The Babylon Project was conceived and implemented by the
Earth Alliance immediately following the Earth/Minbari War. Its purpose was
to avoid future wars by providing a place where humans and aliens could work
out their differences peacefully and avoid future misunderstandings.
The first three attempts at building a Babylon station met with disaster as sabotage by unknown forces destroyed them early in their construction. With Babylon 4, the Earth Alliance built a huge station - only to have it disappear 24 hours after coming online. The station was considered lost, and one final attempt to create a Babylon station was made, on a minimal budget, funded partially by the Minbari Federation - Babylon 5.
