Lost Tales Becomes Last Tales

While not sounding the demise of Babylon 5, the show creator, J. Michael Stracynski had this to say:

B5 as a five year story stands beautifully on its own. If anything else is to be continued from that story, it should be something that adds to the legacy of B5, rather than subtracts from it.

As well intentioned as [TV movie Legend of the] Rangers and TLT were, as enticing as it was to return to those familiar waters, in the end I think they did more to subtract from the legacy than add to it. I don't regret having made them, because I needed to go through that to get to the point where I am now psychologically, but from where I sit now, I wouldn't make them again.

I could really see the scotch tape in the Lost Tales, but I loved the anthology just the same
