Alas, no.

The reason that WB was able to release B5 wide is that TNT had paid to have
them re-telecine'd to that format.  It would take about two hundred grand to go
through and do that with Crusade...and even though they've now grossed about
half a BILLION dollars on the B5 dvd's to date, they don't seem inclined to
want to spend that.

(Needless to say, my last profit statement showed the show still in the red,
which gets increasingly hysterical as time passes.)
