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

Robert Foxworth, who played General Hague during Season 2, was supposed to return for "Babylon 5: Severed Dreams (#3.10)" (1996). However he got booked on an episode of Star Trek: Deep Space Nine (1993) that same week. So they re-wrote the script, killed off his character and brought in Bruce McGill as his aide, Major Ryan. Oddly enough, Foxworth's Deep Space Nine character attempted a coup on Earth, whereas his Babylon 5 character was a loyalist fighting against a coup on Earth. Also, in a Stargate SG-1 (1997) episode, Foxworth's character was nearly the victim of a coup on his home world, and in an Star Trek: Enterprise (2001) episode, he attempted yet another coup on the planet Vulcan.

It's a shame I couldn't get this one from the begginig. This is THE Sci-Fi show (if you don't count The X Files as Sci-Fi). It is way better than Star Trek: it didn't have the technological chit chat; human race was weak and corrompted, yet optimistic and full of potential; realistic to the bone, in 200 and so years that could be our world; an evolving story and characters that made you believe they were real; not as many races as in ST (actually it is better this way) but that differenced each other in something else than the ears; a philosophical, political, chaotic universe. Great acting and writing, many but many characters that carried on a story that was about nothing else than life and death.
