Trivia

When Zack Allan (Jeff Conaway) is talking about the trials they went through on Babylon 5, the words are actually executive producer, J. Michael Straczynski's own thoughts. Straczynski did indeed think, at times, that no one would get out alive. See more »

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.

Logical, but boring as hell.
4 January 2010 | by See all my reviews

I see here only one not glowing review and this is why I would like to chime in. While the episode does provide a logical conclusion to the series, it is barely watchable. It is trying to milk you for tears and nothing of interest happens. Granted, in real life a similar story would have likely had an ending like that, this is not a real life. This is science fiction, which should shed an original light on a human nature while inspiring us and making us say "wow". And for 5 years it did. However, only now, after watching the Babylon-5 finale, I do fully appreciate what SG-1 writers did with their finale "Unending". While individual stories and arcs were not always as great as some in Babylon's, SG-1 finale was far superior and incomparably more watchable. Adventures still happened, and they ended going towards another day of work - possibly another adventure, with hope and with a message that life goes on and there are still things to do and future to make. Babylon people just got sad and got on with their lives. Their lives after the series were not by all means boring, but the ending dwelled on the sad and made me only yawn. Don't get me wrong, I am not against sadness, I am for better writing about the sad things. This was a huge disappointment, after 5 brilliant seasons - just a boring blip trying to manipulate you into squeezing a tear.
