This is a tie-in movie for the Babylon 5 spin-off show, Crusade. Also, it’s the last one of these damn things I ever have to review, unless JMS starts digging up corpses to try and squeeze some more life out of and they make another B5 movie.
A servant race of the Shadows, an alien race we just beat in a war, starts making plans for revenge, but a “techno-mage” (a guy who uses technology to replicate the effects of magic) pulls three influential people together to mount a defense and save Earth from their planet-killing plague.
All in all, this isn’t terrible. It’s pretty much on the low side of Babylon 5 stories, but at least it feels like one of them, as opposed to almost every other B5 movie. It uses the techno-mages (which are dumb) and dreams and prophecies and all that dumb shit, but… I dunno, it’s an okay story.
