I think this is fair use.

There is an overview in this volume of "Fantasy and Horro in the Media"
for 1996.  Written by Ed Bryant, it includes this comment:

"Unlike the various series of the Star Trek universe, Straczynski's show
suggest and reflects the reality that what's going on at the front of
the CRT stage is an integral component, but certainly not the entire
reality, of what's happening politically and culturally in the rest of
the galaxy."

Later on, he also says that "You are allowed to enjoy both the
Roddenberry and Straczynski universes if you so choose."

Just wondered if you'd seen this and thought it captured B5 fairly well.

No, I hadn't seen that comment...thanks for alerting me.

Ed's a good guy.
