Transient

Epsilon Eridani Star System - Babylon 5
The titular space station is set orbiting the very real Epsilon Eridani Star System. This space opera was unique in that it was written as a singular plot over 5 years before shooting ever commenced.

Transient

Space City Sigma - Space City Sigma 
Back in 1989, Space City Sigma marked Indian television's first foray into Science-Fiction. The inspiration was obviously Star Trek but instead of making a straight copy, it makers came up with 'Sci-Fi Soap-Opera'. Unlike Star Trek, Sigma had a villain and the story, each episode was woven around 'Good vs Bad'.

Transient

Another connection to Babylon 5, the terrifying Psi Corp, police of all telepaths in the B5 universe. Walter Koenig leads the powerful Corp in an incredible role beyond his Star Trek career.
