So reading that statement in a new light, it almost sounds like it could be a mix of the first contact with the Minbari, and first contact with the Shadows. Wonder which it will be, or perhaps neither, a new race?

A new super powerful race, the likes of which we have NEVER seen before.





THE FOOT.

Never understood why anybody thought that the Hand was actually supposed to be all that powerful. What, folks thought that a conquored (and captured) being was gonna say "yeah, they're really not very bright but they beat the pants off of us!"

Not to mention the fact that "It's a big galaxy, [Mr. Scott]".

It was a pilot. The actual series could have gone anywhere.

Yes, despite what I'm "primed" to expect, I think the best part is not knowing. Anything could be made as an alternate history for B5. Literally. I just hope nothing goes wrong to stop it when it's THIS close. CW, economics, Covid, there is so much that could make this not happen.

I know, I know... just couldn't resist the joke.

Sorry, I forgot to post the link. This link looks like it is an updated version of the older article.

The main thing about the article is that it corroborates what JMS has said about the pilot still being in development and the CW president being a fan.
