Let us contemplate the futures of Tracy Scoggins/Elizabeth Lochley, John Sheridan’s beard, Michael Garibaldi’s job, and B5‘s fifth season itself!
As part of the move to TNT, a couple of B5 TV movies happened. This is the one that didn’t crib chunks of its footage from previous episodes. This is the one that supposedly took place during Season 4, but has a lot of character and plot development that sometimes doesn’t gel.
In other words, retcons are rarely seamless and they shouldn’t have renumbered the Narnia books. Thrash it all out, past and future, here.
There may not be all that much to talk about in the spoiler thread for this prequel–the project began when there was even doubt there would be a fifth season–but if you see some things that resonate with future stories, this is the place.
Okay, so now everyone knows there’s going to be a telepath war. And everyone knows that Sheridan and Delenn’s new coalition started something that worked for a very, very VERY long time, but had growing pains.
But the devil is in the details. Here is where you can hang out with the devil.
The Earth Civil War has ended and this new thing called an Interstellar Alliance has risen from the League of Non-Aligned Worlds.
Talk about how well it goes here.
Exeunt one President and one Ranger.
Enter an intergalactic force to liberate Mars and Earth.
Talk about the next acts here.
Garibaldi’s been allowed to explain. Sheridan has been rescued. Ivanova has broken up what would have been a devastating ambush, but at the cost of her own life. Next up, freeing Mars.
This is where you can talk about all of the results and other things that are coming as we close in on the end of Season 4.
John Sheridan is trapped in a vicious, never-ending cycle of physical and mental torture.
Here is where you can talk about the ripple effects going forward.
Garibaldi plays the role of Judas and now Sheridan is a prisoner of the Clark regime.
Bester is our monologuing villain and shows Garibaldi just how badly he’s been used.
Here we get to talk about the fallout for everyone involved.
If you’re in this thread, you know what Sheridan told Franklin. You know what Garibaldi did next. You know how things went down. And you get to talk all about it here.
