Quotes

[first lines]
Delenn: The last poem you read tonight--
Shaal Mayan: "In the Light of Two Moons."
Delenn: Did I not hear it when we were--?
Shaal Mayan: Both too young to know anything about anything. We could only feel and wonder what it all meant. But you recall correctly. I did start it then, poor and groping for meaning. It has matured and changed over the years. I finally knew that it was ready last month. Tonight was its first performance.

Filler
2 January 2007 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

For much of the first season of Babylon 5, the series still hadn't established any sort of over-arching plot to connect the episodes like it would have in seasons 2 through 5. In some ways, it was as if the genius behind the series, Michael Staczynski was still trying to feel for a sense of direction. Because of this, so many of the season one episodes are self-contained in that they don't connect well with previous or later episodes. This is pretty much the way of sci-fi shows like Star Trek, but for B-5, this makes these earlier episodes less satisfying.

Of all the early episodes, this one most epitomizes the word "filler". While this didn't mean it was a bad episode, not a whole lot is established in this show other than the fact that Vir is a nice guy and there is some growing xenophobia on Earth. Decent but very skip-able as well.
