Hi there,
I have just looked over the pen pals page on the site and I seem to see people on it from the USA or UK. Well..... here is one from way down in Africa! Zimbabwe to be precise. My story is much the same as many others. Saw the pilot (The gathering) in 1995 (We are always way behind down here), caught a couple of episodes in 2000 and was hooked. I now own the whole series including the movies on VHS and they get watched over and over and over....well, you get the point. There is a small and fanatical following in this part of the world for B5 so whoever you are out there, drop me a line and lets discuss the deeper issues relating to the plots on B5. I personally am crazed over the Vorlons.

Here's me signing off from very sunny Southern Africa (you should see the Victoria Falls now!)

"What do I want?? I want to live just long enough to be there when they cut off your head and stick it on a pike, as a reminder to the next ten generations that some favours come with too high a price. I want to look into your lifeless eyes and this." Vir talking to Mr. Morden.

From: (John Hill)

From the foothills of North Carolina, I say, "Howdy, y'all!"

My name is John T. Hill, and I am from the great metropolis of Forest City, population 8,000 (that's your cue to lol, by the way). I have been a fan of B5 since I caught the pilot while at the 1993 Phi Theta Kappa Carolinas regional convention in Myrtle Beach, S. C. I happened to return to my room after a rather raucous party to take a break, turning on the tube while getting ready for some more fun downstairs. I only caught about twenty minutes of it before my fellow Sigma Chi chapter members came up to see what happened to me. Later on, when I got back home, I caught the pilot and I was hooked. Ever since then, I have been a big B5 fan.

My other interests include: Starblazers (an anime cartoon that aired in the US from 1979-81), sci-fi, alternate history, football, baseball, basketball, history, politics, surfing the web, writing fanfic, and pro wrestling (go figure!).

I hope to attend Appalachian State University (Go Mountaineers!) in the fall of 2001, where I hope to revive my "View From The Hill" column (I was the editor of Isothermal C. C.'s student newspaper 1994), and get an air shift on the student radio station. I plan to major in History, Secondary Education, and hope to eventually be a college professor.

I look forward from hearing from all of you!

Is there anyone out there across the pond who would like to share views/ideas on B5 with an English fan of the show ?

I've watched it since the first episode and still, given the fact that B5 is pretty dead over here now, remain quite worryingly obsesssed with it all......(this is you understand, just not British). My friends glaze over if I mention the show, and my husband considers me seriously son is too busy swopping Pokemon cards to care. Is there anyone out there???????

Subj: Looking for fans

From: (Verhanovitz Bryan)

Hi all,

Just looking for some fans to correspond with. I love B5 and Crusade, but I must live in some cultural void, no one here (newly NJ) has any idea what I'm talking about. Talking on the phone with my mom (the only other person I know who I ever convinced to watch B5) is just WAY boring! We can only re-hash how many ways Londo sold his soul to every devil by bombarding the Narn homeworld so many times. And, unfortunately, the finace is not so much of a sci-fi fan. She likes to read it, but it's not so important to her. HELP! Need to discuss!

Re: B5 and all the other really important things in life

Hello fellow fans! I'm crawling out from my Down Below closet. Yes, I confess, for quite some time now I've been one of "them," those people you know are hiding out down there but never seem to connect with what's really going on; that's right I am (gasp!) a lurker.

I only came to B5 a little over a year ago really. I had seen bits and pieces of an episode or two over the years, but it was always the same bits out of the same couple of episodes and they made no sense. Besides, I've been a Trekker since I was seven; any other sci-fi/fantasy in my life had to be in print (Heinlein, Bova, Clarke, Tolkien, Card, Lackey, Kurtz, Anthony, Bradbury, Eddings, well that's enough). However, one day IT happened. I came home early from work and started flipping channels. I settled at TNT and the last 15-20 of what I now know is "The Summoning." From "Well, I'll be damned," to "Will you stand together?" to "I'll never leave you," I was intrigued. Two episodes later my VCR and I were completely and irrevocably hooked. This series has almost everything, even stuff it doesn't intend because of what I read into it from my own literary background. I have been a lurker because no one around me except for my 8-year old son shares this obsession. I now understand what it might have been like for those hardy souls in the late '60's and early '70's who fought to keep Trek alive. There's my brief B5 testimony. As for the other important things in life. . . I am a Christian born, raised, signed, sealed, and waiting to be delivered. I am a single parent of one. I think the Boy Scouts are just about the best organization this country has to offer. I can't stand people who just talk about the problems facing our society but never walk into their child's classroom, pick up trash in the park, or otherwise use their time and talents to combat (dare I say prevent?) said problems.

And there's my soap box. I shall be most interested to see what fruit this might bear.

From: (Jan Weaver)

Hi! I'd love to have a B5 penpal!!! I am not a serious Sci-Fi enthusiast. I guess I'm more into Sci-Fantasy. I love B5, Star Wars, Battlestar Galactica, etc... I'm in it for the stories though, not for the science value.

Specifically related to B5, I love Michael Garibaldi; not to the point that I'd leave my husband for him, but I'd consider it briefly. I also have a lot of admiration for Susan Ivonova and Commander Lockley. I have no desire to be as "liberated" as they are, but again, it's nice to consider every once in a while.

As for the other aspects of my life' I'm 40, mother of one, wife of only one (ever), overweight, and one of those Born-Again, Evangelical Christians who get so much bad press. I don't consider myself a "radical", just convinced that what I believe is right for me. I'm an unemployed school counselor who is substitute teaching at this point. We have one dog, no other pets, and kill houseplants just by looking at them. Oh yes, I'm an EverQuest "widow" who will be learning how to play it as soon as our new computer system arrives.

If anyone wants to correspond after all that, my e-mail is

Hi Sandy

Please can you add my email address to the list.

Particular interests - (and not necessarily because I know a lot) the ethos behind the Technomage cult and, Minbari religious beliefs and how they fit in with current thinking (or any thinking really) on alternative religions - you know paganism etc. This doesn't have to be that heavy, honestly. For instance, where did Joe get his ideas from?? - were they all made up or were any of them sourced from existing beliefs or even other sci-fi writers.

bye for now

Hey fellow B5ers. I am a massive B5 fan looking for some of the same to discuss B5/Crusade episodes with. When i say i'm a massive B5 fan, i mean it. I divorced my wife because she asked me to chose between her and B5. I couldn't have chose a better companion. I would also love to hear from Female B5 fans. I love to her a woman's take on this beloved sci fi epic.

I've been a B5 & Crusade fan since B5 first aired on television in the US. My passion for the B5 universe extends to both the series (which I have video taped) and the B5 books.

I would love to discuss the philosophical, theological,and anthropological aspects of B5/Crusade with anyone who would find such a correspondence entertaining and/or interesting. Some other SciFi TV shows I enjoy are: Star Trek Deep Space Nine, Earth: Final Conflict, and The X-Files.
