Trivia

Producer J. Michael Straczynski met Everett McGill at a restaurant, and later decided to use him in the episode "Severed Dreams", but couldn't remember his first name. He told the casting director to get "that McGill guy". On the day of shooting, Straczynski found Bruce McGill waiting on the set. There was no time to correct the mistake, so Bruce McGill was used.

Londo Mollari: This is absurd! Two hours I have been standing in line. "Our staff are overwehelmed," they tell me. "Too many people to get home or escape here. Rumors of rebellion and war. Even the diplomatic lanes are clogged."...

This, and the previous episode, make for a powerful combination
11 January 2007 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

In so many ways, this is a terrific episode and a wonderful follow-up to the last one. In the previous episode, despite Night Watch being ordered to take control of B-5, Sheridan defied this and arrested the members of this paramilitary organization. Now, in response, Earth Gov has sent an armada to both take control of the station AND arrest Sheridan! This isn't at all unexpected, but means the death of the idea of Babylon 5 as a place for peace. However, Sheridan refuses to allow himself or the station to be taken! Talk about a major conflict!! For those who love the series, this episode and ones like it are the reason that you have patiently watched for so long--the plot threads running through so many episodes are finally coming together and it's exciting to see how this so brilliantly unfolds. A not to be missed episode.
