In the aftermath of the separation from Earth, the command staff have a number of problems, first and foremost rooting out Nightwatch. Their communications are also down to prevent Earth from trying to remotely take control of the station.

Sheridan, Ivanova and Garibaldi are in the process of restarting the computer and replacing all the command codes, when Delenn comes in wanting to talk to Sheridan. She tells him of the ceremony, and that they all need the be "reborn" into their new lives, puttign their old selves behind them.

The two from earlier, Boggs and Sniper, are meeting with the rest of the Nightwatch. They've just gotten orders from home. Their priority is the Minbari, driving them off will enable Earth forces to come in and retake the station. To do this, they're targeting Delenn.

Delenn finds Marcus in a shady den and tries to convince him to take part in the ceremony, but he's stragely reluctant.

Garibaldi restarts the computer, but when it comes back up and starts talking in a sarcastic, obnoxious tone. Garibaldi remembers that they once tried to install an artificial intelligence, but they shut it down right away. Now they seem to have reactivated it.

As they wait Delenn talks to Marcus, and he admits that he can't give anything up because he doesn't have anything left. His brother had joined the Rangers and tried to warn him of the Shadows, but he wouldn't listen. When the shadows came he lost his entire life, then went off to find the Rangers and finish what his brther had started. Delenn tell him that his pain is what he must give up, the guilt at [[SurvivorsGuilt being alive]].

As the ship docks, Marcus goes off the let Security know, and Delnn goes to meet the captain, Lennan. As she does, Nightwatch ambushes them.

Garibaldi is listening to Sparky, the A.I., complaining when Ivanova calls with word of the kidnapping. Delenn and Lennan, along with one of his aides, are being held somewhere in an abandoned area as their captors make contact with Sheridan. They demand the Minbari ships leave within six hours or they'll kill the hostages. To prove their point they kill Lennan's aid. Marcus storms off.

Back in the downbelow bar, Marcus approaches a group of lowlifes and deals himself into their game. He asks what they know but they aren't inclined to tell him anything, and ask why they should bother.

Garibaldi restarts the computer, but when it comes back up and starts taling in a sarcastic, obnoxious tone. Garibaldi remembers that they once tried to install an aritifical intelligence, but they shut it down right away. Now they seem to have reactivated it.

Delenn and Lennier meet with Londo and G'Kar to invite them to the rebirth ceremony, but neither are inclinced to come. Londo is not interested in the aspects of the ceremony (telling someone a great secret and giving up something of great value), and G'Kar is too busy helping the Narns get adjusted to their new roles. Marcus thinks they should just give it up, nut Delenn is determined. Lennier then reminds her that one of the captains is coming aboard and she asks Marcus to come with her to the docking bay.
