Background
Babylon 5 is an American science fiction television series created by J. Michael Straczynski and produced by John Copeland. The show centers on the Babylon 5 space station: a focal point for politics, diplomacy, and conflict during the years 2257–2262. The five seasons of the series each correspond to one fictional sequential year in that time frame. The pilot film premiered on February 22, 1993. The regular series aired from January 26, 1994 and ran for five full seasons. The show spawned six television films and a spin-off series called Crusade, which aired in 1999 and ran for thirteen episodes. This award winning series broke new ground in television as the first program to create all of the visual effects using computer animation.
