A lungo ritenuta perduta, Babylon 4 ricompare dal nulla nel Settore 14. Sinclair e Garibaldi iniziano una missione di soccorso per trarre in salvo l'equipaggio della stazione. Nel frattempo, Delenn si incontra con gli altri membri del Consiglio dei Grigi.
Ivanova: God, I hate mornings.
Londo: We noticed. Personally I find it the best part of the day.
Delenn: Some things one must do alone.
Ivanova: B4 as in Babylon 4?
Garibaldi: This is nuts. The station just doesn't disappear and reappear four years later like some kind of a flying Dutchman.
Garibaldi (a Sinclair): You're so serious all the time. Not every conversation has to be the end of the world as we know it.
Sinclair: Fasten, then zip. You?
Garibaldi: Fasten, zip!
Sinclair: How much longer?
Garibaldi: One hour, fifty-seven minutes. Wanna talk socks?
Garibaldi: It's just a question.
Sinclair: I'm not having this conversation.
Delenn: Summoned, I come. In Valen's name I take the place that has been prepared for me. I'm Grey. I stand between the candle and the star. We are Grey. We stand between the darkness... and the light.
Delenn: My calling is to serve, not to lead.
Zathras: Oh... not the One, no.
Sinclair: Not the one what?
Zathras: Not the One. Won't talk. Can't talk. Not the One. They told me, they did. Zathras listens, he does, yes. Zathras listens and does what he's told.
Garibaldi: Zathras tells, maybe we don't break Zathras' scrawny little neck.
Zathras: Great War. Terrible War. There is much killings. Everyone fighting. A great darkness. It is the end of everything. Zathras warned but, oh no, no one listened to poor Zathras, no. Great War, but great hope of peace. Need place. Place to gather, to fight, to organize.
Sinclair: You need Babylon 4 as a base of operations in a war, is that it?
Zathras: To help save galaxy, on the side of light. So they tell me. Must have. Or it is the end of all. The One leads us. The One tells us to go, we go. We live for the One. We would die for the One. We pull this place through time to save us all.
Zathras: Much apologizing. Mathematics not Zathras' skill.
Delenn (sugli Umani): They do not seek conformity. They do not surrender. Out of their differences comes symmetry, the unique capacity to fight against impossible odds. Hurt them... and they only come back stronger. The passions we deplore have taken them to their place in the stars and will propel them to a great destiny. Their only weakness is that they do not recognize their own greatness. They forget that they have come to this place through two million years of evolution, struggle and blood. That they are better than they think, and nobler than they know. They carry within them the capacity to walk among the stars, like giants. They are the future. And we have much to learn from them.
Krantz: What happens to you when it jumps?
Zathras: Zathras die. But Zathras die for cause. Maybe stop great war. Maybe Zathras great hero. Maybe build statue to Zathras. Others come, remember Zathras.
Zathras: Zathras not of this time. You take, Zathras die. You leave, Zathras die. Either way, it is bad for Zathras.
Zathras: Zathras does not want to die. But if it is the only way, then Zathras dies. It is life.
Zathras (a Sinclair): Go. You must. Listen to Zathras. You have a destiny. Go. Please. Go for Zathras.
Ivanova: Great, and I missed it.
Sinclair: Not necessarily, Lt.Commander. We don't know where Babylon 4 was going, or when it was going. Who knows, it may show up again sometime.
Ivanova: Well, if it does, this time I'm going and Garibaldi is staying here.
