Re: More B5 on the way?

but its a moot point. Its not going to happen. Bloody hell people trust JMS - it's his baby. Makes no wonder he's cheesed off at some bloke on Facebook for flaming him on this subject.

Re: More B5 on the way?

Just read a v interesting tweet from the Star Trek Conference in Vegas. Walter Koenig was saying that he had recently had dinner with JMS who had told him that he was trying to reacquire the rights to B5.

Here's the tweet

To my understanding, that means he's trying to buy series production rights back from Warners.... is this a correct interpretation?

Re: More B5 on the way?

Sounds like it could be. Keep in mind, though, that what JMS has said about his talks with WB is that they're informal at the moment and nothing might come of them for a year or so.

Can't say I don't think it'd be cool, though!

Re: More B5 on the way?

Seriously cool stuff. Creator own IP is a new thing in comics, I hope he gets it and does awesome things, It would be another TV first for B5 ...

I admit, I am surprised by the love from the Trekies. We all know that Walter Koenig is much better known as Chekov but to me he will always be Bester.

Re: More B5 on the way?

I know. This one stands out ...

Quote:
B5 was by far the best Trek series of the 90’s

Maybe the best written continuing saga SciFi series ever
And this made me chuckle ..

Jeffrey Sinclar was Chosen One because he was Valen.

Sisko was chosen One, because he was a Sinclair clone.

JMS has now posted via CBR and on Facebook that Walter Koenig mis-spoke and that there's no B5 under negotiation.

Re: More B5 on the way?

Hmm, seems to contradict himself from Comic Con with the mentioned plan B. Oh well ...
