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.

Despite my American cousin's fannish fawnings over this episode, I have to reluctantly admit that this episode was truly superb. Of course, after the disaster that was season 5 of the show, an episode like this would have stood out anyway.
Unlike one of these other reviews, I won't give away every last little detail on the episode. Let's just say that it was really satisfying to see an end, of sorts, to the show; and to see how the characters might have developed in the 20-ish years since the end of series 5.
It's rare indeed to see episodic television have a swansong episode, let alone with detailed characters like those in this show. It's not giving anything away to say that the episode was, for me, almost overwhelmed with a sense of regret, sadness and the inevitable march of time; and yet who could not have been moved by the final minutes of this episode, and consequently the whole show?
Even a cynical Irishman like myself was moved to sadness - just a little! - by the end. You will be too.

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.

There has never been a series like Babylon 5 - and probably there will never be another, as long as I live. I was deeply affected by the story and the characters. A story of light and dark, joy and pain, love and hate - all in a scifi series. Not a small wonder, rather a great one, I think. Four seasons of B 5 were great. The fifth was a mess, with some exceptions. Perhaps it is of symbolic value that the last episode was produced at the end of season 4 but broadcast at the end of season 5. One thinks of a time long lost and forgotten, of dreams long gone watching Sleeping in Light. It's wonderful, and it hurts. I did not cry when I watched Titanic. I did not cry watching E.T. But I cried at the parting of Sheridan and the fiery demise of the space station. It was sad, but in a strangely positive way I cannot describe. It was a feeling that I was on my own now but that I grew stronger out of it. In fact, Sleeping in Light has't got a proper story. But it works. It changed me deeply.

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.
