About Sinclair and Delenn, yes, they were supposed to get involved. They already had a Minbari bonding ceremony in year 1! Also while I too believe the best ending would have been to have Sinclair go back in time and become Valen at the end of the show, the original storyline didn't work out this way. So I can imagine that JMS will try to rewrite everything as if the actor and studio changes did not happen, but I still don't like it, because he has shown with Crusade, that he didn't understand that the success of B5 was not only due to his writing, but also due to the fantastic CGI ships and music. I hope he understands now otherwise the reboot will be screwed!

Yes the leads were memorable, but it was all the excellent side characters and story arcs that made this show great like: Mollari, G'kar, Inavova, Garibalid, Vir, Na'Toth, Marcus, Lennier, Bester, and even Lyta.
Regardless of how it relates to the original cannon, with JMS, I expect the new one to also be populated with lots or interesting and engaging side characters and stories.

I suppose. I still liked both Boxleitner and Scoggins.
Where did you get this information about what the original story/intention was? Not that I am particularly doubting you, just wondering if there is some good reading to be had. Also, do you know if Sinclair was supposed to get involved with Delenn as Sheridan did?

When I read this headline on another site I almost decided to overdose on ivermectin and hydroxychloroquine and hot baths and end it all, but then I thought about it. JMS is anal about B5, he isn't agreeing to make anything unless he has very favorable terms and can basically make what he wants. He's making it, running it, and writing it, so if anything gets fucked up its on him. Possible, but as much as B5 is his baby, I don't see it.
