* {{Bigger Bad}}s: The Thirdspace aliens. The Vorlons were terrified of them. It took the combined efforts of all the first ones ''including'' the Shadows just to drive them out of our universe, which is about all you need to know.

*** One possible explanation: businesses couldn't legally hire her but verifying testimony in a personal dispute between relatives may not require such rigor, or the brothers were so exasperated they didn't care.

Added DiffLines:

** Lyta is shown getting regular work from two men despite later episodes making it clear that she's had no income since the Vorlons left as nobody will hire her since she's a rogue.

* ArtifactOfDoom

to:

* ArtifactOfDoomAnotherDimension: Thirdspace is an entirely separate universe, and nothing less than Vorlon-level technology can access it.
* ArtifactOfDoom: The Vorlon portal. Even before it is opened the Thirdspace aliens can use it to extend their telepathic influence into the universe and gain control over people they need to actually open the portal.


Added DiffLines:

* InterdimensionalTravelDevice: The Vorlon gateway. They believed that it would allow them to AscendToAHigherPlaneOfExistence. Instead it just opened a path to a hellish other dimension.

** Where most characters would have suffered a HeroicBSOD, or at least an OhCrap moment, Ivanova merely expresses one of these when she realizes that [[spoiler: an entire fleet of massive Thirdspace alien warships]] is about to come out of the artifact. She seems less worried and more ''exasperated'' that the universe has found a new way to torment her. Obviously overlaps with ThisIsGonnaSuck.

Added DiffLines:

* LovecraftLite: Mind-altering aliens from another dimension who the heroes have to deal with because some of [[SufficientlyAdvancedAliens The First Ones]] got a bit [[AGodAmI overly confident of themselves]] and [[NeglectfulPrecursors failed to clean up after themselves.]]

** IPX deserves special mention, as considering they were the ones who woke up the Shadows on Za'ha'dum, this is now the ''second'' race of horribly evil aliens who want to cause death and destruction on a massive scale that they've managed to wake up. Nice going, guys.

* ContinuitySnarl: This film simply does not fit anywhere in the show, continuity-wise, which is unusual for a MythArc show like ''Series/BabylonFive''. Various issues include the presence and absence of particular characters, Zack Allen's wearing of the new uniform, and the destruction of an entire fighter squadron just not lining up at all in the relatively narrow space of episodes in the fourth season that the film is supposed to fit into, between the Shadow War and the Earth Alliance Civil War.

* AlienGeometries: Once the Artifact activates, a jump point into Thirdspace appears in the middle of it. A shot of the side of the artifact establishes that this jump point does not take up any space in the third dimension. See also BiggerOnTheInside.



* {{Bigger Bad}}s: The Thirdspace insectoids. The Vorlons were terrified of them. It took the combined efforts of all the first ones ''including'' the Shadows just to drive them out of our universe, which is about all you need to know.

* BiggerOnTheInside: The Artifact is, as multiple shots demonstrate, tall and broad, but not very deep. Once it opens, [[spoiler: and Sheridan goes inside of it]], it is shown to be vast and cavernous.
