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.
Intention:
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:
Originally, films 11 and 12 were one single, super-sized film that was just shy of three hours long. When watched that way, it felt like two stories with a natural end point right in the middle of the film so I decided to break them up. So instead of one long film, there are now two shorter movies.

B5 Project 11 covers "Walkabout", "Grey 17 is Missing", and "And the Rock Cried Out, No Hiding Place". Franklin's storyline with Cailyn James in Walkabout was removed... same with the Grey 17's storyline which is considered one of the worst. In effect, I took the A story from Walkabout and inserted the B-story from Grey 17. The third episode had very little done to it other than a few trims here and there.

I had forgotten how much I liked these episodes, especially the gospel hymn over the scene with Refa. Another great edit of a slow but necessary part of the story arc of the 3rd season. Not the best of these movie edits, but the episodes they are based on are generally not considered the best either, but contain many key moments that the entire course of the 5 season arc pivot on, and this is definitely the best way to see them. Thank you!
