On the advice of Delenn and Draal, Sheridan is preparing to embark on a risky quest to enlist the help of the First Ones, whose powers will be vital in the coming Shadow War. But when a “political officer” arrives from Earth, on a mission to ensure that everything the crew says and does is in line with President Clark’s rewritten history of recent events on Earth, Sheridan is forced to stay on the station. Ivanova goes to Epsilon 3 and uses the Great Machine to look for the First Ones, but also stumbles upon definitive evidence that President Clark was instrumental in the death of his predecessor. Sheridan discovers that the station’s new liaison to Earth is willing to use any means necessary to secure his cooperation, while Ivanova and Marcus must use any means possible to gain the trust of the First Ones at Sigma 957.
