Guest StarringEdit




An advanced civilization dead some 1000 years may hold the medical data the Excalibur crew seeks. Instead, the holographic explorer sent by Galen uncovers an ominous secret.

Episode ChronologyEdit

13 episodes of crusade were produced before TNT cancelled the series. According to posts by J. Michael Straczynski, which are archived on, TNT broadcast the episodes out of the intended sequence. The order of the episodes was then revised when they were re-broadcasted on the Sci-Fi channel, the Sci-Fi channel actually contacted Straczynski and asked which order he would prefer the episodes were broadcast. A third order was formally endorsed by Straczynski as the "true" chronological sequence of events for the filmed episodes, as it appeared in Across Time and Space: The Chronologies of Babylon 5. This particular ordering supersedes Straczynski's own "preferred" sequence from a strictly chronological and causal standpoint. The original broadcast order as set by TNT was used for the DVD releases.
