Babylon 5 article

In real life I work as a journalist, and I recently wrote this piece about how scientists view B5 and how they've been inspired by the show. I'm not sure if many people have read it so I thought I'd post the link here. Please feel free to share on social media etc.

A scientist I spoke to after I'd submitted the article to my editor, so he's not in the article, told me he came to the show 5-10 years after it aired, but now his research group has a running joke where they tell the students they can't graduate until they've watched the entire show. At least, I think he was joking!

I'll share your article with two fellow B5 fans who are close friends of mine. I know they'll appreciate it.

IMHO, the story that needs told is Crusade. They could make that as JMS wanted to tell it. Babylon 5 is perfectly fine as is. I see no reason for rehashing old ground in a story that was already well told, when you have Crusade sitting there, a story that was truncated by idiots.

In the future we still have physics, politics, and pockets.

Thanks! And who knows, it's entirely possible that JMS will fold part of the Crusade storyline into this new series? I think this new B5 will be very different to the original.
