'Crusade' picks up the torch from where its illustrious award-winning predecessor 'Babylon 5' left off. Written and produced by 'Babylon 5' creator Michael J. Straczynski, 'Crusade' begins in the late 23rd century, as humanity defeats the evil Shadow race. But its allies remain - and they swear revenge. When the mysterious, hateful Drakh unleash a deadly biogenetic plague on Earth, mankind faces its demise within five years unless the Rangers, an elite army of light forged during civilisation's darkest hours, can find a cure...

Now, in a ceaseless battle against time and the dangers of deep space, the Rangers aboard the advanced prototype starship Excalibur boldly pursue their mission: to find a cure for the plague and to destroy the Drakh and their alien allies. Diplomacy and negotiation mean nothing. With 7 billion lives at stake, action and courage against insurmountable odds must prevail in this crusade. Political intrigue, challenging philosophical ideals and hilarious comedy blend with the high-octane action and spine-tingling drama expected in a sci-fi saga of Babylon 5's epic nature!

'Crusade' features some of the best loved key characters from 'Babylon 5' including Captain Elizabeth Lochley (Tracy Scoggins) and Doctor Franklin (Richard Biggs), alongside many new crew members headed by Matthew Gideon (Gary Cole).

 okay spin off

As a standalone series in the babylon 5 universe, its okay, effects are on a par with the rest of Babylon 5, stories are not on a par with aforementioned series... some good episodes, some really bad... but the only lingering feeling it leaves you with, is this should have been much much better

 Great

Another great B5 spin off that was unfortunately not picked up. Like Legend of the Rangers to just did not same to have the atmosphere that gave B5 it appeal.

 Devalued before it was made.

I remember when it was first planned. In the sci fi mags, they showed the original designs which were superior BUT.. then the dreaded budget cuts.. oh dear. SO.. what should have been a worthy follow up to Babylon 5.. wasdowngraded to a one series cheaper looking sci fi.. yes, spin off, that should have been much better. Shame, I enjoyed it, but those used to the superior Babylon 5.. which itself was nearly terminated before time if anyone remembers. When I read about the follow up films to be on dvd, with limited known cast... I`ve yet to see one. Bab 5 WAS my all time favourite of all the sci fi series. Politics in space. Oh, too true and made one realise.. how history CAN and is changed for whoever is in power. One episode was from the future looking back at the anti governmental `rebels`.. Maybe thats another reason Michael lost it.
