This is a purely linear claim which avoids the nonlinearities of "Boom". In the Babylon 5 episode _Signs and Portents_ , Lady Ladira, a Centauri seer and prophetess, shows Commander Sinclair the possible destruction of Babylon 5. This claim will pay based on the episode as listed in The Lurker's Guide to Babylon 5's Episode Guide. Babylon 5 is scheduled to run for 5 seasons with 22 episodes per season. If Babylon 5 is destroyed during or before episode 60, the claim will pay $0. If Babylon 5 survives the entire series, the claim will pay a full $1. Otherwise, if Babylon 5 is destroyed during episode x, the claim will pay $0.02 * (x-61) If the fate of Babylon 5 is unknown, the claim will pay a full $1 at the end of the series. Nitpicks: If the 110th episode does not air because the show was been cancelled, the claim will be judged as if B5 was destroyed in the episode following the last episode to air. If the number of episodes per season changes, the wording of this claim may be adjusted to keep expected value vs time linear.
On 1998-11-25, the airing date of the last episode(#110), it became clear that B5 was destroyed - as promised in episode #88 (1997-10-27). Therefore the final claim value is 0.98 FX$.
