SciFi Haiku: Babylon 5

I’ve looked around for ideas to get my creative juices flowing and came across the “Genre Haiku Challenge” at Rob’s Surf Report. His first challenge was for Science Fiction based haiku, and while I missed the challenge deadline (it only ran for a few days) I decided to give it a shot.

From a dead planet.
A whisper “what do you want?”
The shadows spreading.

The final entries of the first challenge can be found here.

Rob’s December challenge is for Epic Fantasy, I think I will give it a try but my Epic Fantasy experience is mostly limited to Tolkien’s works.

Want to try your hand at it? Let me know if you do!


Jeff Conaway ’50 – ‘011

Today is a sad day in the Babylon 5 fandom as another cast-member passes beyond the rim. Actor Jeff Conaway died today.

Well known among fans as Babylon 5 Security Officer/Security Chief Zack Allan, Conaway was also known for his roles in Grease and the sitcom Taxi.

Conaway had a long and diverse career. He will be missed.
