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

Jeff Conaway's death pneumonia as a result of a drug overdose was all the more ironic, given that his character, Zack Allen, was given a second chance in the series after overcoming a drug addiction. In fact, drug and alcohol addiction proved to be a major theme for several characters, such as Dr. Franklin, Michael Garibaldi, Captain Lochley, and others. After Conaway's death, several of his Babylon 5 co-stars, including Bruce Boxleitner, stated that despite his struggles with addiction, Conaway was the consummate professional, always arriving on-set on-time and prepared, and that the only state they ever saw him in was sober.

In the final episode, "Sleeping in Light", there were no opening credits, just the name of the episode. The closing credits, in addition to having the normal closing credits, had the opening credits placed there as well as pictures and titles of every crew member flashed at a few frames per second (listed below): And now, for those of you that have been archiving this ISN Special Documentary, the people responsible.....

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.
