Babylon 5, a neutral space station built to service the needs of all species throughout the galaxy, is the result of the peace following the Earth-Minbari war--a war that almost saw the annihilation of the human race. Inexplicably, when the Minbari had the humans pushed back to Earth and near the brink of utter destruction, they surrendered to the human forces. Now Jeffrey Sinclair, who disappeared and was unaccounted for during a brief battle in the war, heads up Babylon 5 and all the headaches that go along with it. Now the humans, Minbari, Narn, Centauri, Vorlons and the rest of the Alligned and Non-Alligned Worlds struggle to maintain a galactic peace, balancing on the edge of a very sharp sword that threatens to plunge them all into utter darkness.
