I would think that a telemovie like "In the Beginning" where we see the Earth/Minbari war would be a good start, ...

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!!!

Don' getta me wrong-o. (Watto talk). I liked the story for FC, and find it enjoyable enough to watch on blu-ray. (But, if you can find a full-frame version of the movie, the action fills the screen better, like a tv episode). It was just a disappointment to me on the big screen. Same with Serenity. Loved the story. Just disappointed by the lack of impact on the big screen. Again, a full frame version of the movie would do it justice on the small screen, but I doubt you're going to find a full frame version, since letterbox (once so heavily reviled by folks who watch their movies on TV/video) is now pretty much the standard (thanks to widescreen HDTV's .... ha haaaaa....victory is mine!)

Aye, perhaps a trilogy, but again, you'd have to hope that the first movie is going to be a box-office success. (Perhaps not a blockbuster, but definitely enough of a success to warrant a second and perhaps third movie.) I think the story I propose could be told in a movie that is just over two hours (perhaps around two hours and twenty minutes, as long as it is not bogged down with too much politicking...that is stuff best kept for television episodes). Keep the story fast and compelling, and I think you could tell what needed to be told and even warrant a sequel with a brand new adventure.
