OK, *I* have a question

There is a scene in the casino somewhere in S1 where a group of people is sitting around a table playing some kind of 3D holographic game. It isn't made a great deal of, it's just a detail that we see as some characters walk through the set. I wanted to check something in that shot and I can't for the life of me remember which episode this happens in. Can somebody save me a lot of time digging through "The Lurker's Guide" or scanning through the discs and give me the title? /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif


I think he is correct.

As a side note, that game reminded me a LOT of Star Trek 3 at the Spacedock where there were people playing a game just like that. /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif
Cool, I'll check "Survivors".

Gee, it reminded me a lot of Star Wars, which beat both B5 and Star Trek III to the idea. /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

That scene is much better than the "Zima" product placement during S1

Zima wasn't a product placement. A product placement is when the production company accepts money to get its brand on screen. B5 never did a product placement. When Kawasaki came on board as a sponsor they accepted the loan of the Ninja motorcycle, but Babylonian Productions didn't get paid for it, and they only worked it into a script because they thought of a fun way to do it. The Zima sign went in as a joke. (As JMS said at the time, "The idea of Zima lasting until 1995, much less 2258, is just hysterically funny." Turns out he was wrong, at least in the short term, because I think the stuff is still around.) Zima didn't pay for it, I think they were just notified that it was going to happen for legal reasons.


I knew they weren't paid for Zima, and it was pretty funny. Zima, however, is the most horrific mass marketed alcohol product I've ever witnessed, at least until recently. ;-)

I would have enjoyed Glenfiddich being shown, as that's a scotch that will be around forever. Anyone know where I can get my hands on the Garibaldi approved "Afterburner" whiskey?

A funny aside, I'm from Philadelphia in the US. I was in Bristol, England over the summer visiting my grandmother. A B5 friend of mine tracked me down and showed up at my grandmother's place, in England, unannounced, with a bottle of Glenfiddich and had a PAL copy of Severed Dreams in his backpack that he was travelling with throughout Youth Hostels. That's a resourceful friend.

I almost thought the Zima thing was sort of a homage to the numerous "Schlitz" signs that can be seen in "Blade Runner", back when Schlitz was ahead of Budweiser in sales... but probably not.
Yea I forgot that was in Star Wars also. Its been a while since I have seen the original one...
Oh. My. God. Joe D. asking for help on a B5 issue. How the mighty have fallen. Shame. Shame. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif
Indeed, I almost fainted from the shock. This is a sign of the apocalypse, for sure! /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif I should write to Sports Illustrated so they can include that in the next issue (they are still doing that, right?)
Nope, just swimsuits. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif
