Babylon 5 Season 1, Episode 7. Written by D.C. Fontana, directed by Richard Compton. Originally aired on March 9, 1994.

Primary Plot: The Homeguard, a radical pro-Earth group, starts attacking aliens aboard B5--including an old friend of Delenn's.

Secondary Plot: Two young Centauri lovers seek Londo's protection.

Tertiary Plot: One of Ivanova's old lovers, Malcolm Biggs, arrives aboard station.

Commentary: A nearly worthless episode. It introduces the Homeguard, a radical pro-Earth group, but that plotline gets dropped at the beginning of the second season anyway. The episode does have Danica McKellar (WINNIE COOPER!!) in it though.

The name of the episode, "The War Prayer", is a reference to an anti-war essay of the same name written by Mark Twain in 1905. Lometa's excellent writeup has much more information about the original piece.
