Rumors, Bargains and Lies

Babylon 5Londo and G’Kar are persuaded by Sheridan to permit the White Star fleet to patrol their borders. Fearing that the leaders of the non-aligned worlds will balk at the idea of his fleet flying along their territory, Sheridan concocts a convoluted scheme to hint at suspicious happenings along the aliens’ borders but withholding his help until it is requested. En route to Minbar to deal with political upheavals that have finally erupted into civil war, Delenn vows to end the conflict single-handedly. She believes that her disbanding the Grey Council has left Minbar without leadership, and the resulting conflicts are her fault. Neroon of the warrior caste meets with her, and despite his past disagreements with her, he agrees with Delenn that they will reach an amicable solution which will not require either of their castes to surrender. But Delenn’s own religious caste followers believe that her private meetings with Neroon will result in a betrayal of her own people, and plan to ritually sacrifice themselves and anyone else on board to prevent it. And on the station, Sheridan’s cunning plan could backfire unless he stoops just low enough to plant some the right information in the right places. Neroon, departing to return to his fellow warriors, intends to make sure than Delenn’s peace plan backfires.
