The battle for Earth concludes as Sheridan leads his forces to Earth to confront Clark's forces in an all out battle. Meanwhile Marcus learns of the alien device Franklin used to heal Garibaldi when ...
In the year 2258, it is ten years after the Earth-Minbari War. Commander Sinclair takes command of a giant five-mile-long cylindrical space station, orbiting a planet in neutral space. At a crossroads of interstellar commerce and diplomacy, Cmdr Sinclair (2d season Captain Sheridan) must try to establish peace and prosperity between various interstellar empires, all the while fighting forces from within the Earth Alliance. It is a precarious command, particularly given that sabotage led to the destruction of Babylon stations 1, 2, and 3 and 4 vanished without trace. Written by

Claudia Christian auditioned for the role of Seven of Nine on Star Trek: Voyager (1995). In fact, several B5 actors also did Trek: Andreas Katsulas was Romulan Commander Tomalak; Bill Mumy was an engineer on Starfleet's AR-558 outpost; and more. Trek co-creator Majel Barrett made an appearance on B5 as the seer who foretells Londo's ascension to the throne. Majel Barrett's character, Lady Morella, was the widow of the recently deceased Emperor Turhan, no doubt an homage to Gene Roddenberry. See more »
Ambassador Londo Mollari:
Vir, stay. If you go, as a matter of honor, I will have to go with you, and if I am forced to leave this place, with all its marvelous opportunities, I will have to kill you... What are friends for?

During the first run of the show, the titles for seasons 2 and 4 changed as character changes took place. In season 2, before Delenn's new makeup was revealed the "old" Delenn was shown; and for the first few episodes, Claudia Christian was identified as "Lt. Commander. Susan Ivanova". After she was promoted this was changed to "Commander Susan Ivanova". In the fourth season, at first Jerry Doyle is identified as "Security Chief Michael Garibaldi" while Jeff Conaway was billed as "Zack Allan". Halfway through the season when Garibaldi resigns and Allan is promoted, the credits change to "Michael Garibaldi" and "Security Chief Zack Allan". However, the DVD/R1 release of Season 2 has all the credits showing the new Delenn and "Lt. Commander Susan Ivanova"; and the Season 4 has all credits showing "Security Chief Michael Garibaldi" and "Zack Allan". See more »
I just finished watched the 1st year on DVD. What a treat to see this series again, in a version mastered properly for the widescreen with surround sound to boot. I remember enough from the series to know that the 1st season was both unique and uneven in more ways than the other 4 years, and yet it lets out all the plot threads that play out over the ensuing years. I, for one, liked M. O'hare and it was too bad he couldn't have had a recurring role in subsequent seasons. Even so, this is a great series, possibly the best ever Sci Fi TV series that I've ever seen. Great CGI work that was employed for the 1st time ever, multiple engaging plots, good acting, writing, etc... it goes on and on. My only regret is that no one's figured out a good way to resurrect the B5 fictional world. I'd love to see another good series like this. If you haven't seen it lately, watch it again to remember how good it was. If you've never seen it then you don't know what you're missing.
