Trivia

Sinclair and Ivanova enter the planet across a walkway in a high-tech abyss. This impressive shot is a direct homage to the similar Krell Machine scene in the 1956 classic and highly influential 'Forbidden Planet'. See more »

Above average and an improvement over the last few episodes
3 January 2007 | by See all my reviews

This is the first part of a two-part episode featuring the Minbari "Draal"--an older man who is both Delenn's mentor and is tired of seeing his race change for the worse. He sees that the Minbari and their love of both the spiritual and sanctity of life in general is vanishing and he seems on the brink of suicide as he seeks some higher meaning and purpose. At the same time, the seemingly dead planet over which the station is orbiting is starting to show a lot in instability--with earthquakes that seem ready to cause the planet to blow apart (and taking the station with it). When they investigate, the planet attacks the ships as they near it! Obviously, this "dead" planet is very much alive, though also perhaps a bit sick as well! How all this is resolved is wonderful and sets the stage for future appearances of Draal. However, oddly, in future episodes, he's played by John Schuck! I actually didn't mind this because Shuck's version of Draal is MUCH more fun to watch, as he finally shows a sense of humor and is a much more life-like character.
