Cast NotesEdit



Ambassador Londo Mollari is furious that a Narn heavy cruiser is present outside Babylon 5 and demands that all Narn military assets are to be turned over to the Centauri. Michael Garibaldi points out that that agreement is between the Centauri and Earth Alliance, not Babylon 5 and they need all defense they can get.

Lyta Alexander arrives on Babylon 5 looking for Dr. Stephen Franklin. Informed that he is on walkabout by Dr. Lillian Hobbs, she asks if anyone was present with Kosh at the end.

The new Vorlon ambassador arrives. The Vorlon ship diverts from its course and rises to meet Captain John Sheridan, who is taking a walk on the station exterior.

G'Kar hosts the captain of the Narn heavy cruiser, Na'Kal, who has been on the run for months. G'Kar learns about how much of the Narn fleet remains. Na'Kal wonders when they will strike back but G'Kar says defending Babylon 5 is their most important task.

Sheridan and Susan Ivanova prepare to meet the new Vorlon ambassador. Garibaldi is supposed to join them, but Ivanova noticed that Dr. Stephen Franklin has not uses his quarters for days, and Garibaldi has gone to check up on him. Sheridan and Ivanova meet the new Vorlan ambassador and tell him that Kosh's death is a secret. In essence,the new ambassador will take Kosh's role and continue to act as him.

Garibaldi figures out where Franklin will be in Downbelow and goes to check up on him. Franklin explains that he is on "walkabout," trying to find himself and his place in the world again.

The new Vorlon ambassador views the scene of Kosh's death in his quarters. Seeking out Lyta, the ambassador wants to know if Kosh left a piece of himself in Lyta. When she tells him that she was absent, the ambassador tells Lyta she failed. The ambassador then asks if another was present, but Lyta does not know.

Act IIEdit

Lyta meets with Sheridan to discuss the new Vorlon ambassador. During the conversation, Lyta senses that Sheridan has a piece of Kosh within him.

In a bar in Downbelow, Franklin watches Cailyn James, a singer, performing on stage.

In the war room, Sheridan reminds his allies that Garibaldi has uncovered a potential weakness in the Shadows – that they are vulnerable to telepaths. Sheridan is determined to see if the theory is true and arranges a mission to engage a lone Shadow Vessel with the White Star. Lyta Alexander will join him, with back up forces ready in case of trouble.

Franklin and Cailyn meet after her performance and are instantly attracted to one another.

Na'Kal arrives at G'Kar's quarters. G'Kar wants Na'Kal to act as back up for the mission Sheridan is embarking on, but Na'Kal considers it a fools errand. Citing the need for keeping their ships available for the eventual retaking of the Narn Homeworld, he declines to take part.

Act IIIEdit

In hyperspace, the White Star and a Minbari cruiser await word of a Shadow attack. Franklin and Cailyn go to her place and prepare to spend the night together.

In the middle of the night, G'Kar is woken by an angry Garibaldi who is furious that the Narn cruiser did not accompany Sheridan. He points out that Sheridan did not have to protect the cruiser when it arrived, or sending Babylon 5's pilots out to defend it. G'Kar sees the bigger picture where Na'Kal does not.

After spending the night together, Franklin asks if there's anything he can do for her. Cailyn wants a powerful narcotic that helps her sleep. Franklin asks her to ask him for anything but that.

Waiting for the Shadow attack, Lyta and Sheridan talk about Kosh's death and how he found out about it. Sheridan tells her he work up from a dream about. Lennier picks up an attack, and Sheridan leaves hyperspace in the White Star to find a single Shadow Vessel attacking other ships. Lyta tries to engage the ship telepathically, but cannot. The Shadow Vessel turns to engage.

Act IVEdit

Sheridan tries to get Lyta to act and she sees into his mind and finds that the Shadows killed Kosh. Her resolve strengthened, Lyta manages to freeze the Shadow Vessel in flight. The White Star fires but the power is not enough. Lennier takes the jump engines off line to increase weapon power enough to destroy the ship.

While waiting for the engines to recharge, four Shadow Vessels arrive to destroy the White Star. The ship begins to run, and the Minbari cruiser jumps in to assist. Three of the ships are stopped by the Minbari telepaths, but the fourth continues on. Lyta tries to block it but the last fight took it out of her.

The Narn heavy cruiser arrives in time and the combined weapon fire of the cruiser and the White Star destroy the Shadow Vessel. G'Kar arrives leading a fleet of League ships, and the rest of the Shadow Vessels run.

Act VEdit

Franklin wakes to find Cailyn passed out after having stolen his information to get drugs. Franklin takes her to Medlab. Franklin believes it was a drug overdose, but finds out she is suffering from terminal neuro-paralysis. Franklin arranges for her to get as much medicine as she needs for as long as she needs it.

Returning to Babylon 5, Lyta reveals to the new ambassador that she suspects Sheridan has a piece of Kosh inside him.
