Within three days of the president’s assassination, Sinclair has been recalled to Earth. Captain John Sheridan of the starship Agamemnon is assigned to take command of B5, which is visited by Kalain, commander of the Minbari warship Trigati which has been missing since its crew defied the Grey Council’s sudden cease-fire order that ended the Earth-Minbari War over a decade before. The Minbari protest the choice of Sheridan to command the station due to his service in the war, and Grey Council envoy Hedronn warns Sheridan of Kalain’s presence and hostile intent. As it turns out, Kalain has made his way to Delenn’s quarters to kill the cocooned ambassador, but is apprehended before he can do any harm. Lennier reveals the reason for Sinclair’s recall and the end of the war: the Grey Council believes that the noblest souls of dead Minbari are now being reincarnated as the newest generations of humans, Sinclair included. The Trigati emerges through the jump gate, ready to attack if Kalain is not released from custody. Sheridan, who has been described by nearly every Minbari so far as a dark omen for the hope of peace, faces the prospect of renewed bloodshed on his hands.
