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.


Working off of memory but Crusade was planned for 5 seasons, and I think the cure for the Drakh plague was going to be in Season 2 and the rest would be exploring new worlds and dealing with the Drakh.


Also JMS did write a tale a few centuries later where Marcus was revived after they found the planet where that machine came from. What Marcus did after he realized what happened and caught up on history was quite interesting.


Also as I recall, Marcus was never intended to perish, Ivanava was meant to die but then casting changes and budgets occurred and she wanted to stay at first and thus Marcus was written off but then she leaves anyway.

Sinclair leaving at the end of Season 1 was also not the original plan.

Otherwise I think the majority of the story arcs overall went as planned.

Also read the novels, Psi Corp trilogy, Legions of Fire Trilogy (Vir vs Emperor Mollari), and the Technomage trilogy of novels and also To Dream in the City of Sorrows.

All considered Canon by JMS, and all fill in areas of the story that the show didn't
