As Sheridan’s interrogation continues, Garibaldi makes his way to the Mars resistance base, trying to convince them that contrary to the ISN reports, he was brainwashed by Bester into betraying the resistance and handing Sheridan over to the authorities. But with tensions running high among the rebels, they simply take Garibaldi hostage until Lyta scans him, proving that his claims about mind alteration are true. Garibaldi, Franklin and Lyta slip into the facility where Sheridan is being held, and Garibaldi uses his newfound popularity among Earthforce loyalists to gain access to the captain, though force is needed to break him out. Meanwhile, Susan has taken Sheridan’s place at the head of the swelling resistance fleet, but finds that her plans for a massive strike on Mars have been discovered by Earthforce. But with some of her support fleet already too close to Mars to abort the mission, Susan proceeds with the attack, and finds out that Earthforce has a new class of destroyer which integrates Earth and Shadow technology. Her fleet succeeds against the overwhelming odds, but Ivanova pays dearly for the victory, leaving Sheridan to resume his command of the resistance fleet.
