Mayan, renowned Minbari poet and old friend of Delenn, is aboard the station to entertain the Minbari population and enlighten others of Minbari culture, when she is brutally attacked by masked members of the Home Guard, an isolationist terrorist group from Earth whose members seek to flush all alien influnces out of human society. Other violent attacks on non-humans concern and outrage the aliens aboard Babylon 5. One assault leaves Vir’s nephew in a coma. G’Kar stirs up trouble in the name of justice, trying to get the alien residents of Babylon 5 to rise up against their human neighbors, while uncomfortable questions about the influence of the Home Guard trouble Sinclair, who ultimately must take a direct hand in affairs.
