Cast NotesEdit

  • This is the only episode to feature only one regular character - that of John Sheridan. Delenn also has two cameo appearances, but she has no lines and appears only as an illusion. Susan Ivanova and Michael Garibaldi appear in flashbacks in the beginning as a form of exposition, but their footage is taken from the previous episode and has no impact on the story.



Act IEdit

Act IIEdit

Act IIIEdit

Act IVEdit

Act VEdit


  • The title of the episode comes from the fact that each segment ("Intersection") of the episode is filmed in a single take ("in Real Time") with no cuts, interruptions, or rearrangements.
  • Except for the title sequence and stock footage, the Babylon 5 station does not appear in this episode.  

DVD releaseEdit

This episode, along with the other episodes from season four, has been released on DVD with extensive special features.
