Falling Toward Apotheosis

Babylon 5Worlds continue to fall to the might of the Vorlon fleet, but on the station, Garibaldi grows increasingly frustrated. Sheridan’s return has generated an almost messianic fervor, yet Garibaldi’s return has been met with concern and barely-veiled suspicion. On Centauri Prime, Morden comes to Londo and asks for a Centauri fleet to protect the Shadow presence on the Centauri homeworld. Londo disapproves, and Cartagia backs him up – on the incredible premise that Centauri Prime will serve as his inaugural pyre when the Shadows ascend him from the throne to godhood. Sheridan decides that measures must be taken to secure Babylon 5 from Vorlon attack – so their ambassador must leave the station, by force if necessary. The Vorlon repels a relatively courteous call from Garibaldi and his troops, attempting to remove it from its quarters. Londo contacts Sheridan, hoping that the captain has formulated some plan to repel the Vorlon fleet from Centauri Prime, but Sheridan can offer no guarantees. Lyta lures the Vorlon into open ground, where a combination of electrocution and massive firepower destroys its encounter suit and sets it loose inside the station. Sheridan, who has been carrying the original Kosh inside him since its death, frees Kosh to expel the Vorlon ambassador, and after shooting through the station into space, both Vorlons perish in the struggle. Londo convinces Cartagia to visit Narn and conduct G’Kar’s trial and execution there. And after the battle with the Vorlon ambssador has ended, Sheridan reveals to Delenn the terrible cost of his trip to Z’ha’Dum.
