    From the script book script:

    We again PUSH IN on the sanctuary, but this time Ivanova stands
    in the window, alone.

    ANCHOR (V.O.)
    -- in one of his last acts as an
    officer in Earthforce, Captain John
    Sheridan promoted Commander Susan
    Ivanova to the rank of full Captain,
    a promotion ratified today by
    military authorities Earthside.

    As Ivanova looks out into the stars.

    ANCHOR (V.O.)
    Captain Ivanova has been offered a
    choice between permanent duty as
    commanding officer aboard Babylon
    5, or being given command of one of
    the new Warlock class destroyers.
    In a statement issued a few hours
    ago, Captain Ivanova said only, "I
    need to decide where my heart belongs
    before the rest of me can follow."
    "As empathy spreads, civilization spreads. As empathy contracts, civilization we're seeing now.
