The explosion at the start of the episode is far back from the "front" of the station, plus with rotation, anything coming out would be flung outward, in addition to the force of the explosion itself. There is no way that anything - including a person - blown out from there would be visible from the Command Deck. See more »

Jane: Rumors are still running rampant in Earth Dome as President Luis Santiago continues his journey to Babylon 5. While the president is scheduled to present a new fighter wing to the station, many believe his real reason for the visit is to build support for his new alien immigration and trade agreements, which have met with strong opposition in the Senate.

It's about average for season one
8 January 2007 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

When Babylon 5 first began, the show VERY slowly began to reveal that there were some themes and plot lines that would make the show less of a series and more like one giant story. However, in the first season, this overarching vision wasn't always apparent and many of the shows seemed unrelated to each other. Because of this, the early episodes, in most cases, were inferior to those of season two and later.

This episode is one that explains more of the back story of Garibaldi. When he is framed for sabotage, we see that eventually he degenerates to self-pity and alcoholism, as that was the way he handled things in the past. However, given that he is a flawed character that is evolving and improving, he ultimately is able to gain control over himself and his innocence is proved. Yay. Not a bad episode, but also not a particularly great one either.
