English Summary:

Babylon 5 is an American space opera television series created by writer and producer J. Michael Straczynski, under the Babylonian Productions label, in association with Straczynski's Synthetic Worlds Ltd. and Warner Bros. Domestic Television. After the successful airing of a test pilot movie on February 22, 1993, Babylon 5: The Gathering, in May 1993 Warner Bros. commissioned the series for production as part of its Prime Time Entertainment Network (PTEN).[1] The show premiered in the US on January 26, 1994, and ran for five seasons.

Babylon 5, set primarily between the years 2257 and 2262, depicts a future where Earth has a unifying Earth government and has gained the technology for faster-than-light travel. Colonies within the solar system, and beyond, make up the Earth Alliance, which has established contact with other spacefaring species. Ten years before the series is set, Earth itself was nearly defeated in a war with the spiritual Minbari, only to escape destruction when the Minbari unexpectedly surrendered at the brink of victory; since then, Earth has established peaceful relationships with them.

Among the other species are the imperialist Centauri; the Narn, who only recently gained independence from the Centauri empire; and the mysterious, powerful Vorlons. Several dozen less powerful species from the League of Non-Aligned Worlds also have diplomatic contact with the major races, including the Drazi, Brakiri, Vree, Markab, and pak'ma'ra. An ancient and secretive race, the Shadows, unknown to humans but documented in many other races' religious texts, malevolently influence events to bring chaos and war among the known species.

 

French Summary:

En 2258, 10 ans après la guerre entre l'Alliance Terrienne et la Fédération Minbarie, le Commandant Jeffrey Sinclair, puis le Capitaine John Sheridan, prennent successivement le commandement d'une station spatiale diplomatique appelée Babylon 5. Située dans une zone neutre de l'espace, elle accueille les représentants des différentes races composant la communauté galactique et regroupe — au sein d'un Conseil décidé à maintenir la paix et la prospérité dans la galaxie — les ambassadeurs des principales puissances galactiques:

  • L'Alliance Terrienne (qui commande la station Babylon 5)
  • La Fédération Minbarie
  • La République Cantaurie
  • Le Régime Narn
  • L'Empire Vorlon
  • La Ligue des Mondes Non-Alignés, qui regroupe une série de puissances de moindre importances ayant décidé de travailler ensemble pour obtenir plus de poids dans la politique galactique.

Mais la mission de Sinclair, puis celle de Sheridan, s'avère particulièrement difficile à cause des conflits entre les différentes races (les Centauris (en) contre les Narns (en)) et des dissensions internes (chez les Minbaris et aussi sur Terre). Petit à petit, des indices semblent prouver l'existence d'une antique race aux desseins destructeurs, les Ombres.
