Babylon 5 Space Station

Babylon 5 Space Station

Katase
Description
The Earth Alliance space station Babylon 5 s a modified version of an O'Neill Cylinder, revolving to provide artificial gravity. The center of the cylinder is a hollowed-out circular section, between a half and one-mile across, and includes fields, hydroponic gardens, and a transport tube which runs from one end of the station to the other. The station features a number of independent, interconnected sectors, each designed with a different look in order to give the interior a non-claustrophobic feel. Living areas are designed to accommodate the various alien species with different atmospheres and alternate levels of gravity. Human visitors to the alien sectors are often shown using breathing equipment and taking other measures in order to tolerate these conditions. The station is situated in the Epsilon Eridani binary star system, located at the fifth Lagrangian point between Epsilon III and its moon. The station's three predecessors (the original Babylon station, Babylon 2 and Babylon 3) were all sabotaged or accidetally destroyed before their completion. Babylon 4 vanished twenty-four hours after it became fully operational. The station is a combination of the United Nations and Times Square on an intergalactic scale and became a focal point for interstellar politics, diplomacy, and conflict. #Babylon_5 #Earth_Alliance #ONeill_Cylinder #Space_station #tv
