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 is a port of call, a home away from home for diplomats, hustlers, entrepreneurs and wanderers.
