Footnotes

  1. The in the B5 Universe, the Victory-class is categorized as a “Heavy Destroyer,” that is a vague term that could either mean a battleship or a heavy cruiser. As the Victory-class was the largest and most powerful starship built by the Younger Races, classifying it as a battleship seems apt.
  2. “Movements of Fire and Shadow” (B5). The Victory-class was intended to supplement the smaller White Star-class in the ISA Fleet.
  3. Babylon 5: A Call to Arms.
  4. “War Zone” (Crusade).
