That's one of the reasons I gave it a B.

Could have been "A -- Excellent" were it not for Gideon's "Sheridan Main Guns moment"[1], where under the force of the intensified gravitational field and losing ground (being pulled down toward the planet) he fires the main guns, and therefore quits resisting the pull of the gravitational field (and there's no visible effect onscreen).

The thing JMS finds objectionable, the talky part with the alien at the end, I don't find troubling at all.

[1] Sheridan fired the main guns while still moving toward the null field in "A Call to Arms."
