I believe that the license for TNT to run B5 runs through late 2001, so it
would be available thereafter.

My feeling is that if it hasn't happened by now, it's probably not going to.
The efforts made by the fans have been terrific, and appreciated, and valued by
all involved...but if it were to happen, it would have had to have happened by
now, I think. Mind, I could be wrong, odder things have happened, but that's
how it looks to me at this point.
