Babylon 5

Series Summary

Series Premise

In the year 2257, the Earth Alliance is preparing to place its Babylon 5 station into operation. It is the fifth Babylon station -- the first three were sabotaged and destroyed before they were completed, and Babylon 4 mysteriously disappeared within hours after having gone into service. The purpose of the Babylon Project is to serve as a kind of interplanetary "United Nations," a place where representatives of the major races of the Galaxy can meet to resolve conflicts and work for their worlds' mutual benefit. Besides the Earth Alliance, which is represented by station commander Commander Jeffrey Sinclair (later replaced by Captain John Sheridan), the other major powers are the Minbari, represented by Ambassador Delenn; the Centauri, represented by Ambassador Londo Mollari; the Narn, represented by Ambassador G'Kar; and the Vorlons, represented by Ambassador Kosh Naranek. Other key station personnel include second-in-command Commander Susan Ivanova, Security Chief Michael Garibaldi, Chief Medical Officer Stephen Franklin, and Ranger Marcus Cole. As time progresses, the peaceful purpose for the existence of Babylon 5 is compromised by the continuation of old conflicts between the Narn and Centauri races, revolt and upheaval within the Earth government, and the emerging threat from a powerful and mysterious race that has been dormant for over 1,000 years on the far edges of the Galaxy.
