Storyline

Captain Lochley now has solid proof that Garibaldi is a disaster magnet: when he comes to the station to meet with one of his new company's subordinates, she's being sued by the owner of an illegal virtual reality "holo-brothel" and besieged by Soul Hunters looking for one of their soul vessels, this one containing the souls of the long-lost Ralga alien species.

Trivia

In a 2004 interview with The Independent, Ian McShane stated that he wished that he had turned down the role of Dr. Robert Bryson as he had struggled with the technical dialogue and found looking at Martin Sheen, who was wearing an eye in the middle of his forehead, to be the most embarrassing experience that he had ever had while acting. He also added that, during filming, he began making up his own technobabble dialogue which displeased the producers. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Robert Bryson, Ph.D.: I'm sure it's only a little further to the main vault.
Klaus: You've been saying that for two days. This is foolish. There were other vaults we could have tried. Smaller ones. Easier to get into.
Robert Bryson, Ph.D.: Exactly. They were easier to get into. It's a good bet somebody's been there already...

Certainly not the best, but a decent movie
10 November 1998 | by *Prometheus*See all my reviews

Well I gave this movie a 7. It was better than "Thirdspace" but not as good as "In the Beginning" as far as the B5 movies go. I really think the television series did a much better job overall with the special effects and character portrayal. Let's hope the producers and cast get the next series "Crusade" up to the standards of B5.
