A map of Babylon 5
The "front" part of the leading sphere has the bay entry opening
into the station's axis. It is flanked by two observation domes
(the two "bridges")
The Docking bay is a ringlike section around the equator of the
leading sphere. Ships enter through the axis of the sphere and
are "lowered" down into an empty slot in the bay.
The Cobra bays are on the three struts supporting the leading
The Med lab is a sphere shaped area snug against Blue Section.
The other sections are shaped like rings.
Blue section: Political officialdom.
Red section: Business. (I hazard a guess that the Zocalo is
located here, but am uncertain)
Green section: Ambassadorial accommodations.
Grey section: Exotic alien environments; industrial areas.
Brown section: Slums and brothels.
The Garden is the hollow cylindrical area with hydroponic gardens.
One often sees this in the open-air luxury restaurants.
The Core Shuttle runs down the station's axis.
