    Because of the epic five season video novel format, ad libs were forbidden on set. Any script changes had to be approved by series creator J. Michael Straczynski. (Occasionally, ad-libs slipped through. In "Babylon Squared", a flash-forward in time shows Garibaldi leading security forces in defense against an attack on the station. As he fires his weapon, he shouts at the enemy, in a manner reminiscent of Hudson from Aliens: "Come on! Take some! How about you? How about YOU?! Come on, take some, take some, TAKE SOME!" When asked on rec.arts.sf.tv.babylon5 how it was that Garibaldi knew where to shoot when other scenes indicated that the attackers were invisible, JMS explained that Jerry Doyle ad-libbed the dialogue. There had been none written for that scene, and Doyle felt that an emotion charged battle like this would not have been fought in silence. JMS in fact agreed with Doyle, but circumstances prevented his being present at the filming. He said that had he been there, he would have written some lines for Garibaldi - and that they would have sounded less like Hudson.)

    Because of the televised "novel" format developed by J. Michael Straczynski and to account for any unforeseen changes during series production (i.e. cast changes, budget cuts, etc.) each major character and storyline had a "trapdoor" designed into it. Thus, if a change had to be made to the show, Straczynski could integrate it without changing the major plot of the series.
