[first lines]
Londo Mollari: A Narn heavy cruiser? This is intolerble! By treaty all Narn warships will be turned over to Centauri forces.
Michael Garibaldi: Sorry, we didn't sign that treaty. You got a problem, call Earth. If they hadn't forced us to break away, we wouldn't need a mutual protection agreement. We take every ship we can get.
Londo Mollari: And what guarantee will you give me that the cruiser will not open fire on a Centauri vessel as it approaches Babylon 5, hmmm?

Too harsh
20 September 2017 | by See all my reviews

OK while i agree this was not the best episode of the season i would not call it the worst of the show.Erica Gimpel is a good singer no doubt.And having the doc meet someone while on walkabout is natural.And this part of the episode is no worse then the episode in season 1 where Londo meets a woman and gets attracted to her.If a series was just about wars and death it would not be a good show.Besides in the same episode you get a confrontation with the Shadows that is important for the rest of the show.Besides in season 5 there are a lot more bad episodes then this one.Personally i think they should have quit after 4 years when they killed off Marcus and Claudia Christian (Susan Ivanova) left.Her replacement and the backstory they had for that character was almost something out of a soap-opera.Every now and then the show does get a bit over dramatic.As for this episode there is more to it then just the Steven arc.If you miss it you miss something important
