Babylon 5

Babylon 5 is the fifth station built by the Earth Alliance. The concept for a station dedicated to peace and intergalactic commerce came out of the Earth/Minbari War, in the hope that by working together the star powers would never again make war against one another. Babylon 1 and 2 were sabotaged. Babylon 3 blew up. Babylon 4 disappeared. The last of the Babylon stations, Babylon 5 is a symbol of humanity's willingness to endure against the odds to achieve a goal.

In the middle of the 23rd century, it exists as a floating oasis of tolerance and understanding in a galaxy marred by war. It is a place where members of five civilizations - Narn, Centauri, Vorlon, Minbari and Human - can put aside their differences and work together for peace.

The original vision of the Babylon project was lost when the Shadows arose from their hibernation in Z'ha'dum. They infiltrated Earthgov and the Psi Corps, while manipulating the other alien races into war against one another. Now an independent state (Severed Dreams), B5 is the base for the Army of Light against this great darkness.
