** The middle seasons had a question associated with each of the two most prominent races of First Ones in the show: "Who are you?" commonly asked by the Vorlons, and "What do you want?" from the Shadows. (When Sheridan asks Kosh "What do you want?" in an early episode, not realizing its significance, the Vorlon angrily tells him, "Never ask that question!") During his NearDeathExperience he meets Lorien (''the'' First One) who has his own questions: "Why are you here?" and "Do you have anything WorthLivingFor?". In "Into the Fire," the younger races throwing off the yoke of the First Ones is emphasized when Sheridan turns their questions around on them: "Who are ''you''?" he asks the Vorlons; "What do ''you'' want?" he puts to the Shadows; [[ArmorPiercingQuestion they are unable to answer]]. And in the final episode, Sheridan meets Lorien once again, who rhetorically asks him, "Who are you? What do you want? Why are you here? Where are you going?" Which are, altogether, a slight recasting of the key questions from Creator/AlfredBester's (no, the writer) ''The Stars My Destination'': "Who are you?" "Where are you from?" "Where do you live?" and "Where are you going?"
