B5 "The Gathering" props?

So we were watching "The Gathering" for the first time in a long time and I was wondering...does anyone have or did anyone ever make any of the movie props?

The early PPG looked like a Future Trek pistol, and that rifle was just plain odd. I noticed to they had wrist communicators ala ST:TMP instead of the hand link. Heck, even the belt buckles were different. :)

I looked at the rifle once, then decided it was really a very small surf-board.

I know someone else has made one.

One thing really annoyed me about that pilot was ludicrous unnecessary effects - next to the lift were three (at least three) huge lights that flashed in sequence.... why? Why would they do that? So irritating. The control room was also an example of 'over flashing, blinking light' madness.

So glad I saw the pilot well after I'd got into the series.
