babylon 5 intros

Babylon 5 was a five year story line of epic proportions. Although it got a bit managled towards the end, it is still one of the finest (if not the finest) science fiction television series made. This is the complete set of series introductions for the five year run

Series 1 : Jeffrey Sinclair

It was the dawn of the third age of manking
Ten years after the Earth-Minbari war
The Babylon Project was a dream given form
It’s goal : to prevent another war by creating a place where humans and aliens could work out their differences peacefully
It’s a port of call
Home away form home
For diplomates, hustlers, entrepreneurs and wanderers
Humans and aliens wrapped in two million, five hundred thousand tonnes of spinning metal
All alone in the night
It can be a dangerous place
But it’s our last best hope for peace
This is the story of the last of the Babylon stations
The year is 2258
The place is
Babylon 5

Series 2 : John Sheridan

The Babylon Project was our last, best hope for peace
A self-contained world, five miles long, located in neutral territory
A place of commerce and dipomancy for a quarter of a million humans and aliens
A shining beacon in space
All alone in the night
It was the dawn of the third age of mankind
The year the Great War came upon us all
This is the story of the last of the Babylon stations
The year is 2259
The name of the place is
Babylon 5

Series 3 : Susan Ivanova

The Babylon Project was our last, best hope for peace
It failed
But, in the year of the Shadow War, it became something greater
Our last, best hope for victory
The year is 2260
The place
Babylon 5

Series 4 : Various

This intro had the various cast members saying the lines

It was the year of fire
The year of destruction
The year we took back what was ours
It was the year of rebirth
The year of great sadness
A year of pain
And a year of joy
It was.. a new age
It was the end of history
It was the year everrything changed
The year is 2261
The place
Babylon 5

Series 5 : Various

This intro was made of soundbites from the preceeding four series of Babylon 5

And so it begins
There is a hole in your mind
What do you want?
No-one here is exactly what he appears
Nothings the same anymore
Commander Sinclair has been reassigned
Why don’t you eliminate the entire Narn homeworld while you are at it
I see a great hand, reaching out of the stars
Who are you?
President Clarke has signed a decree today, declaring martial law
These orders have forced us to declare indepence
Weapons supplies
Unless you people get of thier encounter suited butts and do something
You’re the one who was
If you go to Zahadum you will die
Why are you here?
Do you have anything worth living for?
I think of my beautiful city in flames
Like giants in the playground
Now get the hell out of our galaxy
We are here to place President Clarke under arrest
