I recently came across a Babylon 5 
hand-held "video game", and I was
wondering if it was a WB-authorized

The "brand name" on it was
Micro Games of America.
It had little copyright notices
at the bottom of the package
"Copyright 1994 Micro Games of America"
"Copyright 1994 PTN Consortium"

And, if it is licensed, no offense intended here,
but whoever made it didn't really research
B5 all that well, considering that the 
"enemy ships" looked like Vorlon ships; they
didn't shoot Ginsu Beams Of Death, they shot
fireballs instead; one single fireball takes out
B5; and the ships don't look anything like Starfurys.
Oh yeah, and for some reason or another, B5 is a
"transport vehicle" delivering ships to a "space station".

Really weird.

Thank you for your time!  :)

I don't know *where* they come from.  Vorlons,

Yes.  AFAIK it's the *first* thing ever liscensed.  It came out before
the show, and I'd love to have one.

Yes, it's licensed, back from the pilot, which exlains why there are
Vorlon ships coming at the station.
