What's New

The transcript of the chat with Jeanne Cavelos is now available at The Galactic Gateway. If you are an aspiring writer, you might want to see what advice she gave on Tuesday.

Ranger Jim sends along word that the current issue of Wizard: The Comics Magazine (No. 115, April 2001) contains a coupon for ordering a Midnight Nation #1/2 exclusive ($3.00 per comic). Thanks Jim.

While wandering the newsgroups this morning, I came across a posting about the "Declaration of Principles". It included a link to http://www.tp2b.de/babylon_project/2262_declaration.jpg. I suggest you give it a look and enjoy, once again, the magnificent words. Hopefully you can hear G'Kar repeating the words as you read.

Peter David, author of the Centauri trilogy and other B5 material, told a crowd at MegaCon last weekend that he will re-team with former Incredible Hulk artist Dale Keown on a new Hulk story. "Marvel is doing this series called The Last, the last stories told about Marvel characters. They asked me, 'Would you like to write the last Hulk?' And I told them I already had." Peter wrote "The Last Titan," a short text story in a collection called Ultimate Hulk. "It was the Hulk as basically the only thing left on Earth," David said. "So they said, 'OK, do you want to adapt it?' And so Dale Keown and I are together again on 'The Last Titan.'"

For two weeks in a row, Babylon 5 has been #2 on SCIFI's top 10 -- right behind Farscape. This week they pulled in 1.1 rating while Farscape received a 1.2 rating.

New segments of the B5 chronology are on-line. Here at the Zocalo, you can read about events that occurred during the 20th Century that affected Babylon 5's history. Over at The Galactic Gateway you can read another segement of John Sheridan's chronology.

The B5 Cast on the Tube page has been updated with movies and TV series in which cast members are featured.

Marjean Holden (Dr. Chambers in "Crusade" and Arina from "Beastmaster") has a new website. The address is www.marjeanholden.com. The site will be fully operational in a couple of days, so drop over soon.

If you missed the short stories JMS had been out at www.bookface.com, they are now included in an anthology, "Out of the Box" edited by Lou Anders. It also includes a number of stories by other individuals. It's now available via www.barnesandnoble.com.

** I didn't see the book listed at Barnes & Noble (perhaps it will be available soon there). But Ranger Mike sent along a note to say that the book is available at http://www.wildsidepress.com/index2.htm for less than at B&N. Thanks Mike.


March 9:
RATINGS: X-Files continues to lead the ratings of sci-fi shows for the week with a 9.4! Dark Angel is not too far behind at 7.4!

LORD OF THE RINGS: I guess some people will do ANYTHING for a buck! It seems that there have already been four arrests associated with this film. People have stolen documents and photos and scripts have turned up on the internet for sale!

LADY AND THE TRAMP II: Disney has a lot to be happy about! According to the Hollywood Reporter, Lady and the Tramp II: Scamp's Adventure has generated an estimated $50 million in gross revenue in less than a week of release on VHS and DVD. Tramp II is on its way to a record-breaking 1 million-unit mark in its first seven days on store shelves.

A SOUND OF THUNDER: The screen adaptation of Ray Bradbury's A Sound of Thunder has hit a few snags. Variety reports that the film is undergoing rewrites that have delayed production. Thunder is a time-travel story of a big game hunter (played by Pierce Brosnan) who goes into the prehistoric past to bag a dinosaur only to drastically alter the timeline due to a thoughtless action.

HENSON: The Hollywood Reporter indicates that there are financial woes at the Jim Henson Co. Many speculate that the company will be on the auction block soon due to an ongoing shake-up at its German parent company, Munich-based EM.TV & Merchandising. There is interest from the Walt Disney Co. and Viacom, both of which made offers for the company when Henson was on the block in late 1999. Since Henson produces Farscape, we'll have to see if there is any impact on the show.

FARSCAPE: Anna L. Kaplan has developed an interesting two-part retrospective of the show. It has been posted at the www.fandom.com website. For fans of the series, it gives you most of the highlights from season one and two. Great way to fill in the blanks -- if you have any.

March 8:
DARK ANGEL: Nana Visitor, who you will all remember as Kira Nerys in Star Trek: Deep Space Nine, has signed on to appear in the final five first-season episodes of Dark Angel. She will play the villainous Madam X.

NEXT TREK: Bryan Fuller, co-producer of Voyager, is considering signing onto the upcoming Trek series. He wasn't at liberty to devulge any details, but he did say that Voyager executive producer "Brannon [Braga] had told him a little bit about the next series, and everything that he had told him sounds really exciting. I guess time will tell.

ROBOCOP: RoboCop: Prime Directives, will air on SCIFI this summer. This will be the US premiere of the miniseries, based on characters in Paul Verhoeven's 1987 feature film RoboCop.

CHARITY AUCTION: Harrison Ford's Indiana Jones bullwhip sold for $74,000 and Liam Neeson's Star Wars: Episode I lightsaber fetched $54,000 in an auction of movie memorabilia to benefit children at risk for AIDS in Africa. Reuters reported that the props were part of a 15-lot auction by Sotheby's that raised a total of $406,850 so far, with another 77 items still on the block.

March 7:
TOP TEN: According to Sci-Fi Wire, here's the top 10 sci fi shows for the week: The X-Files 3.7; Andromeda 3.6; 3rd Rock 3.4; Xena 3.1; Stargate SG-1 2.9; Earth: Final Conflict 2.3; Profiler 2.0; Invisible Man 1.8; The Outer Limits 1.8 and Relic Hunter 1.7.

SPIDERMAN: Sam Raimi is going for a PG-13 rating for the upcoming Spiderman movie. "The movie is really being made for the whole family."

Tragedy struck the set of Spiderman on Tuesday when a construction worker, building a NYC building facade on a set in Downey, CA was killed. A crew was working to replicate the top two floors of a 1930s-style building when a crane hauling a large metal cage (which contained a sign) toppled over on its side. The falling crane smashed into a platform on which two welders were working. One man was struck by the sign; the other escaped injury.

JUSTICE LEAGUE: The Cartoon Network is working on a new animated series based on the comic book favorite, the Justice League. Aquaman will join Flash, Wonder Woman, Hawkgirl, Martian Manhunter and a black Green Lantern. They will start with 26 all-original half hours of Justice League, but a premiere date has not been announced.

VOYAGER: Voyager executive producer Ken Biller talked to Cinescape on-line about the series finale of Voyager. "I can tell you this, the finale will involve the Borg, which has always been Voyager's arch-nemesis." The series ends on May 23, but will not lead into the new Star Trek series which is still under development.

STAR TREK: A while back, I mentioned that the original Star Trek movie would be coming out on DVD. Robert Wise was very pleased at the outcome and here are some new images that will be included on the revised version of the movie. http://filmforce.ign.com/news/2115.html has 6 new images that are absolutely terrific.

March 6:
ELVIRA: Yes, Elvira is back! Elvira's Haunted Hills has a new website, complete with images and a trailer.

VOYAGER: SciFiWire talked to Bryan Fuller--co-producer of Star Trek: Voyager recently. According to him, the last few episodes will see the return of some familiar faces. "We'll see Lt. [Joseph] Carey [played by Josh Clark] and Lt. Vorik [played by Alexander Enberg] again, who are two recurring characters on the show in previous seasons." Read the article to see who else will be making putting in appearances.

WITCHBLADE: According to Variety, TNT will air new episodes of Witchblade between reruns of Law & Order, starting in June. The show will most likely air at 9 p.m. on a weeknight to be determined. TNT has ordered 11 episodes so we'll see where it goes from there.

LONE GUNMEN: The X-File spin-off series got off to a great start on Sunday night. They drew in 13.1 million viewers and won its 9-10 p.m. slot in the key adults 18-49 demographic.

March 5:
MOVIE TRAILERS: The internet is proving to be quite an advance man as far as movies are concerned. Major studios all release trailers of their leading movies well in advance of their opening on the big screen. This week SCIFI has a poll -- you can pick the best of three trailers. The choices are Harry Potter, Planet of the Apes and The Mummy Returns. So far, the Mummy is ahead!

HANNIBAL: Hannibal will hit the networks in 2003, but Ridley Scott says nearly an hour of additional footage may be put back into the film before that version airs. Yes, the original was nearly 3 hours long! Chances are the new footage will make it to the DVD version of the movie as well.


Jeanne Cavelos Jeanne Cavelos has authored a number of fantastic books, including Babylon 5 Novel #7 "The Shadow Within". Here latest nove, "Casting Shadows" is the first in a technomage trilogy. She will have the second Technomage novel out this summer and she is currently finishing up #3. I've always wondered how a writer writes! Here's your chance to ask how Jeanne pulls a story together. Join us for a chat at SCIFI, March 15, pm ET. To join the chat, go to www.scifi.com/chat and choose the link for the chat. You can use an IRC client for this one -- just to go irc.scifi.com and go to the #auditorium for the chat.

To learn more about Jeanne, visit her website at www.sff.net/people/jcavelos. Jeanne is a scientist, mathametician and author! She's worked with NASA and Harlan Ellison on a writing series! I'm sure you will find her an interesting person to chat with.

Casting Shadows


"Babylon 5: Casting Shadows" Jeanne Cavelos' trilogy on the Technomage is out. Part two, "Summoning Light", will be released in July! DelRey website has the books available for ordering now. The synopsis up on "Summoning Light" is quite a teaser!


This week we see "Sleeping in Light" -- probably the most remembered of all B5 episodes! There are those who cry everytime they watch it; there are those that were disappointed by it! What did you think of it? Did this close the series for you?

Let us know how you feel about this emotional episode. Send in your own thoughts to either TheZocalo@aol.com or b5web@aol.com.. You can also post your comments on the message board at www.isnnews.net/board. To see what other readers have posted on this and other topics, follow this link to Current Discussion Topic page.

Personally, "Objects at Rest" is my favorite -- since I'm in it! Yes, I was in the crowd scene with a zillion other extras! This was the final episode shot of the series and quite emotional for everyone at the studio. John Copeland was a terrific director for this one!


Ranger Andres has sent up the following schedule for B5: Every Tuesday at 8:00p.m. and 11:00p.m E.T.

Objects in motion 03-06
Objects at rest 03-13
Sleeping in Light 03-20
Re-run Season ? 03-27

Ranger Doron reports that on the 17th of March, there will be a B5 Chat at Goldkanal (www.goldkanal.de) at 20:00. This in in light of the fact that Sleeping In Light will re-air (as season 4-5 was reaired). The chat will be via irc or a Java-Webinterface. The irc chanel will be IRCnet and the channel name "#trekzone". For more info, please visit http://chat.goldkanal.de.

A Behind-the-Scenes look at Peter Woodward's show on ancient Egypt and the pyramids is currently showing on the History Channel. The actual program will air in May.

Rick Biggs is currently appearing in the critically acclaimed play "Tracers" at the Odyssey theatre, L.A.. The play is about the "Vietnam experience", and it's extended until March 18, 2001. More information available at www.odysseytheatre.com.

On March 26th, JMS will be doing a panel discussion on writing for the fantastic, which will be carried via satellite to various universities and the two divisions of the Museum of Television and Radio. The panel will feature JMS, Harlan Ellison, Chris Carter and 1-2 others TBD. Richard Matheson has been added to the panel.

Stephen Austin the wonderful Pak'Ma'Ra Ambassador from Babylon 5, is playing "Herr Zeller" in the Canyon Club Dinneer Theatre's production of "The Sound of Music". The theatre is located in Agoura Hills, California. The play will run from February 3 to March 11, 2001.

As soon as he finishes "The Sound of Music", Stephen will jump into THE 1940's RADIO HOUR in the role of "Lou", March 30 - May 6, 2001 at the The Conjeo Player's Theatre in Thousand Oaks, Califronia.

Searcher Bruce Boxleitner's new novel, Frontier Earth: Searcher, can be obtained at www.amazon.com. Bruce just finished a brief signing tour at some bookstores in the LA area. I hope the tour will venture out a little -- like here on the East Coast!!!!


Terry Jones' put a tremendous amount of time and effort into creating a Babylon 5/Crusade Chronology that was published in the Official Babylon 5 magazine.

Last month, I started the Sheridan Chronology over at The Galactic Gateway. Part II of his timeline is now up at the website. Others will follow.

This month here at The Zocalo Today, you'll find, The 20th Century, which recounts events that have some impact on Babylon 5.


CultTimes #66 CULT TIMES #66: What's happening with Earth: Final Conflict. CT has an interview with Robert Leeshock. With Voyager winding down, Robert Picardo talks about what lies ahead in the two-hour special Flesh and Blood.

TVZone #136 TV ZONE #136: Renee O'Connor has spent the last six years on Xena. As that series comes to an end, Renee looks back over the highs and lowes of the show, talks about directing and working with Lucy Lawless. Farscape fans will enjoy an interview with Lani Tupu who plays both Crais and Pilot on the series. Skaara is back on Stargate SG-1 and Alex Cruz talks about his recurring role.

Expose #53 EXPOSE #53: Stargate is one of my favorite shows and it's great to see Richard Dean Anderson grace the cover of a magazine now and again. RDA talks about fatherhood as well as the upcoming season! Pretender 2001 did VERY well when it aired on TNT last month. In this issue you can read all about the new movie and the cast.


Sad news. I don't know what the fate of the B5 Fan Club will be. Netter Digital filed for bankruptcy in July and all their worldly posessions were auctioned off on December 7. Thestation.com is back on-line, however the Emporium has been closed.

The Official Babylon 5 Magazine is indexed here as well. With the closure of the magazine in May, you'll want to see which magazines you have -- and which ones you will want to collect. The index may help you make a decision on which ones to choose. The Fan Club has many of the issues at thestation.com , making it very easy to complete your collection.

Universe Today -- the Babylon 5 Fan Club quarterly can also be found here. The index gives you a rundown of what articles were presented, what interviews published.

If you have magazines that have featured Babylon 5 or Crusade that are not listed, send along their issue number and a note to indicate what the article was about. It would be nice to have a fairly comprehensive listing of Babylon 5 publications here.

I have added a listing of all the Babylon 5 novels and now the B5 comic books to the reference page. If there are other items that you feel should be included, let me know.



Here's a unique site for you!

Eric dropped me a note the other day providing information about a Club in France. I know there are other clubs in Brazil, Germany, Russia -- and who knows how many here in the US. Let's get a listing together. Perhaps we can share resources, even get together as we travel around. Drop the information about your Club to me at sgbruckner@aol.com or bruckner@isnnews.net. That information will be added to the new B5 Fan Club Listing.


If you have a newsletter you'd like to have listed at The Zocalo Today, send the information along. It will be posted on the B5 Fan Club/Newsletter page.

Shane Killian, Editor


Recently, I watched some of the Documentary "Trekkies" and only managed to get about halfway through it, before the whole thing frustrated me. I believe that Babylon 5 is just as worthy as any of the Treks, and more worthy than most of them.I would like to write a piece about the positive effects of Babylon 5, and explore B5'ers reactions. Thusly, I appeal to all those out there to send me the positive reactions, responses, to Babylon 5. How has it inspired you? How has it impacted on your life? How do you show that you are a fan of this show? I would love and welcome all responses and will distill them down and write an article that will appear in the Zocalo on the outcome of this appeal. Please have your responses in by Feb. 20th, or so. I will be most interested in what I do receive. Send them to my e-mail address, at CCB5Flamekeeper@aol.com.

Many Thankings,
Connie Colvin

** Connie would like to make this appeal open-ended. If you have items to contribute, please pass them along to her.

Ed Wasser - March 26

Have I missed anyone? If you know the birthday of someone connected with Babylon 5, pass the information along. We want to include everyone in our Happy Birthday Wishes.


Here's a recent note from JMS on the subject:

Just an FYI to those who've been using the Ventura Blvd. mail drop for fan mail to actors....

As mentioned before, we're phasing out the forwarding of fan mail because we a) don't have the resources, complicated by b) the actors have scattered to the four winds, and it makes it very difficult to get everything to everybody in a timely fashion.

So, having provided prior notice...fan mail to actors coming to the Ventura Blvd. mail drop will be sent back. Mail to actors should be sent via their official fan clubs. I will still be taking mail there, since it's my mailbox, but that's it.

Just so's y'all know and save a few bucks on postage and returns.

JMS' mail can be sent to:

14431 Ventura Boulevard, PMB 260
Sherman Oaks, CA 91423


The front page of the The Zocalo Today changes daily, so be sure to check the back issues to make sure that you haven't missed anything IMPORTANT! I don't want the front page getting too long so I shift information periodically into the archives. So if you aren't a regular visitor to The Zocalo Today, be sure to check out the back issues. Just use the button above!


NEW FLYER AVAILABLE: If you would like to take some flyers to a convention to help spread the word that The Zocalo is here and ready to provide you with information on everything Babylon 5 and Crusade! drop me a line. I'll be glad to send you some in the mail. I've created a PDF file that can be downloaded and printed. Flyer Thanks for helping to spread the word about The Z!

Take care and I look forward to hearing from you.
