Spider in the Web”. Since this is for Volume 2 of “Babylon 5 Scripts:
Other Voices” we can only accept questions for this particular script.
As a quick refresher, in “A Spider in the Web” a friend of Talia
Winters comes to Babylon 5 to negotiate a deal to help Mars become
more self-sufficient when a man calling out “Free Mars!” murders him
before her eyes. Here’s the Lurker’s Guide page for this episode.
Here are some sample questions we have lined up just as an example:
– Was Bureau 13 originally meant to be a regularly seen organization
like the Psi Corps?
– Amanda Carter’s grandfather was John Carter, a reference to the
series of books set on Mars by Edgar Rice Burroughs. Was it your idea
to include that?
– This the second script of yours to feature cyber-organics; first the
Vicar in “DeathWalker” and the Lazarus Project in this one. Is the
idea of cybernetics and human interface something that interests you?
IMPORTANT NOTE: You can email as many questions as you like.
Deadline: Wednesday, May 28
