The Great War
The Babylon Project was our last best hope for peace. It failed. The year is 2261. War has broken out between the ancient and powerful Shadow and Vorlon races. Like two giants fighting in a sandbox, neither side seems to care who gets crushed in-between them...
The Collectable Card Game brings to life all the action, combat and heroism portrayed in the climactic episodes of the Hugo award winning television series. As the leader of the Non-Aligned Worlds, YOU will set the agenda for many powerful races, including the Drazi, Pak'ma'ra, and Vree. Together these races now play a pivotal role in the balance of galactic power. Your strengths are in numbers and in the diversity of your characters and resources. Even your starting faction leader is a matter of choice between several characters---each with unique abilities.
Babylon 5 is the nexus. Around it the Great War is about to be fought. Whatever happens next, YOUR actions will decide the outcome.
