Here are the seven reasons why I believe Babylon 5 is a femininst television show:
- Delenn of Minbar is the ambassador for Minbar on Babylon 5. She is a wise compassionate leader.
- Delenn becomes a human/Minbar hybrid so she can bridge the gap between the two species.
- The Minbar ambassador is quite funny, which aids in her relationships on board Babylon 5.
- Commander Susan Ivanova is the first officer on Babylon 5 and second in command of the space station. She is a tough cookie because of her rough upbringing. Susan’s mother committed suicide because she was the first telepath to refuse to join Psi Corps.
- Commander Susan Ivanova is not just a skilled leader, but a low grade telepath.
- Susan Ivanova and Talia Winters who is a telepath have a romantic relationship.Babylon 5 has some Lesbian subtext.
- All the main characters who have telepathic abilities are women on the show Babylon 5.
