Yeah, it's "Bester time"!!
19 January 2007 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Of all the Babylon 5 episodes, the ones with Bester are among my favorites. That's because this character played by Walter Koenig (yes, that's the guy who played 'Chekov' on STAR TREK) is among the coolest of the series. He is so evil but also funny and engaging at the same time. He's the guy you love to hate!! This time, the ever-hated Bester arrives on a mission to HELP Babylon 5 by giving them some needed information--at a price. What is the price? Well, Sheridan needs to help Bester on a mission to rescue some unknown "package" and if he does this, Bester will reveal a Psi Corp plot to undermine B-5. Oddly, all that Bester does seems to work out just dandy for B-5,....making everyone wonder what the heck is REALLY occurring! I could easily say a lot more about this, but would hate to ruin the surprises in the show. The bottom line is that Bester's involved AND important aspects of the ongoing Shadow plot are revealed--a real "win/win" situation.
