Trivia

This season was produced under a new network (TNT rather than the WB). The show had a reduced budget and a shorter shooting week to help cover costs. See more »

Goofs

Sheridan says that there are no planets where the telepaths could go, but that is not true. The Markab race died out in the second season, and Sheridan later destroyed the jump-gate there in a battle with the Shadows. The Markab homeworld would be isolated, and have empty cities awaiting new inhabitants, perfect for the telepaths. See more »

A better than expected transitional episode
1 April 2007 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Considering that the character Ivanova just left the show and this is the first episode of season 5, my expectations for this particular episode were pretty low. After all, the major plots of seasons 3 and 4 were completed and no major conflicts seemed to be brewing as this season began. In fact, much of this is probably due to the expectation that there would not be a fifth season and writer, Straczynski wrapped everything up nicely in the previous season. However, despite all this, this was a very good episode because there was genuine tension and a good plot--not just an introduction of a new character (Captain Lochley).

The episode begins with Lochley arriving aboard B-5. Fortunately, not too much time is spent devoted to getting to know her character, as the plot begins to explode and little time is spent dawdling about her arrival. Sheridan is awaiting his inauguration as the President of the Galactic Alliance and G'Kar is beside himself trying to come up with the perfect oath Sheridan will take for the office. However, even this is interrupted when a crazed psychopath begins taunting Sheridan--leaving messages that he will murder the President-elect! This made the episode very tense and at the ceremonies it all came to a dramatic head.

Well written, exciting and fast-paced--this is a very good episode indeed.
