Sheridan is busy trying to placate the station’s dockworkers, but that’s soon the least of his problems. The Centauri send a new representative to speak for the station’s Narn population, one who seems more willing to work with the Centauri rather than support a fledgling resistance movement. Na’far tells G’Kar that unless he agrees to return to Narn, the families of those one the station will be punished. Sheridan renews his acquantance with Ta’lon, Na’far’s bodyguard, with whom Sheridan escaped from a Strieb ship months before. He must also deal with a peculiar first contact scenario. An alien probe has signalled the station, offering to share advanced knowledge and technology if Earth is advanced enough to deserve it. Along with the offer comes a series of questions. If the station can not answer them, the probe will explode with enough force to destroy Babylon 5.
