In 2259, Lyta Alexander hired Slayner to take her from Mars to Vorlon space. After transporting her to the border of the Vorlon Empire, 10 days from the nearest Jumpgate, Slayner began sending out a continuous signal inviting the Vorlons to appear. After three days the Vorlons still hadn't shown so Slayner decided to turn back. At which point, Lyta commandeered a life pod in exchange for the last of her money and ejected into space, leaving her there with only five days of air, food and water. Slayner would eventually send an account of his journey to IPX.
