Babylon 5 is a five-mile long space station located in neutral space. Built by the Earth Alliance in the 2250s, it's goal is to maintain peace among the various alien races by providing a sanctuary where grievances and negotiations can be worked out among duly appointed ambassadors. A council made up of representatives from the five major space-faring civilizations - the Earth Alliance, Minbari Federation, Centauri Republic, Narn Regime, and Vorlon Empire - work with the League of Non-Aligned Worlds to keep interstellar relations under control. Aside from its diplomatic function, Babylon 5 also serves as a military post for Earth and a port of call for travelers, traders, businessmen, criminals, and Rangers.

Amazing series; completely broke the mould of science fiction TV. So many fantastic characters, who unusually for science fiction actually underwent character development during the course of the story arc - G'Kar and Londo especially, With an honourable mention for Bester - a classic villain in the Servalan (Blakes 7) mould.

The series lost a little after the tension of the Shadows' emergence was revealed, but even the network screwing with the schedule and messing up the plan for series 4/5 couldn't stop B5 being a TV masterpiece.

It hard to imagine the masterful reboot of Battlestar Galactica existing if B5 hadn't rewritten the rules first.

Watched through this show a few years ago. Absolutely brilliant in its first 4 seasons but it fell away in the final season. One of the best Sci-fi shows

It's hard to express how much I love this series and its cast. It has a complex story, superb writing and great character development. My favorite characters would be Delenn, G'Kar, Garibaldi, Londo.
If you haven't seen it yet, do it.
