From the back cover...
The year is 2265 and much of the galaxy is happily growing closer together through the efforts of the Interstellar Alliance. The Anla’shok Rangers are the omnipresent policing force used to serve and protect the member worlds, from escorting diplomats to hunting down raiders and bringing them to justice. A cunning Ranger officer from one of these common missions questions the old ways and sets a spiral of events into motion that will reveal weaknesses in the Minbari’s ancient traditions, bring together unexpected allies, and pull the shroud from a deadly new enemy – the Hand.
The Legend of the Rangers was an interesting telemovie that brought several new ideas and events to bear in the Babylon 5 universe. This sourcebook for the Babylon 5 Roleplaying Game Second Edition gives the information concerning those events in a way that could be used by Games Masters and players to bring 2265 in vivid detail to their own campaigns. Although very specific in nature, The Legend of the Rangers set the stage for a number of new plotlines to spin off from the Rangers of that year, their vessels and evolving traditions, and their new and powerful foe.
