In The Beginning

(Note: This episode is set immediately before Londo encounters Sheridan, when the latter was thrown into the future in War Without End.)

The Earth-Minbari War is recounted by an aged Emperor Mollari while his capital city burns around him. Events during the war set in motion a train of events that would last down to his own time, and a thousand years into the past.

River Of Souls

(Note: This feature is set approximately six months after President Sheridan's departure for Minbar, as shown in the episode Objects At Rest.)

Garibaldi, as the new corporate head of Edgars Industries, is still sorting through a maze of the highly secret operations that William Edgars had set up. He arrives on Babylon 5 to meet Doctor Robert Bryson, who is on a mission to discover a means of extending human life indefinitely, but who comes across as a desperate crank. But Bryson really has made a discovery: one of the hidden galleries of the Soul Hunters, a place where their captured souls are placed together so that they might intermingle with each other. Unfortunately, for one race mistakenly captured whole at the moment of its evolution into a new form, this has not been enough, and over 10,000 years many of them have gone mad. Now they find release on B5, and the Soul Hunters gather en masse to recapture them, or destroy the station in the process.

A Call To Arms

(Note: This episode is set six years after the Shadow War and serves as an introduction for the sequel series Crusade.)

Things have quietened down for InterStellar Alliance President John Sheridan. He and Garibaldi inspect the new ships being built by the ISA. The vessels Victory and Excalibur are a combination of human technology and reverse-engineered Minbari and Vorlon technologies. Meanwhile, the young Technomage, Galen, takes a step that might lead to his expulsion from his people. He knows what no one else does: that the Drakh are planning to punish Earth for being at the forefront of the Shadows' defeat, but his warning is a subtle one. When Sheridan expects to view a message from his wife, he instead finds himself caught by this warning. He, a thief, and Captain Anderson of the Charon come to Babylon 5 without really knowing why, and only one thing binds them together: they have all received a dream that warns them of Earth's impending doom. But what can a thief, a president, and a destroyer captain do, when the enemy has defeated them every time?
