"Commencing interweb link."
- – Computer, 2258
The Interweb is the Earth Alliance computer network. The Interweb carries an extensive range of information resources and services. Search programs could be loaded to the Interweb. Given Babylon 5's remote location, a tachyon link was necessary to establish an Interweb connection and download information from Earth, and even then it took time to download information.
Judging from its name, the Interweb may be a descendant of the Internet.
Babylon 5 is one of the first - if not the first - television series to make extensive use of the Internet. Author J. Michael Straczynski used the Internet - and still does - to keep in touch with fans and share insights and background information into the show and its creation.
