The Babylon Project

Value Judgements is an intended episode from the TV Series Crusade which is a spin off from Babylon 5. However, due to the cancellation of Crusade early in its first season this episode was never filmed. Fiona Avery released the script to this episode shortly after the cancellation of the series. "Value Judgements" would have marked the return of the character Alfred Bester.

Where Are You Going? Anywhere I Have To. Who do you serve and who do you trust? Who do you serve and who do you trust?"

After the Telepath Crisis, Alfred Bester was captured and charged with war crimes including killing mundanes in his role as a Psi Cop before the war and killing rogue telepaths during the recent war. He has now escaped and become a hunted criminal. Gideon's crew go to a colony to inspect an archeological dig. An alien vault is guarded by a door with a telepathic lock. Matheson is not powerful enough to open it, so they seek out the telepath that lives nearby for help. Matheson is alarmed when they discover this telepath is Alfred Bester. He is dumbfounded that his crewmates even consider asking the telepath for his help after they learn his identity. Max Eilerson and Dureena Nafeel are willing to overlook Bester's past if he can help with their mission, and Dr. Chambers seems to side with Matheson. This leaves Gideon to make a decision that half his crew won't agree with.
