Trivia

This is the first mention of the Ministry of Peace, when Pierce Macabee introduces himself as its representative to Talia Winters. The term "Ministry of Peace" (and its ironic abbreviation) was first used in George Orwell's 1948 novel '1984', where it was the name of the War Ministry. It co-existed with ministries for propaganda (Ministry of Truth, or MiniTru), rationing (Ministry of Plenty, or MiniPlenty) and secret police (Ministry of Love, or MiniLuv). See more »

Goofs

Pre-title there is a crew list of the Icarus showing a picture of Mr Morden smiling. After the titles we cut back to the same scene only now it is a completely different picture of Morden on the crew list. The reason for the difference is that the latter (unsmiling) picture is from Morden's recent B5 entry record Garibaldi has called up for comparison, as demonstrated by the text listing all his recent comings and goings.

Not the best, but one of the best of the season!
8 January 2007 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is an absolute not to be missed episode of Babylon 5. Part of this is because the episode is so interesting but also because so many important plot elements are addressed that will become super-important to the series in later seasons.

The ever-evil and slimy Mr. Morden is once again on the station. However, for the first time, the captain and security begin to recognize that he might be a threat to the station and to the Earth Allience--particularly when they scan the computer network and find that Morden had been killed during the same mission in which Sheridan's wife was killed!!!! The fact that he appears to be very much alive is a major concern--particularly for the Captain Ahab-like Sheridan who MUST know what, exactly, happened to his wife at Z'Ha'Dum! The episode is well-written and exciting from start to finish--super important show to be seen by all lovers of the series.
