Babylon 5 Station News - December 1996

by Denise Chochrek

Welcome to the ongoing gathering of Babylon 5 fans on the Aphelion. In the months ahead I hope to expand this area, but I will need your help. Let me know what you like or dislike, what is missing, and what you always wanted to know. Together I'm sure we will make this a great place to visit.
-- Denise


The following schedule is based on the Lurker's Guide. Please check your local listings, as various areas enjoy not being consistent.

Heard on the Net

According to the press release from Netter Digital Entertainment, the tentative title of the Babylon 5 spinoff series is Babylon 5: Crusaders. The new series will focus on the Rangers. Of course, there is no guarantee the series will be made at all, but we can keep our fingers crossed.

If you haven't heard yet, there is a letter writing campaign underway to support Babylon 5. Everyone is asked to write your local TV station is support of the show. If you need a contact try http://www.babylon5.com (the Official site) for an address.

If you are collecting the Babylon 5 trading cards, the second set is out from Fleer.

Slow Dazzle is producing a Babylon 5 calendar in the UK. It can be purchased from the Official Babylon 5 web site.

As always, if you hear anything, please let me know.
