By Any Means Necessary

Babylon 5When an impatient Narn ship captain panics, he causes a catastrophic head-on collision in the station’s spacedock, destroying his ship and killing some of the dockworkers. The spokesperson for the laborers refuses any of Sinclair’s proposed solutions to their protests, and the word comes through from Earth – since the workers are under a government contract, any strike they declare is illegal and can be remedied under the Rush Act, which empowers the government to force laborers to continue their work or face arrest. A labor negotiator is sent in from Earth in hopes that the situation can be brought to a satisfactory resolution, but he seems all too ready to have Garibaldi’s security forces carry out the Rush Act. Sinclair decides to take matters into his own hands with his own unique and risky interpretation of the Rush Act.
