Synopsis: Ari Ben Zayn, a colonel with Earth Force internal affairs, reveals that he and Corps telepath Harriman Gray, a military officer, are there to investigate the Babylon 5 command staff. Ben Zayn tells Sinclair that they will all submit to telepathic scans, which Ivanova protests even to the point of resigning her Earthforce commission. Garibaldi realizes a connection between Ben Zayn and the Psi Cop Bester, and Sinclair prompts the Colonel to admit that he was sore over the fact that Sinclair was chosen to command Babylon 5. Garibaldi’s attempt to build a Kawasaki motorcycle from the 1990s stalls, so an Interested Lennier takes over.
