Where to write to show support for Babylon 5

Since syndicated shows are purchased by individual stations, the most important place to write to show your support for B5 is your local TV station. See also the B5 Support Page for information about any ongoing letter-writing campaigns.

To reach Warner Bros., which distributes the show, write to either or both of:

Dick Robertson
Domestic Television Distribution
Warner Bros. Television
4000 Warner Boulevard
Burbank, CA 91522

Robert Daly, Chairman
Warner Brothers, Inc.
4000 Warner Boulevard
Burbank, CA 91522

But remember, Warner Bros. already wants B5 to succeed. It's the local stations that determine whether the show will be made -- if enough of them sign up to buy it, it'll continue to be produced, and if they don't, it won't, no matter how many letters Warner Bros. gets from fans. So please write your local station first if you want to support B5.

To reach JMS or other members of the cast and crew, write to:

J. Michael Straczynski
14431 Ventura Blvd., Suite 260
Sherman Oaks, CA 91423-2606

The "c/o Babylon 5" is very important -- your letter may be discarded in the mailroom if that's not there.

JMS is also reachable online at straczynski@genie.geis.com. Please check the Guide before asking about a particular episode; your question may already be answered. JMS gets a lot of mail, so don't expect a personal reply. Also, if you have a question of general interest, please post it to rec.arts.sf.tv.babylon5 instead of mailing it to JMS; that way everyone can benefit from the answer.

How do I submit a script?

All current stories are developed by JMS, because only he knows where the overall story is going. JMS is looking at spec scripts, selecting writers based on their talent and understanding of the Babylon 5 universe, then giving out assigned stories. Babylon 5 is not accepting outside stories. Scripts not submitted through an agent will be returned unopened, as is standard practice.

What effect have fans had?

The location of Babylon 5 is at Grid Epsilon 470,18,22 which corresponds to the original location of the Babylon 5 topic on GEnie (Page 470, CAT 18, Topic 22). The first mention of a planet's coordinates in "Mind War" were Grid Epsilon 471,18,25 which corresponds to a topic in the Babylon 5 Category on GEnie.

Partially due to fan response from those who saw the pilot movie or clips, some things in the pilot movie were changed before broadcast, and the series has been affected as well:
