Babylon 5 Season 1, Episode 2. Written by J. Michael Straczynski, directed by Jim Johnston. Originally aired on February 2, 1994.

Primary Plot: A renegade Soul Hunter, a mysterious race that steals people's souls when they die, comes aboard the station, causing mass hysteria among the alien population.

Commentary: Not a very good episode. It has little direct bearing on the story arc, with the exception of one line spoken by the Soul Hunter ("Don't you realize they're using you? They're using you!!") to Sinclair. He's referring to the Minbari using Sinclair to help in the war to come, although no one realizes this until much later (and it doesn't matter anyway, as Michael O'Hare, who played Sinclair, left the show after the first season).
