Babylon 5 JMS Script Book #10

Once again the back cover features some gorgeous concept art. And inside we not only have some memorable scripts, including Rumors, Bargains and Lies, Moments of Transition, No Surrender, No Retreat, Face of the Enemy, and Intersections in Real Time. We get the story of how TNT picked up the first four seasons of Babylon 5 and four for TV movies. (The deal on the 5th season with TNT is described more in the next book.) We get the genesis of Crusade. We get the story how Intersections in Real Time started as A Passing Shadow and how fate conspired to force JMS to do with this episode what he really wanted to do from the beginning. We get the story on how particularly the end of season four was structured to end Babylon 5 if necessary. We get a look at the original treatment for season 5. And we get a look at a possible spin-off series launching from season four featuring the Rangers.
