"If you value your lives, be somewhere else."

One of the memorable quotes from Babylon 5--a series which I very much enjoyed, even more so in reruns and DVD.

The video clip with this blog's title quote occurs right after a major space battle where the space station Babylon 5 has been heavily damaged and more enemy destroyers (Earth Fleet Ships under the corrupt President Clark) have arrived to finish the job. The background music works to make the scene even better.

The special effects were top notch for their time--and remain respectable by today's standards. If you're interested, below is a link to the highlights of the battle that preceded Delen's quote.

Civil War has broken out, Babylon 5 stands with two Earth Destroyers, opposing President Clark's forces: Battle from Severed Dreams.

What I really enjoyed about B5 was the character development and the solid story arc, elements weak or lacking in so many other SF series.
