2267 A.D. The battle is won, the war may be lost. After fending off the fierce attack of Drakh combatants, Earth faces an unseen yet even greater foe. The Drakhs have left behind a microbial, biogenetic plague that will destroy all life on the planet in five years if a cure isn't found. From Babylon 5 creator J. Michael Straczynski comes an exciting 13-part adventure about the race to find that cure, an urgent and hazardous quest that sends an Earthforce expedition across the reaches of space to explore technologies more advanced than Earth's. The race is on. The perils are many, and savvy, real tomorrow issues and potential technologies underlie every episode, thanks to production input from forward-looking thinkers at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory. The future begins, or ends, here!

Having been a very big fan of the original Babylon 5 series, I thought I would give this a try. The original Babylon 5 was great, had a very strong and involving storyline, and was good fun to watch. Compared to Babylon 5, this series is a bit of disappointment, the storyline seems a little on the shallow side, and not particularly engrossing. Some of the characters are a little bit cringeworthy aswell, and there are plenty of cirny lines to go around. Crusade just doesn't feel that well written.
However, it is quite entertaining and for me fits into the 'passes an evening quite nicely but don't expect too much from it' category. It is quite similar to the various Star Trek spin offs in that respect. Any real dedicated fans of Babylon 5 or Star Trek will probably love it, bu tI just found it lacking in depth.
