In Babylon 5, series creator J Michael Straczynski had a defined story he wished to tell. It was to span five seasons of 22 episodes each and was set in stone to cover a very specific story arc. Because of this long-term approach, B5 emerged as one of the most structured and rich sci-fi shows that had ever aired, one that never rambled and always had a clear destination in mind. The plan did come undone, though, when the threat of cancellation forced Straczynski to move events up in season four, which subsequently left him with less to do in the final year when the show was ultimately renewed. Best laid plans and all that.
