Contains seeds for the future
8 January 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This one's got some nice foreshadowing buried in the plot: biological weapon systems, archaeologists unearthing unsuspected ancient evil, the past haunting the present, people cutting corners who get burned, old friends reappearing and providing "interesting" plot twists.

So I disagree with the first writer who said that it doesn't tie into later episodes. This is one of the earliest where you can say "this is where that storyline began" or "this is a hint of major plot lines which culminate in episode X".

This episode also is one which is a good example of B5's (Straczinski's) habit of locating older actors who are associated with quality work or science fiction acting in the "distant past". A lot of the one-shot parts in B5 get filled with well-known actors like Ian "Man from U.N.C.L.E" McCallum: people you recognize from the 60's and 70's and who do excellent work for the show.
