When Marcus and Dr Franklin are traveling to Mars their transport is clearly firing its engines, yet when we see inside, objects are floating in zero gravity. Also, before going zero gravity, practically all items must be fastened down, so they *can't* float off, especially that suspiciously wrench like item floating in the middle. This is to prevent damage to people and to the objects themselves, when the ship starts boosting again. See more »


[first lines]
Zack Allan: *Ouch*! - I'm telling you, I can't take much more of this.
Lennier: Just a little longer. It is necessary.
Zack Allan: Yeah, says who?
Lennier: Mr. Allan, you are now the head of security. The rest of the command staff accepted Delenn's gift of these new uniforms. Do you not wish to fit in?

Crazy Credits

At the closing credits, instead of the regular theme, the credits appear over Marcus singing "The Major-General's Song" (from "The Pirates of Penzance"). Doctor Franklin moans in agony, then you hear the director say, "End credits, very good. Cut." Marcus replies, "What?" See more »

Pretty good, but not great
25 January 2007 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

This is a fairly good episode directed by Tony Dow (the Beaver's brother on "Leave it to Beaver"). Unlike episodes that have two contiguous themes, this one centers almost completely on Delenn's return to Minbar for "the Dreaming"--an exploratory dream-like rite that helps them get in touch with truth. In this case, the high muckity-mucks from her clan want her to explore her motivations for her recent actions. There is a fissure, as many in her clan are pretty xenophobic and can't understand her desire to marry an alien. To accompany her on this journey is Lennier, who you really have to feel sorry for (as usual), because it's obvious he loves her and cannot have her.

While on the journey, at first Delenn THINKS that maybe her clan is right (though she knows in her heart they aren't). How all this is resolved is pretty interesting, but not an episode that is a must-see.
