Footnotes

  1. Babylon 5: In the Beginning.
  2. “Sleeping in Light.”
  3. With some exceptions, such as the Grey Council’s cruiser.
  4. As several dozen warcruisers were seen in “In the Beginning,” at least 100 ships in service during a major war would be a conservative lower limit.
  5. Common fan estimate that is far more reasonable than on-screen figures.
  6. Babylon 5: Thirdspace.
  7. Babylon 5: In the Beginning.
