Londo Mollari: No! No, this report is totally inappropriate. You have to do it again.
Vir Cotto: But, Londo, why? I've spent weeks working on this report. I didn't even sleep on the flight back from Minbar so I could go over it again. I've checked every single detail myself. It's absolutely accurate.
Londo Mollari: Yes, Vir, I'm sure it is, and that is the problem.

So exciting it made my chest pound with excitement (or was it a heart attack?)
11 January 2007 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is a terrific episode--so exciting and quite a wonderful way to FINALLY break with Earth! The episode begins with even more onerous regulations and control being taken from the Captain and given to the Brown Shirt-like "Night Watch". Over the last year or so, the Night Watch have been introduced. Originally, they were seen as a patriotic organization. Then, they were morphed into a paramilitary group who would act like spies to tell on suspected "anti-Earth" activities or talk. Then, they actually began exerting power--arresting and detaining those suspected of sedition! Now, they are to be handed total control of the station even though it is supposed to be neutral. With their fascist tactics, this CANNOT be allowed, so the Captain must do something to re-take control and deport the Night Watch. How this is all worked out is brilliant and very exciting--but I don't want to spoil it by revealing details (but they are COOL, trust me). Great writing make this one a must-see!
