Trivia

Thirdspace was the first of the TNT movies filmed, but the second one aired, in July 1998. As it was actually filmed in late 1997, Claudia Christian was still part of the Babylon 5 cast at the time. When it was finally aired, Claudia had been replaced in the recurring cast by Tracy Scoggins in the part of Babylon 5 Commander under Sheridan. 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 »

Thirdspace good but is out of context
11 October 1998 | by J.F.BrownSee all my reviews

Well, humm. Let's see. Odd plot, long dialogue, and an odd context that doesn't fit into B5 at all certainly take their toll on this movie. I must admit though, the suspense, action, and great special effects for a T.V. movie make this reasonably good. Strong performances from all the actors certainly helped make this movie better than most, but it was still sadly dull.
