Pretty good, but this episode doesn't quite "fit" with later episodes
5 January 2007 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Well, considering that this episode features Walter Koenig as the recurring character, "Bester", I am being a bit charitable and giving the episode an 8--he's THAT good a supporting character! Bester is an evil and slimy Psi Cop who loves his job of enforcing loyalty to the Corps. In this episode, he's investigating rumors that runaway telepaths are being routed to safety through Babylon 5 and he's here to find the security leak and punish those responsible.

It's not a bad episode, though how Talia becomes involved in the movement is a bit hard to swallow based on where her character eventually goes in the series. Her actions in this episode just seem too inconsistent to who she really is. Otherwise, though, it is an interesting look at a group of people running from the evil clutches of the Corps.
