Goofs

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 »

Quotes

[first lines]
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.

Incredible Finale to an Incredible Series
27 January 2006 | by (Battle Creek, MI) – See all my reviews

Babylon 5 was groundbreaking in many ways, not the least of which was its incredibly consistent high quality of writing and acting. Most of the episodes were written by series creator, J. Michael Straczynski, and there are moments throughout the entire series which are simply breathtaking.

But this, the final episode, rightly trumps them all. I truly believe that a finer 45 minutes of of TV (or cinema, for that matter) has never been produced. It's as if Joe took all the joy, all the sorrow, all the victory, all the tragedy, all the passion of the entire series, distilled it down to its purest essence, and put it into this episode. I've lost count how many times I've seen this episode, and it takes my breath away every time.

But be warned: you have to watch the entire show to get to this episode. As Joe always says, "It's about the process." You can't "read ahead" on this one -- you won't get it.

If you have never seen B5, do yourself a favor. Start from the beginning, and watch it. It doesn't matter if you're a sci-fi fan. If you're a human, with feelings, it will touch you.
