Any Baylon 5 fans?

Postby stryderg » Wed Oct 26, 2016 1:50 pm

I was poking around the internet and ran across some fan fiction about the Dilgar War.
https://www.fanfiction.net/s/2594689/1/The-Dilgar-War

1.2 million words, so kind of long. I'm on chapter 30 (out of 104), so about 1/3 through. It's rough, above average number of misspellings, some tense problems, odd phrasing here and there, etc. But a fun read. It uses or mentions some of the B5 characters in their younger days...the Dilgar War was 30 years before B5. We meet Garibaldi's parents and some of Londo's friends (not Calrissian, that's the wrong universe). Deathwalker (Jha'dur) is a major character even though she was only mentioned once during the series (from what I remember). You almost feel sorry for her, at the beginning.

The way the webpage is setup, you have to read it online. I find that annoying, but I think the story is worth the hassle. Your mileage may vary.

Cool, thanks! B5 was one of the best scifi shows produced, whole new flavor (non-Trek) that created the story arc style that was adopted by other shows.

It was the dawn of the Third Age of Mankind, ten years after the Earth-Minbari War. The Babylon Project was a dream given form...

Thank you for the link. I just happen to be re-watching the series on DVD, so this is timely!

I'll probably start re-watching the series soon. This book mentions ship classes and semi-vaguely describes weapon types and tactics differences between some of the non-main races. Hyack, Brakiri, Balonians, etc. Lots of fodder for Star Navy.

B5 had the most colourful but the darkest universe. This show was the best sci-fi series on TV and it deserves a reboot.
New Stephen King's book is amazing. Any paper writer would agree.
