TNT 1999

Crusade is an American spin-off TV show from J. Michael Straczynski's Babylon 5. Its plot is set in AD 2267, five years after the events of Babylon 5, and just after the movie A Call to Arms. The Drakh have released a nanovirus plague on Earth, which will destroy all life on Earth within five years if it is not stopped. To that end, the Victory class destroyer Excalibur has been sent out to look for anything that could help the search for a cure.

    If the premise of the show was to find a cure to a plague of nano-viruses within five years or all mammalian life on earth would die, and the series was canceled after a season, it is safe to say that the resolution of the story was that all mammalian life on earth met their demise since no cure was ever found. Earth was a pretty nice planet, too. Such a shame. ;)


    In many ways this is a kind-of "Star Trek" show, but with an overall "more logic" mission that make every planet exploration necessary in order to find a possible cure. With a cast of genre favorites it is sad this series never really stood a chance. Troubled from the start with TNT executives tampering with both the show and it's editing which changed the impact of the series. The lack of good music and dodgy effects also didn't help it. That the story also takes place during a time of already known "Babylon 5" history also made the outcome predictable as we already had seen "everything" in that series final episode. In a way the series was an unwanted child from the start as TNT was more into wrestling and reality programming and fans probably had been a little fed up with B5 too (even I was after that terrible season 5) but at the time I found this one to be a refreshing spaceship-bound series that had potential to it that never was really explored. As it stands it is 13 episodes with some interesting episodes and-a-lot-of-misses and mistakes as it tried to create something unique and special.


    Best viewing order is : War Zone, The Long Road, Ruling from the Tomb, Appearances and other Deceits, The Memory of War, The Needs of Earth, Racing the Night, Visitors from Down the Street, Each Night I Dream of Home, The Path of Sorrows, Patterns of the Soul, The Well of Forever and The Rules of the Game


    I don't remember if I watched all of these or not...will have to go back and watch the DVD again to see...

    About Me

    I am Sophie and this is my website.

    A little about me ๐Ÿ‘‹ I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

    But more than anything else, I love watching (.. bingingโ€ฆ) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter ๐Ÿ™ˆ

    I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I donโ€™t feel like watching it all over againโ€ฆ

    I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

    Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
