"I'm just happy to get away from here. I haven't experienced any time flashes, or anything like that, but the area still gives me the weirdest feeling. I don't like it here at all."
"These time stabilizers do seem to be working as promised, but I agree with you, Fighter Two. This is one area of space I'd just as soon never have to visit again."
- – Sakai and Sinclair, 2259
In 2254 the Earth Alliance station Babylon 4 was built in sector 14 shortly before it's mysterious disappearance. The station briefly reappeared in 2258, it's crew unaffected by the passage of time were safely evacuated to Babylon 5 before it again disappeared. In 2259 a creature possessed John Sheridan and forced him to travel to this sector of space. Later that same year, Anla'Shok Marcus Cole, Catherine Sakai and Anla'shok Na Jeffrey Sinclair secretly engaged Shadow forces in Sector 14, resulting in the destruction of a device that was attempting to close the rift. In 2260 White Star 1 travelled through the temporal rift, arriving in 2254 and setting into motion the mysterious sequence of events of the last six years.
