EPISODE 108 – Day of the Dead

On the evening of a Brakiri comet, a section of the station becomes the otherworldly stage for communion with the souls now lost to Mollari, Lennier, Lochley, and Garibaldi. Meanwhile, Sheridan and Delenn host intergalactic comedians Reebo and Zooty (played by the inimitable Penn and Teller). Join us for one of the best episodes of the series, penned by none other than the legendary Neil Gaiman! May the Comet bring you wisdom, this week on Jumpgate!

EPISODE 107 – Secrets of the Soul

More telepaths, more problems, this time with a talented telekinetic, whose arrival (and the consequent chaos in Downbelow) throws Bryon squarely into Zach’s sites. As the attrition between the telepath colony and their aggressors mounts, Byron is desperate to quell the violence. But the secrets hidden deep within Lyta’s Vorlon-enhanced brain might destroy his pacifism forever. Meanwhile, Franklin discovers yet another species’ genocide, this time in the history of the Hyak, and a genetic secret that could doom them all. We’re topless (from the back), this week on Jumpgate!

EPISODE 106 – Strange Relations

Bester returns to B5 under the offical sanction of Earthforce to bring in Byron and his followers, which forces Lyta to choose sides, and sets Garibaldi and Lochley at even greater odds. Londo once again dodges an attempt on his life, and G’Kar is assigned to be his offical ISA bodyguard at the Centaurm, much to the delight of Delenn and G’kar. But what’s really important is Byron’s sense of decor… part vampire, part poet, aaalllll Byron. Will Lyta fall under the spell of his poetry? Will Londo get the aisle seat? Will we FINALLY find out what is up between Sheridan and Lochley? Find out this week on Jumpgate!

WE HAVE A NEW DIGRESSION up on PATREON!  — As promised, our first prospective episode of FIX THE SCRIPT, BABY!  We strip down the 1998 feature film reboot of Lost in Space! Drop a few Centauri Ducats in our online hat, and you too can listen to Andy, Jinny, and The Nick clean out the engine and add some after-market plot enhancers!

EPISODE 105 – Learning Curve

In the company of their instructors, two Rangers-in-Training visit Babylon 5, and quickly become embroiled in a schoolyard smackdown of yet another crime boss who is hilariously unprepared for how badass the Good Guys have become. Meanwhile, Lochley has to deal with a paranoid Garibaldi, a suspicious Delenn, and the legacy of… um… SOMETHING… between her and Sheridan. We have yet to determine something the Pak’Ma’Ra WON’T eat, this week on Jumpgate!

EPISODE 104 – A View From The Gallery

Bo and Mack aren’t your average maintenance techs. For almost 5 years now, they’ve kept B5 spinning, despite periodic plagues, political upheaval, and (ugh!) bugs. They’ve got a lot to say about our heroes, and we’re along for the ride, as they encounter Lochley, Garibaldi, Sheridan and Delenn, all struggling to repel an opportunistic military incursion of an unknown alien race from beyond the Rim. Eh, whatever… just another day on Babylon 5, right? 🙂

Your Hosts LOVE “below-decks” episodes. They usually appear sometime after 3rd or 4th season (or “series” for those across the pond), once the show has hit its stride and the characters are generating fanfic on the forums. These include such notable entries as Buffy the Vampire Slayer  s3e13 “The Zeppo”, featuring non-superpowered sidekick Xander Harris… or the scrappy and resourceful ensigns of ST:TNG s7e15 “Lower Decks”… or even video games like the original Half-Life expansion pack “Opposing Force” or HALO 3: ODST.

All of these stories give a perspective on Our Heroes which might not be attainable otherwise. I mean, after all, who cares about the techs, the janitors, the normal, non-power-armor trooper with nothing between him and the Alien Menace except a pulse rifle and lot of courage? Well, we do. It humanizes a space opera, brings it down to something relatable after three seasons of Next Level bad guys *barely* defeated by the ever more competent (and traumatized) Heroes.

These stories say, yeah, everyone counts. Everyone has something to contribute. But you may be called upon to grow bigger shoulders. 🙂

Listen to the podcast here… do you hear any funny noises? Better call in the maintenance techs.

EPISODE 103 – THE PARAGON OF ANIMALS

Border raids in Drazi space threaten the Enfili, a peaceful race who send a dying ranger to B5 to ask for protection for the new Interstellar Alliance. But forging the alliance was never going to be easy for Sheriden and Delen, not even with the musical words of G’Kar the Warrior Poet. Garibaldi seeks help from Byron and Comapny, eventually sending Lyta to get the job done. Are the Telepaths a cult? Do Drazi actually sweat under pressure? Be quiet, my muse is speaking to me! This week on Jumpgate!

EPISODE 102 – The Very Long Night of Londo Mollari

While sampling some newly-imported Brivari, Londo collapses in a massive hearts-attack. Meanwhile, Lennier decides to tackle his unrequited love for Delenn in the only way he knows how: to risk death and dismemberment in the Rangers. As the cast maintains a death watch over an unstable Mollari in medlab, the Ambassador himself does emotional battle with the righteous forces of his own conscience. Join us as we hear Andy quote Miracle Max – “Hey! What’s so important? What you got here that’s worth living for!?” – This week on Jumpgate!
