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

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 »
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.
