         “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, 500 thousand tons of 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 year is 2258.  The name of the place is Babylon 5.”
  •  1:28 min 1890K [WAV] - Season 2 introduction
         “The Babylon Project was our last, best hope for peace.
          A self-contained world 5 miles long, located in neutral territory.
          A place of commerce and diplomacy for a quarter of a million humans and aliens.
          A shining beacon in space--all alone in the night.
          It was the dawn of the third age of mankind,
          the year the great war came upon us all.
          This is the story of the last of the Babylon stations.
          The year is 2259.  The name of the place is Babylon 5.”
  •  1:28 min 1894K [WAV] - Season 3 introduction
         “The Babylon Project was our last, best hope for peace.
          It failed.
          But in the year of the shadow war, it became something greater:
          Our last, best hope… for victory.
          The year is 2260.  The place:  Babylon 5.”

         “It was the year of fire…”

         “It was the year of rebirth…”

         “It was the end of the Earth year 2261.
          and it was the dawn of a new age for all of us.
          It was the end of one chapter and the beginning of another.
          The next 20 years would see great changes.
          Great joy and great sorrow.
          The telepath war, and the Drahk war.
          The new alliance would waver and crack,
          but in the end it would hold.
          Because what is built, endures.
          And what is loved, endures.
          And Babylon 5…
          Babylon 5… endures.”
