List of Babylon 5 episodes

Grey 17 Is Missing is an episode from the third season of the science-fiction television series Babylon 5.


Garibaldi investigates an abandoned level of the station. Delenn is installed as head of the Rangers, but Neroon believes her to be a megalomaniac with messianic delusions. He vows to prevent her taking over the direction of the Rangers.

Delenn makes Lennier promise not to speak of Neroon's threat to the command staff, but Lennier tells Marcus to stall Neroon. Marcus stands ready to make the supreme sacrifice on Delenn's behalf.

In the course of his investigation, Garibaldi discovers a cult with Minbari-like beliefs has taken up residence on the forgotten level. Something sinister also lurks on the level, and guards the only way out.

Arc significance[edit]

  • Babylon 5 has begun recruiting telepaths.
  • Delenn has assumed control of the Rangers.
  • Neroon attempted to stop her, believing she is consumed with messianic delusion, but he was prevented from interfering by Marcus. Neroon accepts Delenn as the head of the Rangers when Marcus invokes Valen's name as his reason for being willing to die for Delenn.
  • It has been noted that this episode was one of the weaker ones overall. J. Michael Straczynski, creator of Babylon 5, expressed his own dissatisfaction with a part of this episode (namely the appearance of the Zarg), as well as a desire to apologize to fans in person.[1]
