As ever, B5 continues to do R&D for other venues. Happy to be of
service.

This kind of ties into what I said about wanting to make these scripts
available at the lowest possible cost. At cons, you have to pay about
$20 for each individual script, the ones you note are $25...with the B5
script books you get 7 scripts plus the original introduction and other
extras for $30-$40 depending on when you buy it, so you're looking at
potentially $6 bucks per script, give or take.

We could easily have charged the going rates per script, but I really
wanted to put these into the hands of the most people as possible, at
the smallest return, as long as it got the job done. So I'm happy that
we are able to do that.

Hell, no. That would defeat the point of item 2 noted above.
