Brief Synopsis:
The Babylon 5 Project aims to focus on the arc stories of the TV show by creating a series of films. This creates a more streamlined rewatch of Babylon 5 for those who want to maximize the arc without having to watch the mostly stand-alone episodes with arc storylines in them.
Babylon 5 has such a riveting arc based story that I've returned to watch time and time again but I'm not a big fan of the standalone episodes. However, many standalones do have some arc based storylines which are paid off later. I wanted to craft a new way to watch the series which creates an "all killer, no filler" B5 experience. Some films would just be three or so episodes strung together because of how heavily arc concentrated they are. Other films need to be built from the ground up from the pieces of many episodes which creates new viewing experiences and slightly changed narratives. The Babylon 5 Project also looks to exorcise some loose plot threads that don't pay off down the line.

Editing Details:
The bulk of what was removed from season 4 happens in this movie. It covers 5 episodes and chronicles the moments between wars. Here's what was done to each episode:

"Epiphanies": Very little was cut out and only minor trims were made.

"The Illusion of Truth": This episode has been truncated considerably so we speed through the news segment.

"Atonement": Delenn's storyline was completely removed. It's a big character reveal but has zero impact on the story arc for the series when you remove it.

"Racing Mars" and "Lines of Communication": These two episodes along with "Epiphanies" make up the bulk of this film. Only minor trims were made to the stories.
