   I feel like I should start this off with a whole slew of thank you's
for the last 11 or so years (I discovered B5 part way through the 2nd
season) of simply terrific story-telling but I suspect you don't have
time for that ... plus it would probably get old after the first few
   Anyway, I was driven to make this, the first of my posts to this
board ever, after I visited the babylon5quotes site.  So much quotable
goodness!  Anyway, all of the items look great but when I got down to
the one I was really looking for, the Declaration of Principles,
somehow seeing it print-screened onto a throw pillow or emblazoned on a
refrigerator magnet just didn't do it justice.  Something this profound
deserves a much more worthy medium of display.  I'm not sure what Cafe
Press is capable of producing, but if my dreams were made manifest,
they'd look something like a 9x11 wooden plaque with a brass plate
etched with the Declaration.  Or, if not that, a similar or slightly
larger version on high-quality paper with a lightened graphic of the
station in the background either already framed or suitable for
framing.  Really, I'd be happy with anything befitting it's meaning and
importance ... no offense to pillows and magnets intended.
   OK, that was just my 2 cents. Back to lurkerdom I go.


P.S.  I'm curious if you've seen this site and what you think of it?
        Sorry if this is old news, I just found it the other day.

P.P.S.  Funny story, all these years I thought humans in the B5
universe kept in touch with each other by using a birth # much like we
today use a telephone number.  Why, you ask?  Well, I was reading the
script for 'Parliament of Dreams' yesterday and you can imagine my
surprise and slow-in-coming moment of realization when I read
Catherine's line saying that Sinclair surely knew her "berth" number.
If for no other reason, the book payed for itself right there.

We talked about a parchment or poster sort of thing for the
Declaration, but what I finally came back to was that the site should
only really offer things that folks can't do just as well on their own.
 Anybody with a good color printer could put together a very spiffy
poster, but fewer still can do other objects that don't fit as well
into the printer.  I'm not sure the Press offers plaques, but I'll look
into it.
