I'm not much of a fan of stand-alone episodes, but since JMS says he's
only writing 50% of the show, it looks like Crusade will have LOTS of
self-contained stories...

That said, I'd like to see more from the writers of season 1:
Larry DiTillio
D. C. Fontana
David Gerrold
Mark Scott Zicree
Kathryn Drennan (JMS' wife I believe?)
Christy Marx
Scott Frost
Peter David

Also, I'd like to see Harlan Ellison produce something.  C'mon Harlan,
you've been on this show for 5 years! and all you've given us was an
idea ("View from the Gallery") or two.  You did better than that for
Star Trek! ("City on the Edge of Forever")

In general, I hope that JMS gives an opportunity to the writers of books
to shine in TV.  If he does, Crusade may be the best science fiction
drama series ever produced.

Peter David has done a script for Crusade this season, Larry DiTillio is
currently working on one, as is Richard Mueller, in addition to a couple of
scripts by Fiona Avery.
