  • The Very Long Night of Londo Mollari
  • The Paragon of Animals

This is it. This is the motherlode. This is the volume everyone's been waiting for.

Because of a last-minute decision to continue telling the story of the making of BABYLON 5 in chronological order, and because "Sleeping in Light" was originally shot at the conclusion of season four, an executive decision was made (translation: we got a call from JMS) that it would be included in this volume.

So the seven scripts in Volume 11 contain the replacement season four finale, "The Deconstruction of Falling Stars," the season five debut "No Compromises" AND the ultimate B5 episode, "Sleeping in Light," as well as "Endgame," which saw the birth of the Interstellar Alliance, "The Very Long Night of Londo Mollari", "Rising Star" and "The Paragon of Animals."

In addition, and perhaps of greatest importance to those who have been waiting for the inside story on these events to be told in more detail than ever before, a 72 page, 23,000 word introduction, the longest yet, that describes everything that happened behind the scenes during the last minute doubts about, the campaigning for, and the final confirmation of a fifth season. Day by day, hour by hour, this introduction takes you right into the center of the action, the maneuvering, and the frantic, last-minute explosions that rocked the B5 universe down to its galactic core.

This, as they say...is the Big One.
