American Science Fiction TV: Star Trek, Stargate, and Beyond - Jan Johnson-Smith After reading in other reviews that this book is predominately focused on Babylon 5 (even though the title would suggest otherwise), my favourite tv-show of all time, how could I resist not picking it up?

The first couple of chapters are very academic in nature and can be a bit tiresome to read, but once Johnson-Smith gets started on her main case studies (mainly Star Trek, Space Above and Beyond and most notably Babylon 5), then her narrative picks up and it becomes an engaging read.

Definitely an interesting ready for any science fiction fan.
