    I'm pressed for time, but three I love right off the top of my head are "Ship of Tears," "Dust to Dust," and "A Late Delivery from Avalon." Oh, and "The Parliament of Dreams." Four, I meant to say. Wait a sec, there's also G'Kar's epilogue at the end of Season 3, so I have to add "Z'ha'dum." Five, really.

    Since this was really painful to begin with, I selected chronological order rather than blowing out neurons trying to arrange them in an absolute order of preference.

    The Parliament of Dreams
    The Coming of Shadows
    And now for a Word
    Dust to Dust
    Severed Dreams
    A Late Delivery from Avalon
    The Long Night
    And the Rock Cried Out No Hiding Place
    The Fall of Centauri Prime
    Sleeping in Light

    Since the question was favorite episodes, I interpreted that to mean entire episodes, so, as an example, even though I absolutely love the Londo story of "Knives" the Sheridan story wasn't that compelling for me and the episode dropped from consideration. That actually helped! I can't imagine narrow it down to my 10 favorite stories!

    Based on recent viewings.....

    1. Passing through Gethsemene
    2. Comes the Inquisitor
    3. Whatever happened to Mr Garibaldi?
    4. Confesions and Lamentations
    5. Endgame
    6. Sleeping in Light
    7. The Fall of Centauri Prime
    8. Interludes & examinations
    9. And the rock cried out ' no hiding place '
    10 . Signs and Portents.

    Then again if this question pops up again in a years time then it will probably have changed.

    Such is the quality of the show.....

    I couldn't possible do 10, but here's afew off the top of my head (As it were)
    A view from the gallery (just love the off-format stuff, I'm with you Jan)
    Sil (I mean duh)
    Believers (so much non-star-trek that this was the pooint I decided I must have the whole series on DVVd, now)
    The longnight of Londo Mollari (wonderfuly arcy)
    sh*t gonna have to wander off to the lurkers guide for this one but the Niel Gaiman ep in S5 (got it Day of the Dead) just love the way it reveals aspects of each characters past, even got me to like lochley
    WWe part I & II (if only for the londo hokey cokey stuff and the ivanova is god quotes.
    Racing Mars (the interaction between Steven and Marcus is just great
    Paragon of animals (because G'kar reading the DoP melts me every time
    <edit, hmm there's 9 there, I'm sure I can make it ten. OK can't remeber the ep title but the one where Talia is reavealed to be a psi-corps spy.
    That's all
    bear in mind I;m naming eps from memory so may have got a few (Neil Gaiman aside) title wrong, I'm open to correction which is why I put the details in.

    Top 10? Are you sure you didn't miss a key? Maybe you meant Top 110?
    Sorry, I value my sanity too highly to even attempt to list all the episodes in order of preference. However, here is today's top 10 - tomorrow's would likely be different - in no particular order:

    Severed Dreams
    Interludes and Examinations
    Confessions and Lamentations
    The Coming of Shadows
    Sleeping in Light
    Intersections in Real Time
    The Long, Twilight Struggle
    Babylon Squared
    The Fall of Centauri Prime
    And The Sky Full Of Stars

    Cheers,

    I'm not absolutely sure, Shabaz. As you can see from my list, I'm very fond of the off-format episodes-that's part of it. The chemistry between the actors who played Mack and Bo was wonderful, too. The story Stephen told about how an alien doctor had saved his Dad, the growing feud between Lochley and Garibaldi, Delenn's gentleness and determination to stay on the station...it all just adds up for me. And then there's that silly floor machine...

    In a different way from 'Deconstruction of Falling Stars', this episode is a series of small character stories, not a lot of heavy arc but you learn a lot about the new folks on the station and a little more about the characters we already thought we knew well.

    Thank you for your answer.

    Yeah, I quite like the off format episodes too. And, with a show that is intentionally focused on the political decision makers, I really liked seeing the working man side to the Babylon 5 space station. Makes the place feel more real, you know? I really liked by Any Means Necessary for the same reason. It made the station feel more real, and less of an idealized place than, for instance, the Trek universe.

    Those mystery red helmeted aliens in A View from the Gallery looked a bit silly, though.

    i agree with you here jan, while a veiw from the gallirey is not on my top 10 it does deserve an honorable mention. personally i think it was a brillant concept and i really wish some other shows would do something similar, plus it makes us imagine the story going on around it by inference, it was so well done that you can hear the story behind it without needing to see it
