Well JMS did make some specials that continued the show during the 2o years Sheridan had left, but that was it.

The show had its beginning and its end. Continuing it after all this time with the bulk of the cast dead wouldn't work.

I had hoped he would have done a miniseries or TV movie about the time of Valen and Babylon 4.


But at this point a reboot is the only option other then to leave the series alone.

I mean you could go the TNG route and just say time has passed. Keep it in line with real-world time and say it's been 25 years and see what's happening in the galaxy since last time. Invent a brand new cast of characters and tell new stories in the B5 universe. Have the few remaining originals drop in from time to time of they feel like it.

I mean retelling the original story again makes it seem like there's only one story to tell in the B5 universe.

But I understand what you're saying, he has tried that before and I guess no one was all that interested. Not the networks and not the audience. Maybe this is the only way. Maybe they can even improve a few story elements from the original that suffered from production related issues.

Did we ever find out the outcome of the Crusade mission? Didn't they also have a 5 year plan that didn't get finished.
