Trivia

The artifact was designed in cooperation with Wayne Douglas Barlow, author of Barlow's Guide to Extraterrestrials. See more »

Goofs

Even if the carbon ratios from the artifact's origin were known, Carbon-14 dating is only effective for dating things to about 60,000 years. Other radioisotopes would be used to date anything much older, yet Ivanova says that carbon dating determined the object is over a million years old. See more »

Symphonic film
19 October 2006 | by (Switzerland) – See all my reviews

The basic story of "Thirdspace" is rather straight and simple, it could have been told in the time span of a regular B5 episode without being hasty. So, what makes "Thirdspace" interesting to watch, if you like this kind of sci-fi movie, more than the story or the not-too-overwhelming quality of acting, is its strong symphonic side - the synthesis of (CGI) images and Franke's score into a "space symphony" sometimes even resembling "Star Trek: The Motion Picture". It's not as elegant, though. "Thirdspace" is faster and somehow rougher, there is less sheer grandeur (well, it's a TV movie), but still... one can enjoy much of it indeed, literally, as a moving picture with music. What I also would like to mention, though, is Patricia Tallman's performance - distinctly more inspired and refined than what we saw in the preceding B5 episodes.
