The artifact was designed in cooperation with Wayne Douglas Barlow, author of Barlow's Guide to Extraterrestrials. See more »


Even if the carbon ratios from the artifact's origin were known, Carbon-14 dating is only effective for dating things to about 60,000 years. Other radioisotopes would be used to date anything much older, yet Ivanova says that carbon dating determined the object is over a million years old. See more »

User Reviews

By FAR the worst of the B5 movies !
24 June 1999 | by delenn-11See all my reviews

I've never liked this film very much and in fact it's probably the only time I watched a story of B5 and didn't like it on first watching, it's never really improved much.

Generally the acting is fairly poor, Shari Belafonte does a passable job and the main acting is poor all round except for a slightly improved performance for Patricia Tallman and one good scene between Tallman and Conaway.

In fact I'd say watch the elevator scene and listen to Trent's explanation about what happened to Lyta Alexander when she went into vorlon space, but ignore all the rest.

This film was set in Season Four of the show, but sadly pales to all the episodes of that season except for "Conflicts of Interest" and "The Illusion of Truth".

By far the worst of the B5 movies.
