She is informed that Sinclair isn't going to return, the Minbari has requested his presence, and he is to be replaced by capt John Sheridan of the Agamemnon. He will start his work at the station being goaded into initiating a battle with a Minbari warship. Delenn is in a mysterious cocoon, and there would seem that the Minbari and humans have more in common than what has previously been let on.
