Project was conceived and implemented by the Earth
immediately following the Earth-Minbari War
. Its purpose was to
avoid future wars by providing a place where humans and aliens could
work out their differences peacefully and avoid future misunderstandings.
The first three attempts at building a Babylon station met with disaster as
sabotage by unknown forces who destroyed them early in their construction.
With Babylon 4, the Earth Alliance put in a big budget, and built a huge
station - only to have it disappear 24 hours after coming online. The
station was considered lost, and one final attempt to create a Babylon
station was made, on a minimal budget, funded partially by the Minbari
Federation, and the Centauri Republic - Babylon 5.
The Greatest of these, was Babylon 5
, which eventually housed the Legislative Branch
and for some time the Executive Branch
of the Interstellar Alliance
