In the court of Emperor Londo Mollari, Sheridan is condemned to die. In his cell, he briefly shifts forward in time, but returns to the future where he encounters an aged Delenn, who is also due to be executed. Londo, drunk, reveals that he is under the constant watch of a creature which will alert the surviving minions of the Shadows if he does not act according to their wishes. His watchdog can be subdued by drink, and while free of its influence, Londo allows Delenn and Sheridan to escape. But before they can leave, Sheridan is yanked back through time as Delenn warns him never to go to Z’ha’Dum. He arrives at B4 and helps Sinclair secure the station for its upcoming time journey, but with his time stabilizer still inactive, he disappears again. To make matters worse, Sinclair has aged abruptly, a side effect of his exposure to the tachyon fields surrounding B4 when he visited there before. Attempts to prepare B4 to leap a thousand years into the past run into further problems when Zathras, who is captured and interrogated by both the original Babylon 4 crew, and Sinclair and Garibaldi in 2258. When preparations are finally made, Sheridan is safely retrieved so he can return to his present, but Sinclair must stay aboard Babylon 4 as it vanishes into the past – and both it and its occupant will become the stuff of legends.
