The Byron Situation plunges headlong into chaos as Bester, under Earthgov jurisdiction, directs his bloodhounds to run down the violent splinter group of telepaths, who respond by holding medlab hostage! Shocking revelations from Byron finally reveal his ugly backstory, and Garibaldi faces off with Bester, but is neurally blocked from pulling the trigger to end the life of his tormentor. Hostage situations are for losers, so join us for a delightful summer barbecue, this week on Jumpgate!
Byron and his remaining telepaths turtle-up in Brown Sector, repelling any attempt by Lochley's people to cut through. As the remnants of the violent faction ramp up their misguided offensive with weapons theft and neatly-penned graffiti, Sheridan and Delenn ride herd on the ISA council, who are suffering from ever more destructive raids on their shipping by an unknown aggressor. Meanwhile, back on Centauri Prime, Londo and G'Kar have a discussion about Spoo, which leads to a forgotten cell in an unused wing of the palace, where G'Kar's former aide Na'Toth is held in solitary confinement. Lochley does her best John McClane impression, Londo subverts expectations, and Bester is STILL a psychopath! This week on Jumpgate!
The telepath situation charges toward a muddled and violent conclusion under Byron's misguided leadership, as he stands before the ISA and demands a planet for his people, or else he will publicly reveal everyone's porn search history! Meanwhile, Londo and G'Kar face even more layers of treachery and conspiracy on Centauri Prime, when a familiar and mysterious alien saves Londo's life. Byron is blind, Delenn truly sees, and the Drakh are conveniently telekinetic, this week on Jumpgate!
On the evening of a Brakiri comet, a section of the station becomes the otherworldly stage for communion with the souls now lost to Mollari, Lennier, Lochley, and Garibaldi. Meanwhile, Sheridan and Delenn host intergalactic comedians Reebo and Zooty (played by the inimitable Penn and Teller). Join us for one of the best episodes of the series, penned by none other than the legendary Neil Gaiman! May the Comet bring you wisdom, this week on Jumpgate!
More telepaths, more problems, this time with a talented telekinetic, whose arrival (and the consequent chaos in Downbelow) throws Bryon squarely into Zach's sites. As the attrition between the telepath colony and their aggressors mounts, Byron is desperate to quell the violence. But the secrets hidden deep within Lyta's Vorlon-enhanced brain might destroy his pacifism forever. Meanwhile, Franklin discovers yet another species' genocide, this time in the history of the Hyak, and a genetic secret that could doom them all. We're topless (from the back), this week on Jumpgate!
Bester returns to B5 under the official sanction of Earthforce to bring in Byron and his followers, which forces Lyta to choose sides, and sets Garibaldi and Lochley at even greater odds. Londo once again dodges an attempt on his life, and G'Kar is assigned to be his offical ISA bodyguard at the Centaurm, much to the delight of Delenn and G'kar. But what's really important is Byron's sense of decor: part vampire, part poet... ALL Byron. Will Lyta fall under the spell of his poetry? Will Londo get the aisle seat? Will we FINALLY find out what is up between Sheridan and Lochley? Find out this week on Jumpgate!
In the company of their instructors, two Rangers-in-Training visit Babylon 5, and quickly become emroiled in a schoolyard smackdown of yet another crime boss who is hilariously unprepared for how badass the Good Guys have become. Meanwhile, Lochley has to deal with a paranoid Garibaldi, a suspicious Delenn, and the legacy of... um... SOMETHING... between her and Sheridan. We have yet to determine something the Pak'Ma'Ra WON'T eat, this week on Jumpgate!
Bo and Mack aren't your average maintenance techs. For almost 5 years now, they've kept B5 spinning, despite periodic plagues, political upheaval, and (ugh!) bugs. They've got a lot to say about our heroes, and we're along for the ride, as they encounter Lochley, Garibaldi, Sheridan and Delenn, all struggling to repel an opportunistic military incursion of an unknown alien race from beyond the Rim. Eh, whatever... just another day on Babylon 5. Join us this week as we ask: So, what'd you bring for lunch today?
Border raids in Drazi space threaten the Enfili, a peaceful race who send a dying ranger to B5 to ask for protection from the new Interstellar Alliance. But forging the alliance was never going to be easy for Sheridan and Delenn, not even with the musical words of G'Kar the Warrior Poet. Garibaldi seeks help from Byron and Comapny, eventually sending Lyta to get the job done. Are the Telepaths a cult? Do Drazi actually sweat under pressure? Be quiet, my muse is speaking to me! This week on Jumpgate!
While sampling some newly-imported Brivari, Londo collapses in a massive hearts-attack. Meanwhile, Lennier decides to tackle his unrequited love for Delenn in the only way he knows how: to risk death and dismemberment in the Rangers. As the cast maintains a death watch over an unstable Mollari in medlab, the Ambassador himself does emotional battle with the righteous forces of his own conscience. Join us as we hear Andy quote Miracle Max - "Hey! What's so important? What you got here that's worth living for!?" - This week on Jumpgate!
