Two shady individuals arrives from Earth and begin asking questions about Sinclair and the station’s command staff. Though they start out under the pretense of being corporate investigators, Garibaldi discovers that they are an Earth Force Colonel and a Psi Corps telepath. Colonel Ben Zayn cuts to the chase very quickly – there is something wrong with B5’s command crew, and he wants all of them to submit to his companion’s mind scan so he can find out what. Ivanova objects strongly to the participation of a telepath, even to the point of submitting her resignation to Sinclair, who has found a legal loophole that prevents Ben Zayn from forcing anyone to do anything without a formal inquiry tantamount to court-martial. But when Sinclair calls this bluff, he finds out that Ben Zayn is willing to break all the rules when the colonel calls a formal inquiry on the entire command crew. His real mission – to put himself of command of B5, an assignment he was passed over for, and he has the help of a high-ranking memer of Psi Corps who Sinclair once defeated.
