The Asimov is a specific liner, it's just the one that's around B5 the most. Some sources use the name for the class, as people used Hyperion for Earth Force's Heavy Cruiser class. It's just that Hyperion has stuck in people's minds, and become almost canon (or possibly truly canon, JMS may have sai...

The Companion got delayed significantly. It needed too much work, and there wasn't enough time in the schedule. I think it's due towards the beginning of next year

Refering to them as 'Mutts' may well be something that the troopers do, rather than the official name.

I'm pretty sure that they were dropped reasonably late on, although I'm pretty sure they'll be in ACTA.

Turhan and Cartagia will be first names, or possibly names made up on their ascension, in the same way that Monarchs are refered to by first name (you'd get a chain of King Windsor the whatever, or King Tudor the whatever otherwise) Valen is likley to take the rarity of Jesus in Modern Christian Com...

There's a piece on Narn names in the Regime factbook about their naming conventions, with a list of popular prefixes; It's on p35.

It's not out yet. The look ahead for the Mongoose thread in the main forum mentions it as 'Into the Crucible', so I think that means it's due for the end of the year.

One impression I have always gotten from the series is that Earth medical technology is very advanced compared to the rest of the younger races. When the Centauri Emporer was dying, they left him in the care of B5, even though his personal cruiser (which undoubtedly had a full medical suite aboard)...

And the decision to make the new box compatible with Babylon 5 Wars (which I didn't know) and the new RPG line is in my eyes a pleasing one for all concerned. And the fact that one could even re-use the minis of B5 wars is a good one for the fans that collected/used them before. It's only scaled wi...

Will the reason for Sinclair's memory gap still be given at the end of Season 1? If it isn't, then Deleen will remain onboard as she only went initially to watch Sheridan

The Narns were maybe two or three decades in advance of our present level. Ragesh was actually colonised by Sleeper ship that was launched just before the Centauri Invasion.

The size chart in the rulebook was just taken from wherever Mongoose got their combat system from. It is not meant to be accurate, and will be replaced in aSFoS. The Hypewrion has 8 bays, 4 on each side. I'd alway presumed that they were for the 6 furies and 2 shuttles. The Hyperion herself may have...

These two White star sizes are wildly different (I ...
