It seems Jeffrey isn’t the only one with B5 swag still stashed away. The good folks over at babylon5scripts.com have delayed the release of Volume 12 to accommodate JMS’ discovery of archives that pre-date the pilot. As a result, Volume 12 can still be ordered at the discounted price of $10 off the usual $39.95 until September 18. In addition to JMS’ introduction and bonus material, this volume covers scripts from “A View From The Gallery” though “Phoenix Rising” and can be ordered here.

IMPORTANT NEWS FROM THE SCRIPTS TEAM
Last week we got a “midnight memo” from JMS. We’ve cut and pasted it below so that you can see it.
What he told us is that he discovered a box of B5 goodies that have been packed away for over 13 years, from when he was shooting the B5 pilot.
We don’t want to spoil the surprise so we aren’t going to give details here, except to say he asked us to stop the presses and re-do volume 12 so that everyone can see what he found right away.
You can order now but the Stop-the-Presses edition volume 12 will not start shipping until September 18. Your credit card will be authorized but it will not be charged until it ships.
To celebrate this new-found material, we are going to keep the debut discount price of $10 off the $39.99 in place until September 18th. But if you want to get your book as soon as it’s ready, order now.
The first orders in are the first orders to ship out.
P.S. Even though Cafepress will only authorize your card and not charge it until your volume 12 actually ships, please note that a few banks and credit card companies place funds on hold from authorizations until the charge clears.
THE MIDNIGHT MEMO
Date: Tuesday, August 21 2007
TO: Scripts Team
SUBJECT: Stop The Presses
I realize that you guys are busy prepping the release of volume 12 but when you’ve heard what I discovered you’ll understand why we have to stop this run and start another. It’s worth it.
Last night I discovered a box of archives that no one (including me) has seen in more than 13 years…B5 material I thought had been lost ages ago…material from the very first stages of creating B5…photos from behind the scenes in the lead-up to shooting…artwork on station IDs…signage and ranks that were not used….
Since volumes 13 and 14 are already packed to the gills, volume 12 is the only place for them. The fans have got to see this stuff. You’ll have the scans in a few days.
I realize this means that we have to redo volume 12 from scratch but it’s definitely worth it.
