Babylon 5 is an American science fiction television series created, produced and largely written by J. Michael Straczynski. The show centres on the Babylon 5 space station: a focal point for politics, diplomacy, and conflict during the years 2257-2262. With its prominent use of planned story arcs, the series was often described as a “novel for television”.
Series 02 was titled Babylon 5: The Coming of the Shadows.
Part of the Babylon 5 franchise.
Captain John Sheridan assumes the military governance of the station after Sinclair is reassigned, without explanation, to Minbar. He and the command staff discover that now-president Morgan Clark arranged the assassination of President Santiago. Conflict develops between the Babylon 5 command staff and the Psi Corps, an increasingly autocratic organisation which oversees and controls the lives of human telepaths.
Ambassador Mollari, in preparation for the death of the ailing Centauri Emperor, works with Lord Refa to assassinate any challengers to the throne, while continuing to utilise Mr. Morden and his “associates” – the Shadows – against the Narn. When the emperor dies, Mollari and Refa place the emperor’s unstable nephew, Cartagia, on the throne. Through him they instigate full-scale war with the Narn, using weapons of mass destruction to conquer the Narn homeworld.
Earth’s government becomes more totalitarian, suppressing dissent and broadcasting propaganda. Kosh and other Vorlons approach Sheridan and reveal themselves to be the enemies of the Shadows, asking for Sheridan’s help to fight them.
