The series premier is about what you'd expect
8 January 2007 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

While the very first glimpse of Babylon 5 was in the made for TV movie (THE GATHERING), this is the first regular episode. And, since the movie was the series pilot, there were a few changes. The doctor, second in command and station's telepath were both replaced, though Lyta Alexander (the telepath) did return to the series several years later. And, like almost every premier episode of every series ever made, there really isn't an over-abundance of plot--since all the major players in the series are being introduced. Sure, a lot of the show is about the growing tensions between the Narn and Centauri governments, but nothing of any serious consequence is accomplished. This really isn't a complaint--after all, how else COULD you start a TV series other than establishing the characters and setting the stage for future episodes?
