A century before Captain Kirk's five-year mission, Jonathan Archer captains the United Earth ship Enterprise during the early years of Starfleet, leading up to the Earth-Romulan War and the formation of the Federation.
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

The closing credits for the final episode, "Sleeping In the Light", include shots of all the major characters as they are when the episode took place (20 years after the events of the series), whether or not they are present in the episode. Ranger Marcus Cole, who sacrificed his life to save Ivanova, is represented by the control and information panel on a "coldsleep" hibernaculum -- presumably where his body is being kept until he can be revived.

One of the few examples of what television CAN be.
While I could offer many accolades for this series, I will reduce it to the statement that we have never seen better or more intelligent writing on television. Period.
I'm lost lost in blind fandom. Rather, I've come to loathe the lack of intelligence used in most television programs today (largely because of the networks' catering to the lowest common denominator). This is one of the few exceptions.
It is a true shame we cannot see intelligent writing like this elsewhere in this age of miraculous special effects.
