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.

If you haven't watched Star Trek (original and next generation) and Babylon 5, then you just haven't watched real space sci-fi yet. B5 is the best space series up to now. You just want more...

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
