    • Sheridan (to the rest of the command staff): The rest of you will be needed here to cover my absence. It's a two-day jump to Earth space, that's a long time to be gone. I'm leaving behind my Identicard, my uniform, command rank, anything that could lead back here if something should go wrong. Susan, in our absence, I'm leaving you and Garibaldi in charge of the Rangers. I'd tell you to take good care of the station but... I know that's not necessary. I've left instructions at my desk for a cover story if we don't come back. Then send out my Starfury and use the autodestruct sequence. Doctor, you'll provide the organic mass to simulate a casualty.
      I wish none of this were necessary. We all knew that sooner or later we'd have to deal with Earth. So, guess it's time we got down to business. If there's any way we can come back, we will.
