Babylon 5 was an Earth alliance station that had been built in neutral space, to be used as a meeting place where all governments could come and settle disputes. It was hoped by Earth's government that a war like the one that Earth had fought with the Minbari Federation, which almost ended in the genocide of the human race, could be avoided. Michael Garibaldi had been assigned to Babylon 5 in 2257, when the Earth Alliance station first became operational. At least with the help of Babylon 5 things had remained peaceful, but by 2261 the Earth Alliance was broken in two by civil war, the Narns were fighting to regain their home world from the Centauri, and the Shadow War was going full tilt.
Then in the middle of all this, after years of being supposedly dead, Anna Sheridan--the wife of Captain John Sheridan, the commanding officer of Babylon 5--not only popped up on the station out of nowhere but persuaded John to go with her to Z'ha'dum. The very home world of the Shadows. The people Garibaldi thought were the enemy. If that wasn't enough, soon after the captain's departure, a Shadow fleet came out of nowhere and surrounded Babylon 5. Of course, something had to be done in response. So, as futile as it may have seemed at the time, Ivanova scrambled all the Starfuries and had them take up defensive positions around the station.
Because of the urgency of the situation, Garibaldi volunteered to pilot a Starfury. Within minutes of the Shadows' appearance, Garibaldi found himself in the cockpit of a Starfury, facing down what had to be the largest battle fleet he had ever seen. As he thought of such battles from old Earth history like the Alamo, he reminded himself that if he did go down it wouldn't be without a fight.
With his Starfury's four pulse cannons charged and ready, Garibaldi found himself staring at something that was almost impossible to describe. The Shadow ships he was facing looked as if they were arachnid in design and were, if possible, a shade deeper than the deepest black which both reflected and absorbed the light of the Epsilon sun. Despite the fact that they were only ships, there was an almost intangible quality about them that gave the impression that they were alive.
Then it happened, without warning: one after another the Shadow ships started to disappear. As he watched the disappearing vessels with mounting confusion, Garibaldi saw a Shadow ship heading directly toward him. He began to take evasive maneuvers to avoid what was almost sure to be a collision, when the Shadow vessel changed course slightly and flew over Garibaldi's Starfury. A few seconds later, the Shadow vessel latched onto Garibaldi's craft with a tractor beam and dragged him along as it cloaked and entered the vast crimson depths of hyperspace.
After being towed for over a day in hyperspace, Garibaldi collapsed into sleep from a combination of extreme exhaustion and lack of food. He awoke and found himself in a room with a bed dresser, filled with clothes, and a bathroom. A few minutes after he awoke, a woman entered the room wearing the black uniform of a Psi Cop. Garibaldi took an instant disliking to her the moment he saw her.
The Psi Cops were an internal investigations division of Psi Corp. Psi Corp was an organization that oversaw the training of telepaths in the responsible use of their abilities, so they would not accidentally hurt or scan anyone. One way that a telepath could scan someone was by making skin to skin contact. To prevent this from happening, all members of Psi Corp were required to always wear gloves. It was also mandatory for all telepaths to become members of the Corp. If someone did not want to become part of Psi Corp, they could either be sent to a relocation camp, which according to some critics were no better than concentration camps, or take what was called the sleepers. The sleepers were a chemical compound that would suppress telepathic abilities. The two major divisions in Psi Corp were the Psi Cops and the Commercial telepaths.
The Psi Cops were charged with enforcing all laws pertaining to telepaths and maintaining the security of Psi Corp itself. The Psi Cops had broad powers, especially when it came to investigating any crimes that may have been committed by telepaths. It was suspected by people both in and out of the Corp, Garibaldi included, that the Psi Cops may have done some ethically shaky things in order to enforce those laws. One Psi Cop in particular who had drawn Garibaldi's hatred was Albert Bester, whom Garibaldi had come in contact with one too many times to please him during his stint on Babylon 5.
Commercial telepaths were usually employed to participate in business negations. The commercial telepaths would scan all the parties who were negotiating to make sure that everything was kept honest. Commercial telepaths were also sometimes called in by government agencies to scan people to help with an ongoing investigation.
Doing her best to not let the feelings of anger and dislike she was feeling from Garibaldi bother her, the woman explained that purely by "accident", while flying through hyperspace, a squadron of Psi Corps Omega Starfuries had come across Garibaldi's Starfury being towed by the Shadow vessel and had liberated him from his captors. Of course, being caring people concerned for his well-being, his rescuers had brought him back here for rest and recuperation. When Garibaldi asked exactly where "here" was, all the woman would say was that he should not worry, get some rest, and that he would soon be back on Babylon 5 where he belonged.
Then it had begun: days that were filled with Garibaldi being treated and examined by Psi Corp physicians. When the treatments had started, he found himself feeling more tired and lethargic with each passing day. After the first couple days when he asked, Garibaldi was told that the bouts of sleepiness that he was experiencing were just being caused by the drugs they were giving him, and that the added sleep would help him recuperate faster. His first thought after hearing this explanation was that it was just a bunch of Psi Corp garbage, just like almost anything else that came flying out of their mouths. Nevertheless, as Garibaldi was painfully aware, he could do nothing about his situation.
After the third day of his convalescence, Garibaldi started having dreams every night about a woman whom he had not seen in years: Talia Winters. Garibaldi had met her in 2258 when she had been assigned to Babylon 5 by Psi Corp to serve as the station's commercial telepath. Talia was a slimly built blond of medium height who had, more importantly to Garibaldi, a very beautiful personality that matched her physical beauty.
Yet it was to never be for the two of them. Despite all his attempts to win her interest romantically, the most Garibaldi had with Talia was a very cool friendship. He eventually resigned himself to the fact that they would never be lovers. Despite all the reasons she had given him, he felt she had never talked to him about the real reason for his being what he felt was rejected out of hand. The real reason he suspected was that they were just too different from one another and she was unable to deal with it. The difference between them was that she was a telepath and he was not. It had not been the most ideal of situations for him, especially when she would tell him what a wonderful person he was. He would then think of all his feelings for her and the potential they might have together if she would only give it a chance.
Then in 2259, Lyta Alexander, a rouge telepath who was on the run from Psi Corp, arrived on Babylon 5 claiming that someone on the station was actually a spy as part of a Psi Corp sleeper program. Psi Corp had an alternate personality implanted within the individual's sub-conscious without their knowledge. The alternate personality would influence their actions in ways that allowed them to find out what Psi Corp needed to know. With Lyta's help the B5 command staff began searching for the Psi Corp spy and they found that it was Talia Winters. The only way to find the spy was by telepathically transmitting a code word to someone mind, which would cause the alternate personality to replace the person's original personality. And so when it was discovered that Talia was the Psi Corp mole she was forced to leave Babylon 5.
Garibaldi had been a friend of Talia until her departure from Babylon 5. He had to be content with the idea that if the two of them were to ever be together romantically, it was to be only in his dreams. The dreams had occurred over the last few years with less and less frequency, until they stopped totally--until now, when his dreams about Talia resumed. They were something like this...
Talia entered the room and stood by the bed as she gazed down at the sleeping form of Garibaldi. She leaned over him and slowly caressed his cheek with her black gloved hand. After a second, she lifted her hand to the level of her eyes and contemplated the glove. She then took off her gloves and with both hands resumed caressing his face. As Talia caressed him, she luxuriated in the feel of his smooth skin. It was a special feeling for her since as a telepath she had always been forced to wear gloves to prevent her from accidentally doing something as she was about to do now.
As Talia let her hand glide over Garibaldi's cheek, using her telepathic abilities she reached out for his slumbering mind. As her mind touched his, she took a second to appreciate the absolute peace that sleep brought him. Talia brought him out of his deep sleep to a state between full consciousness and sleep. In his current state of semi-consciousness he would be able and react to things as if he were fully awake, but he would perceive things as if they were part of a dream. Since the implanted personality had taken control of Talia, there was very little left of her original personality. What was left felt a strong physical attraction for Garibaldi and she didn't care what she did as long as it meant having him.
Staring down at Garibaldi, Talia leaned over and passionately kissed him on the lips. As her lips locked with his, Talia felt Garibaldi pull away from her and she found herself staring into his eyes.
"Talia is that you?" Garibaldi asked in a dazed and confused voice as he sat up.
"Yes, Michael," was all Talia said in reply as she resumed kissing him. Garibaldi wrapped both his arms around Talia's waist as he slowly pulled her down toward the bed.
As they lay there on the bed kissing one another, Talia and Garibaldi's hands began to wander and caress each other. Garibaldi's hand slowly moved down Talia's back and began massaging one of Talia's buttocks. "That feels delightful," Talia purred in Garibaldi's ear as she moved her hand between his legs and began running it over his crotch. Garibaldi hugged her closer to him as he began to suck on her neck and a low soft moan escaped from Talia. She wrapped both arms around him, holding Garibaldi tightly to her as he sucked on Talia's neck with ever increasing pressure.
"Hold up for a sec, Michael," Talia said, slowly pulling back from him. She rose from the bed and quickly removed all her clothes, dropping them on the floor next to the bed. "So you like?" Talia asked.
"No," Garibaldi replied as he took in the sight of her naked body. "I love it!"
"Well so do I," Talia said in response as she removed the blanket from the bed, exposing Garibaldi clad in only his pajama bottoms.
Talia lowered herself onto the bed and, straddling Garibaldi's waist, and sat on top of him. Leaning forward she began running her hand lightly over his firm chest, then down toward his stomach and finally his crotch, where she resumed playing with his penis through his clothes. In response, Garibaldi sat up, putting his arms around her again, and began sucking vigorously on one of her nipples.
"Oh Michael!" Talia said passionately, "That feels sooooo good!" She began fumbling with his clothing trying to get his penis out, with little success.
"Talia," Garibaldi said, "get off me please." Talia complied and stood next to the bed, waiting while Garibaldi worked the rest of his clothes off. "So what do you think?" Garibaldi asked.
Talia lay down on the bed next to him, took his penis in her hand and started to play with it. "Well," Talia said, "I think I waited too long to get a hold of this thing."
As Talia took his stiffening rod and resumed running her hand up and down it, Garibaldi started to suck on one of her breasts while playing with the other one. "That feels good," Garibaldi said.
"You like that?" Talia responded. "Then you should love this." She gave him one final squeeze and then maneuvered so her face was right above his crotch.
Taking his testicles in her hand and squeezing on them ever so slightly, Talia began to play with them as she began to lick the head of his penis. She started to lick her way down one side of his tool and then up the other, all the while playing with his balls, taking the head of his rod into her mouth.
"That feels great, Talia!" Garibaldi exclaimed as he watched his rod disappear into her mouth. After a few minutes Talia began to take first one, then the other, of his balls into her mouth, while with both hands she began to play with his now rock hard member.
After a few minutes, Talia said, "I think you're about ready." She then positioned her crotch above Garibaldi's face. Grabbing hold of her buttocks he started to eat her out as Talia's lips started to work their way back down his tool. She continued bobbing her head up and down while one of her hands played with his balls and Garibaldi started to lick away at her now swollen clitoris. They continued like that, with Garibaldi licking and sucking alternately at her clit and slit, attempting to suck down every last drop of her juices. Talia continued to play with his balls as she licked and sucked away at his penis with ever increasing lust.
As she was sucking a way at him and licked away at some pre cum that had seeped out Talia said, "Okay, Stallion, this cowgirl wants to go for a ride." She gave his tool one final lick and positioned her crotch over it and began to slowly impale herself on it.
"Oh god you're tight," Garibaldi exclaimed as his tool finished entering Talia and began to slowly push upwards with his hips.
"No let me do that, Michael." Saying this, Talia began to slowly bounce up and down as she took Garibaldi by the back of the head and guided his mouth to one of her nipples. Taking his cue from her, Garibaldi wrapped his arms around her and started to suck on one of Talia's breasts as she continued pumping up and down on his member with her hips.
Garibaldi sucked on Talia's breasts each in turn as she began to increase the rhythm as she moved up and down. "Oh yes! You feel so good in me!" she yelled as Garibaldi sucked on one of Talia's breasts with ever increasing vigor. He then slipped an arm from around her so he could play with her free breast.
Garibaldi lifted his head away from Talia's breast and lowered her towards him and kissed her. "Talia," Garibaldi said, "I can't believe this is finally happening, I..."
"Shut up," Talia said cutting him off, her voice full of lust, "and keep on fucking me." She bent back down mashing her lips on his as she resumed kissing him and Garibaldi continued to thrust deeper and ever deeper into her, all the while increasing the pace of their love making.
As they kissed, Talia's lips parted and her tongue forced its way past Garibaldi's lips and began to play in Garibaldi's mouth. Garibaldi's tongue returned her tongue's attention as he pulled her toward him, mashing her breasts upon his chest. All the while their gyrations had reached a fever pitch. Talia screamed, "Oh god!" as she orgasmed and she heard Garibaldi let out a loud moan as he orgasmed right along with her.
Their bodies spent, they fell upon the bed and lay awhile entwined in each other's limbs. "You know," Talia said, "Michael, it was very good and I wish we had done it sooner."
Taking her hand and kissing it, Garibaldi said, "So do I Talia."
And that was where his dream ended.
She took his head in both her hands and gently kissed him on the lips. While she kissed him, Talia used the physical contact to telepathically connect with his mind and put it back into the state of sleep in which she first found him. Slowly unentwining herself from him, Talia said, "You were good tonight, stud. I can't wait until tomorrow."
Getting up from the bed, Talia took a long appreciative look at Garibaldi before she covered him up in the bed sheets and she gathered her clothing from the floor to begin dressing. Just as she finished getting dressed, Talia heard her link beep. Removing the link from her pocket she answered it. "Yes?"
"Ms. Winters, are you finished having your fun now?" Talia heard Bester ask impatiently.
"Yes," Talia responded. "The doctors can have him now."
"Thank you," Bester said. "A few more nights of reconditioning his mind and he will be programmed to do what we want him to, and we should be ready to return him to Babylon 5. And by the way," Bester continued, "why I'm even bothering to let you fool around with him like this is beyond me. I mean, the man is a mundane for God's sake."
"Well," Talia responded, "some might say it's your generous nature, but I know you better than that."
"Anyway," Bester said, "I will expect you in my office in ten minutes, Ms. Winters." Then Talia heard him terminate the connection, and she put her link back in her jacket pocket. As she started to leave the room some Psi Corp Medics entered and not so gently lifted the sleeping Garibaldi on a gurney and wheeled him out of the room.
