I work third shift and for the last few months have been working at home. Ran across the reruns on Comet. Been watching and enjoying the reruns while working. Haven't seen any episodes since it was on originally.
Since you are a visitor of this site, channel or group...you are a Babylon5 fan.
Well, so are we! You may (or not) remember that Babylon5 had a Tabletop Wargame at the end of the 90's.
Bab5 wars. Excellent models, in depth rules and loads of Babylon 5 fluff. Great times were had.
Alas, the company behind the game went bust. People were left with the miniatures, never to play again.
Well, it did not end there. We made it into a browser game. Playable for all. Free as can be.
All we ask is for friendly and mature players to join our community of fans.
Interested? Intrigued? Come take a look.
On our Facebook page ( https://www.facebook.com/groups/fieryvoid) you can find more info on our discord channel and the game itself.

Do you agree with me that Babylon 5 is much better and very interesting than Star Trek Deep Space Nine?
I still don't understand why this series was cancelled. In my opinion this series is so awesome, interesting story about search for cure.
Why good series are canceleld but real boring series as game of thrones or Marvel movies are still alive?

Hey everyone! Checking in to see how things are going, and bringing some more general updates.
You might have noticed that some wikis are showing new video content. The new video series, called The Loop, will have new videos weekly and will be replacing the old featured videos that were placed at the top of some wiki pages. The one I've seen around the movies/TV wikis is about The Mandalorian, and I actually like it, it's the kind of thing I'd check out while browsing on YouTube. So if you see new videos on the wikis, that's what's going on. You can read more about it in the Community Central staff blog post An Update on the Future of Featured Video.
For a nice overview of what Fandom has been up to for the past 12 months, check out the staff blog post This Year at Fandom - 2019.

Hey everyone! I'm going around to let communities know about a couple things. The first is a new feature called the Global Taxonomy, and you can read about in the Community Central staff blog post Introducing Global Taxonomy. This feature will better personalize wiki recommendations for you and visitors, which means people who would be interested in your wiki content will be better able to find it, and it will provide you with the ability to discover content that’s interesting and relevant to you.
Hope you find these useful as well!
In the episode Meditations On The Abyss, Gkar quotes fascinating ideas about the light on the wall, what is truth, and what is God, etc. It starts about 15 to 20 minutes into the episode. I was hoping to find the scene quoted so I could get a printed copy of all those wonderful thoughts.
In the B5 episode "Spider in the Web", there's some footage of what is supposed to be the San Diego wasteland.
Funny thing about that footage, as I've seen it before: It's stock footage from Captain Power and the Soldiers of the Future. In fact, it was from their first episode.
Compare the two. :)
On the show the Minbari, Centauri, Narn, humans, and Drakh are depicted as "major" younger races (militarily and/or economically powerful) while the races of the League of Non-Aligned Worlds come across as less significant - at any rate, they are in a less influential place in the Babylon advisory board and the ISA. This also seems to be demonstrated by the Dilgar War, when the Dilgar thrashed some League species and even the Narn to some extent, but were defeated by humans.
My question is, what factors lead to a species being "major" or "minor" in this way?
It's not simply tied to when they achieved starfaring, which I would expect (very roughly) indicates technological advancement. Some of the League races have been in space centuries longer than the humans, the Narn are about as technologically advanced as humans, and the Yolu (a League race) started starfaring about 2000 years before the Minbari! The Vree have gravimetric engines and the Abbai have energy shields, so they're more advanced than humans in military technology.
It also doesn't seem to be a simple matter of humans being more aggressive and expansionist. It's true that the Abbai, for example, are fairly peaceful folks. But the Dilgar, Narn, and Drazi are just as aggressive as humans, and the Hurr and Grome seem to be aggressive too, yet the humans seem to out-class them.
Are humans better organized, or more numerous? Do they happen to live far enough from their neighbors that they managed to colonize a larger number of planets and thus have more natural resources? Were the Dilgar and their victims just militarily incompetent?
I'm curious to know what other fans think, and/or what obscure sources might reveal.

Hello all. I am looking for screen used station signs in hd format to have printed and backlighted. On babylon 5 station there are a number of signs on the promenade area. Signs from the shops. Display console pictures. Let me know if you know where to find some pics please. I have had a hard time finding them.
Does anyone remember the Babylon 5 news letter? It was ah folded over sheet. I found a bunch that I had saved.
