Babylon 5 Has Nine Lives

And it's only on number six. The cult sci-fi series continues its never-ending journey on July 31 with the release of Babylon 5: The Lost Tales, a made-for-video (video? What century is this?) movie starring the happy-to-be-employed Bruce Boxleitner, Tracy Scoggins and Peter Woodward. Set in 2271 on a spiffy Earth Alliance space station, the film follows the adventures of John Sheridan and crew as they try to keep the peace among various alien races. Hmmm, are they sure this film is set in the future? Sounds awfully current. —Reporting by Raven Snook read more

Premise: One of the more ambitious sci-fi series, this meticulously plotted drama is set in the 23rd century on a space station where the Babylon 5 crew try to keep the peace. And what a job! Some 250,000 beings from many worlds live there. The compelling and complex saga spawned hundreds of Web sites and counted NASA engineers among its fans. And when its end came, cast member Bill Mumy invoked another cult favorite, the Grateful Dead: 'What a long, strange trip it's been.'
