Sevencyclopaedia is a resource to the show by Neil Faulkner.

Print Version

The original, print version was published by Judith Proctor. The zine is A4 size, with 146 pages in a double-column layout totalling 117,000 words. The binding is glue with the spine taped. The black-and white cover is by Gavin Miller.

From a distributor, Knightwriter: "Everything you ever wanted to know about the B7 Universe From AA Security Clearance to ZVP (Zerok Vegetable Processing)! If it was seen on screen then it's in the Sevencyclopaedia. If you've looked for something in the Programme Guide and not found it, the odds are high that you'll find it here."

The zine was still in print in December 2003, but had gone out of print by February 2007.

Online Version

An expanded version of this zine is archived online here (Wayback link) at the site. It contains Neil's original entries, plus additions mainly by Murray Smith. It lacks the original cover but is illustrated by lots of frame grabs, mainly from Lisa's Video Frame Capture Library.

The online version remains widely used by B7 fans and is often recommended. Executrix describes it as an amazing work of fan scholarship.[1] Nicola Mody calls it indispensable.[2]
