Ivanova avoids putting a bag over an alien diplomats head while having sex with him. Warning: There is no gratuitous sex in this episode – but there IS some boom shackalacka!
After the rather sedate Intersections in Real Time, this episode was delivered at break-neck speed (at least for Ivanova).
After three rip-roaring seasons, the last few episodes of season 4 were some of the best Sci Fi television produced, anywhere! this episode was no exception. Gripping!
A heartbreaking episode, magnificently acted by Claudia Christian. The rest of the cast were pretty good too!
The season finale – a forward look at how the galaxy has changed as a direct result of Sheriden and Delenns activities.
A review of the Shadow Battlecruisers, Battleships, Scoutships and Scouts
What a great episode – one of the best so far! Lots of things are coming to a head and Garibaldi suddenly learns the truth…
Hmmmm. I can’t think of much to say about this episode, especially after the last. It reminds me of the ISN episode, the one where you kept telling the show to ‘Get on with it!’ Mathew wrote loads of stuff about this episode in his review in the Lurkers Guide…
The wonderful Claudia Christian plays the very popular Commander Susan Ivanova.
The Vorlons destroy two more colonies and people on Babylon 5 are getting very worried – The local Vorlon needs to go!
One of the most popular characters in Si Fi history played by an actor that confessed he was a “Mick from Brooklyn playing a Wop from Mars.”
Things are hotting up in the final push towards confrontation with the Shadows. but Sheridan needs to make a sacrifice or two…
G’Kar is a wonderful character. and played magnificently by Andreas Katsulas). This is a short bio of the character.
What it’s all been about! Finally, the big confrontation, the story of the resolution of the Vorlon and Shadow conflict – wadda cracker!
The magnificent Tracy Scoggins plays Captain Elizabeth Lockley. This is her brief bio.
Except for the partying, everything seems to be calming down. on Centauri Prime, Londo is preparing to continue his ambassadorship on Babylon 5 when he finds out that the ‘Centaurum’ have elected to name him Regent…
The story of Byron and the Telepaths was an annoyance as far as I’m concerned. His wasn’t a popular character, excepting among the lady viewers.
There is a necessary evil Babylon 5 cant do without. This episode is about how Sheridan and Delenn embrace it to get some information they need.
Some of the best Babylon 5 people to invite to your party. These guys know what to do in every respect!
Delenn succumbs to a silly Minbari ritual – the Dreaming. But learns lots from the ordeal.
The Minbari look exactly like humans except for two features, they are bald and the have an elaborate head bone which protrudes round from the back of the head almost to the eyes. It is supposed to be protective.
Franklin heads off to Mars with Marcus and they meet Captain Jack. Franklin also meets Number 1 and they seem to hit it off despite some initial difficulties.
The Gaim are a bunch of really hoopy people! They have an appearance that is determined by their queen. only the Gaim ambassadors for instance, have the appearance of humans except for the finger like appendages sticking out of their nose.
Sheridan is still miffed at the ISN broadcast (see The Illusion of Truth). He is particularly annoyed at the way ISN are able to get away with broadcasting untruths about Babylon 5 unchallenged. ISN indicate that it will not be long before Earth Alliance attack the station again.
An awesome made for TV film. The story of telepaths and their importance to the saga and also a little more info on why Sinclair is so important to the Minbari.
“….You can kill us. You can bomb our colonies, destroy our ships, murder innocent civilians. But you cannot kill the truth. And the truth is back in business”.
Scene setting for a saga that would go on for 5 seasons. Its really interesting to see how the characters developed.
