The last episode of season 5 was shot during season 4 (before Claudia Christian left the series). After news of the show being picked up for season 5 this episode was shelved on purpose until the series end. See more »


Babylon 5 is blown up as "a menace to navigation". The space station is in orbit of a mostly uninhabited planet. It is unlikely that any ship would ever come to within several light years of the station, it is hard to understand how it could be a menace to navigation even intact. Blown up it would be even worse. See more »

Michael Garibaldi: [voiceover] The Interstellar Alliance, based on the Homeworld of the Minbari Federation, was founded in the Earth year 2261 shortly after the end of the Shadow War, 20 years ago. Twenty years of history. Those of us who survived have seen it all and those of us who understand have been waiting and dreading the arrival of this day.

If you watch this and feel nothing, you are made of wood...store yourself out back!
25 October 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This series is a writers dream. This episode is the ultimate denouement. It ties all the loose ends together perfectly and leaves you without those nagging "I wonder what the characters would be doing years later?" questions. Immensely satisfying and sublimely sad. If you watch this episode without watching the rest of the series, you do not understand and will not. Go make a smoothie, sit on your deck and mock the series as "overly sentimental". If you DID watch the rest of the series, you will feel close to these characters in ways you could not dream being close to ANY fictional character and the death of one of the most important will affect you personally. Like a death in the family, personally. J. Michael Straczynski (sic?) is one of THE MOST undervalued writers of our time. Marvel's CIVIL WAR story arc ALONE would put him up there with nearly any writer you care to name. This series (of which he personally wrote 22 episodes) is his David, his Last Supper, his Ninth Symphony. Devalue him, this series and this episode and appear a fool or, as Londo says "...heir to the throne of the kingdom of idiots..."!
