As Sheridan and Ivanova try to gain recognition of the station's new status among the alien governments, a traveler arrives with an unbelievable story out of distant legend.
The Commander and Captain are relieved to see the first Earth transport arrive since their secession from the Earth Alliance, as they need the trade to pay the station's operating costs. However, their defense needs are still uncertain since the Minbari war cruisers can't be expected to hang around outside forever.

Meanwhile on the transport, one of the passengers tosses in his bunk with nightmares. He stumbles down a narrow corridor between doors that refuse to stay shut, terrified by the sights beyond them. He runs, and finds a shining sword standing at the end, awaiting his grasp.

When Marcus mentions Arthur in the war council, Sheridan is not impressed, but the doctor seems almost eager to believe that the Vorlons might have been responsible for preserving and restoring another legend, even though the practical part of him discards the notion. He can't investigate for psychological trauma however because the man has escaped medlab.

Garibaldi isn't too keen on the idea of a crazy knight roaming the station with a big sword, and tells his security to find Arthur.

Garibaldi, on the other hand, is suffering from a lack of sufficient awe - for the Post Office. He breaks into the package storage room only to find the postal worker ready and waiting to turn him away.

Arthur is lost again on the field of Camlan, telling G'Kar about the misunderstanding that had started the battle in which his knights met their deaths, but visions of Minbari vessels destroying Star Furies are dancing in his head.

The Captain is delighted to hear that enough of the League worlds are signing on to the mutual defense treaty to keep the station in business, but nobody's happy about what happened to "Arthur." Franklin is the most upset, berating himself for trying to fix everything again. With Marcus however he finally figures out what McIntyre came to the station to do: to give up the King's responsibility, the King's pain, the King's sword, to the Lady of the Lake.

Garibaldi pays in full for his package, but springs a little surprise of his own on the post office. Rent for the space the office uses is due...and it costs one hundred and one credits.
