Welles meets members of the Nightwatch onboard "informally", but singles out [[Zack Allan]] for not sending in any reports. He hints that any thought could be seditious and it was up to the administration to decide what is seditious or not. Allan admits there was a complaint but not that it was serious. Welles presses him, noting the reports others have made about the inconsequential but, to Welles, significant, grievances of others. Allan is clearly uncomfortable reporting this, but Welles forgives it, saying he shows promise.

===Act IV===
Lantze and Welles confront Sheridan for destroying a Centauri ship. Sheridan defends his orders, citing [[General Order 47]] to assist any vessel not in direct conflict with [[Earthforce]]. Lantze counters that his actions provoked the Centauri to accuse Babylon 5 of moving to a pro-Narn position. Welles intervenes just then, saying that the Joint Chiefs support Sheridan's act, but also points out that they should have been informed of the sanctuary request immediately. Lantze says that the Centauri are willing to accept an apology in exchange for the loss of the [[Primus class battlecruiser]], but Sheridan opposes it. Then, Welles threatens to replace him if he doesn't do it in a meeting with various ambassadors due in an hour.

Sheridan changes to his formal uniform and practices his apology speech but relishes the thought of admitting his pride in his actions. Meanwhile, at the Ambassadorial meeting in Hydroponics, Ivanova spots a hiding G'Kar who wishes to publicly express his support for Sheridan.

Lt. Keffer, meanwhile, is in space looking for the ghost and its neutrino emissions. Finally, he sights the Shadow Vessel. He begins recording it. He attaches a homing beacon to the recording and ejects it before the Shadow ship fires on his Starfury, destroying it.

While on the public shuttle to the meeting, Sheridan spots a bomb on the train. He is quick enough to activate an emergency override on the doors to jump out over hydroponics. The ambassadors watch in horror overhead, and Delenn begs Kosh to act. Kosh exits from his encounter suit, emerges as a glowing angel, catches the falling Sheridan and safely returns him to ground.
