Several years after the end of the Great War (detailed in the main Babylon 5 TV series) the former servants of the now-exiled Shadows attemp...更多>
Galen: Who are you? Gideon: Captain Matthew Gideon. Galen: What do you want? Gideon: To find a cure for the Drakh plague before it wipes out all life on Earth. Galen: Where are you going? Gideon: Anywhere I have to. Galen: Who do you serve, and who do you trust? [silence] Galen: Who do you serve, and who do you trust? Gideon: I don't know. Galen: Then I will go with you. Gideon: Why me? There are others just as qualified. Senator McQuate: During your time captaining an Explorer-class vessel you've come across more new alien lifeforms than anyone else in the Fleet. There are half a dozen captains riding Explorer ships; the rest are either too old or too cautious. You're a dangerous man when you want to be, Captain, and right now we need a dangerous man. Senator McQuate: You know, Captain, folks think there might have been life on Mars once. If they did exist, they left no sign. We'll never know who they were or what they did, what songs they sang, what stories they told. Mars is a dead world. I can't imagine that happening to the Earth in a few years. I can't imagine that happening at all. Gideon: Just so we're clear: once we go, this is my command. I'll do whatever's necessary. If that means turning the entire galaxy upside down and shaking its pockets to see what falls out, that's what I'll do. I'm not subtle, I'm not pretty, and I'll piss off a helluva lot of people along the way, but I'll get the job done. Captain Matthew Gideon: [Galen has led Excaliber on a wild goose chase] Now will you tell me what's going on? Galen: Her name was Isabelle and she was the best of us. Every technomage knows the fourteen words to make someone fall in love with you forever. But she only needed one. Captain Matthew Gideon: What word? Galen: "Hello." Gideon: I thought you said you never hold a grudge. Galen: Well, I don't. I have no surviving enemies... at all. Elizabeth Lochley: Is there anything you can tell me? Gideon: Never eat anything bigger than your head. Never shoot pool at a place called Pap's. Never eat food at a place called Mom's. The mission is classified, Captain.
: When you have reached the end of the road, then you can decide, whether to go to the left or to the right, to fire or to water. If you make those decisions before you have even set foot upon the road, it will take you no where... except to a bad end. Gideon: Refresh me, Lieutenant. How did we get into the middle of this again? John Matheson: I believe it was an act of mercy, sir. Gideon: Remind me never to do that again. John Matheson: Aye, sir. No good deed goes unpunished. Gideon: I'll have that embroidered on a sampler when we have time. Elizabeth Lochley: Do you know what you are? Gideon: Ruggedly handsome? Elizabeth Lochley: A control freak! Gideon: Can't I be both? Technomage's Avatar: Our order says many things; does few, believes in fewer still. Dureena Nafeel: Look, I don't like having to trust anyone because I'm always disappointed. But just once I'd like to know that I could actually trust someone, that for at least one person everything wasn't about money or power. Captain Matthew Gideon: That's a benefit? Dureena Nafeel: For me it could be. Dureena Nafeel: When will you be back? Galen: In the fullness of time - expect me when you see me. Durkani: It doesn't matter if they believe us. Sooner or later the truth's going to come out. The truth is... Kendarr: Out of fashion. John Matheson: The more you make a big deal out of denying something, the more people think it must be true. Galen: Never contradict a technomage when he's saving your life... again. Kendarr: The truth has never been in anyone's best interests. Galen: There is always hope. Only because it's the one thing that no one has figured out how to kill yet. Trace Miller: Is that a challenge, Max? Max Eilerson: Are you up to it? Trace Miller: Up to whatever you can dish out. Dureena Nafeel: Gods, I am drowning in testosterone. Max Eilerson: Well, luckily for you, you're equipped with flotation devices. Captain Matthew Gideon: You cheated! Elizabeth Lochley: Absolutely. Captain Matthew Gideon: I like that! Captain Matthew Gideon:
I can see every detail of the Earth's surface as clearly as we're seeing it now. But after my father died, I tried to remember his face, but it always slipped away from me. Why is that I wonder.
