The Babylon project was born from the ashes of war, a dream given form to build a place where humans and aliens could work out their differences.
Built 10 years after the Earth - Minbari War Babylon 5 was the last of the Babylon stations, the other 4 having being destroyed or having vanished. It began as the last best hope for peace, bringing together different races in the hope of them finding common ground and understanding. To ensure the mistakes of the past were not repeated. In its first year it was commanded by Commander Jeffrey Sinclair and for 2 years by Captain John Sheridan and finally by Captain Elizabeth Lochley.
3 years after its construction the mission of the station changed and it became the last best chance of victory against an ancient enemy - the shadows, who had returned from their 1000 year sleep.
In the end the station, and those who lived and worked there, would change the course of history and the shape of the galaxy forever.
