Several years after the end of the Great War (detailed in the main Babylon 5 TV series) the former servants of the now-exiled Shadows attempt to avenge their old masters by introducing a powerful biological weapon into Earth's atmosphere. After five years of adapting itself to humanity's genetic makeup, it will kill every human being on the planet. Since this plague was the product of a technology far ahead of humanity's, there isn't enough time to develop an original solution - instead, humanity will have to comb through the ruins of older alien civilizations with the hope of finding some ancient, advanced technology that can cure the disease. Leading this high-stakes archeological mission is a starship of the new Interstellar Alliance, the Excalibur, and its crew drawn from the Alliance's elite troubleshooting corps, the Rangers.

Did You Know?


Fiona Avery had completed the script for episode 16 before the series was cancelled. The episode, titled "Value Judgements", would have seen the Excalibur crew encounter fugitive telepath Alfred Bester (Walter Koenig, reprising his role from Babylon 5 (1994)). Koenig had already signed on to appear - and was reportedly very enthusiastic about the script - when the series was cancelled. See more »


Galen: Do you think I'm hiding things from you, Dureena?
Dureena Nafeel: Gideon says we all have things to hide.
Galen: Did he? How unfortunate. I was hoping he'd come further than that. Not that isn't true of course. It's just that one simply doesn't have to say it... Matthew was right. We all have something to hide. We all have something to tell, we all have a secret name, we all have a question.
Galen: One question that unlocks our hearts.
Dureena Nafeel: And what is your question, Galen?
Galen: [pause] Why.

Better than they say!
19 October 1999 | by (Bamberg, Germany) – See all my reviews

After some slow and rather uneventful episodes, this show later showed some promise and developed into an interesting Science Fiction series.

Of course, it is lacking the sophisticated story arc of Babylon 5, but many episodes are fun! It is nice to watch them and you want to know what happens next. In my eyes, it is Star trek Voyager done better.

The characters are of different quality: The Captain with his mysterious Boom Tube as an advisor gets better every episode, and Technomage Galen is simply wonderful. Archeologist Eilerson does not fail to convince as an arrogant scientist. The other characters are far less interesting.

Even so, I am rather sad that TNT decided to cancel the show without ever waiting for spectators approval. Some of the 13 episodes were excellent, and I do sincerely hope that they will be able to continue someday in the future.
