The Monstrous Movie Clip Of The Day: "You Are In Front Of Me. If You Value Your Lives, Be Somewhere Else! "

Written By: Ken Hulsey

There were plenty of great sci fi and fantasy television shows in the 1990s including the "The X-Files", "Xena: Warrior Princess" and an seemingly endless parade of programs with the word "Trek" in the title. The one show that stood out amongst all of these top-notch programs was J. Michael Straczynski's five-year space war saga "Babylon 5". Many critics at the time took the show lightly but Straczynski's strong character driven stories kept me glued to my set episode after episode.

Yes ... "Babylon 5" was my sci fi soap opera.

Today's clip features one of the shows most dramatic and down right awesome scenes from the episode "Severed Dreams". To set things up for you if you never watched the show the space station Babylon 5 has broken away from the Earth Alliance because of attacks on Mars civilians ... okay the story is really too complicated to get into here, just understand that B5 has declared it's independence and a fleet of Earth Alliance cruisers have come to take the station back by force. There is an intense space battle in which the Earth forces overpower the fleet protecting the station, then just when everything seems lost Ambassador Delenn of the Minbari swoops in with her fleet to save the day!

"Only one human captain has ever survived battle with a Minbari Fleet. He is behind me. You are in front of me. If you value your lives, be somewhere else!"

Needless to say the Minbari are bad ass mofos and the Earth ships were wise to turn tale and run for home! If you followed the series then you know that fair skinned ones with a massive bone structure protruding out of the back of their skulsl kicked the crap out of us in war several years prior. In fact they almost brought our race to extinction but stopped just short of erasing us off the map.

Again ... a long and complicated story!

Are you keeping up? Okay maybe only a fan of the show can appreciate just how cool this scene was.

Trust me .... it's so friggin cool!

To put some perspective on this sequence watch the entire battle below:
