I would think that a telemovie like "In the Beginning" where we see the Earth/Minbari war would be a good start, ...
You're talking my kinda language Martok.

telling of "In the Beginning" and be its own movie, or have it be, perhaps, the first ten minutes of the movie, told in a quick historical perspective. Then, we get a quick rundown of how Babylon's 1-3 were built, and quickly destroyed before going operational. You could have Babylon 4 come on line, and then, as in the series mythos, 24 hours later, it disappears. Now, granted, I know a story was done on this in the show, but perhaps they could redux it, give it a different angle, and then that's where the more successfully operational B5 and her crew come into play.
Good thoughts, don't know how much of that you could squeeze into a movie, wait a minute...a TRILOGY!!!!!!!!!

Maybe B5 is long ago enough to keep all the elements the same, as long as they don't make Mollari a woman!!!
