Telepath politics. Gunboat diplomacy. Newlywed apartment living. Doesn’t sound like much. SPOILER ALERT: We absofragginlutely loved this episode.
It was easy to get everyone to agree to do something. Now President Sheridan has to get them to all agree on how to do it. He gets unexpected help from the same telepath group that he granted sanctuary to.

Somewhat to their surprise, the cast and crew and showrunner got their fifth season. But to quote some guy way back in the first, “Nothing’s the same anymore.” Sheridan’s wearing a suit, not a uniform. Ivanova’s gone.

The season that JMS and crew never thought would arrive arrived. Let us know what you think of the kickoff to Babylon 5‘s final year. Spoilers to the left, please.
Let us contemplate the futures of Tracy Scoggins/Elizabeth Lochley, John Sheridan’s beard, Michael Garibaldi’s job, and B5‘s fifth season itself!
Creepy Cthulhu aliens from beyond Firstspace and Secondspace! This Untold Tale of Babylon 5 was produced after the fourth season when they had no hint there would be a fifth.

Next up: Season 5!
