You may already know that Fredrik and I are big fans of Babylon 5, but here is the proof. It just so happened that as I was updating my B5 site, I found an announcement in the newsgroups about a special and exclusive event which J. Michael Straczynski (writer/creator of B5) would be attending in Vancouver, BC. JMS is an extremely busy man and does not do appearances often but since he is now working in BC on a new project (B5: Legend of the Rangers, a TV movie/possible series for the SciFi Channel), he agreed to do this one. So, I had the incredible good luck to participate in a gathering of fans from the Northwest on this very special occasion.

I used Photoshop to brighten up the pictures since they were so dark so I hope they turned out OK. We have a new digital camera that we are still trying to learn how to use properly and the lighting in the lecture hall was very dim. There is a great report (and some more pictures) about the Gathering written by some of the organizers. Also, if you recognize any of the events/pictures/stories that go with these pictures, please email me.

Dean's (Malcolm) "truth" was that he is a rapper at heart since he did a little rap when he got the mic.

Jennie's (Na'Feel) "truth" is yet another one that I don't remember. Boy, my memory sucks!

Ah, I think someone turned up the lights and we got a better picture of the cast of Babylon 5: Legend of the Rangers.

The cast of B5LR were great sports about chatting with us and answering what was most certainly their first B5 fan experience.

The Great Maker again, probably answering a question from the audience.

After the question and answer segment, we file out of the lecture room and get in line for the autograph segment. Here is Fredrik and a new friend to the right of him that we gave a ride to the Gathering, Richard Postgate.

I snuck around to the head of the line to take a few pictures. You can see JMS, Enid Raye Adams (Firell) and Gus Lynch (Tirk) in between the fans getting autographs.

Peaking through the line of fans is Warren Takeuchi (Kitaro Sasaki) who is a cutie! I actually chatted with him for a little while after I got my autographs about our common heritage. I am so happy to see an asian in this movie ... especially when an actor of Japanese decent plays a Japanese charactor. Also, it was really sweet when he got embarrassed when I told him how attractive he was. [:)]
