A Minbari war cruiser arrives at B5 bringing the body of Brammer, a legendary Minbari general and one of the Minbari’s heroes of the Battle of the Line. Garibaldi expresses concerns that the tour could be a prelude to a new surge of Minbari hostility. Elsewhere on B5, a 12-year-old orphan is caught trying to steal food in the Zocalo, but when she suddenly crumples to the ground clutching her head, Ivanova puts her under arrest, and at once a feud begins between the first officer and Talia, who reveals that the girl is an emerging telepath who should be trained by the Psi Corps, to which Ivanova objects in the strongest possible terms. When the body of Brammer is brought to be viewed by the Minbari residents of B5, the casket is found to be missing, a horrible revelation that has Minbari representative Neroon – Brammer’s devoted follower and first officer on the Line – threatening to re-ignite the Earth-Minbari War, with the first battle certain to take place at B5.
