I'm a huge fan of B5 but I don't think any other stories beyond the B5 story really work. It's not like Star Trek.

Don't it make your dick bust concrete to be in the same room with two noble, selfless public servants.

Rebooting B5 would be dumb, but the setting has plenty of room for another series in it.

It'd be good to pair Ron Moore with someone to do a good depiction of The Dilgar War.

O my God, please please let this happen. I have goose bumps just thinking about it. And my eyes are beginning to tear up.

It's literally never going to happen unless Straczynski surrenders the IP rights. For many projects, new scans are not in the cards financially, or are only profitable if a company acquires all rights. Television shows only compound your costs, since the consumer isn't paying the same per hour for TV as they would for a film project.

And even when a company has all rights, sometimes there still isn't enough revenue to make the financials work. Look at all the classic TV shows that CBS started scanning in HD, but did not finish.

It's definitely cheaper than, say, the TNG in HD project, but that doesn't mean it's cheap.
