Babylon 5--Points of Departure
22 April 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Captain John Sheridan (Bruce Boxleitner) is commanding the Agamemnon when his superiors request he take command of Babylon 5 station. Commander Sinclair is now Ambassador on the Minbari Homeworld, Ambassador Delenn is still in her cocoon, Security Chief Garibaldi is still in a coma, a warrior caste who would not surrender at the Battle of the Line re-emerge just as Sheridan takes command, and a potential war with Minbari could be on the horizon as the Trigati cruiser seems on the verge of attacking Babylon 5 station. So the second season opens and a ton of developments under way. The whole mystery about why the Minbari surrendered at the Battle of Line is communicated to Sheridan and Ivanova by Lennier while Delenn remains cocooned. It is how Minbari and humans are more "closely related" than realized, in regards to "soul displacement". How Sinclair was the "chosen one" mainly because Delenn "made a pick" while within the Grey Council as the remaining human ships were about to be decimated due to "advanced stealth technology" (as Sheridan explains). Okay, so Sheridan has a rather unfavorable history with the Minbari due to how he commanded one of the only victories against them during the war. He's called Starkiller by the Minbari actually. So relations will be uneasy on Babylon station when the Minbari arrive. The leader of the Trigati boards with the intent of re-igniting war between Earth-Force and Minbari by becoming a martyr (as well as, his ship's crew, all forsaken for not surrendering, unable to return to their homeworld due to their stance). Sinclair sees through this and salvages what could have been a far worse mess, sending off a distress signal through the jump gate, with help arriving in a Minbari cruiser intercepting in the nick of time. So, a lively bit of action to start off the second season. Ivanova was under Sheridan's command in the past so he's welcome warmly by her, and it seems he will win over the confidence and support of the Babylon station crew. However, Minbari may not welcome him so fondly.
