Product Description

X-Wing Miniatures Game scale

About the MinbariThe Minbari are a fictional [u]alien[/u] [u]race[/u] featured in the television show [u]Babylon 5[/u]. The Minbari characters of [u]Delenn[/u] and [u]Lennier[/u] figure prominently throughout the series; [u]Neroon[/u], [u]Draal[/u], and [u]Dukhat[/u] are less prominent Minbari characters.

The [u]fictional planet[/u] of Minbar is the homeworld of the Minbari race. The planet and race were named by Babylon 5 creator [u]J. Michael Straczynski[/u] after the [u]Islamic[/u] pulpit known as a [u]minbar[/u].

They use base-eleven mathematics but also place a great emphasis on the number three. They are arguably the most enigmatic of the "younger races" and generally prefer a more isolationist way of life, in fact, in the made-for-TV film [u]In The Beginning[/u] the Centauri Ambassador Londo Mollari warns the Humans against provoking them for that very reason (a warning they ignored, ultimately leading Earth to almost complete annihilation in the [u]Earth–Minbari War[/u]). Although the Minbari are considerably younger than the ancient [u]First Ones[/u], they are among the oldest of the "younger races". The Minbari are more advanced in terms of technology than the [u]humans[/u]. During the time-frame in which most Babylon 5 episodes are set, Earth warships and fighters (such as the [u]Omega[/u] destroyers) are shown to be inferior in speed, maneuverability, and firepower to Minbari warcruisers and fighters.

About Babylon 5

Set between the years 2257 and 2262, it depicts a future where Earth has sovereign states, and a unifying Earth government. Colonies within the solar system, and beyond, make up the Earth Alliance, and contact has been made with other spacefaring species. The ensemble cast portray alien ambassadorial staff and humans assigned to the 5-mile (8.0 km)-long Babylon 5 space station, a center for trade and diplomacy. Described as "one of the most complex programs on television", the various story arcs drew upon the prophesies, religious zealotry, racial tensions, social pressures, and political rivalries which existed within each of their cultures, to create a contextual framework for the motivations and consequences of the protagonists' actions. With a strong emphasis on character development set against a backdrop of conflicting ideologies on multiple levels, Straczynski wanted "to take an adult approach to SF, and attempt to do for television SF what Hill Street Blues did for cop shows.
