Several years after the end of the Great War (detailed in the main Babylon 5 TV series) the former servants of the now-exiled Shadows attempt to avenge their old masters by introducing a powerful biological weapon into Earth's atmosphere. After five years of adapting itself to humanity's genetic makeup, it will kill every human being on the planet. Since this plague was the product of a technology far ahead of humanity's, there isn't enough time to develop an original solution - instead, humanity will have to comb through the ruins of older alien civilizations with the hope of finding some ancient, advanced technology that can cure the disease. Leading this high-stakes archeological mission is a starship of the new Interstellar Alliance, the Excalibur, and its crew drawn from the Alliance's elite troubleshooting corps, the Rangers.Written by

Fiona Avery had completed the script for episode 16 before the series was cancelled. The episode, titled "Value Judgements", would have seen the Excalibur crew encounter fugitive telepath Alfred Bester (Walter Koenig, reprising his role from Babylon 5 (1994)). Koenig had already signed on to appear - and was reportedly very enthusiastic about the script - when the series was cancelled. See more »
Refresh me, Lieutenant. How did we get into the middle of this again?
I believe it was an act of mercy, sir.
Remind me never to do that again.
Aye, sir. No good deed goes unpunished.
I'll have that embroidered on a sampler when we have time.

Crusade was an excellent show and a very worth successor to Babylon 5. The premise was original and exciting, picking up where the last Babylon 5 movie (A Call to Arms) left off. But sadly Crusade was cancelled... before a single episode even aired. Why? Because series creator JMS would not put in what TNT wanted (example: lots of sex). Sadly it's true. The 13th episode was the last and no renewal is in sight. A lot of the episodes were pretty good. I curse TNT for cancelling this science fiction gem. Hopefully, some day, a SMART network will revive the show.
