Interesting Premise
25 January 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The Brakari "rent" a section of Babylon 5 - Which "becomes" part of the Brakari Homeworld for all intents and purposes. Literally AND Figuratively - Much to the chagrin of Garibaldi and Lockley, who just could NOT kick back and enjoy it! All I know, is if I were there, I'd be happy to talk to whoever is brought back - And I would not waste as much time as Garibaldi wasted - Especially with that woman, who he did not get to Boff before she was killed in action.

Even Poor Lennier, had an opportunity to pick the mind of Mr. Morden - But in some ways, Lennier was a SNOB, and was a victim of his own Minbari Religion. Kind of like, a bunch of my Friends who are the same way - Too religious to really take advantage of anything.

I like the premise, and the way the ep unfolds. Very good writing, very JMS - Even though it was written by Comic Book veteran Neil Gaiman. One of the best Season 5 B5 Eps.
