Synopsis: Sinclair is gone, Garibaldi is in a coma, Ambassador Delenn is in a cocoon, G’Kar has mysteriously disappeared, and Londo is fearfully basking in the glory of a successful mission against the Narn at Quadrant 37. The renegade Minbari warship Trigati arrives at the station, it’s captain angry over Starkiller Sheridan’s appointment by the President as the new B5 CO.
Sheridan: It was an early earth president, Abraham Lincoln, who best described our situation: The dogmas of the quiet past are inadequate for the stormy present. The occasion is piled high with difficulty, and we must rise to the occasion. We can not escape history. We will be remembered, in spite of ourselves. The fiery trial through which we pass will light us down in honor or dishonor, to the last generation. We shall nobly save, or meanly lose our last best hope.
Ivanova: Status report, Lt. Commander Susan Ivanova reporting. It is now eight days since the death of earth alliance president Luis Santiago and five days since commander Sinclair was recalled to earth without explanation. And the whole place has gone straight to hell. And as far as I am concerned the transports can wait until the sun explodes. And if your not happy with the seating arrangements, I will personally order your seats to be moved outside, down the hall, across the station and into the fusion reactor. Am I absolutely perfectly clear on this? I can only conclude that I am paying off karma at a vastly accelerated rate.
