We are one by Amras-Arfeiniel We are one by Amras-Arfeiniel
This work is for all the people who keep saying that the story of the Babylon 5 universe is told.
I feel sad for your lack of imagination! (And yes, that does sound harsh...)

There are still so many loose ends and so much potential in this universe.
The end of the Babylon stations is just the end of one chapter. But there is so much more!

Oh and I don't want a reboot of something that is already great.
You don't need a new edition of one of your beloved books. If you want to read it and want to dive into its story again, you can simply read the good old book once more. Yes, it may have a few detached pages and isn't in the best shape any more. But if you loved the story, you don't care about that.






About this little comic:
I used some canon facts for this and filled up the rest with my own ideas.

[geek mode /on]
Some of my thoughts:
- "the two galaxies collide in four to ten billion years" (reality)
- "In the year 1,002,261, an unknown force caused Sol to go nova,... " (story)
"J. Michael Straczynski indicated that the premature nova of Earth's sun (the sun's explosion should occur much more than 1,000,000 years in the future) was caused by an enemy force opening jump points within the sun to decrease its mass. "
The sun isn't going to explode. -> Red giant. (after that it will just lose its hull and become a white dwarf. No explosion whatsoever as far as I know)
Decrease its mass?? A star needs more mass than our sun to become a supernova. (8x, 10x, 30x)
->JMS hasn't done his homework... :D

-Supernova will affect planets in a radius of 50 lightyears (Radiation) (reality)
How far away is Centauri Prime?
- "Centauri Prime is 75 light-years from the Babylon 5 station"
And earth??

- The firstones are still out there
- The story of Babylon 5 is taking place in only one galaxy. What happens in other galaxies? Are our firstones the only firstones in the universe? Would be a bit odd... Maybe JMS hasn't done his homework... again? ;)
- Who could still be a threat for high advanced races? -> The Thirdspace Aliens.
- The "Hand" could be a group of firstones that was drawn to the Thirdspace Aliens. So were they pushed back twice or more often?
[geek mode /off]

You don't need to like my idea. If you prefer a different version... well, it is just a story.
There won't be a discussion about this because where would be the point?
If you don't like it, change it in your head. :)

Personally I like the idea. And it makes sense that the First Ones, the actual First Ones that is, would be needed to fight the Third Space aliens.

Not a problem. I love newer Babylon 5 ideas, mostly cause I watched/am watching the show.

To be honest I would like a B5 the next generation sort of thing. Look at what ST:TNG did for ST, not only did it conpletely re-energize the franchise, it quite literally became the universe, leaving the well regarded, but old original Trek in the past and fully assuming the mantle of the universe.

For B5 that may be somewhat harder to do (standards have changed and been upped significantly since the times of TNG) but it isi not impossible and a new B5 series might just re-energize B5, bring it fully into modern times and maybe even gives us more of what we loved about the original

I agree someone need to talk to JMS about it. :D
But keep in mind though "Babylon 5 is the last of the Babylon Stations. There will never be another..."

They could focus on Babylon 4 during the 1st Shadow War.
A new series based on that station.

I think Crusade didn't manage to find its footing in time, which made WB lost their patience. Not that they were known for great patience.

Awesome little story.  Now I may need to go marathon a certain series because this totally reignites that love affair with Babylon 5 all over again.  Not that it's a bad thing.

Didn't we cause Sol to go nova ourselves? That was always the impression I got.

Also, the Thirdspace aliens are from 'Thirdspace', not the Andromeda Galaxy.

:iconamras-arfeiniel:
Amras-Arfeiniel Featured By Owner Sep 12, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
According to JMS it was an unknown force and if you read more carefully you will see that I didn't say that they are coming for the Andromeda Galaxy in the first place. ;)

"For"? Do you mean "from"?
That's just how it sounded to me. Why else would the Andromeda Galaxy be involved?
Reply
:iconamras-arfeiniel:
Amras-Arfeiniel Featured By Owner Sep 14, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
Yes sure I meant "from"...

"Living in the nearby Andromeda galaxy were just such a firstone race and like the Vorlons before them they made a cataclysmic error. They opened a doorway to another universe and in doing so released a near unstoppable foe."

I think that is clear enough. o0

Fantastic artwork and story, I'd love to see this become a series or a movie trilogy or something. I agree wholeheartedly that B5 should not be rebooted. At the most just a graphic enhancement to bring the graphics up to what the LOst Tales had for the ships and station etc, but no way a reboot, those actors suited the characters perfectly. 

I would also love to see a Dilgar war movie.

Absolutely superb! I'm all for NEW B5 galaxy/lore material. What I don't want is a remake or another B5 station, they are done. I would welcome an all new story in a new era and with a new name. The only old things I'd keep are the races, some of the ships and the music(orig series not crusade^^) Maybe a series/film around 3rd space, gallery aliens, Dilgar, prequels based on the Firstones :)
