J. Michael Straczynski's epic space opera Babylon 5 is unusual in that the science fiction show comprises a single story evolving over five years. This volume provides a broad overview of the tale as well as examining the minutiae of each episode. There are detailed plot synopses, a guide to the station that gives the series its name, a history of the Babylon 5 universe, and a lighter look at the characters. The book also quotes some of the show's more humorous dialogue. There is an introductory essay by the programme's creator, and an enlightened discussion of the series' influences, themes, and the famed story arc.
