Babylon 5 Season 2, Episode 4. Written by D.C. Fontana, directed by Jim Johnston. Originally aired on November 23, 1994.

Primary Plot: An Explorer-class starship visits the station for a brief layover.

Secondary Plot: Dr. Franklin tries to get the command staff on better diets.

Commentary: The episode mainly serves to give some more familiarity with the Shadow ships. Aside from that, it fleshes out the Sheridan character a bit and establishes that he's not happy just being a desk jockey. That's a familiar idea from the original Star Trek series, where Kirk is miserable anywhere but at the helm of a starship. This episode was in fact written by D.C. Fontana, who wrote many of the original Star Trek episodes.
