WEFOUNDBabylon 5: The PSI Corps



The Psi Corps was an Earth Alliance organization, ostensibly established to help human telepaths learn how to control and use their abilities for the betterment of themselves and Humanity at large.

It is the position of the Psi Corps that telepathic humans who do not learn how to control their abilities are mostly unstable or become insane, therefore they need guidance. In addition to that, unregistered telepaths can do severe damage to society by using their abilities for criminal reasons.

Under Earth Alliance law, all human telepaths have to be registered with the Psi Corps. After that, they have three choices: Join the Psi Corps, lifetime imprisonment, or take drugs called sleepers to suppress their abilities. Most choose to work for Psi Corps, because one common side effect of the sleepers is severe depression, sometimes so severe that it often ends in the patient's suicide. [3] Unstable telepaths - such as schizophrenic ones - are locked away for " the good of everyone ". [4]

A serial killer, an alien device which gives life, and a night on the town with Londo and Lennier is just another day at the office on Babylon 5.

A number of aliens begin dying of supposedly natural causes, but Dr. Franklin figures out it's actually a plague being covered up because of a stigma around those who get it. And no, it's not the sharts.

The crisis comes to a head as the renegades comes to Babylon 5, dragging a whole bunch of Earth Force ships with it to take over the station. Things are about to get messy.
