Trivia

Executive Producer J. Michael Straczynski later played down the part of Draal in the series. Straczynski explained that a person with access to high-tech science heightened the danger of 'deus ex machina', God out of the machine; the idea that all problems can be solved with advanced technology. If that were to happen, the 'human' element in the show would be lost. Babylon 5 was about people. See more »

A continuation of the last excellent episode
3 January 2007 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is the second 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! In this particular episode, once the potential power of this planet is seen, both humans and aliens try to lay claim to it. How all this is resolved is pretty impressive.

However, oddly, in future episodes, Draal is 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.
