Babylon 5: The Quality of Mercy

The station doctor, is found running a free clinic aboard Babylon 5 but notice how his patients are decreasing in numbers. Turns out that a "healer" is residing on the station, running an unauthorised clinic, that Dr Franklin suspect is fraudulent. A prisoner is found guilty of murder and awaits sentencing. The options are slim, and Tahlia reluctantly agrees to use her powers to wipe his brain and reprogram him. Meanwhile, Londo recieves word from the emperor's aid, requesting Londo to keep an "upper hand" and forge useful alliances. In lieu of this, Londo takes ambassador Delenn's aid, Lennier, under his wings to experience the station, the "Londo way".
