Babylon 5 Season 3, Episode 3. Written by J. Michael Straczynski, directed by David Eagle. Originally aired on November 20, 1995.

Primary Plot: The Centauri send a glorified puppet to take control of the Narn population aboard station, replacing G'Kar.

Secondary Plot: Sheridan and Ivanova deal with the transport association.

Tertiary Plot: Garibaldi suspects Dr. Franklin is taking stims to stay awake.

Fourth Plot: An alien probe arrives at the station and threatens to explode if over 500 scientific questions aren't answered correctly.

Fifth Plot: Londo conspires with Delenn to send Vir to Minbar in order for him to become the new Centauri representative there.

Commentary: It's yer typical "day in the life of the crew" that every science fiction show seems to have one or two of, hence the title of the episode. The only plot element worth nothing...Na'Far, the figurehead sent to replace G'Kar, immediately made me think of Vichy France during World War II. Very similar in both their rationales for doing what they did and also in what others thought of them.
