300+ pages of annotated transcripts: For every story recalled on stage, there is a wealth of background facts that clarify and elaborate upon the situation.

Own these historic Babylon 5 reunions...not available anywhere online.

Get every word by turning on the subtitles, then read the book of annotated transcripts for the story behind the story -- references and in-jokes that might fly over the head of even the most devout Babylon 5 fan. The annotations by Jason Davis -- editor of 28 volumes for B5Books.com -- assemble all the facts necessary to fully appreciate the on-stage fun.

Even if you know what caused the jumpgate vortex to glow orange and blue -- in other words you're a huge B5 buff -- you'll still learn new stories during the Reunion About the Reunions interview. (Garibaldi as a Centauri for one episode? It's true.) That's why we refer to this interview as "Revelations."

At B5 Books we've watched these panels repeatedly and notice something new each time.

  • Different cons, different experiences -- brought together in one great set
  • Almost 4 hours of on-stage reunion material
  • 1.5 hours of the Reunion about the Reunions
  • Uncensored (with language in keeping with an R-rated movie)
  • Officially licensed and available only from B5books
  • Available on Blu-ray or DVD
How did Bruce Boxleitner taunt Claudia Christian on the set of Babylon 5? Pat Tallman's reaction is priceless.

QUESTIONS AND ANSWERS ABOUT THE “CAST REUNIONS”

WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN THE CAST REUNIONS (THIS PACKAGE) AND THE FAN EXPERIENCE?
They are 100% different. Not one frame of the Fan Experience is included in this package.

This set is everything related to the Cast Reunion events at the two 20th Anniversary Conventions.

You're getting the Cast Reunion at Phoenix Comicon, the Cast Reunion at Space City Con and our exclusive, feature-length Reunion About the Reunions interview. That's about 5 hours of video footage.

There are other "cast related" bonuses: sneak peeks at the private cast dinner, their reunion photo shoot with fans, behind-the-scenes of the audio commentary recording and more.

Meanwhile, the Fan Experience is like actually being at the 22 topic panels at each of the cons. Because 9 of these panels include cast members, at first glance it's a bit confusing.
http://www.cafepress.com/b5fanexperience

All of the above elements are also transcribed and annotated in the 300+ page book.

WHAT HAPPENS IF I WAIT TO ORDER WHEN THE PRODUCT SHIPS IN AUGUST?
Two things. One, you will pay full retail price ($129) and two, you risk not getting a copy if it sells out. We are only manufacturing 10% more than the reservations we receive, to accommodate fans late to the party, but those will be sold at full price. When we sell-out, we will start a waiting list, and we'll only restock (at full price) once we hit the minimum number of orders required for pressing a new batch of Blu-rays. We had to do it this way to get the price breaks on manufacturing to make the set affordable for everyone.

It bears repeating...the discount of $98 ($31 off of the $129 retail) price only applies to Cast Reunion sets reserved with a deposit.

WHAT'S THE ADVANTAGE OF PLACING A RESERVATION DEPOSIT?
Only fans who place a $49-reservation deposit will get the discount price of $98 ($31 off the full price of $129). All who reserve are (1) guaranteed to receive a copy, and (2) the deposits are 100% refundable if you change your mind.

HOW DO I KNOW THE CAST REUNION DISC+BOOK SET WILL SHIP WHEN YOU SAY IT WILL?
Because the footage and book are ready. The only thing we are waiting for is an accurate count of how many fans want Blu-rays and DVDs so that we know how many of each we need manufactured. We didn't do this with the Fan Experience, and we went out of stock for weeks. In the case of the Blu-ray edition, we must meet a high minimum of orders for a second round of replication, so it's important that we get it right the first time.

WHAT WILL I MISS IF I DON'T RESERVE A SET WITH A DEPOSIT?
You'll play $129 instead of $98. You might have to wait months while our wait list fills up until we're able to re-stock; it happened with the Fan Experience. If you're not sure, cover yourself with a reservation deposit. You can get a 100% refund, no questions asked anytime. Just email us at help@b5books.com

WHAT HAPPENS FROM THE TIME I PLACE MY RESERVATION DEPOSIT?

  • You place your 100% refundable reservation deposit of $49
  • $49 will be deducted from your PayPal account, or charged to your credit card
  • You get a receipt from Paypal
  • You get an order confirmation from B5 Books
  • You will get two status updates during the 60 days between your deposit and purchase-to-ship date
  • In August, you will get an email with a special link to CafePress for ordering the product for the remaining $49 plus shipping ($49 deposit + $49 = $98 plus shipping)
  • CafePress sends you an email with tracking information when your Cast Reunions ships
  • You will receive your order and spend the weekend with the cast of Babylon 5

WHY ARE YOU REQUIRING A DEPOSIT TO RESERVE A SET?
We've never offered the option of Blu-ray or DVD and need to know quantities. We woefully underestimated what we needed for the Fan Experience, and that was only DVDs. We ran out of stock during the debut discount, and don't want to risk the same thing happening again since there's a 60-day lead time required for Blu-ray manufacturing.

CAN I PAY BOTH PAYMENTS ALL AT ONCE?
Like all our other releases, CafePress will be handling this product. They don't have a way to process reservations because the product doesn't yet exist in their system.

We've also discovered that the CafePress system doesn't have a way to import payments from Paypal. That's why we came up with the split option: Reserve your set with a $49 deposit, and pay the remaining $49+shipping when the set is released in Aug

We will send you a special CafePress link to complete your purchase with the remaining $49+shipping. Our fan feedback indicated that folks liked the option of an initial $49 deposit followed 60 days later by a final payment of $49 + shipping.

I HATE PAYPAL. DO YOU HAVE ANY OTHER PAYMENT OPTIONS?
Yes. We can take your credit card information over the phone. We'll be happy to call you, just email us your phone number.

WHAT IF I CHANGE MY MIND?
We will refund 100% of your deposit; no questions asked. Email Lt. Brandon at help@b5books.com.

HOW MANY COPIES CAN I ORDER AT THE $98 RESERVED WITH DEPOSIT PRICE?
Only two. We're concerned about folks selling them at hugely inflated prices on eBay after we run out.

WHAT IS THE END OF THE RESERVATION PERIOD?
Tuesday, June 30 2015 at 11:59 Pacific. This is a revised end date (fans wanted another paycheck to purchase). June 30 is a concrete end date and will not change for any reason nor will it impact the August release date.

I'M GOING TO BE ON VACATION IN AUGUST. WHAT HAPPENS IF THE LINK IS SENT WHILE I'M OUT OF TOWN?
We've got you covered. You have a minimum of 45 days to redeem your link to purchase the set for the remaining $49+shipping. If you are traveling for an extended period, just email us and we will hold your copy until you get back. Guaranteed.

HOW LONG DO I HAVE TO GET IT AFTER I GET THE NOTICE?
You'll have 45 days minimum.

WHAT SPLIT PAYMENT PLANS DO YOU OFFER FOR THE $49 RESERVATION DEPOSIT?
You can split the initial $49 deposit into two payments ($25 first payment and $24 second payment). No credit checks. No interest. No surcharges. To get the 2-pay option for the $49 reservation deposit, email Lt. Brandon at help@b5books.com.

CRITICAL NOTE ABOUT THE BLU-RAY
All the footage is 1080 high definition EXCEPT for the Phoenix Comicon reunion. Yeah. We had the same reaction. There is no authorized high-definition footage from the event; anyone claiming otherwise is either unauthorized or upscaling standard-definition video. Upon licensing the footage, the B5 Books team discovered that the event organizers only had standard-definition video instead of high-definition footage.

WHY PUT THE STANDARD DEFINITION EVENT ON BLU-RAY?
Presenting the Phoenix Comicon cast reunion on Blu-ray allowed us to use minimal compression, assuring the best possible standard-definition video presentation, and a step-up from standard defintion on a DVD.

Like the Babylon 5 series it celebrates, the Phoenix Comicon cast reunion was locked in standard definition by technical limitations, but all the other footage is high definition.

WHY IS THE DVD THE SAME PRICE AS THE BLU-RAY?
It turns out that small orders of DVDs are close to the same price as large runs of Blu-rays. Apparently there just isn't the demand for DVDs anymore. That, and the extra disc for all the footage, leveled the cost. That surprised us too.

WHAT'S THE ADVANTAGE OF AUTHORIZED AND LICENSED MATERIAL?
It means that you are getting the highest quality exclusive footage, and that we own the rights to reproduce this material. It won't disappear from YouTube, you won't have to watch shakey, pixelated video, disabling pop-up ads as you go. This is as close to being there live as you can get.

WHICH BABYLON 5 STARS WERE AT WHICH REUNIONS?
Bruce Boxleitner appears at Space City, but did not make it to Phoenix Comicon while Jerry Doyle and J. Michael Straczynski attended Phoenix Comicon but could not be at Space City. To make up for that, Jerry Doyle (with Claudia Christian and Patricia Tallman) provide audio commentary for the Space City cast reunion.

ATTENTION INTERNATIONAL CUSTOMERS!
Both the Blu-ray and DVD editions are region free. Note that the DVDs are NTSC. We ship worldwide.

HOW MUCH WILL SHIPPING COST?
Shipping within the contintental US is $7.49. UK $9; Canada $15; Australia $15; Spain $11; France $11; Germany $9; Italy $11; Japan $11

ARE THE BLU-RAYS DUPLICATED OR REPLICATED?
They are replicated (!) using molded discs and a glass master and the fully licensed Blu-ray process. The disc "labels" are silk-screened directly onto the discs.

HOW ARE YOU PACKING THIS COLLECTION FOR SHIPPING?
In heavy-weight cardboard boxes. Remember: we guarantee a perfect product, or we will reship 100% at our expense -- including the return, via pre-paid slip -- anywhere in the world. Just email Lt. Brandon at help@b5books.com and it's handled.

WHAT HAPPENS IF A DISC FALLS OFF ITS SPINDLE DURING SHIPPING AND GETS SCRATCHED?
We will replace a defective disc immediately, completely at our expense (anywhere in the world), and you will NOT have to return the defective disc. We used this packaging with the Fan Experience and had a 0.02% failure rate. Just email Lt. Brandon at help@b5books.com.

IS IT TRUE THAT BRUCE BOXLEITNER WAS SUPPOSED TO BE AT THE REUNION ABOUT THE REUNIONS?
Yes. He had to cancel the day before we recorded because he couldn't get back from Vancouver, where his current television series is produced; this is the same problem that caused him to miss the Phoenix Comicon.

WHAT IF I DON'T LIKE IT?
If for any reason you're dissatisfied, you get back 100% of what you paid for the collection -- including shipping costs, even for international orders. We also pay return shipping fees as well. Just email us at help@b5books.com with your order number.

HOW CAN YOU HAVE SUCH CUSTOMER-FRIENDLY POLICIES?
Simple. We have a near-zero return rate because fans love our products. We also use high-quality shipping supplies so your order arrives in perfect condition. Issues are rare. That said, remember this: we work for Babylon 5 creator J. Michael Stracyznski, and we stand for everything he represents.

OK THEN...WHAT'S THE STATUS WITH THE JMS CRUSADE BOOKS?
JMS recently requested the archived documentation to finish the CRUSADE WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED? series. He's currently promoting his new show SENSE8 on Netflix worldwide. We expect more information after he's finished his promo tour.
