« Other / Games - Babylon 5 Into the Fire
In 1998, Sierra Software were working on a flight simulator game for Windows based on Babylon 5, called Into the Fire.
Sierra closed down its software development house when the game was not far from completion.
Quite a few playable Alpha versions of the game can be downloaded from various websites.
Christopher Franke; the composer of the music for all 5 seasons of Babylon 5; as well as most of the TV movies, finished a vast number of new themes for the Into the Fire game.
These themes are mostly 30 seconds long and the game engine had a built-in logic would have matched the music being played to the situation and events taking place in the game.
The full soundtrack was released (or more probably leaked) on a CD, containing 5x tracks; each around 11 minutes 20 seconds in length. Apparently only 5 copies of the disc were issued.
These full length versions took quite a bit of tracking down. Only thanks to babylonfan at B5TV.com, did I manage to get a hold of them:
