Standing on Babylon 5’s observation deck, staring out at a sea of stars breathtaking in its immensity, was an awe-inspiring experience but also oddly humbling. Massive though it was, the space station was no more than a tiny, insignificant speck in the emptiness of space, refuge for a quarter of a million living beings, shielding them from the vacuum outside in which none of them could survive.
Out there, orbiting the stars, were countless planets, races, cultures, but here they could come together on neutral ground, get to know and understand each other, and hopefully learn to live in peace.
