I liked it.

I think it was very much a B5 episode in that it showed the characters had lives before the station ever existed. You see this in later episode in the series when the writers take the focus away from the main characters as in 'A view from the gallery'. The story arch was contained in Ivanova having to deal with the death of her father. The character building skills of the writers is what kept me watching the show. That and the knowledge that it only planed to run for 5 years gave me hope of a complete story arch. Consider this,one could see the Mu-tai as a simile of the coming conflict. One race pitted against another far stronger than itself but one it must face all the same. Remember the boxer tried to explain it to Garibaldi that the match was more about finding your limits in facing adversity than anything else. AKA the Shadow Way.
