The Babylon Stations

Babylon 1

Babylon 1, originally known simply as The Babylon Station, was the first space station built by the Earth Alliance under the Babylon Project. [1] During construction, Babylon 1's infrastructure collapsed and exploded as a result of sabotage. Construction worker Thomas Jordan had just left the station. [2][3] Part of its materials were recycled to construct Babylon 2.

The second attempted station in the Babylon Project, Babylon 2 was also sabotaged and destroyed, exploding during construction.[3] Part of its materials were also recycled to build the next station.

Babylon 5 was ultimately constructed and was the final Babylon station.


  • Though only Babylons 1, 4 & 5 were ever seen, it appears as though they were colour coded in spectrum order (Red, Orange, Yellow, Green & Blue), which would make the unseen Babylons 2 & 3 Orange and Yellow respectively.[4]
  • JMS has stated that the intended design of the first three Babylon stations was the same as that of B4, though none of them got anywhere near completion.[5] However, what little was seen of the (incomplete) Babylon Station in "In the Beginning" shows that it was a somewhat different design than either Babylons 4 or 5.
