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

According to the DVD commentary, if filming ran past 5pm on Mondays during football season, the cast and crew would subtly hint that filming should wrap soon by humming the theme from NFL Monday Night Football (1970) whenever the director walked onto the set. See more »
Captain John Sheridan:
Our new friend just said all the security in the world can't stop a lone gunman dedicated to exchange his life for the target, and he is right. So you may as well live instead of being a prisoner.

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 »
Babylon 5 is one of the TV shows we all wish we had come across sooner. as a massive star trek fan i saw the first few episodes of b5 in its initial run and immediately thought it was below par. at the urging of a friend i came back to it a few years later.... wow! to say i was impressed was an understatement, i immediately began to re-watch the whole series and saw he genius of the story arc and character development. in addition to this the use of aliens that looks alien, use different gasses to breath, are more advanced technologically and (shock) actually speak a language other than English was a joy! the battle scenes were wonderful, well beyond anything i had seen before and as for londo and g'kar, if there are 2 finer characters in all of television then that TV show is doing well. funny, awe inspiring, intelligent and emotional b5 has it all, the only drawback being that sometimes the walls are a little flimsy, sometimes the effects are a little below par, but willing suspension of disbelief is necessary in sci-fi, and b5 is no exception. is b5 a work of genius? definitely, without question yes, but could parts of it be better? those niggly little things that gnaw at us i'm afraid would have brought b5 up a notch, but it remains , without question, one of the finest shows, not just sci-fi, but shows that i have ever seen!
