Space Stations

Babylon 5 - Remote space station orbiting the planet Epsilon III in the year 2258 A.D. on the science fiction series BABYLON 5/SYN/1994-98.

Babylon 5 Space Station

Ten years after the Earth-Minbari War, the Babylon Project created a neutral ground where humans and aliens could work out their differences, peacefully. Babylon 5 [Babylon 1-4 were destroyed, disabled or disappeared] was a port of call for diplomats, hustlers, entrepreneurs and wanderers.

Initially, the 2,500,000 ton, 15.5 mile long space station was commanded by Commander Jeffrey Sinclair (Michael O'Hare). his crew members consisted of the strong-willed Russian-born Lt. Cmd. Susan Ivanova (Claudia Christian); the skeptical Security Chief Michael Garibalidi (Jerry Doyle); the compassionate black physician Dr. Stephen Franklin; and the brain-probing telepath Talia Winters (Andrea Thompson) who was capable of verifying the sincerity of negotiators.

When Sinclair relocated to the Minbari home world, he was replaced by Captain John Sheridan (Bruce Boxleitner), a veteran of the Minbari War who earned the nicknamed "Starkiller."

Among the contingent of alien races aboard Babylon 5 were Londo Mollari (Peter Jurasik), the crafty Centauri ambassador, and his Kow-towing aide Vir (Stephen Furst); Delenn, the spiritual Minabari ambassador (Mira Furlan) and her devoted aide Lennier (Billy Mummy); G'Kar (Andreas Katsuals), a hot-tempered reptilian Narn ambassador and his aide Na'Toth (Caitlin Brown/Mary Jane Adams); and Kosh, a mysterious Vorlon ambassador who lived inside an encounter suit away from the prying eyes of other races.

The control bridge of Babylon 5 monitored all space traffic especially those incoming vessels leaping through space via worm hold jump gates.

The Babylon 5 station would later be the staging platform for the Shadow Wars. The station was decommissioned in the year 2281 and then demolished by a series of internal explosions. See also  "The White Star"
