October: the broadcast of the series has started
Fan-club www.b5.ru was founded a couple of months later; all fanfiction, essays, and parodies have been archived there since then.
After having broadcast nearly 3 seasons, the TV-company "TV6"
decided to stop the translation due to the alleged absence of audience interest.
The fen organized mass campaigns (the first such action in Russia), wrote letters and e-mails, and even participated in TV-programs dedicated to the crisis. As a result, the whole show was repeated after a year of struggle – from the beginning till the final season.
The fan-club site organized various challenges; a joint translation of "ADDM" was undertaken.
First convention in Moscow.
The fan-club site is still active; but the general interest
is in decline; fanfics are rather rare, mostly fanart is produced.
