Babylon 5 Episode Order

babylon 5 timeline banner art

One of the great peers of Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica, Stargate, and the like is Babylon 5. Though it hasn’t progressed much as a franchise since the early 2000s, it still remains a beloved science fiction television show.

What’s on the Babylon 5 Episode Timeline?

This is the unofficial Babylon 5 episode timeline that also includes the books, comics, and spin-off shows. The creator doesn’t consider all of the media to be canon, but much of it is. So we include all of the books and comics that are canon on this timeline in chronological order. In some cases, the comics or books take place between individual episodes. However, we thought it would be better to read those after the season is over. We thought that would make a more easy-to-follow list.

If you see anything that should be changed, added, or removed, please let us know. You can do this on our contact page. Or, if you liked this timeline, be sure to check out some of the others, like the Star Trek timeline.

Where to start watching Babylon 5?

Generally speaking, the best place to start is with the show itself, even though some of the films technically take place first. This timeline assembles it all chronologically, but it started with the show. Therefore, that is usually the best place to start.
