Captain Sheridan misquotes Archimedes, discoverer of the principles of leverage. Sheridan says, "Give me a lever big enough and I will move the world." What Archimedes actually said was, "Give me somewhere to stand, and I will move the Earth." See more »

A bit of a divergence from the underlying theme of the show, but it's a very good episode nevertheless
8 January 2007 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

As the episode begins, you see an alien ship being abducted by a much larger alien ship--who and what these are is uncertain. Later, when Sheridan and a small group of B-5 pilots are on maneuvers, Sheridan himself is captured by this same huge ship. Once aboard, he awakens to find he's a prisoner in an odd-looking cell and there's no indication where he is or who has kidnapped him. Suddenly, a crazed Drazi appears and tries to kill Sheridan. This Drazi is wearing some sort of device on his head that appears to make him an unreasoning fighting machine and Sheridan is forced to kill him to prevent being killed. Then, a Narn with a similar device appears and Sheridan tries again and again not to kill but just disable the guy. Although seriously injured, Sheridan does his best to care for the Narn and is able to eventually get the device off his head.

In the meantime, the station is panicked trying to find Sheridan. With the help of the Minbari, they are able to get some clues as to where he's being held. Considering Bruce Boxleitner IS the star of the show, it isn't surprising that he is eventually rescued. However, considering how well written this episode is AND because the Narn he saves eventually appeared in future episodes (I love this continuity), it is a standout show.
