The show has promise. JMS provides the setting for a new slice of the Babylon 5 universe that fits into the existing B5 arc. G'Kar, a main stay in the original series, provides a good tie in and Andreas delivers another great job of acting. One can only wonder what characters and actors will return.
The depth of background JMS gives the characters early on is refreshing. Unlike other pilots, one is not left waiting for future episodes to flesh out characters. This makes the crew real and the humor less contrived.
The computer generated imagery (CGI) is prominent and more detailed than a typical episode. New aspects will create questions for the die hard fan. A bonus is the chance to see the Ranger base on Minbar for the first time. If you like the released promotional pictures and wallpaper, you will love these scenes.
The pilot is good entertainment for the novice and a "must see" for the devotee.
