The disappearance of a maintenance worker on the station goes largely unnoticed as Sheridan initiates an open call for telepaths to assist in the offensive against the Shadows. On Minbar, Delenn becomes the natural successor to lead the Rangers after Sinclair’s one-way trip into the past, but Neroon of the warrior caste opposes Delenn’s ascension. He demands that the warrior caste should lead the Rangers, and vows to stop Delenn from assuming command at any cost. Delenn forbids Lennier to speak of the threat to any of the station’s command staff, so Lennier confides his fears to Marcus. Garibaldi investigates the missing maintenance worker, only to find an entire floor of the grey sector is unaccounted for. He forces his way into grey 17, but is trapped there with a handful of eccentrics led by the constantly pontificating Jeremiah. Also caged in grey 17 is an alien menace which has killed untold numbers of victims – and Jeremiah insists that Garibaldi’s only escape is to die a pure and noble death, an option that the security chief does not plan on examining.
