Welcome to Show #260, and the start of Season 7 of the Babylon Podcast!
Get ready, Babylon 5 fans… the coverage of the comics, novels, guidebooks, games and collectibles is about to commence. But first, we have to find a way to get copies of some of them into Tim’s, Bret’s and Jeremy’s hands… after we digress into a discussion about physical vs digital books.
Deep Geeking: Tim, Summer, Bret and Jeremy discuss the last officially produced Babylon 5 video content, The Lost Tales.
We talk about how the stories have aged in the nearly 5 years since the DVD was released and how they impact us during fresh viewings now, and we also discuss what would have been the third segment on the DVD, a Mars-based story featuring Garibaldi (the script for this story can be found in the TV Movies scriptbook).
Also, folks preparing to review and discuss the comics and novels with us (or for us), get ready… your turn to join us for discussions is coming up soon!

Lurker’s Guide 2.0: Summer is expanding the documentation to be covered at Lurker’s Guide 2.0, the major change being converting the episode guide into a full Wiki with cross-referenced topics, tidbits and everything you’d want in a Wiki. She’s also still searching for pictures of rare collectibles, photos of magazine covers and toys, and all sorts of other B5 goodies that didn’t get included in the original guide during the years after Crusade. Let her know if you want to lend a hand.
More Parody/Filk Songs Wanted: If you know of any more B5-related fan songs out there, definitely let us know, so we can let other B5 fans know where to buy them! And if those CDs are out of print, let’s brainstorm on ways to get those songs back out there for fans!
Babylon 5 Information Gathering: If you know of a dead or abandoned B5 related website that may be in need of a new home, let Summer know! Maybe we can mirror it here or house it on a sister site.
