Plot Summary

In the year 2258, it is ten years after the Earth-Minbari War. Commander Sinclair takes command of a giant five-mile-long cylindrical space station, orbiting a planet in neutral space. At a crossroads of interstellar commerce and diplomacy, Cmdr Sinclair (2d season Captain Sheridan) must try to establish peace and prosperity between various interstellar empires, all the while fighting forces from within the Earth Alliance. It is a precarious command, particularly given that sabotage led to the destruction of Babylon stations 1, 2, and 3 and 4 vanished without trace. Written by Tony Lammens

Trivia Due to Michael O'Hare struggling with an increasingly debilitating case of schizophrenia, which caused him to miss an increasing amount of time from work as the first season progressed, O'Hare was eventually replaced by Bruce Boxleitner. At first, Creator J. Michael Straczynski told O'Hare he would hold production of the show, so that O'Hare could get the help he needed, but O'Hare refused. He felt it was unfair to the rest of the cast and crew to be left without work for so long, so he and J. Michael Straczynski mutually agreed to have O'Hare leave at the first season's conclusion, with J. Michael Straczynski utilizing a "trap door" storyline to explain the departure of Sinclair at the beginning of the second season. Straczynski also honored O'Hare's request to keep the real reason for the departure a secret until after O'Hare's passing in October 2012. See more »
Goofs The series makes the constant error in science fiction of implying that the planet of Mars is "on the way to Earth." For more than six months out of the year, Mars is on the opposite side of the Sun than the Earth is. Considering that any ships coming to Earth would be able to travel there from nearly any direction (or if they use a jump gate as is shown in the series from a specific single direction) then there would be no reason for it to travel anywhere near Mars.

Quotes Mr. Morden: What do YOU want?
Ambassador Vir Cotto: I'd like to live just long enough to be there when they cut off your head and stick it on a pike as a warning to the next ten generations that some favors come with too high a price. I want to look up into your lifeless eyes and wave like this.

Ambassador Vir Cotto: Can you and your associates arrange that for me, Mr. Morden?
