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

. Very similar in both their rationales for doing what they did and also in what others thought of them.
