Babylon 5 war nach dem langen Krieg zwischen Menschen und Minbari unsere letzte Hoffnung auf Frieden. Doch diese Hoffnung scheiterte. Als der Krieg gegen die Schatten begann, wurde Babylon 5 zu etwas Größerem: zu unserer einzigen Hoffnung auf den Sieg. So ungefähr kann die Handlung der Serie "Babylon 5" zusammengefasst werden. Als der Schattenkrieg wird die kriegerische Auseinandersetzung zwischen den Schatten und ihren Verbündeten wie den Drakh und den Centauri auf der einen Seite und auf der anderen Seite der Armee des Lichts, gebildet von den Vorlonen, Minbari (nur der religiösen Kaste und Ranger) und Menschen (nur Babylon 5 und Ranger) sowie vielen Mitgliedern der Liga der blockfreien .

Sie versuchen, durch Chaos und Konflikte die Evolution zu beschleunigen und den Aufstieg der Stärksten sicherzustellen.
Ihre alles entscheidende Frage lautet: "Was willst du? Die Schatten tolerieren die Anschauungen der Vorlonen nicht bzw. Zu den Hilfsvölkern der Schatten gehören die Drakh , die nach ihrem Verschwinden alles daransetzen, das Erbe der Schatten anzutreten.
Weitere Völker sind die Zener und die Soldaten der Finsternis. Einige Helfer der Schatten entstammten der Besatzung der Icarus.
Zu diesen gehörten ein Mann namens Morden , Anna Sheridan und Justin. Ihre Raumschiffe benötigen ein lebendiges Wesen als eine Art Zentralprozessor.

Seine Stellvertreterin ist Susan Ivanova. Die zierlich anmutende Frau kann manchmal härter als ihr Kommandant sein, zeigt jedoch auch diplomatisches Geschick.
Sheridan und Ivanova bilden ein perfektes Team für das Kommando über die Raumstation. Michael Garribaldi ist der Sicherheitschef, der jedoch bereits mehrfach aufgefallen ist wegen Alkoholproblemen und Aufmüpfigkeit gegenüber seinen Befehlshabern.
Dennoch ist er ein fähiger Sicherheitschef, der seine Aufgaben ernst nimmt. Die Botschafterin der Minbari Delenn kennt die Bedrohung, die von den Schatten ausgeht, ganz genau.
Doch lange hüllt sie sich in Schweigen und umgibt sich in Geheimniskrämerei, bevor sie genügend Vertrauen in Sheridan fassen kann, um ihn und sein Team einzuweihen.
In der folgenden Zeit kommt sie den Menschen und Sheridan näher und gründet mit ihm zusammen die Allianz gegen die Schatten.
G'Kar ist der Botschafter der Narn. Er liebt sein Volk über alles und aus diesem Grund ist er nach der Besatzung durch die Centauri vogelfrei.
Er gründet eine Widerstandsorganisation gegen die Centauri-Besatzung und wird gleichzeitig auch ein wichtiges Mitglied der Allianz.
Die Figur des Londo Molari, dem Botschafter der Centauri, ist sehr ambivalent. Einerseits ist Molari sehr machtgierig und hasst die Narn über alles.
Andererseits hat er im Gegensatz zu einigen seiner Partner manchmal noch etwas wie ein Gewissen. Auch der Einsatz der Massenvernichtungswaffen bereitet ihm kein Vergnügen, dennoch sonnt er sich gerne im Ruhm des Sieges, ohne zu wissen, mit welchen Mächten er sich verbündet hat.
Der Krieg gegen die Schatten und die Nebenhandlungen sind in "Babylon 5" perfekt inszeniert. Dabei handelt es sich nicht um einfache Weltraum-Action, sondern dem Zuschauer wird eine komplexe und vielschichtige Handlung geboten, die immer wieder für Überraschungen sorgt.
Neben der Handlung und den Charakteren sind auch die Spezialeffekte vom Feinsten. Die Geschichte ist sehr spannend, es gibt aber immer wieder Folgen, die sehr lustig sind oder zumindest witzige Elemente enthalten.
Alles in allem eine sehr sehenswerte Serie in fünf Staffeln, wobei die dritte und die vierte Staffel eindeutig den Höhepunkt darstellen.
Um der komplexen Handlung folgen zu können, muss der Zuschauer natürlich auch die ersten beiden Staffeln kennen.
Eigentlich war die fünfte Staffel als Teil der Geschichte über den Schattenkrieg gedacht, doch dann wurden die Gelder gestrichen.
Als die Produzenten die fünfte Staffel doch genehmigten, war es bereits zu spät, um sie noch in die Haupthandlung zu integrieren.
Daher erzählt sie einen Teil der Geschichte der jungen Allianz nach dem Krieg gegen die Schatten. Und zum Thema Überraschungen: auch die Motive der Schatten stellen ein Geheimnis dar, das auf durchaus überraschende Weise geklärt wird.
Bereits in den Jahren zuvor hatten die Schatten die Centauri im Narn-Centauri-Krieg sowie einige Liga-Völker im erzwungenen Kampf gegen andere Liga-Völker unterstützt.
Anfangs scheint niemand der Übermacht der Schattentechnologie gewachsen zu sein, bis die Vorlonen am 4. August zeigen, dass auch eine Flotte der Schatten besiegt werden kann siehe Zeit des Abschieds.
Darafhin unterzeichnen viele Liga-Welten des Babylon-Vertrag für gegenseitige Verteidigung. Als man im November entdeckt, dass die Schattenschiffe durch starke Telepathen blockiert werden können siehe Die Schlacht der Telepathen , scheint erstmals eine nennenswerte Waffe gefunden zu sein - in der Folgezeit werden auf vielen Schiffen der Armee des Lichts Telepathen verschiedenster Völker stationiert.
Die Schatten wiederum treiben mehrere Wochen lang Millionen Flüchtlinge scheinbar ziellos angegriffener Welten im Sektor 83 zusammen, um sie dort mit einem Angriff zu vernichten siehe Der Grosse Schlag.
Die Schatten merken daraufhin, dass sie ihre Strategie ändern müssen. She proved to be a strong and capable leader, finding solutions to many crises and coping with the ones that had no solutions.
During the Brakiri Day of the Dead , in which the dead return for one night, the Brakiri on the station purchase a part of it for the night which includes Lochley's quarters.
She is subsequently visited by Zoe, who confirms that she had in fact deliberately committed suicide by overdosing on drugs.
Prior to this, nobody knew for sure if Zoe's death was an accidental overdose or a deliberate suicide. The series Crusade is set approximately five years after the events of the fifth season of Babylon 5 and show that she is still the Captain.
In Babylon 5: The Lost Tales , Lochley is still in command of the station but now holds the rank of EarthForce Colonel. It is unknown whether she and Gideon are still intimate.
During her communication with President Sheridan, Lochley says of Dr Stephen Franklin "Oh, I thought you'd heard. Doctor Franklin went with G'Kar, exploring beyond the Rim.
Actor Tracy Scoggins, who portrays Lochley, admitted on the DVD commentary to having difficulty to delivering the line, at one point nearly breaking down in tears.
The line was a subtle eulogy to both actors. Marcus Cole was played by Jason Carter in the third and fourth seasons of the show. The character's backstory is given as being born on the Arisia Mining Colony, where his family operated a relatively dangerous mining operation.
His brother William had left the colony and become a Ranger on Minbar ; he was killed by the Shadows while visiting Marcus on Arisia. Marcus was one of the few survivors if not the only survivor of the attack.
Much of Marcus Cole's early background is told in the novel To Dream In the City of Sorrows by Kathryn Drennan.
Marcus Cole joined the Rangers following the death of his brother, William, and at times he seems to have joined the Rangers as a form of guilt over his brother's death.
Cole became close friends with Dr. Stephen Franklin. Defending Delenn during her transition to become "Ranger One", Cole engaged Neroon in a fierce one-on-one battle.
Despite losing, and nearly being killed, he earned Neroon's respect, even getting Neroon to laugh warmly. It was also revealed on the show episode: The Summoning that Marcus Cole was a virgin, a character aspect which was a marked departure for a dashing hero role.
However, the combination of his virginity and fighting skill once led him to only half-jokingly compare himself to Sir Galahad A Late Delivery From Avalon.
He fell in love with Susan Ivanova. However, the two did not become involved in the course of the television series.
Some attribute this to Ivanova's previous history of disastrous romantic relationships, such as her relationship with Talia Winters.
Later, after a devastating attack on Ivanova and Cole's White Star during the battle to reclaim Earth from the tyrannical government of President Clark, Cole took the severely injured Ivanova to Babylon 5.
Using an alien execution device that takes one person's life-energy and transfers it to another, he sacrificed his life to save hers.
His corpse was then preserved by Ivanova's request in cryogenic suspension in the future hope that he might be revived.
This was actually not shown in the series, but in the credits of " Sleeping in Light ". The credits showed each character as we first saw them and as we last saw them, and the last image of Cole showed a cryogenic capsule showing that he was preserved at Captain Ivanova's request.
It takes place hundreds of years after the series ends. Cole still preserved in cryogenic suspension is revived when the homeworld of those who built the life-energy transfer machine was found.
He then proceeds to create a clone of Ivanova by enlisting one of Garibaldi's descendants to help him. Endowing it with her exact memories by stealing the scans done of her memory, he then strands them on a lush, fertile and uncharted world with the intent of living "happily ever after" together.
There are significant moral questions raised by his actions in this story, but JMS has been quoted as "wishing to give the character the happy ending he deserves" while at the same time raising the type of ethical question for which Babylon 5 is famous.
Na'Toth is the aide to Narn Ambassador G'Kar. She was played by Julie Caitlin Brown in the first season. For the second season, Brown was replaced by Mary Kay Adams.
Na'Toth was written out of the series after appearing in two more episodes. Brown returned to reprise the role in the fifth-season episode " A Tragedy of Telepaths ".
In The Babylon Files , a Babylon 5 guidebook, series creator Straczynski said he had considered having G'Kar have a "revolving-door" series of aides, akin to Murphy Brown.
Na'Toth was the second aide to G'Kar, after his first aide Ko'Dath died in an airlock accident. When Na'Toth arrived, a member of the Narn assassins' guild was attempting to kill G'Kar at the behest of an old rival.
G'Kar was eventually kidnapped by the assassin. Na'Toth went to the assassin and claimed to be his backup. She was then able to disable the pain device that had been placed on G'Kar, allowing G'Kar to defeat the assassin, who left the station before the assassin guild had him killed.
Na'Toth went home to Narn at some point during the second season. She was on Narn when the Centauri used mass drivers to pluck asteroids out of orbit and bomb the Narn homeworld.
Na'Toth was missing and presumed dead. In the fifth season, Na'Toth was found to be alive and imprisoned in the Centauri Royal Palace " A Tragedy of Telepaths ".
Londo Mollari and G'Kar smuggled her from the palace, and arranged for her to be sent back home to receive treatment for her injuries.
Na'Toth did not appear in any further Babylon 5 television episodes or movies. The short story True Seeker , published in the July issue 23 of the Official Babylon 5 Magazine , depicts Na'Toth as living on Narn in the winter of and enjoying a state of celebrity.
The book Out of the Darkness by Peter David suggested that as of Na'Toth was still alive and living on Narn. Zack Allan was played by Jeff Conaway.
He regularly appeared in the show from season 2 onwards. During the second and third seasons of the series he was a security officer on the Babylon 5 station.
In the fourth season, he was promoted to become Babylon 5's Security Chief and he retains that position through to the end of the series' fifth and final season.
Briefly in season 2 and 3, Allan was a member of Nightwatch , a civilian para-police force created by Earth Alliance President Morgan Clark to expose and arrest "traitors to Earth".
True to form, Zack joined Nightwatch for the bonus pay they offered, without paying much attention to their political views and fascist nature.
However, he had the truth of their nature driven home when a shopkeeper accused of sedition for publicly criticizing Clark's presidency was physically dragged away from his store and imprisoned by Nightwatch officers in the episode, " The Fall of Night ".
After this experience Zack agreed to help Babylon 5's command staff, eventually playing a critical role in " Point of No Return " in leading the bulk of the station's Nightwatch into a trap set up to capture them.
Allan was the second aide to B5 Chief of Security Michael Garibaldi from Following Garibaldi's resignation as chief of security in season 4, Allan was appointed Chief of Security.
He held the position for many years; except for a brief stint back on Earth, he remained there until the station was decommissioned in Because of this, he was the only one not to receive his invitation to Sheridan's farewell party in Sleeping in Light , though Allan would still meet Sheridan one more time as Sheridan took one last walk through the station.
In Sleeping in Light , he walked with a noticeable limp, which has never been explained on screen. In the voiceover commentary of the episode, series creator J.
Michael Straczynski explained that Zack was involved in heroic activity and lost his leg. In keeping with his previous experience with uniforms, it is suggested that the prosthetic he was supplied with never fit correctly.
Later in the episode, after the aged and abandoned Babylon 5 was destroyed and the Drakh influence on Centauri Prime was exposed and eliminated, Zack joined the Rangers and became Centauri Emperor Vir Cotto 's assistant.
Lyta Alexander was played by Patricia Tallman. Lyta was introduced in the pilot episode " The Gathering " as a telepath assigned to the Babylon 5 space station by the Psi Corps , a fictional organization providing support to telepaths and monitoring their activity.
However, she did not appear in the remainder of Season One due to a dispute concerning Tallman's salary. After Thompson left the series due to disagreements regarding the amount of screen time given to her character,  Lyta returned as a recurring character in Seasons Two and Three, after Capt.
John Sheridan took over as station commander, and became a regular cast member from Season Four onward. Her character simply resumed the dramatic arc once intended for Thompson's.
In the series' pilot, she is described as a sixth-generation telepath , although she points out that telepathy may have been running in her family undetected even earlier, since telepaths were not monitored before that generation.
In the series it is stated that Lyta was trained by the Psi Corps , and that she briefly interned with the Psi Cops division.
In , she was assigned as Babylon 5's first commercial telepath. In Season Two, Lyta's experience with the Vorlon ambassador permanently changed her.
She was recalled from her assignment a few weeks later and questioned regarding her encounter with Kosh. Interrogated for months by the Psi Corps, she eventually escaped and joined the Mars Resistance.
While underground, she uncovered information regarding a mole among the Babylon 5 command staff, and returned to the station in late where she revealed Talia Winters as an unwitting mole for secret forces in EarthGov and Psi Corps.
There, she was modified by the Vorlons, given gill-like implants to allow her to breathe in a Vorlon environment, the ability to "carry" a Vorlon consciousness, and tremendously increased telepathic and psychokinetic powers.
Even she did not initially realize the full potency of her new abilities. She returned to Babylon 5 as an aide to Ambassador Kosh. In Season Four, Lyta was key to eventual resolution of the Shadow War on Coriana 6, serving as the vessel through which Sheridan and Delenn confronted the elder races and forced them to leave the galaxy.
Using unknown abilities and implanted instructions from the Vorlons, she triggered the destruction of the planet to spite Alfred Bester and to prevent Shadow technology from falling into the wrong hands.
She would go on to play a decisive role in the end game of the Earth Civil War, triggering the Shadow-modified telepaths smuggled aboard Earth ships to disable the fleet at Mars.
In Season Five, Alexander became romantically involved with Byron , revealing to the telepaths that they had been created by the Vorlons as weapons for their war with the Shadows.
After Byron's death, Alexander was inspired by his cause to create a homeworld for telepaths, and became the leader of a movement sponsoring violent resistance against the Corps.
Lyta also began to more thoroughly explore the abilities the Vorlons had given her. She was eventually arrested aboard Babylon 5 for supporting terrorism by John Sheridan.
Former Narn Ambassador G'Kar took her with him on a mission of exploration. Lyta does not appear in any of the canonical material released since the end of the series.
It is strongly implied in Crusade and some of the canonical novels that her actions both on Babylon 5 in and afterward led to the Telepath War of the mids, in which she was killed.
According to Straczynski,   Lyta was intended to appear in the Crusade episode "The Path of Sorrows" as part of a flashback, but Tallman's salary could not be negotiated.
The scene as aired featured an unnamed telepath who died striking against the Psi Corps. Whether or not this was intended to be Lyta, Straczynski confirmed Lyta did die in such an attack.
In the aforementioned script book, Straczynski wrote that both Lyta and Lennier were killed in the explosion of Psi Corps Headquarters in a major battle of the Telepath War.
Hints about her death had also been stated by Straczynski in posts to the Babylon 5 newsgroup,  and in the final novel of the Psi Corps Trilogy by J.
Gregory Keyes. G'Kar is the Narn ambassador to Babylon 5 and was played by Andreas Katsulas in seasons He makes his first appearance in The Gathering as a villainous diplomat opposite Londo Mollari , being constantly engaged in insidious, if petty and often comical schemes, usually driven by his hostility to his people's historical enemies, the Centauri , whom Londo represents.
However, in the course of the series, he is transformed into a Messianic figure and the foremost spiritual leader of his people.
Londo Mollari was played by Peter Jurasik in seasons As a member of one of the oldest Noble Houses of the Centauri Republic, he is the Centauri ambassador to Babylon 5.
In the words of series creator J. As the events of the Shadow War come to a peak, Mollari is promoted to the position of advisor on planetary security.
Later, with Cartagia dead and a Vorlon fleet en route to destroy Centauri Prime, Mollari is promoted to the position of Prime Minister, making him temporarily head of state until a new Emperor can be elected.
Following the galactic war with the Shadows , Mollari eventually rises to become Emperor of the Centauri Republic , taking the title Emperor Mollari II, since another member of his family was Emperor in the past.
The Earth Alliance was a major galactic superpower in the Babylon 5 universe. The name of its military force is EarthForce.
Earth Alliance had gained more technology than any other race in the known Babylon 5 universe: Dilgar, Narn, Centauri, Shadow, Minbari, and Vorlon tech all at one point in time.
It was founded at the end of the twenty-first century, after the Third World War: first as a loose coalition of nations, then as a tight alliance of nearly every nation on Earth as well as Alliance-controlled colonies throughout the Galaxy, though colonial populations have had a history of independence-driven rebellion, especially Mars.
The Alliance is a unicameral representative democracy under the leadership of an elected President with a strong military.
In one second-season episode " And Now For a Word " , the Alliance is said to consist of 24 outposts and colonies in over a dozen solar systems.
Since the end of the Earth-Minbari War , the Alliance had prospered in interstellar trade , though some influential factions had become increasingly xenophobic and isolationist.
Following the assassination of President Luis Santiago , the new President, Morgan Clark, formed Nightwatch a pervasive secret police and dissolved the Senate , turning Earth and her colonies into a totalitarian fascist state.
Colonel Ari Ben Zayn Gregory Martin is an EarthForce Intelligence officer who investigated Commander Jeffrey Sinclair and his command staff in the Babylon 5 episode " Eyes ".
Colonel Ben Zayn's investigation was one of several conducted by Earth Force Internal Affairs as the events on Mars were putting the command staff of colonies and stations in question.
Ben Zayn's interest was not of investigation, but one of asserting control as he was passed over for command of Babylon 5 in favour of Sinclair by the Minbari , which did not sit well with Ben Zayn.
Ben Zayn's true intentions were discovered by his Psi Corps Military Specialist Harriman Gray, as Ben Zayn is a close friend of Psi Corps official Alfred Bester.
He was defeated by Gray and Sinclair and sent back to Earth for investigation into his activities. The character appears in seasons one through five , Thirdspace and The River of Souls.
First credited as "Tech 1" he becomes Lt. JG David Corwin. He is later promoted to full Lieutenant. He occasionally fills in for the lack of a Second in Command in season five see also B5 government.
In River of Souls , which takes place after the station is returned to Earth Alliance jurisdiction, it is implied that he has been officially made XO.
He is named for Norman Corwin. General Richard Franklin Paul Winfield is an EarthForce general.
His sole screen appearance was in the episode " Gropos ". Richard Franklin is the father of Babylon 5's chief of medical staff, Doctor Stephen Franklin.
The relationship between father and son is strained, due to the General's Human-centric beliefs. Richard Franklin was often away from home as Stephen was raised.
Franklin is the commander of the Earth Alliance th Infantry Division and is known by the nicknames "Old Firestorm", "Hero of the Canal Wars", "Scourge of Janos 7" and "Liberator of the African Block".
General William Hague Robert Foxworth is Chairman of EarthForce 's Joint Chiefs of Staff and the first leader of the resistance against the authoritarian regime of Earth Alliance President Morgan Clark.
Hague was able to escape the Sol system on board the EAS Alexander. EarthForce ships that remained loyal to Hague were hunted down and destroyed leaving only the Alexander.
Hague was killed shortly after in a firefight with the EAS Clarkstown. He was replaced as the leader of the resistance by Captain John Sheridan.
Foxworth portrays Hague in two episodes as a supporting role for John Sheridan as a contact in the underground resistance against Morgan Clark.
Many of the characters mention his name on referring to the sub-arc regarding the resistance which lends importance to Hague's role offscreen.
General Lefcourt first appeared in Babylon 5: In the Beginning where he and another Earth Alliance official quizzed ambassador Londo Mollari about the Minbari.
Despite being warned by Mollari to send only a single ship to make contact with the Minbari lest they are perceived as a threat, Lefcourt brashly asserted that the Earth Alliance had taken care of the Dilgar and it could take care of the Minbari as well.
Mollari commented that this attitude was both arrogant and stupid however he did give all information that the Centauri held about the Minbari.
Despite Mollari's warning General Lefcourt decided to send a small task force to the border of Minbari space.
The expedition was led by the EAS Prometheus under the command of Captain Michael Jankowski. The task force unexpectedly encountered three Minbari warships, one of which contained the Grey Council.
Jankowski initially refused to jump back into hyperspace , preferring to wait to the last moment so they could get as much information on the Minbari ships as possible.
By the time Jankowski decided to jump the Earth ship's jump engines had been accidentally disabled by the Minbari.
He then misinterpreted the meaning of the Minbari ships opening their gunports and panicked, ordering his ships to open fire. When the Minbari leader Dukhat was killed it led to the opening of hostilities between the Minbari and the Earth Alliance.
Following this General Lefcourt and General Fontaine appear to lead EarthForce's losing effort against the Minbari. The pair are shown briefing EarthForce personnel after the initial Minbari attacks and again later when they show replays of Commander John Sheridan's victory over the Minbari flagship the Drala Fi'.
Following this he gives Sheridan and Dr Stephen Franklin a mission to meet with a Minbari representative on a neutral planet to discuss peace.
He tells Sheridan in no uncertain terms that if the Minbari want Earth's surrender then he is to give them it, to ensure the survival of the human race.
Thirteen years after the end of the Earth-Minbari war the Earth Alliance had slipped into civil war with the now Captain John Sheridan leading a rebellion against the authoritarian regime of Earth Alliance President, Morgan Clark.
Sheridan's fleet manages to overcome all EarthForce resistance before mounting an attack on the Sol System. General Lefcourt is selected by Clark to command a fleet of 35 Omega class destroyers who make their stand at Mars.
He is selected not because of any particular loyalty to Clark but because of his belief that soldiers should not take up arms against their own government no matter the cause.
Sheridan was also a pupil of his at the EarthForce academy and it was thought that he would know his tactics best. Taking command of the EAS Apollo he dismissed the ground attacks by the Mars resistance and a single White Star commanded by Marcus Cole as a diversion and refused to allow his fleet to turn back to take them on.
Minutes later most of Lefcourt's fleet is disabled by Shadow altered telepaths and the rest are put out of action by Sheridan's White Star fleet.
Security aboard the Apollo soon find and eliminate the telepath onboard but the ship remains adrift. General Lefcourt threatens the engineering crew to get the ship under control and when they finally manage to do so he orders them to Earth in pursuit of Sheridan's fleet.
The Apollo made a timely arrival, and President Clark - in a final vindictive act before committing suicide - had ordered the planetary defence grid to fire on Earth.
Sheridan's fleet managed to destroy all the platforms except one. With it about to fire on the North American seaboard, the EAS Agamemnon under Captain Sheridan's command was the only ship in range able to destroy it.
The Agamemnon' s weapon systems were inoperative, however, and Sheridan ordered the Agamemnon to ram the platform.
Seconds before it would have. Jack was Michael Garibaldi 's aide Macaulay Bruton , who also portrays the character Tragedy in Season One " Eyes " , a recurring character in Seasons One and Two of Babylon 5.
He is both implicated in, and explicitly involved in, events that lead to the death of Earth Alliance President Luis Santiago , and the "coming darkness.
Perhaps most powerfully, he shoots Garibaldi in the back at the end of Season One " Chrysalis " , preventing Garibaldi from warning Sinclair in time about the assassination attempt on Santiago, resulting in it being successful.
In the Season Two episode " Revelations ", Garibaldi regains consciousness, and with the help of Talia Winters , Talia helps Garibaldi telepathically retrieve his memory of being shot, and sees Jack's reflection in a mirror.
Enroute to Earth, the transport carrying Jack and all of the evidence regarding Garibaldi's attempted murder, is intercepted by a second unknown EarthForce transport later found out to have been sent by President Clark's agents and taken away to safety; his ultimate fate is unknown.
Susanna Luchenko Beata Pozniak becomes the President of the Earth Alliance following the overthrow and suicide of President Morgan Clark; Clark had assumed dictatorial powers.
She plays a key role in ending Clark's oppressive policies, including ending his martial law decree, and restoring democracy to the Earth Alliance.
Luchenko had previously represented the Russian Consortium in the Earth Senate. When she became President of the Earth Alliance, she appealed to the people of the Alliance to remain calm, and not to resort to committing acts of revenge against members of Clark's regime.
She asked that people "listen to the better angels of their nature. When it was learned that the Drakh were preparing to destroy Earth, Captain Elizabeth Lochley of Babylon 5 convinced Luchenko to send a large fleet to confront the Drakh.
Even though the Shadow planet killer the Drakh brought to destroy Earth was itself destroyed, the Drakh were able to successfully seed Earth's atmosphere with biological weapons.
The weapons would kill every living thing on Earth in five years. Sheridan offered his support, and the full resources of the Interstellar Alliance to help combat the Drakh plague.
At some point within the next few years the Excalibur was able to find a cure for the plague. Her only appearance is in the fourth season episode " Rising Star ", although her name is mentioned in a number of fifth season episodes.
Doctor Benjamin Kyle was portrayed by Johnny Sekka. His only appearance was in the Babylon 5 pilot movie The Gathering.
Kyle was a xenobiologist who was chosen by Commander Jeffrey Sinclair for assignment to Babylon 5 in He was given responsibility for Babylon 5 medical department and labs.Die Centauri gerieten unter den Einfluss der Schatten, was beinahe zur totalen Vernichtung geführt hätte, gehörten zu den.
