by Denise Chochrek

Welcome to the ongoing gathering of Babylon 5 fans on the Aphelion. In the months ahead I hope to expand this area, but I will need your help. Let me know what you like or dislike, what is missing, and what you always wanted to know. Together I'm sure we will make this a great place to visit.
