Babylon 5 - The Incredible Sci-Fi Series

Series Accessories ~ Micro Machines




Print Media | Prequels | Season 1 | Season 2 | Season 3 | Season 4 | Season 5

When Babylon 5 aired on TV, it broke all the Rules:

  • "Sci-Fi has no viewership base. There's only room for one Sci-Fi series: Star Trek."

  • "You can't have good special effects on a budget that's a small fraction of "Star Trek" funding."

  • "Viewers don't have the patience for episodes linked into a continuous storyline."

  • "Declaring a 5-year story arc is suicide. The show would have no future. It's better to run it until people quit watching the show."

  • "You must have cute kids and robots to appeal to younger viewers."

  • "Don't 'mess around' with the characters, or have complicated storylines. You'll alienate the casual viewer."

It was time for the paradigm to be redefined...




Babylon 5 plays like a sci-fi novel: Episodes are linked sequentially, over a span of 5 years. Though there are stand-alone episodes, most have a definite place in the overall story.

The show is filmed for adults. Some themes of sex, violence, and horror could be disturbing for children. Also, Babylon 5 is not intended for the casual viewer. Watching the occasional episode would be like reading chapters 3, 9, and 13 of a sci-fi novel; it would make little sense!

Below, I have links to the excellent Lurker's Guide to Babylon 5.
