The explorer ship Cortez puts in at Babylon 5, giving Sheridan the chance to reminisce with old friend Captain Maynard. The Cortez crew, having spent more time in hyperspace than just about anyone else, fields questions from Ivanova and Keffler about rumors that an unknown lifeform has taken up residence in the uninhabitable realm of hyperspace. Maynard and his crew admit to having seen something out there, though they don’t know exactly what. The Cortez departs en route to the rim, but something goes disastrously wrong and the ship loses her lock on the jump point needed to emerge from hyperspace ever again.
