Special thanks to Mel, Mike, Dennis and John who helped organize these. Many thanks to the people who brought food. nw-b5 still maintains its reputation of being ahead in its local market from regular cable distribution when it comes to showing great SF TV shows to its membership.

  7. 05/30/01 - On May 27th, 2001, nw-b5 was blessed with the presence of the Great Maker himself at our May 2001 Gathering at Simon Fraser University. Shown were the intro music video, the blooper reel, and A FIRST - test footage of the new movie! nw-b5 saw it first and it was deadly. JMS also introduced the new B5LR cast to the world at the Gathering with 7 of 8 cast members showing up for a Q&A and autograph section.

  8. 05/01/01 - Effective today, the nw-b5 Mailing List is moving to Yahoo! Groups. This may be a temporary move as someone on the list has volunteered to host it locally. However, nw-b5-info is gone. From now on I will only maintain one subscriber base. Please visit the nw-b5 subscription page that has been set up there for all subscription/unsubscription info.

  9. 04/13/01 - The production office has been established in Vancouver. Set construction is under way. The new series is Called B5: The Legend of the Rangers. Plans are to do a movie, miniseries, then full blown series. A website has been established to promote all things B5LR. They are at http://www.b5lr.com . There is also a B5LR mailing list at Yahoogroups you can subscribe to.

  10. 03/15/01 - nw-b5 gathered for the first time in 2 years on Feb.24 and March 3 to watch the next best thing on TV to B5 - The Dune Miniseries. It puts the Lynch film to shame. Locale was the new CR2K which succeeded Caffe Azzurri. This represents a step away just from things B5.

  11. 05/27/99 - nw-b5 had a well established presence at V-Con 24 with a table right near registration. Dennis Kristos moderated a very informative panel about the Crusade situation and brought to everyone's attention the need to increase awareness about this on both sides of the border. Bottom line: everyone has to write. See the petitions below.

  12. 12/18/98 - 250 people showed up for our Final Season 5 Gathering. Many tears were shed at the episodes as this masterpiece of modern television comes to a close. Trevor Bradley also said good-bye to nw-b5. Details can be found here.
