to deal with.

Here is the email address: help@b5books.com

Looney's correct. They also had an issue with the shipper and if you're international, you have to give them info you want for the Customs Declaration.

Email help@b5books.com and Captain Jaclyn or one of the Lieutenants will help straighten things out.

Thanks guys! I found the email address and they got back to me pretty quickly. It was indeed the shipping fee, I'm definitely one of the people who was thrown off by that. Should be on its way soon, looking forward to seeing this beast.
