Synopsis: The history and influence of Babylon 5 and its leaders are examined in a series of flashbacks by a mysterious person who is recording Earth history before its solar system’s sun goes nova a million years in the future.
Brother Alwin: We live for the one, we die for the one.
Brother Alwin: Faith sustains us, in the hour when reason tells us that we can not continue, that the whole of our lives is without meaning.
Londo: So Doctor, who died. Franklin: What are you talking about. Londo: Among my people, this is how we celebrate state funerals. Our marriage ceremonies are solemn; sober; Moments of reflection; also regret; disagreement; argument; and mutual recrimination. Once you know that it can’t get any worse, you can relax and enjoy the marriage. But to start with something like this, oh, it is a very bad sign for the future. Perhaps it was something I said. G’kar: Perhaps it is everything you say.
Delenn: You do not wish to know anything! You wish only to speak. That which you know, you ignore, because it is inconvenient. That which you do not know, you invent.
Daniel: This is how the world ends, swallowed in fire, but not in darkness. You will live on. The voice of all our ancestors, the voice of our fathers and our mothers to the last generation. We created the world, we think you would have wished for and now we leave the cradle for the last time.
