Some inconsistencies with the version of these events presented in "Babylon Squared": - In B2, Major Krantz says that Zathras suddenly appeared in the middle of a conference room after a time-flash. Here, Zathras is caught by security guards while rummaging through a box of equipment. - The B2 scene where Delenn puts her hand on Sinclair's shoulder and says that they have to go, shows her wearing a red robe. In this episode, she is wearing dark brown. Also, the computer voice announcing "Present time atmosphere now breathable" does not appear in WWE's version of this scene. - When 'The One', clearly wounded, appears in B2, there are grunts of pain coming from its suit - in a male voice. However, when an astronaut in a blue suit rescues Zathras in B2, it is revealed to be Sinclair; but in WWE, it is Delenn, indicating that events in the past have been changed. In WWE, we learn that this is Delenn, and so we should have heard a female voice. - In B2, Babylon 4's motion through time was stopped by The One so that the station's original crew could evacuate. However, in WWE, the station stops traveling when Major Krantz powers up the fusion reactor. Also, the idea of faking a reactor accident to get the crew away was Ivanova's, not any of the versions of The One. See more »

Commander Jeffrey David Sinclair: Previously on Babylon 5:
Rathenn: It has waited, locked and sealed, for over 900 years. How did he know that you would be here? How did he know your name?
Cmdr. Susan Ivanova: [over radio] They're killing us. Can anyone hear me. They're killing us!
Delenn: At this moment, the Great Machine is using all its power to enlarge the temporal rift in Sector 14. We must take Babylon 4 one thousand years into the past and help defeat the Shadows in the last war...

This is where the show crosses the line.
4 April 2010 | by (Pacific Northwest) – See all my reviews

Up until this and the previous episode, it could be argued the Babylon 5 was just another television show. Sure, it had some long arcs and better than average writing, but prior to these two episodes it remained within the pantheon of the ordinary. Here, it vaults into an entirely different realm where few other shows have gone. It's like that brilliant moment at the end of "Being There" where suddenly everything that seemed perhaps somewhat unrelated or unfocused snaps into clarity, and it is the mark of an excellent script when this happens. These two episodes become a lens by which the rest of the series is sharpened, honed, and eventually produces one of the greatest stories told in the medium and perhaps in the top twenty-five of all mediums.
