A site dedicated to television and film



It was the dawn of the third age of mankind, ten years after the Earth/Minbari war. The Babylon Project was a dream given form. Its goal, to prevent another war by creating a place where humans and aliens could work out their differences peacefully. It's a port of call - home away from home for diplomats, hustlers, entrepreneurs, and wanderers. Humans and aliens wrapped in two million, five hundred thousand tons of spinning metal, all alone in the night. It can be a dangerous place, but it's our last best hope for peace. This is the story of the last of the Babylon stations. The year is 2258. The name of the place is Babylon 5. - Commander Sinclair

And so it began, the introduction that would take us through five years of war, betrayal, hope and hardship. Babylon 5, was for me, a show that was desperately needed. After ST: Next Generation went off the air, I had started to slip away from sci-fi. I began watching less and less of ST: DS9 and barely noticing the first three years of ST: Voyager. B5 introduced reality into to sci-fi. Where Star Trek sought a visonistic view of how the Earth would 'carry' itself in the future, B5 was more realistic. Some of the same biases and hatreds the we 'humans' contain within us weren't just whipped away with the invention of a warp drive. B5 was the most realistic view of the future.

And it wasn't just the story line that drew me in, but the characters, the characters who became people. Following the life of the likes of Ivanova and Garibaldi, real people with real lives and all the darkness and despair, and hope, that goes along with it. I think it was the characters, and the actors who portrayed them, that really kept the show going. Thankfully, JMS was able to see his five year 'vision' through to it's fruition. I look forward to his next creation, Crusade - when they decide to show the damn thing!
