Babylon 5 scifi TV series: major retrospective (video).

May 24, 2022 | By | Reply More

Star Trek, the pop cultural phenomenon, dominated science fiction on television in the late 1980s. There seemed to be no place for anything else with Star Trek The Next Generation establishing the franchise’s legacy for decades to come.

That is, until J. Michael Straczynski, John Copeland, and Douglass Netter teamed together to develop Babylon 5. The epic space opera was one of the first serious efforts to create a television book with serialised long form narrative.

While it was never as successful as Star Trek, its influence on the genre and the television landscape in general cannot be overstated.
