Yes, it can be frustrating at times.  Good job getting it going.

[ Ambassador Londo Mollari's opening narrative, "The Gathering"]
    "I was there at the dawn of the Third Age of Mankind. It began in the
Earth year 2257 with the founding of the last of the Babylon stations,
located deep in neutral space.
    It was a port of call for refugees, smugglers, businessmen, diplomats
and travelers from a hundred worlds. It could be a dangerous place, but
we accepted the risk because Babylon 5 was our last, best hope for peace.
    Under the leadership of its final commander, Babylon 5 was a dream given
form, a dream of a galaxy without war, when species from different worlds
could live side-by-side in mutual respect, a dream that was endangered as
never before by the arrival of one man on a mission of destruction.
    Babylon 5 was the last of the Babylon stations. This is its story."
