Babylon 5 at Twenty
20th Anniversary Coffee Table Book
Multimedia Edition

It's Everything in the Babylon 5 at Twenty Coffee Table Book
...and So Much More

Fans have gone so bananas over the Multimedia Edition of the Babylon 5 Encyclopedia, so we wanted to give the same treatment to our other most popular release: the full-color coffee table book "Babylon 5 at Twenty: A Visual Celebration."

With this Multimedia Edition, you could spend minutes in spaces you only saw onscreen for mere seconds.


FEATURES

Experience the original book
Includes all of the layouts from the original book with their original aspect ratio (nothing is cropped).
Experience the detail of full size images
Every image from the original layouts separated on its own.

Experience unbroken images
No seams in the middle of page spreads – we were surprised at what a difference this makes.

Tons of reference videos...
...from Babylon 5 that bring each layout to life...connecting the dots between the images in the book and what you actually saw on screen.

Access it from anywhere
Available via browser on mobile, tablet, laptop, desktop computer or on the big screen.

Experience it together
Enjoy it "bigger than life" on a large flatscreen...and share it with your family and friends.

Look up information
Caption content hyperlinked to the Babylon 5 Encyclopedia (separate membership required).
PLUS...

  • Pinch and Zoom images – discover details you may have missed in the book.
  • Advanced Searching – instantly find the exact image you're looking for.
CRITICAL NOTE
With a few exceptions, none of this content is expected to be in the forthcoming, not-yet-announced 25th Anniversary Secret Project. Virtually everything in this Multimedia Edition of B5-20 is exclusive.

Experience Six Info-Packed Tours of the B5-20 Layouts
Tour #1: Original Spreads Page by Page
It's as if the book were in front of you.

Tour #2: By Character
Delight in the detail of each character's quarters, costumes and customs.

Tour #3: By Place
From Centauri Prime to Mars, the diversity is inspiring.

Tour #4: Transportation/Ships
Because the Encyclopedia is canonical you don't get to see the behind the scenes of the ships the way you do in Babylon 5 at Twenty, complete with concept art.

Tour #5: Behind the Scenes
The cast having fun (in and out of costume), how the show was shot, and what happened between takes.

Tour #6: Chronologically as the show evolved
It's like watching Babylon 5 grow up as you see the layouts from the first frame to the last. The style, design and sheer craft matures with the show. B5-20 covers everything from the pilot through The Lost Tales.

RECAP
  • No seams between page layouts.
  • Every detail from the original layouts is blown-up for detail.
  • Searching – instantly find the exact image you're looking for.
  • Caption content hyperlinked to the Babylon 5 Encyclopedia (separate membership required).
  • Tons of reference videos from Babylon 5 that bring each layout to life.
  • Enjoy it "bigger than life" on a large flatscreen...and share it with your family and friends.
  • Pay once, access forever.
  • Portable - always have it with you via tablet, phone or connected computer.
  • No shipping charges, import fees, tax or VAT.
  • Takes up less space/weighs nothing.
  • Experience the layouts in 6 different tours.
With all the bonus content and detailed image blowups, if printed, the Multimedia Edition would be three times more pages than the original coffee table book.

WHY THIS MULTIMEDIA EDITION IS SO IMPORTANT

We believe that to appreciate Babylon 5 you need two references:
the Babylon 5 Encyclopedia and this, Babylon 5 at Twenty.

To stand behind that statement
we've priced pre-orders at only $37.
Yes, $37.
Lifetime Access.

That's more than 50% off the final price of $76.

FAQ
WHY PRE-ORDERS FOR A DIGITAL PRODUCT?
Bandwidth. We are hosting the Multimedia Edition with the same folks as the Babylon 5 Encyclopedia Multimedia Edition, and we need to give them a head count on our traffic needs so that everyone has a good experience.

DO I HAVE TO HAVE A SMART TV?
No. Smart TVs are internet-enabled and make showing the content easier through a built-in browser. You can connect any computer to a flat screen as well.

WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE BABYLON 5 AT TWENTY MULTIMEDIA EDITION AND AN EBOOK?
An eBook is generally just text and images. This Multimedia Edition incorporates video, audio, images and documents to provide an experience that would be impossible with an eBook.

DO I HAVE TO PAY A MONTHLY FEE OR UPGRADE FEE AT ANY TIME?
Absolutely not. Pay once, access for a lifetime. This edition is being hosted by Cablan.net which is owned by a Babylon 5 mega-fan. We have pre-paid the first 10 years of hosting.

HOW MANY DEVICES CAN I ACCESS THE ENCYCLOPEDIA FROM?
As many as you own. We monitor Internet IP addresses to make sure there isn't any password sharing. We don't limit the devices because we know so many fans have multiple tablets, smart phones and computers. For those who don't have fixed IPs or use public WiFi, know that one-off logins from different IP addresses are NOT triggered. It's when our security software sees Dubai, Denver and San Diego in the same day that it will flag your account.

CAN I SHARE MY PASSWORD WITH MY KIDS / SPOUSE / SIGNIFICANT OTHER?
Yes. Your license is for a household and/or family (and we accept all definitions of the word "family").

WHERE DO I ACCESS THE ONLINE MULTIMEDIA EDITION?
Via a password-protected website. This is a browser-based multimedia platform that can be accessed by any computer, tablet or phone and will be properly formatted for that device.

ONLINE ACCESS GUARANTEED FOREVER
When we first launched a few fans expressed concern about the Multimedia Edition disappearing one day. We now have a solution so that this doesn't happen.

First we have pre-paid 10 years of hosting at Cablan.net. All Babylon 5 Books team members (most of whom are under 42) have the passwords and daily backups at the ready. These Zathri have permission to give folks who ordered, access to the files and/or put them back online if the site should go offline for any reason.

Frankly we can't think of a scenario where this would/could happen, but we've had it happen to us, so we are happy to provide peace of mind.

WHAT IS YOUR REFUND POLICY FOR THE BABYLON 5 AT TWENTY MULTIMEDIA EDITION?
Spend as much time as you like exploring. If it doesn't meet your expectations, email us at help@b5books.com and we will refund 100% of what you paid.

WHEN DOES THE DISCOUNT PERIOD END?
October 31.

WHEN DO I GET ACCESS?
On Thursday, November 15, 2018, we will be emailing logins.

We launched the Babylon 5 Encyclopedia Multimedia Edition right on schedule and we expect the same with Babylon 5 at Twenty.
