Welcome to Show #214!
Tim and Summer talk about the results of the listener poll regarding the Crusade viewing order, and the fans have spoken: the Scifi Channel revised broadcast order has won out. Tim is nonplussed.
Discussion: Tim and Summer talk about the technology and the everyday gadgets found on the station and in the hands of its command staff, crew and folks just passing through.
On the list this time around: ship behavior in space; handheld weapons and ship-based weapons; medical technologies; personal hygiene (showers and laundry)
Voicemail: Gary chastises Tim for believing that Captain Anderson was destined to be the lead going from “A Call to Arms” to Crusade; Gary sees a story parallel between “A Call to Arms”, and the “Over There” segment from The Lost Tales; Gary thinks that “A Call to Arms” is a perfect example of how a story set in the B5 universe without the major B5 cast members could work very well…

Also, Mike sends his heartfelt gratitude to all who have donated to the show, because your generous contributions helped us get the studio back up and running in a moment of crisis.
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 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 Podcast Social Communities:
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.
