Product Description

From the Back Cover

INTO TOMORROW. Cleared for final approach: the end of the Babylon 5 series. OBJECTS AT REST--Parting is bittersweet sorrow: Sheridan (Bruce Boxleitner) and Delenn (Mira Furlan) journey to Minbar, the new base of the Interstellar Alliance. But the era of peace is not without singular acts of betrayal. Lennier (Bill Mumy) falls prey to his feelings for Delenn. And Mollari (Peter Jurasik), unable to resist the alien power controlling him, presents a gift that may in time unleash forces of doom. SLEEPING IN LIGHT--The end was prophesied, inevitable. Yet there's time enough for Sheridan to meet with friends who helped create the future...and for one last visit to the now--abandoned way station that became a symbol for peace: Babylon 5.

The Babylon 5 experience cannot be adequately put into words, but I'll try.
This unique SF TV show from the '90s combines action, romance, political intrigue, comedy, religion, space exploration, and computer-generated special effects in a ground-breaking mix that makes obsessive fans out of anyone who appreciates good story-telling, not just sci-fi.
The idea for B5 was shopped around for several years before it was snapped up by a fledgling network of independent TV stations called "PTEN." By this time "Star Trek: Deep Space 9" had been on the air, and it unfortunately made uninitiated viewers think B5 was a ripoff, rather than the other way around. B5 is to ST what steak is to a Big Mac; certainly you can enjoy both, but the B5 experience is far more memorable overall.
B5 was envisioned as a five-year series, a show that told a story from the beginning to the middle to the end. A number of films and books have grown up around the main story shown in the TV series, and that's a good thing too. It's charming to watch the B5 makers learn their craft, as the pilot film "The Gathering" and the first season show production and makeup that evolve as the years go on, with each season of the show having its own focus.
The characters grow up, rather than staying essentially unchanged at the core, which is what you get with a typical TV series, ST or otherwise. This is key, as the events of the series affect their lives in major ways.
"Objects at Rest" and "Sleeping in Light" are the final two episodes of the series, and brilliantly bring the whole thing to a satisfying, emotional conclusion.

This tape contains the last two episodes ever of Babylon 5. In "Objects at Rest," change is coming to the station. Franklin is leaving for Earth and his new job, Garibaldi is leaving for Mars, and Sheridan and Delenn leave for the new Alliance headquarters on Minbar. But all does not go smoothly as Lennier makes a huge mistake and Londo arrives with a suspicious gift for Delenn's baby.
"Sleeping in the Light" tells the story of Sheridan's last few days. Realizing that his time is up, he sends for his dear friends and reminisces before heading into space for one last flight.
While these two episodes don't tie up all the loose ends (In fact, they raise some questions.), they are a powerful conclusion to this series. I've watched them several times, and I've been moved by the emotions so excellently captured by everyone involved. JMS's scripts are some of his best, and the acting is flawless.
Over the run of the series, I had come to care for these characters as friends. It was sad to see their story end. And while it may not have had the closure I normally like, there is enough closure for a feeling of completion. These two top-notch hours of television will move any fan of the series.

I can't recall a television series end with the great writing and acting I found in Babylon 5's final episodes. Parting is indeed a bittersweet sorrow; I doubt I have been more emotionally drained by the events chronicled in both episodes. In "Objects at Rest" President Sheridan (Bruce Boxleitner) and Delenn (Mira Furlon) bid farewell to Babylon 5, and head to Minbar's city of Tuzanor, the new headquarters of the Interstellar Alliance, aboard a Ranger White Star. En route, Lennier commits the act of betrayal prophesized by Mr. Morden (Eric Wasser) in the Season 5 episode "Day of the Dead". On Minbar, Sheridan and Delenn are greeted by Centauri emperor Mollari (Peter Jurasik), who speaks of his friendship, while leaving them with a deadly gift for their unborn child. In "Sleeping in Light", twenty years have passed since the end of the Shadow War and the formation of the Interstellar Alliance. Sheridan knows the end is near; he summons his surviving friends to visit him on Minbar for one last time. And so too is it the end for space station Babylon 5; fittingly enough, the station's lights are turned off by a technician played by series creator J. Michael Straczynski. "Sleeping in Light" is one of the finest affirmations of love and friendship I have seen on television; indeed, it is a splendid conclusion to the Babylon 5 saga.

By Eran Cohen on April 25 2001
The first time I watched these episodes was more than two years ago. Occasionally ,I take the time to rerun it on the video to reminiscence, reflect, and to see things in a wider perspective, this two episodes give.
This first of two, "Objects at Rest" ,sums up the five years saga; after all the wars, peace treaties, happiness ,sadness, blood and tears, it's time for the leading characters to move on.
Sheridan and Delen are heading for Minbar to the new home base of the Alliance. G'kar and Lita are to explore together the galaxy. Garibaldi and Liz are leaving for Mars, sto marry and manage Edgar's Enterprises. Lando has already left permanently, in an earlier episode to face the darkest destiny of them all. Almost none of the familiar and loved figures stay. There is a distinct feeling of ending. Things are never going to be the same around here.

Babylon 5 did matter(besides from the Babylon universe). It touched the hearts of so many, which will miss dearly all that this TV series represented. Up till now, I feel this end symbolized not only the finale of a major Sci fi show, but also the end of the last vintage television production. .I haven't seen anything that even gets close to the standard this series had set.
I cannot end reviewing this episode without mentioning the monologue of wisdom John J. Sheridan decides to record for his son. This is one of the best I've ever heard.

"Sleeping in Light ", evidently one of the most engaging and saddening episodes of all times, stands alone as a memoriam to the entire saga and to all it meant for so many. I shade many tears watching it. You just cannot stay indifferent to it. The episode was clearly designed to extract an emotional response from the loyal viewer, accomplishing it thoroughly.
