Crusade, is the highly anticipated new series from the creators of the Emmy Award- and Hugo Award-winning series Babylon 5. Gary Cole, Tracy Scoggins, Daniel Dae Kim, David A. Brooks, Marjean Holden, Carrie Dobro and Peter Woodward will head the cast of CRUSADE, which is set to launch in June 1999. Douglas Netter and series creator J. Michael Straczynski will executive-produce for Babylonian Productions.
Crusade begins after a savage attack on Earth by the Drakh, allies of the evil Shadows. Earth's humans have succeeded in defeating the alien force, but not its final revenge: a biogenetic plague that will eliminate all human life on Earth, unless a cure can be found. The White Star fleet -- led by the advanced prototype warship Excalibur -- combs the ruins of races far more advanced than humans to find the cure that will save them.
