13 episodes of Crusade were produced before TNT canceled the series.
According to posts by J Michael Straczynski, which are archived on jmsnews.com, TNT broadcast the episodes out of the intended sequence. The order of the episodes was then revised when they were re-broadcasted on the Sci-Fi channel, the Sci-Fi channel actually contacted Straczynski and asked which order he would prefer the episodes were broadcast. A third order was formally endorsed by Straczynski as the "true" chronological sequence of events for the filmed episode, as it appeared in The Official Babylon 5 Chronology (published in the pages of The Official Babylon 5 Magazine in 1999-2000). This particular ordering supersedes Straczynski's own "preferred" sequence from a strictly chronological and causal standpoint. The original broadcast order as set by TNT was used for the DVD releases.

(Straczynski's Preferred order)
A further seven other episodes were assigned, three of which made it to the script stage but were left unfilmed, while "Tried and True" and the "Sword trilogy" did not complete the scripting phase, and the remaining two episodes of the intended 22 episode order were left unassigned.
