Crusade

Show Summary

Crusade, a spin-off from the Emmy-winning Babylon 5, describes the efforts of the Interstellar Alliance vessel Excalibur to find the cure to a plague released on Earth. This plague of nano-viruses, released by the Shadow's servants, the Drakh, in retaliation for the Shadow War (see Babylon 5 season 4 for details), will kill all mammalian life on Earth within five years if the cure is not found. Unfortunately, the plug was pulled on this series after just 13 episodes, so no resolution was ever achieved.

    I CHECKED THIS OUT AT THE LIBRARY. ANOTHER SHOW WITH NO REAL ENDING. I THINK SOMEONE SHOULD START A SITE FOR US PEOPLE THAT WANT ENDINGS ON OUR FAVORITE SHOWS

    I miss Babylon 5!



    I* know many will disagee, but I miss Babylon 5 and was willing to accept almost anything. What can I say? I am devoted. I loved that show and the work of JMS.



    Yes, TNT and the suits did incredible damage to JMS's vision for "Crusade," but I can not let that keep me from wanting more.



    "Babylon 5 Legend of The Rangers" even more of a injured product. A look back at "Crusade" shows it had promise. A rerad of the unfilmed scripts shows what we missed.



    How can the world be without Babylon 5. The Shadows have won!moreless
  • It was a good show and in time and fine tuning could have been a great show

    I just bought Crusade and have watched the first 6 episodes. So far I liked it. Not as much as B-5 but it's good. I think they needed to spend more time on "The Rim" than hanging around Babylon 5. As for why the show was cancelled is anybody's guess. Whether it was ratings or the suits at Turner not really liking us "nerds." (Just like Paramount and Star Trek. The suits are embarrassed of sci fi fans but will gladly take our money.) Or maybe it was B-5 fatigue. I'll admit when Crusade was first aired I didn't watch it. I had B-5 fatigue. Now I wish they had made more especially when I watch SciFi Channel crap (more like avoid the SciFi Channel crap). Compared to that soap opera crap like Battlestar Galactica and Painkiller Models, Crusade is far superior.moreless
  • Awesome Series which is sadly gone...

    It picked off where Babylon 5 finished with the world needing a cure to save earth. A group of people must search out through the universe to find it to save earth. This series had alot of thought put into it and what I thought was good. Apparently (this is what I heard) the series was canceled because the channel that the show was being shown on wanted the next series to have lots of violence, lots of adult scenes (watch torchwood and you will know what I mean) and the writer refused, I say good on the writer. Sadly the show won't continue and how they find the cure, we will never know...moreless
  • What happened here? A great show, with a great writer, a great producer, great directing, and Turner. Opps maybe I answered the question.

    What happened here? A great show, with a great writer, a great producer, great directing, and Turner. Opps maybe I answered the question.



    This show was a great and long awaited follow-up to Babylon 5. Unfortunately the network nailed the show with poor placement, poor promotion, rearranged schedules, and meddling. It shows that the business people should stay out of creation.



    As you review the episodes you will see the finger print of the network murder of Crusade. A change in uniforms. A change in episode order. Inserted fights, characters, and T & A. Only a network can ruin a good thing.



    However, all said it is a show worth your time.moreless
