It was. The show was being cancelled and was then suddenly renewed at the last minute, so Straczynski kept the finale in his pocket for Season 5.


Yup, exactly right. I told this story in my previous post about JMS' story that was quoted from the Season 5 DVD.

Faith manages.

I especially liked how even supremely advanced beings couldn't shrug off a nuke. Of course Sheridan wasn't using little firecrackers either. 500 MT will get anyone's attention. Smile

And he used TWO of them at once at Z'ha'dum. You can bet your @$$ that a 1 gigaton explosion on someone's capital city is GUARANTEED to get their attention. Not to mention the other two times Sheridan used nukes: 1) to kill the Black Star during the Mimbari War and 2) again at Coriana 6 to get the attention of BOTH the Vorlons and Shadows at once.

The Mimbari called him "Sheridan Starkiller" but the fans call him "John 'Nuke 'em' Sheridan." When you can say without equivocation or exaggeration that you earned your nickname "Nuke 'em," that's badass.

We're quickly approaching the 25th anniversary of the show's premiere, but I haven't seen anything about it. Given the dwindling number of cast and how well received it's been, I'm a bit disappointed that we're not seeing a mini celebration for the best sci-fi series ever made.

Of the original cast, I count the following:

- Peter Jurasik
- Mira Furlan
- Bruce Boxleitner (currently guest starring on Supergirl)
- Billy Mumy
- Andrea Thompson
- Tracy Scoggins
- Pat Tallman
- Jason Carter
- Walter Koenig
- Claudia Christiansen
- Robin Atkin Downes

I think that's basically it for the main cast. I know Robin does a lot of v/o work these days. Walter Koenig is in his 80s, so he's probably not doing the cons so much. The rest...who knows.

Certainly enough to have a panel and most of them got along (according to what I've read and anecdotes from Jason Carter). I'd also add Josh Cox (Lt. Corwin) to the list. He was the most prolific minor star and probably has a unique perspective on the show.

Oh, yeah, we can't forget Lt. Corwin. The Everyman character who winds up getting "Ivanova Lessons" and actually taking them to heart can't help but be awesome.

David Corwin: [more Soul Hunter ships arrive] Okay, activate defense grid. Launch all Starfuries. And if they move shoot 'em. If they don't move, shoot twice. They're probably hiding something.


Yeah, I haven't heard of any B5 anecdotes from Josh Coxx. I'd love to hear the stories he'd have to tell.

I see Bruce Boxleitner will appear at Cyphacon in April. That's not too far from me. Going to meet Captain Sheridan! Hopefully he'll write "Nuke 'em" on one autograph and "Ramming Speed" on the other. It's so much more relevant than the usual 'best wishes' or 'LLAP'. Cool
