While not a GREAT episode, it DOES feature another appearance by Bester!
11 January 2007 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Whenever Bester (Walter Koenig) appeared on BABYLON 5, I always felt pretty excited. That's because he was such a great character--someone you just loved to hate!! His sliminess, smugness and love of all things evil made him a great recurring character on the show. And while this isn't one of his better episodes, even mediocre Bester is still wonderful! The episode concerns the recent smuggling of "dust" onto the station. Dust is some new drug that can cause both euphoria AND help the user to temporarily tap into the feelings and thoughts of nearby people--making even the average bloke like a temporary telepath!! Unfortunately, the results can be very dangerous and it's not surprising that Earth Gov is pushing Sheridan to stop its spread. However, when Bester shows, it's obvious that the concern isn't just for humanitarian reasons--the Psi Corps don't want "mundanes" horning in on their territory! In addition to the drug abuse angle, G'Kar is very interested in getting ahold of the drug so he can use it to probe the mind of his enemy, Londo! The episode is pretty well-written and interesting, though I do have to admit it's not one of the more memorable shows they made.
