Babylon 5 was a science fiction television programme from 1990s Earth.

Dave Young once likened his own situation to a plot line from that series. When the Eighth Doctor told him that the Kulan might not wipe out mankind because Dave had traces of Kulan DNA in his system, Dave likened the Kulan to the Minbari, who called off their war with Earth because "they found that their souls were being reborn in humans."

The Doctor, for his part, said he "could never get into" Babylon 5 because he found it unlikely that "godlike aliens [would be] disguised as angels." (PROSE: Escape Velocity) Nevertheless he had enough familiarity with the show to once describe the resort planet Kursaal as "Disneyland meets Babylon 5." (PROSE: Kursaal) Izzy Sinclair compared the TARDIS' upper view of space to the opening of the program. (COMIC: Ophidius)

Babylon 5 was among the 20th century Earth television shows broadcast by Reef Station One in the New Earth Republic during the 101st century. (PROSE: Synthespians™)

Sam Jones was able to deduce that a device she found in the Seychelles was a tracking device thanks to experience of watching the show. (PROSE: Bounty)

Behind the scenes Edit

  • J. Michael Straczynski, creator and writer of Babylon 5, had professed enjoyment of the 1996 Doctor Who TV movie shortly after its broadcast. He hoped the pilot would lead to a series and intended to watch it, despite such a series conceivably being a rival to his own then-running show. [1]
  • Tony Dow, the visual effects producer of the 1996 TV movie, was also the visual effects supervisor of Babylon 5. He also directed five episodes of the series.
  • Claudia Christian and Peter Jurasik were main cast members.
