Babylon 5 Project XXII: Sleeping in LightFeatured
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.
This is it. The final entry in the Babylon 5 Project... film number 22. Since Sleeping in Light takes a time jump 18 years into the future, I used that as a framing device which bookends the other episodes. The major edit here is cutting out the trip to Minbar so there is no scene with Lennier and no scene with Londo since those are loose threads and I'm trying to keep those to a minimum.
