  • While parts of it could have been easily overlooked, other parts were worth watching, more than once.

  • Trivia & Quotes
  • Quotes (10)

    • Delenn: We knew the Warrior Caste was unhappy with our activities. Lennier: Unhappy? Delenn, he's planning to kill you! Delenn: That is one interpretation. Lennier: He said he would use any and all means necessary. I respectfully suggest that he intends to go far beyond harsh language.

    • Neroon: Power beckons, and who among us is strong enough to ignore its siren song?

    • Rathenn: (referring to Sinclair) To be with him was to have the strangest feeling. As though he were only visiting this life, and did not want to be overly burdened by it.

    • Delenn: I have no desire to rule our people. Neroon: I wish I could believe you, Delenn, but I don't. A religious zealot propelled by prophecy into a position of military and political power? Always a bad idea... Out of respect I give you this opportunity to walk away from the path you have taken, refuse the position of Ranger One and turn control of the Rangers over to the Warrior Caste where it belongs. Delenn: Or...? Neroon: I am sworn to stop you, Delenn. By any and all means necessary.

    • Supervisor: It's like he disappeared into thin air. Garibaldi: Thin air. Why is it always thin air? Never fat air, chubby air, mostly fit could stand to lose a few pounds air?

    • After production, Straczynski apologized for certain aspects of the episode, noting that the "Zarg" monster was particularly ineffective.

    Trivia (1)

    • Garibaldi places the bullets in a steam pipe and uses them to shoot the Zarg. Even assuming the steam could generate enough heat to ignite the gunpowder (unlikely), the bullets would all explode at once, blasting the pipe to pieces.

    Allusions (1)

    • Dr. Franklin indicates that his name on the underground telepath railroad is "Harriet." This is a reference to Harriet Tubman, who ran the underground railroad to help slaves escape from the antebellum south.
