Londo is visited by a Centauri political plotter named Refa who, having heard of Londo’s impressive feat at quadrant 37, wants to enlist the ambassador’s help in a possible coup to claim power on Centauri Prime. As Refa leaves the station, a group of human technomages arrives, “magicians” who use science and technology to achieve the illusion of magic. They are simply stopping off at B5 en route to a further destination, anticipating that they will be endangered by a coming apocalypse. Londo tries to gain an audience with them, as the previous Centauri Emperor was seen in the company of such people prior to his appointment. Ivanova is also awarded a promotion to full commander, and her first diplomatic duty in that office challenges her to stop a deadly game of hide-and-seek among the Drazi. She could use Garibaldi’s help – but he’s not sure if he wants to remain in charge of security.
