Sheridan and Bester working together? Say it isn't so!
24 January 2007 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is a super-bizarre episode because for once Bester and Sheridan seem to be on the same side! Sure, you know that down deep, this is really part of some intricate plan by Bester and Sheridan knows it, but he finds there is little choice but to trust this evil Psi Corps. When Bester arrived on B-5, he announced that there is an evil plot to destroy Earth Force ships enforcing the embargo of B-5 and then blame this on B-5. Who exactly the ships are is unknown, but when Sheridan arrives with Bester at the coordinates, there is indeed an attack on these Earth ships by Psi Corps ships and the fighters of B-5 come to the rescue.

The cost for this information is a trip to Z'Ha'Dum in order to do some unnamed task. When they arrive, a fleet of Shadow-allied ships are rapidly departing and they find a huge cache of telepaths in suspended animation. Apparently, one of the frozen "teeps" is Bester's lover and he will do anything to rescue her. However, these telepaths have been medically altered into killing machines meant to command Shadow vessels, so they must keep them in suspended animation until they can eventually learn how to restore them.

An interesting and unexpected episode to say the least!
