Of the remaining nine episodes of the season, three made it to the production script stage but were left [[Undeveloped or Unfilmed episodes|unfilmed]], whilst "Tried and True" and "War Story" had completed writer's draft scripts. "The Walls of Hell" had been partially outlined but not scripted. The remaining three episodes of the intended 22 episode order (Darkness of the Soul, the third part of the 'sword trilogy' and episode 122) were due to be scripted by [[J. Michael Straczynski]] but did not start the scripting phase.
+
A further seven other episodes were assigned, three of which made it to the script stage but were left [[Undeveloped or Unfilmed episodes|unfilmed]], while "Tried and True" and the "Sword trilogy" did not complete the scripting phase, and the remaining two episodes of the intended 22 episode order were left unassigned.

==Broadcast Orders==
According to posts by J Michael Straczynski, which are archived on jmsnews.com, TNT broadcast the episodes out of the intended sequence. The order of the episodes was then revised when they were re-broadcasted on the Sci-Fi channel, the Sci-Fi channel actually contacted Straczynski and asked which order he would prefer the episodes were broadcast. A third order was formally endorsed by Straczynski as the "true" chronological sequence of events for the filmed episode, as it appeared in The Babylon 5 Historical Database, published in [[Across Time and Space: The Chronologies of Babylon 5]]. This particular ordering supersedes Straczynski's own "preferred" sequence from a strictly chronological and causal standpoint. The original broadcast order as set by TNT was used for the DVD releases.
