A nice character piece for most of them. I like the wry Minbari first officer and the young tough captain. Want to see more of everybody else: the dangerous special ops who's quick and talented but still becomes speechless around G'Kar, the fierce-looking tactical woman, the nicely voiced Minbari healer, the Narn woman... I like her.
It's an action piece, an obvious pilot for this hopeful series. Here, they have a problem, well...three. They solve them. I'd like to get to know these people and this haunted ship better.
Beautiful music by Franke working some of the old themes from Babylon 5, the cancelled game Into the Fire, and lots of new stuff. Gorgeous CGI stuff.
I like the little references back that populate this universe, and the hints into this crew and this new enemy. I have faith it's not just a retread of the big bad Shadows. Crusade was going to solve its big problem in two years anyway, and segue into a much bigger moral problem. I believe this is what J. Michael Straczynski has on the drawing board for this proposed series.
The characters look fun to play around with. That's the most important thing.
