T'was neither unnamed nor undecided. It was to be "set strongly on the 
B5 station itself", to quote JMS verbatim. It hasn't been mentioned 
since, true... but we're still waiting for the *second* book. These 
will be the seventh, eighth and ninth, and there's no point in 
mentioning them when there's such a long wait in store for us. More 
will probably come soon.

The third trilogy (actually the second to go into the works) is a Technomage
trilogy, with Jeanne Cavelos writing.

Peter David is doing the Centauri trilogy.
