In the Beginning Babylon 5The Battle of the Line is infamous in Earth history as the climactic campaign in a long and bloody war between Humankind and the alien Minbari race But how did this apocalyptic conflict erupt And how did this fateful clash of two civilizations ultimately lead to the creation of the Babylon. I'm not a Peter David fan Oh I've read a few of his books but I consider him to be a workmanlike author rather than an artist Of course I also consider him to be a newcomer since I respect very few post 1980 authors exactly three in fact Brust Brin and Watt EvansBut In the Beginning is surprisingly well written It was shot in the dark for me uite literally; I don't remember where I'd originally picked it up but I'm sure I didn't buy it new the pencil marking inside says 295 It was late at night I desperately needed something to read and I'd just turned off the light in the den; it was pitch black So for a lark I pushed aside the books in the outer layer of one of my bookshelves I'm terribly short of shelf space and pulled out a book at random from the row of books behindNow I must admit up front that I was a big fan of Babylon 5 In fact it was the last show that I would call myself a fan of; I think I got too old for the fan phenomenon after that But from seasons 1 4 I was a big fan and even wrote a one shot zine for a Babylon 5 APA amateur press association a collection of zines on a topicAnyway I have to say that Peter David captured the voice of the narrator Londo Mollari extremely well I could hear the voice just as Peter Jurasik performed it while I was reading it I don't know if someone who isn't familiar with the show itself would get the same enjoyment out of the book thereforeIn any case I'd call it a successful novelization; it captured the plot and essence of the broadcast show extremely well There was only one jarring note On page 75 there's a lineIndeed the gravity on the Babylon 5 space station was achieved entirely through a steady rotation the same as that on any planetPerhaps Peter David only meant to say that planets have a steady rotation but it certainly seems as if he's saying that centrifugal or is it centripetal force is the source of gravitation on planets and of course that's absolutely wrong If planetary gravity was caused by rotation everything not fastened to the planetary crust would be flung into space Could a modern science fiction author really be that ignorant of basic physics I have to wonderAll in all though an enjoyable read I was tempted to give it four stars But if you're not a B5 fan you're probably likely to consider it a 3 star work I'm not sure if this link will work but if it does here's a link to that zine It has been annotated from a years later perspective
