Change is the order of the day aboard Babylon 5 as it accepts its new role as capitol of the Interstellar Alliance. Sheridan prepares for his inauguration as his handpicked replacement, Earthforce Captain Elizabeth Lochley, arrives. Sheridan pointedly ignores her role in Earth’s civil war – but others in the crew are not so quick to overlook the past. A group of telepaths approaches Lochley, seeking sanctuary from Psi Corps and a place to call home. Garibaldi, now a civilian, hovers over Zack and clashes with the new captain on matters of security. And G’Kar must create two of the first symbols of the new alliance – an oath of office and a declaration of principles. The preparations may be for nothing, however – a would-be assassin stalks B5, ready to make Sheridan pay for his actions during the war.
