Babylon 5

What’s a solidier to do when faced with illegal orders and a government that isn’t listening?

Well, if you’re John Sheridan, you secede and declare your independence.  When that brings your own people down on you in a civil war, you have no choice but to fight to defend all that you hold dear.

And, just when it looks like you’re gonna survive, you’ve fought the good fight and you somehow managed to pull your collective asses out of the fire, reinforcements arrive.  For the other side.

Now what?

Well, you could get lucky and have some friends show up.

Delenn:  “This is ambassador Delenn of the Minbari. Babylon 5 is under our protection, withdraw or be destroyed.”

Earth Captain: “Negative. We have authority here. Do not force us to engage your ships.”

Delenn:  “Why not? Only one human captain has ever survived battle with a Minbari-fleet. He is behind me, you are in front of me. If you value your lives, be somewhere else.”
