Babylon 5

Babylon 5: The last best hope for intelligent TV science fiction.

This is a show put on by PTEN (Prime Time Entertainment Network), some kind of a division of Warner Brothers, concerning the years 2257 to 2262. Babylon 5 is the fifth of 5 space stations so far, the first three were sabotaged and the fourth mysteriously disappeared into a space-time rift. The space station is 5 miles long and houses a quarter million total humans and aliens

Executive Director / Creator: J. Michael Strazinski (Twilight Zone, Captain Power, animated Ghostbusters) On the internet, he is often abreviated as JMS or jms.

Music: Christopher Franke. Also made soundtracks to Universal Soldier, plus others for Sonic Images CGI: Foundation Imaging. Also does CGI for Hypernauts, a saturday morning TV show.

There are some people that believe that Babylon 5 is "just like Star Trek" (ST), and others that believe that it steals ideas from Star Wars (like Starfury / X - Wing similarity). The original Starfury looks nowhere nearly like the X - Wing, and the newest version only has a vague similarity.

B5 is very different from Star Trek in many ways. First, Babylon 5 is a show that has a definite start and end, and definite story line that connects episodes together (called a "story arc" by the creator of B5, can also be called an epic), where ST has a patchwork story, and the closest thing to a comprehensive story arc is the Dominion / Founder plotline.
