Yes, you’re reading that headline correctly. Babylon 5 is finally getting a Blu-ray release. The classic sci-fi TV series is celebrating its 30th anniversary, and Warner Bros. Home Entertainment is releasing the series on Blu-ray on December 5th. All 110 episodes will be fully remastered in HD.

If you don’t know, Babylon 5 is an American space opera television series created by writer and producer J. Michael Straczynski that ran for five seasons from 1994-1998. It actually made its debut with the 1993 pilot film The Gathering. It’s a future history story covering the years 2257-2262, with each year corresponding to a season. The series used the five-year arc for a TV program excellently, and was one of the first to popularize the storytelling structure.

The series stars Bruce Boxleitner, Michael O’Hare, Claudia Christian, Jerry Doyle, Mira Furlan, Andreas Katsulas, Peter Jurasik, Richard Biggs, Andrea Thompson, Stephen Furst, Bill Mumy, Tracy Scoggins, Jason Carter, Robert Rusler, Jeff Conaway, Patricia Tallman, and Mary Kay Adams.

2258 CE. Five hostile federations dominate the outermost regions of space. Heroes, thieves, and rare and exotic beings find refuge in this time of uneasy peace and the constant threat of war on a lone space station — the last and best hope for peace between a hundred worlds, alien and human alike — Babylon 5
