Storyline

It's the tenth anniversary of the Interstellar Alliance, and President Sheridan is on his way to Babylon 5 for the celebration. The station's commander, Colonel Elizabeth Lochley, asks a priest to investigate a case of possible demonic possession, while technomage Galen asks Sheridan to assassinate a young Centauri prince destined to destroy Earth one day. Babylon 5: The Lost Tales - Voices in the Dark was conceived as the first film in a character-driven B5 anthology series that never happened. Lochley's segment is titled 'Over Here,' and Sheridan's segment is titled 'Over There.' The two stories take place at the same time but other than that have nothing to do with each other.

Goofs

A SPFX glitch occurs when Father Cassidy arrives on Babylon 5. As he leaves his ship, there is a wide shot of the docking bay. In the far distance, two crewmen can be seen. One of them walks away from the other, then turns back, at which point the first one slowly rises up and then quickly down again. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
G'Kar: [voiceover] I believe that when we leave a place, part of it goes with us, and part of us remains. Go anywhere in the station when it is quiet and just listen. After a while, you will hear the echoes of all our conversations, every thought and word we've exchanged. Long after we have gone, our voices will linger in these walls.
Simon Burke: Get out of my head. No!

Minimalist, but provoking
1 August 2007 | by OzBuckBearSee all my reviews

The new Babylon 5 'movie' was long publicised as separate but related episodes, so I knew what I was getting in for. I had little idea of what to expect of the story lines, and was pleasantly surprised to hear that Straczynski had included his trademark discussion of religious possibilities and ethical dilemmas. His understanding of spiritual matters is incredibly deep for a professed agnostic with atheist tendencies. Moreover, his dissection of moral possibilities leaves one thinking long after viewing. With revised CGI and full use of digital backgrounds, the presentation is generally quite impressive, although it is obviously still a developing area. The script writing, like the sets design, is generally minimalist - partly through cost restriction, but also well placed in the storyline (many scenes put me in mind of Intersections in Real Time). The Lost Tales was not disappointing, and makes for quality viewing. Although more could definitely have been achieved with more budgetary and casting freedom, but Straczynski has made an enjoyable time's viewing. The stories do not contribute largely to the expansion of the B5 universe, but do give tantalising hints of the post-series state of the universe.
