To start off with, more gorgeous concept art on the back cover. Inside, we get everything from “A View from the Gallery” to “Phoenix Rising”, thus finishing the telepath arc. We not only get more photographs, we also get symbols, languages, badges and banners of all kinds and from all worlds. JMS goes through some notes and memos detailing how the season 5 opening was created. It is explained how Harlan Ellison inspired “A View from the Gallery”, JMS’s real life connection to “Learning Curve” – and why he feels it doesn’t work, the problem of Byran and why the telepath arc never quite worked the way JMS wanted it to, the return of Na’Toth, and much more.
