  • More development for the Minbari and the telepaths

    7.8
    Another solid episode as Season One builds towards its close - this is the last of the stand-alone stories, from this point onwards we get story arc episodes.

    This time we get character development for the Minbari and find out more about the telepaths. A Minbari war cruiser brings a legendary war commanders body to the station for a mourning ritual - and it quickly disappears, provoking a full station security alert.

    In the other story, a young orphan girl from Down Below suddenly becomes aware of her latent telepathic ability. Talia wants to send her to the Psi Corps on Earth - needless to say, Ivanova disagrees. In the end, a third option of going to Minbar opens up - which allows the girl to notice that Delenn is hiding something about the missing body. In fact, it turns out that Delenn has swiped the corpse and had it cremated - this opens up the friction that exists between the Warrior and Religious castes in the Minbari, which will become a big factor in future seasons. We also get the usual hints about the role that Sinclair will come to play with the Minbari being dropped all over the place - its a wonder the guy hasn't figured it out yet, with all the little hints from Deleen and Neroon...
