I came across this in a google search. I designed it, a friend of mine in the B5 community modelled it, then I lit it.

We didn't win. A more Mimbari-asthetic model did. We were second place tho! :D

Thank you.  The Babylon 6 station was a fan contest back in the olden days, and most of the other ships were fan created.  All except the Warlock cruiser which was seen briefly in the 20th Anniv. video B5 Lost Tales.

This space station model, was this based on JMS' original 5-year draft for 'Babylon Prime'?

This model was fan made for a contest I believe.  I don't know if it is based on any proposed design, or if the creator just came up with it on his own.

I can't give you permission because it is not my model.  Otherwise I would say "no prob."

"I was there at the dawn of the Fourth Age of Mankind, twenty years after the Second Shadow War,more than ten years after the fall of Babylon 5.

In that year,a mysterious signal from what was apparently a previously unindentified sentient race was received....from somewhere outside our galaxy.Furthermore,excavations on long-dead worlds,combined with information taken from Shadow computers hint that this race once seeded this galaxy with life more than 6 billion years ago....and that at an appropriate time,THEY would come again. The New Babylon Project was swiftly incepted with the goal of identifying this mysterious race,to prepare for a peaceful reception and a New Golden Age-or the next Great War. The Finest minds from across the Interstellar Alliance,working together to uncover long-forgotten truths shielded by four million, eight-hundred thousand tons of spinning metal,led by EarthForce's first Minbari officer,all alone in the Eternal Night. The ancient secrets held here make this the Galaxy's most dangerous place, but it's THE last,best hope for peace,in a brand-new universe.

This is the story of what may be the Greatest of the mighty Babylon stations.


The year is 2298.

The name of the place is Babylon 6.

And who am I?

I am simply an Minbari orphan who because of her Human upbringing,finds herself where she last expected-or wanted-to be.

In the path of History...."

Very nice. The station looks like a fusion of B5 and B4! Odd, though, if they have artificial gravity, that they would keep the cylindrical station. Whatever, this is awesome!

There are several possible reasons for that, but truth to tell the concept was created when the show was still playing. [link]

With artificial gravity, they won't need a rotating station.

Hadn't thought of that. Good thing I didn't design, build or come up with the idea.

The Idea of Babylon 6 was a 3d modelling project in the early 2000's. There isn't any story (canon or otherwise)at least as far as I know.

It's still kind of cool. Not as cool as the original B5 models, but those were quite extraordinary, and so that's not surprising.

:iconarchangel72367:
archangel72367 Featured By Owner May 21, 2011  Student Digital Artist
No. Unfortunately this was in blender. And my setup skills were very limited at the time. Since then I have found these models in Lightwave (which I now use) but haven't been very B5 motivated lately. But that might change here shortly. Now that I have Lightwave 10, I was going to revisit many of my older images and "update" them. I will put this at the top of my list. :)

Babylon SIX?

Sacrilege. The Great Maker told us there would never be another after Babylon 5.

Babylon 5: The Next Generation is plausible, though - that shot of Vir and the others looking out of the window in C&C always makes me think that they could be the focal point of a whole new five year arc.

Just a concept, I didn't build the models but put them together in an image. Truth to tell this image was just an afterthought. I never thought this image would be so popular!

No this is ISA era, Post Shadow and Earth Civil War. Sometime after they scuttled B5, but before the "Great Burn."

Wow the quality on that B6 model looks much higher than the ones i'm used to seeing, be nice to get an isolated shot of it, almost looks of similar quality as the "The Lost Tales" Babylon 5.

This model was a lightwave file that I imported into blender. Long story short, it's ironic because this one has no self illumination, or not much in the way of lighting except the main. I guess less is more.

Actually the Whitestar Fleet is independant of Earthgov and Earth Alliance. They are more a part of the Anla-Shok and the ISA.
