    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-Evans).But In the Beginning is surprisingly well-written. It was shot in the dark for me, quite 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 $2.95). [...]

    From the screenplay by J Michael Straczynski. Everything the ardent Babylon 5 fan could want. An Earth ship sent to investigate the Minbari fires on the Grey Council's ship and starts a war. The Minbari want to wipe out all humans until they find out humans have Minbari souls. They never reveal why they surrendered.

    While Peter David writes copiously, he does get the heart of most material he attempts. This was successful in this case. He obtains and holds the voice of the Actor who held the character of Londo Mollari and danced a delightful part on the deck of a mythical space station far in the future of an earth that we can only dream at. This book is as all good Science Fiction is - we are taken to places, people and situations that illuminate how we might react if we ourselves were at that place and at [...]

    by Peter David, published in 1998.Babylon 5, our last best chance for peace . . . But, how did the building of the Babylon stations come to be? Well, sit right back and sink your mind into “In The Beginning” and let Londo Mollari, aging Emperor and confidant, tell you all about it.If you enjoy great science fiction and you have not already watched the five television seasons of Babylon 5, stop reading this, go buy them now and enjoy. Truly one of TV’s greats and not to be missed.This novel [...]

    No matter how hard he tries, Peter David can't elminiate the "same old/same old" feel of JMS's first TV movie script. That said, he certainly milks all the inherent gravitas and tragedy available to him. Overall, it's much more effective than the TV version.

    An incredible novel, which fleshes out the incredible Babylon 5 movie. We see the events preceeding the construction of Babylon 5 through the eyes of an aging and bitter Emperor Mollari. Fans of the movie should make this a must-read.

    I love this book. Absolutely love it, and the tv movie it is based upon. Peter David did a fantastic job in Londo's voice telling the pre-history of Babylon 5. Have read this multiple times.
