The Babylon Project

The Streibs are a race of aliens who abduct people of different species and perform experiments on them.


Just prior to 2258, the techno-mage Burell noted a large increase in traffic through her usually quiet planet Zafran VIII, mostly consisting of Drakh, Wurt and Streib, all of which were heading to the rim.[1]

Sometime prior to 2259, they invaded Minbari space, but were beaten back to their homeworld. The Minbari afterwards made the Streib "understand the depth of their mistake."

In 2259, they raided the shipping lanes in Sector 92, abducting dozens of individuals. After investigating reports of strange activity in the sector, John Sheridan along with a full escort from Delta Wing encountered a Streib vessel. All but one Starfury were destroyed outright, while Carlos Ramirez's fighter was disabled, forcing him to limp back to the station with a leaking reactor while Sheridan was forced to eject and was captured by the alien vessel. On board the Streib ship he was subject to experimentation and was forced to fight other prisoners, including Ta'Lon, with whom he later escaped after the EAS Agamemnon caught up with the ship at the Streib homeworld.[2]

In 2260, Galen landed on Z'ha'dum and observed some Streib among the thralls working for The Shadows.[1]

The Streib are servitors of the Shadows, working as technicians and scouts for the Darkness. The Streibs move across the galaxy in their collector ships, looking for test subjects. They take their captives into hyperspace where they conduct their dark experiements on them at their leisure.
