Maybe those of us overseas who can't come to the con will see the
deleted parts and the alternate endings on the Season 5 DVD (deleted
scenes that were filmed, or in text if they weren't filmed)?

Of course I don't expect such things to be announced this early,
especially when it could hurt the sales of the signed scripts.

By the way - that (s) added to the alternate ending is probably
peaking everybody's curiosity. How many other possible endings were

I think I need to clarify this lest the wrong idea be communicated....

It's not an alternate ending in terms of, say, showing Delenn skiing at the end
instead of being on the bench...but when the script was written, it kind of
ended three times...the bench scene was one, then there was another small scene
after that, and one more at the end of *that*.  Not big scenes, just little
frissons...one being fairly funny.  It's about 3 pages worth of material, which
would've been about 3-4 minutes of screen time.

Just in the interests of clarity.  Among the deleted material is a very funny
scene with the new commander of B5 when he gets the news about who's about to
come on board,a longer version of the talk between Ivanova and the Ranger who
comes with the news (and a bit of added business at the end of the scene
involving  her aide), that sort of thing.
