Think of the history of Star Trek. It was cancelled *twice* because of poor ratings. Then, after going into reruns it found its audience and became a huge franchise.

We don't necessarily want a huge franchise but I don't think we want Babylon 5 to just be relegated to bad punchlines, either.

But I see this as having a few fronts if it's to be successful.

First front: Warner Bros. Let them know that we want to see it on TV and streaming

Second Front: TV and Streaming - let them know that we want them to feature Babylon 5

Third Front: Make it an *ongoing* campaign. Yeah, they might notice a big bunch of emails and posts and hashtags in the short term but we need to keep letting them know.
