The Babylon Project

'Babylon 5: Point of No Return (Season by Season Guides)' is a guide for the third season of Babylon 5. It contains a synopsis of every episode of the 22 episodes of the third season and background information on what went right, what went wrong and memories of how the creators approached storylines and how it fits into the big story arc. The information comes directly from the cast, the directors and the series creator J. Michael Straczynski, who comments on every episode.


Now in its fifth hit season, Babylon 5--TV's hottest interstellar science fiction phenomenon--has spawned its own series of definitive episode guides! Catch up on all the action, show by show, from the very beginning with the Babylon 5: Season by Season guidebooks.

Babylon 5: Point of No Return begins with a fascinating look at another innovation for the already groundbreaking series--its pioneering use of computer generated special effects. Jane Killick's behind-the-scenes chronicle reveals how effects master Ron Thornton and his Foundation Imaging team made B5 the first TV show to create all of its breathtaking special effects exclusively through computer graphics, from spaceships and planets to galactic battles.

In addition, Babylon 5's third season guide presents a thrilling summation of the series major turning point: the chain of events that would culminate in the devastating Shadow War. And of course, episode-by-episode summaries--with Killick's comprehensive analysis--cover all of the third season's twenty-two shows, including "Matters of Honor," "Point of No Return," "Ship of Tears," and the stunning finale, "Z'ha'dum."
