Thank you, everyone, for allowing our love of Babylon 5 to help fuel your own love for the show, and we are grateful that our efforts to explore a show we love also provided entertainment and enjoyment for you. Your voices and support over the years have meant a lot to us, and that you still want to hear us keep talking about everything B5, and not just Day of the Dead, warms our hearts.
Feedbackapalooza: Gary from Jacksonville, quite likely the most prolific feedback producer the Babylon Podcast has ever had, joins us to go through the messages for the last official feedbackapalooza. He may have to replace Babylon Podcast with Kick-Ass Mystic Ninjas on his voicemail speed dial…
Tim relates an article from io9’s Charlie Jane Anders article, Please explain Babylon 5 to us!, and the offer is still out to Charlie if she wants to join us some day for a roundtable Q&A, where we’d do our best to answer her questions, and to keep those responses to under 5 minutes each.
And then, the Feedbackapalooza!
Deep Geeking: Legions of Fire, The Centauri Prime trilogy written by Peter David, is the topic for this episode, and the crew on hand really digs in.
The books in order are “The Long Night of Centauri Prime”, “Armies of Light and Dark”, and “Out of the Darkness” (the third book is out of print, but not quite as hard to find as it had been in previous years). This was the second of the Babylon 5 trilogies that are considered canon.
We lament the passing of science fiction master Harry Harrison, recounting some of the classics that he’d written over the years.
Feedbackapalooza: Tim, Summer and Jeremy dive into the messages that you’ve sent us, and we appreciate your messages to us and for us! We have a lot to go through, so settle in, kids…
Feedback: Tim, Jeremy and special guest Michael Dymond (Stormknight) tackle the second batch of voicemails, and it’s 100% Neil from Bowie, because that’s how we have to handle it whenever he gets on a roll.
Are there official blueprints and cutaways for Babylon 5?
Feedback: Tim, Jeremy and special guest Michael Dymond (Stormknight) tackle the first batch of voicemails covering the recent Crusade unproduced scripts and more.
Stay tuned next week for the rest of the feedback from this batch, and the people joining us to review and discuss the novels with us (or for us) should be preparing to step into the on-deck circle!
There’s nothing quite like playing Devil’s Advocate in a Babylon 5 argument you’re having with yourself.
Feedbackapalooza: The Feedbacking continues, as we hack our way through the backlog, clearing the way for future voicemails to come in about the comics, novels, and collectibles.
The new theme music for Season 7 makes it’s official debut, and it’s a snippet of the theme created by Stewart Copeland for the original version of “The Gathering” that aired in 1993.
Feedback: Tim, Summer and Jeremy respond to the backlog of voicemails that have come in over the past month or two, and as happens quite often, tangents rule.
It’s been way too quiet on the Babylon 5 front AND the Crusasde Script Books front. What’s going on?
Also, folks preparing to review and discuss the comics and novels with us (or for us), get ready… your turn will be coming up soon!
