Trivia

The term "Ministry of Peace" was first used in George Orwell's 1948 novel '1984', where it was the name of the War Ministry. Abbreviated in Newspeak as "MiniPax", it co-existed with ministries for propaganda (Ministry of Truth, or MiniTrue), rationing (Ministry of Plenty, or MiniPlenty) and secret police (Ministry of Love, or MiniLuv).

Generally excellent, but it's a mixed bag
11 January 2007 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

The episode begins with a representative of the Ministry of Peace(!) coming to B-5 to "assist" Sheridan. This assistant is one amazingly beautiful but cold and ambitious lady--as she is both quick to offer her body to an embarrassed Sheridan AND she's a propaganda-spewing machine that never seems to quit in spouting platitudes and disinformation! She's like morphing Miss American with Joseph Goebels!! And, with this snoopy and obnoxious lady following him, Sheridan is having a devil of a time attending to business--particularly that involving his blossoming conspiracy against Earth Gov! In addition, Ivanova is sent to try and establish contact with "the first ones"--people who preceded the Shadows and might be powerful enough to assist them in the upcoming war. This part is only mildly interesting, at best and features a really weird alien who is practically beyond description! All-in-all, not a bad episode--particularly in regard to the evil and insidious nature of "the Ministry of Peace"--a brilliant insight into evil.
