I was one of those that taped B5 on VHS and would watch the episodes over and over, I would buy any magazine that had any articles about the show and knew each episode name by heart in order (no longer the case). Even after the show was done and into the 2000s I was collecting Trading Cards and remember paying $100 for a rare signed JMS special card that only dealers got cause you had to buy a case to get it. I read the novels.
I went to conventions, one of the best was an intimate one which only had like 30 people in a conference suite with Patricia Tallman. She did a signing afterwards and I gave her 4 "Lyta" cards to sign from my collection and I will never forget she picked them up looked at them and then gave me that look that said "You are one of those guys that will live in his mothers basement, be a virgin forever, and rant about you love of Star Trek on message boards."
Ah those were the days.
I remember hounding C4 asking when they would air season 4. I had seen most of the first half of the season anyway as we used to get tapes sent from friends in the USA and when we showed them at Trek conventions the room was always packed. I also remember it was a bit of a thrill that we got the final episodes of season 3 before the USA. On the trading cards I was once lucky enough to get a Mira Furlan signed Delen card which I sold for £300. I couldn’t name all the episodes by heart in order, only for seasons 2-4. However for some strange reason I can still do it for all episodes of TNG.
