  • John Sheridan takes over as the new commander of Babylon 5. His first task involves dealing with a renegade Mimbari group.

    This episode was a great beginning to season 2. The mystery of what happened to the old commander when taken aboard the Mimbari cruiser is solved (well...there is still some mystery there). It was a great introduction to Sheridan's character. He was given a problem to solve and he solves it in 45 minutes.

    The rest of the crew is still in jeopardy from the finale of season 1. Gerabaldi is still in critical condition and Delenn is still in her cocoon. Also the alien threat that was mentioned in the story arc of season one was not mentioned in this episode. It was an intro episode and it was done very well. Since this series was deemed a novel for television, sometimes you just have to have an episode to introduce new characters. This was the one for Captain John Sheridan. Definately a great episode!
