I guess you missed my "if things had gone as planned."
So if things had gone as planned, it would have been "Failure" ??? If anything was a failure, it was the Rangers pilot. As it was aired, Crusade's season title would have been "Sabotaged by Inbred, Braindead Lifeforms from Atlanta."
Yeah, Ant, I look forward to the answer too, however, he'll most likely ignore the question.
I'm pretty sure this has been asked before, and I don't think JMS elected to answer it.
Nor do I think he'd be inclined to reveal any more episode titles than are already known. (Since S1 was intended to be a mix of both JMS and non-JMS episodes and arc/non-arc shows, chances are he didn't have titles planned for all 22, so some slots for which no script was ever started wouldn't have titles in any case.)
If he did plan on season titles, and if he intended to use one of the known episode titles, I suspect that it would have come down to one of three, each of which reflects an aspect of the main story that would have been covered in Year One: "The Needs of Earth", "The Rules of the Game" or "Value Judgments".
B5 used the "key" or "pivotal" episode titles for its seasons.
Signs and Portents
Coming of Shadows
Point of no Return
No Surrender, No Retreat
Wheel of Fire (frankly I always wondered why he picked THIS one for Season 5)
His first unfilmed "arc" script was "To the Ends of the Earth" and could very well serve as giving one a good idea of what the FIRST season was mainly about --- looking for a cure for the plague, while also being an episode that shows you a hint of what the REAL Story is going to be. (Signs and Portents did this for B5).
