The Babylon Project was conceived and implemented by the Earth Alliance 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.
