Babylon 5

Babylon 5

It was the last of the Babylon stations.
There would never be another.

The Babylon Project

It was the dawn of the third age of mankind.

Ten years after the Earth-Minbari War.
The Babylon Project was a dream given form.

Its goal: to prevent another war, by creating a place where humans and aliens can work out their differences peacefully.
It's a port of call – home away from home – for diplomats, hustlers, entrepreneurs, and wanderers.

Humans and aliens, wrapped in two million, five hundred thousand tons of spinning metal... all alone in the night. It can be a dangerous place, but it's our last best hope for peace.

This is the story of the last of the Babylon stations.
The year is 2258.
The name of the place is Babylon 5.

- Commander Jeffrey Sinclair

2258-2262

It began in the Earth year 2257, with the founding of the last of the Babylon stations, located deep in neutral space. It was a port of call for refugees, smugglers, businessmen, diplomats . . . and travelers from a hundred worlds. Could be a dangerous place – but we accepted the risk, because Babylon 5 was our last, best hope for peace.
