This may not be your cup of tea new-material-wise, but the project I'm working on is
a lengthy fanfic starring the (totally made up) chief engineer of B5. Who we never see. Who runs the place, anyhow?

NB: I absolutely do NOT count the buffoons in "The View From the Gallery" as part of this staff.

So, a shameless plug for "In the Core: Ch. 1: Broken In." (Yes, I do mean "core" and not "corps;" not a teep to be found.)

(Newbie alert! Is there a designated appropriate place for posting links to fanfic?)

Let me know if you think it's worth continuing. The plan is to follow engineering through the series, with technical problems in each chapter, and a worker-caste Minbari coming soon. Chapter 2: The Core is Mother, the Core is Father coming soon. If it sucks too bad I'll stop, I promise.

The B5.related forum is probably the most appropriate place for posting links to fanfic.

Are you including Guerra, Morden's doppleganger from The Gathering (Ed Wasser originally played someone with an Engineering background, not sure of his rank though), and what of the dodgy geezer who shuts the lights off at the end of Sleeping in Light?

Did his career track pack to the early days of B5?

In all seriousness, good luck with it all though.

Re: B5 Engineering

I'm assuming you guys have probably already seen this, but just in case you hadn't, the Wiki article on the Omega Class Destroyers has a very cool section on stuff that was designed for the ships, but never actually used in the show
