Trivia

Babylon 5 (1994) Executive Producer J. Michael Straczynski had been musing on story ideas when he pondered what Adolf Hitler (if he were still alive) could possibly offer to stave off prosecution for mass murder. The only thing that seemed plausible was an immortality serum. This idea was transformed into the story, Deathwalker. See more »

Goofs

When confronted by Ambassador Kalika and the other representatives of the League of Non-Aligned Worlds, Commander Sinclair says that he has orders to transport Jha'Dur to Earth and that he couldn't disobey those orders. In truth, he could disregard the order since it had come from Senator Hidoshi. A senator is not part of the military command hierarchy and cannot issue orders to officers in Earthforce (as Captain Sheridan pointed out in the episode "Point of No Return"). Only a superior officer or the Commander In Chief could do that. See more »

Very good episode with an interesting moral dilemma
2 January 2007 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This show is highly reminiscent of an episode from one of the Star Trek series (though I cannot recall exactly which Trek series it was--let me know if you remember). In BOTH episodes, a brilliant but evil researcher has conducted important medical research through genocide! It's very much like some of the studies conducted by some Nazi researchers and the fundamental question is "do we benefit from something obtained through murder and mutilation?". Many on Earth and the other worlds have little, if any, compunction about taking this information even if it means immunity from prosecution for the Mengele-like researcher offering what seems like a blessing. Others could care less about the benefit and simply want to punish the evil-doer. I love how the moral question is asked and I particularly liked the ultimate details of this medical "miracle". However, since this is not an original idea, I gotta knock off a point and give it an 8 of 10.
