Each Babylon station is colored a different color. We know:

  • Babylon 1 is red, as seen in In The Beginning.
  • Babylon 4 is green, as seen in Babylon Squared and War Without End (and possibly others)
  • Babylon 5 is blue, as seen in... let me think...

What colors are Babylon 2 and 3?

  • 3
    We never saw either of them, I don't if JMS ever commented on it, but based on the order of colors for the ones we saw, I've seen several sites guess that Babylon 2 would have been orange and Babylon 3 yellow. Jun 25, 2021 at 0:27

    Do we even know if Babylons 2 and 3 got far enough along in the construction process to have had their exterior cladding applied before they were destroyed?

1 Answer 1


Obviously the first Babylon station was far enough along to be red. Also I doubt that 1 - 3 were as close to Babylon 4 as JMS implies. But submitted as an example of the only canon thing I could find on the topic. Some fan did some cool fan fiction stations once but I couldn't find those either.

"What were the designs for Babylon 1-3. Were they based on the Babylon 4 model or the Babylon 5 model? "

They were designed to eventually become what we saw in B4. None of the first 3 got much past the early stages of construction.
