Almost a full year after the Babylon 5 pilot, the series premiered on this day, January 26th, 1994: “Midnight on the Firing Line” (on Hulu, with commercials).
When the Narn attack a Centauri colony, Londo and G’Kar nearly come to blows. Meanwhile, raiders are attacking transport ships near the station.
Sinclair: We’ve had plenty of experience with sneak attacks. Pearl Harbor, the terrorist nuking of San Diego, the destruction of our first Mars colony. It’s a long and bloody history. Do you know what we learned from it? That the sneak attack is the first resort of a coward.
