Book Description

May 27 1998 Babylon 5 (Paperback Ballantine) (Book 11)
The last true hope for freedom, Babylon 5 is struggling to survive. The station has severed its ties with Earth--and has been quarantined in retaliation.

Then, in the depths of hyperspace, a squad of Starfuries makes an astounding discovery that could affect the destiny of the civilized universe. But have the pilots from the embattled space station uncovered the threshold to a new age . . . or a gateway to hell?

As they recover a gargantuan alien artifact floating derelict in space, both Captain Sheridan and archaeologist Elizabeth Quijana know it is a gold mine of possibilities. But the telepath Lyta is the first to sense the danger, when her mind is assaulted by swift, crippling images of unspeakable terror. And as research teams attempt to penetrate the mysteries of the mammoth machine, Babylon 5 is thrust toward a terrifying confrontation with the monstrous dimension of Thirdspace . . .

Product Description

From the Publisher

Through trial and error (and books I won't name) I learned a hard lesson: don't do books unless the source material is good. Books based on movies and television have to stand on their own, entertain without the benefit of a screen. Exciting characters, action, mystery, political intrigue, technology, race relations, romance--excellent fiction incorporates all of the genres. With Babylon 5, the series had been envisioned as a five-year epic, and that epic sports one helluva backstory. That backstory has held the attention of millions of viewers for five seasons--these are dedicated and constant supporters.

All well and good, but I'd been stung before. Initially, I was skeptical. It wasn't until I visited the Babylon 5 studios, met with series creator J.Michael Straczynski, watched the actors at work, that I saw the creative spirit that drove them. The hours they put in are painful to watch. I'm pretty sure Straczynski doesn't actually sleep--he wrote the lion's share of the episodes, including two that won Hugo Awards.

So I was convinced. Now we've got four million hard-core viewers to convert. At least we know the target audience.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good movie, much better book Sept. 12 2000
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The movie was good, much better than "River of Souls", but the books was incredible. Peter David has a way of writing that is absolutely incredible.

4.0 out of 5 stars A good story despite a mediocre film May 5 1999
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Most of the B5 fans I know were disappointed in the Thirdsapce movie. (It didn't compare well to the incredible effort of In The Beginning.) However, Thirdspace is actually a pretty nice story that comes out much better in the print version.
Things certainly make much more sense, at least.
I do notice a distressing similarity to "The Touch of Your Shadow, the Whisper of Your Name" (novel 5) -- they're by no means the exact same story, but they are similar.

5.0 out of 5 stars It was cool! Feb. 23 1999
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I love Peter David, and I love B5, so the two combined is very cool! If you are picking which B5 books to read, pick this one, In the Begining or To Dream in the City of Sorrows. They are just as good as the show/movies. If you saw the movie of this and liked it, read the book too, it has more than just what was in the movie!

5.0 out of 5 stars Babylon 5 is the best show ever made! Dec 17 1998
By A Customer
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Babylon 5 is the best show ever made! The depth of which J. Michael Straczynski has created is far beyond all other Sci-Fi series or books I have ever heard of. He is Genius.

This novel is a quick mover and the type of novel that you can eat somewith or drink with. The type that you read when you want to have a good time and have fun with it, unlike David's novel, In The Being that was more serious and emtioal. In this one, you don't after reading ready emtional drain and a little born. In this one you have fun readying it and you want to read more and more of it until you are tried or it is over with. It like a saturday maintie movie, with no real message from it, it just there to make you[The Reader] have fun.
