    "Medlab's quiet these days. The League of non-aligned worlds has broken up and everyone's going back to their homeworlds to prepare for the next stage of war. We know the enemy is gonna strike back. Rumour has it that this time's gonna be the last time. This time they're gonna end it. All we can do now is wait for the other shoe to drop or try and find something useful to do before the end. Right now, short of hand holding, or sympathetic ear, I can't think of one damn thing."

We stumbled at the death of the president, the war, and on and on. And when you stumble a lot, you .. you start looking at your feet. We have to make people .. lift their eyes back to the horizon and see the line of ancestors behind us saying, 'Make my life have meaning.' And to our inheritors before us saying, 'Create the world we will live in.' I mean, we're not just holding jobs and having dinner. We are in the process of building the future. That's what Babylon 5 is all about. Only by making people understand that can we hope to create a better world for ourselves and our posterity."

They didn't want to go, they didn't want to get blown out of the sky and leave B5 defenseless, and they sure as hell didn't want to die. But they did it because Sheridan told them to do it, and because it was right."

After that, maybe I'll try pacing fro and to, just for the kick of it. There's the view. Granted it's not quite the same as if you were outside. For someone with over 100 hours of combat flying experience.

The fiery trial though which we pass will light us down in honor or dishonor to the last generation. We shall nobly save or meanly lose our last, best hope of Earth.'"
