Trivia

When the Whitestar reverses course to escape Jupiter, Sheridan calls out for full power. He's right to do so. Escape velocity from Jupiter's gravity well is 60.2 km/s (216,720 km/h, 134,692 mph). See more »

Goofs

When the Whitestar enters Jupiter's atmosphere, Lennier reports that the external pressure is at "...two standard gravities." Pressure in this case would be expressed in standard atmospheres, not gravities. See more »

Michael Garibaldi: You know, I've been stuck in this tin can for three years. I haven't taken a vacation. Okay, okay, it's my fault, I had the leave coming, I just didn't take it. And the pay sucks, I knew that when I signed on! And nobody said I'd survive the job! Now, I give you all that. But where in my contract does it say I have to eat the same food... every day... for three years.

Sheridan finally crosses the line,...
11 January 2007 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Up until this episode, Sheridan has been moving towards treason, as he has recently formed a secret group of command staff who are have begun to see Earth Gov as a potential enemy! This is because over time, it's become obvious that the Earth is increasingly repressive and amoral and the President gained this position through murder and the assistance of the Shadows! But, given that they are biding their time, it is not obvious to those outside this small group that anything is amiss on B-5. However, over time, it's been increasingly difficult to do stand by while evil is being perpetrated by Earth Gov--such as their signing a non-aggression pact with the Nazi-like Centauri and outlawing free speech.

This episode shows the first overt action against Earth Gov, as the captain takes the White Star on a mission to attack an installation on one of the moons of Jupiter! That's because the Earth is secretly working on activating a Shadow ship and they feel they MUST attack before it is fully operational.

The show is pretty exciting and I felt a great sense of relief that the B-5 staff were finally doing something! Until then, you kept hearing the familiar refrain to "wait" but now the waiting, thankfully, is over and the show is beginning to accelerate into high gear!
