"It was the Dawn of the Third Age of Mankind, ten years after the Earth-Minbari War. The Babylon Project was a dream given form. Its goal: to prevent another war by creating a place where humans and aliens could work out their differences peacefully. It's a port of call, home away from home for diplomats, hustlers, entrepreneurs and wanderers. Humans and aliens wrapped in two million, five hundred thousand tons of spinning metal .. all alone in the night. It can be a dangerous place, but it's our last, best hope for peace. -- This is the story of the last of the Babylon stations. The name of the place is Babylon 5."
- Commander Jeffery Sinclair, 2258

The Babylon Project began in 2248 after the resolution of the Earth-Minbari War, the war itself being the inspiration for the project's foundations. Babylons 1 through 3 were all destroyed during their construction by acts of sabotage. Finally, Babylon 4 was constructed and brought online in 2254 when it disappeared a mere twenty-four hours later. The last of the Babylon stations, Babylon 5, was constructed and placed into orbit of Epsilon III, thanks to substantial assistance from the Centauri Republic and the Minbari Federation. The station came online in 2257 and ultimately served its purpose through frequent diplomatic engagements, first contact situations, ongoing trade, and key roles in several military conflicts.

There have been three Babylon 5 RPGs.
One by Chameleon Eclectic, two editions of a D20 version, and a
Traveller version by Mongoose Publishing.
