One war ends, another begins! Volume 9 of the Babylon 5 Scripts of J. Michael Straczynski brings you the end of the Shadow War, and the commencement, up-close and personal, of the Earth Civil War. Included in this volume you will get the following seven scripts -- count 'em, seven, not just one, like some others might do, we shouldn't name names, live in peace, we say, live long and prosper even...but still, we've got SEVEN scripts -- for these pivotal fourth season episodes.

SCRIPTS

  • Into the Fire
  • Epiphanies
  • The Illusion of Truth
  • Atonement
  • Racing Mars
  • Lines of Communication
  • Conflicts of Interest

And as if that weren't enough -- and for some people it is, no names, just saying -- there's another original 51 page introduction with episodic commentaries that gives readers an inside-out view of the production of Babylon 5: a word-picture tour of the studio, a glimpse into the behind-the-scenes wrangling over DVDs and video releases, concerns over the end of B5 in its fourth year coming to a head, and an extensive look into the makings of these pivotal episodes.

PLUS...a collection of behind-the-scenes photos, JMS's own original outline for one of the Babylon 5 novels, never previously released, AND his outline for an arc of the Babylon 5 comic that shows the story of Valen, along with a partial B5 comics script by JMS!

All of this for considerably less than you would spend on an aircraft carrier, a cloned velociraptor, or a juicer. What more can you ask for?
