"This is Captain Dexter Smith of the Earth Alliance Destroyer Agrippa to Babylon 5 and renegade ships. You are ordered to surrender your commands and prepare to be boarded."
"This is your only warning. If you do not surrender, we will be forced to initiate deadly force."
- – Capt. Dexter Smith
While in command of the EAS Agrippa, Smith took part in the Battle for B5 Independence, leading the first wave of destroyers. Upon arriving in Babylon 5 space, he ordered Babylon 5 and the two renegade ships, the EAS Alexander and the EAS Churchill to surrender. Captain Sheridan attempted to convince Smith to leave peacefully, but to no avail. In the battle that followed, Smith was killed when the Agrippa was destroyed with all hands.
