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.

I got a fairly good photo of the end of the autograph line with Jennie Hogan (Na'Feel), Myriam Sirois (Sarah Cantrell) and a potential favorite, Warren Takeuchi (Kitaro Sasaki).

Guess what this photo is ... no really ... guess! Ok, you are right ... I thought what better way to memorialize this occasion but to have a picture of some random guy's head and the ceiling. [:)]

JMS was posing for a photo for someone else and I was trying to capitalize on their photo-op. However, I got there too late and the previous picture was the result of that effort. Thankfully, JMS saw this and kindly asked the fans in line to part for a moment and I got this nice shot.

Another peak through the fan line at Myriam (Sarah) who has as pretty of a name as she is in person.

Here we are getting close to our turn in the autograph line and I took a picture down the line. The Great Maker, Alex (Dulann), Enid Raye (Firell), Gus (Tirk), and Dean (Malcolm) at the beginning of the next table.

Alex (Dulann) and Enid Raye (Firell) signing autographs with Gus (Tirk) in the back. There were quite a few digital cameras and it looks like Enid was checking out a photo that a fan took.

A good picture of JMS, Alex (Dulann) and Enid Raye (Firell). Interesting that they sat the two Minbari next to each other. [:)] Plus, you can see a few things that we got signed at the bottom-left of the photo.

Ah, what a great picture of some of the cast. There is Dean (Malcolm), Jennie (Na'Feel) posing with a funny face with Myriam looking on with amusement. I wonder how comfortable these actors are with getting so many pictures in such a small amount of time? However, they were great about it and seemed to truely enjoy being there.

This is Myriam (Sarah) and Warren (Kitaro) ... a cute couple (if they were a couple, which they are not) and I thought they were the cutest out of a bunch of great looking folks.
