Walter Koenig hosts a behind-the-scenes look at Babylon 5. This special aired prior to the original series premiering in January 1994.
Clark has just declared marshal law, and while Nightwatch prepare to take control of the station, Zack has to decide whose side he's on. In an exercise of bad timing, the prophetic widow of emperor Turhan finally comes to the station, granting Londo the visit he's been begging her for for a long time.
With the Vorlons destroying whole worlds, Babylon 5 is struggling to cope with the refugees. And with one Vorlon aboard, they cannot make a move without them knowing about it. So Sheridan decides to kill him. On Centauri Prime, Cartagia explains to Londo how he will become a god when the Vorlons destroy the planet.
As Sheridan's forces continue towards Earth, Garibaldi is finally allowed to meet his employer, William Edgars, face to face on Mars, and is after telepath assisted interrogation finally told what he must do to gain Edgars' complete trust. Meanwhile Dr. Franklin discovers that Lyta can influence the Shadow modified telepaths.
As more telepaths arrive at the station, the denizens of Downbelow start taking notice. Tensions build until one of the telepaths is assaulted, and the others decide to take revenge - against Byron's wishes. Meanwhile, Franklin tries to find out why the Hyach are hiding part of their medical history.
It looks like the Alliance will get a break in the investigation of the recent shipping line attacks, when a possible witness may have survived the latest attack and taken refuge on the Drazi homeworld. Garibaldi is sent to find him, but Intelligence Chief's alcohol problem complicates the mission. G'Kar returns to Babylon 5 to discover that his book has been published, and he is now a revered religious figure.
Sheridan finally authorizes the White Star fleet to participate in the war. Delenn travels to Minbar to start a Minbari/Earth joint project to build a prototype White Star destroyer class ship. And Vir hires Franklin and Lyta to investigate why the Drazi don't return the bodies from destroyed Centauri ships.
Captain Lochley now has solid proof that Garibaldi is a disaster magnet: when he comes to the station to meet with one of his new company's subordinates, she's being sued by the owner of an illegal virtual reality "holo-brothel" and besieged by Soul Hunters looking for one of their soul vessels, this one containing the souls of the long-lost Ralga alien species.
A technomage named Galen predicts an imminent attack by the Drakh, the old allies of the Shadows. Through dreams, a thief, a captain, and a president are brought together to head them off. The president is John Sheridan. Because of his irrational behavior, Sheridan's friends begin to wonder about his sanity. It's up to all of them and two prototype battlecruisers, the Excalibur and the Victory, to stop the fleet and their planet-killer. But is there more to the Drakh's plan?
After being punished for retreat from combat, Ranger David Martel is given command of the Liandra, a haunted 20-year old Minbari fighting ship. He's escorting ambassadors to a secret archaeological site, the oldest city on record and a clue to a dangerous ancient race. Babylon 5: The Legend of the Rangers takes place in 2264 after the wars are over and a new age of space exploration has begun. The Interstellar Alliance has been organized to establish and maintain peace among its member worlds, including Earth. The Rangers are an elite military force made up of hand-picked young, smart, dedicated human and alien members who combine the high-tech elements of space travel with the idealism and honor of the knights of old. They encounter a previously unknown alien race whose lethal power is far greater than any force previously known to Earth or any other world in the Interstellar Alliance.
Col. Lochley asks a Catholic priest to come to Babylon 5 a few days before President Sheridan is to arrive for the Interstellar Alliance’s tenth anniversary celebration. A crew member who recently returned from a vacation on Earth had been complaining of hearing voices before finally barricading himself in a section of the station. The crewman, Burke, is now restrained within a security cell and claiming to be possessed by a demonic spirit...
En route to Babylon 5 for the anniversary celebration, Sheridan begrudgingly gives an interview to ISN. He mentions his regret that Londo will not be at the celebration to represent the Centauri, but that his ship will be picking up Prince Regent Vintari, third in line to the throne. The night before the rendezvous, Galen appears to Sheridan in a dream, and shows him a vision of the destruction of New York City...
