"We have been betrayed on nearly every level. And it is going to take the efforts of every loyal citizen to keep Earth safe--and ideologically pure."
- – Julie Musante
Julie Musante was a member of President Morgan Clark's administration. A high-ranking member of Nightwatch, a division of the Ministry of Peace, Musante vigorously defended Clark's new policies, paraphrasing her perspective as "sometimes before you can solve a problem, you first have to redefine a problem" (an idea that points back to Polya's Rules of Math).
In early 2260, she was sent to Babylon 5 to become the political officer for the station. Captain John Sheridan made it clear he had no intention of sharing his command. She assured him that her role is simply to advise. She has the captain take her to dinner to try and earn his trust. After dinner she arranged to come back to his quarters and tried to seduce him, but Sheridan managed to evade her advances.
The following day, Musante announced to the Nightwatch personnel on the station new Earth policies which would curtail some "traditional areas of free speech and association." Musante warned that the Earth Alliance was in grave peril, stating the government and military had been infiltrated by traitors at every level. She asks Zack Allan to keep her informed of anything Captain Sheridan might leave out, a proposition he is not at all comfortable with.
When a copy of a transmission implicating President Clark in the death of his predecessor became public, Musante was recalled to Earth. Clark declared martial law soon afterward, an act which triggered the Earth Alliance Civil War.
