“the human military staff and alien diplomats stationed on a space station, Babylon 5, built in the aftermath of several major inter-species wars as a neutral ground for galactic diplomacy and trade. The major plotlines of Babylon 5 included the millennial conflict between ancient races and their aftermaths as well as intrigue and upheaval within races. The human characters, in particular, become pivotal to the resistance against Earth’s descent into totalitarianism.”Straczynski talked about Babylon 5: The Road Home

extensively on social media when the project was announced last week, saying the movie is “classic Babylon 5: raucous, heartfelt, nonstop, a ton of fun through time and space, and a love letter to the fans. I’m ridiculously excited about it because it feels the most B5-ish of anything we’ve done since the original show. Warners gave me complete freedom to tell the story I wanted and the animation was amazing. It’s fun, deep, emotional, classic B5.”Are you excited about Babylon 5
