Who Are You?
By Jaelle

A CSI/Babylon 5 Crossover

Yes, really



Disclaimer: I so don’t own any of these guys. JMS created Kosh, and CSI is really really REALLY not mine. No infringement is intended by this fic, merely entertainment.



"Who are you?" plays as the scene flashes to a landscape shot of Las Vegas. The scene flash-focuses down onto the body of a young man lying face down on the ground. Police mill around, taping off the scene and talking to by-standers. A van pulls up and out come GIL GRISSOM, SARA SIDLE, NICK STOKES and AMBASSADOR KOSH NARANEK. JIM BRASS walks over to them.

GRISSOM:
What've you got?

BRASS:
Bystander called it in, said the guy was just walking down the street when, and I quote, "the shadows ate him". He's a mess Gil. Think you can find out what did this?

GRISSOM:
I'll see what the evidence tells us. Cause of death?

KOSH:
There is a hole in his mind.

BRASS:
Could be - the guy's been pretty badly shot up, and there is a gunshot wound in his head.

NICK:
Guess we'll have to wait for the autopsy to confirm that.

They bend to view the body.

KOSH:
Who are you?

BRASS:
We've identified the body as one Dr Jack Morden, no fixed address.

KOSH:
He has always been here.

GIL:
He's right - look at this!

GIL fishes out a drivers licence from beneath the body.

GIL:
He was born here.

BRASS:
A local huh? That should help.

SARA:
If he was local, maybe it was a mob hit? Gunshot to the head implies an execution.

KOSH:
You seek meaning? Then listen to the music, not the song.

GIL:
Kosh is right, let's not go jumping to any conclusions. Let's keep our options open for now.

NICK:
One thing's for sure, he knew this was coming. I mean, look at his face.

KOSH:
Reflection, surprise, terror.

GIL:
Terror definitely.

SARA:
Someone else who was scared to death?

GIL:
One way or another we'll find out.

SARA:
What's this?

SARA picks up a book of matches from under MORDEN's body.

SARA:
"Z'ha'duum."

NICK:
The nightclub?

KOSH:
If you go to Z'ha'duum, you will die.

BRASS:
I _thought_ that name sounded familiar! Morden's the part-owner of the club. We’ve been looking into a number of suspicious deaths surrounding that place.

GIL:
We're gonna need to talk to the other owners.

BRASS:
Believe me, _everyone_ wants to talk to those guys, but we don't know where they are. Or who they are. Everything's been signed as "Jack Morden and Associates". We tried to round them up a couple of nights ago, but they'd split. I got a witness says there was some talking and then an explosion, and it looked like it had fried their electrical system. I've got the Day shift working on it.

NICK:
Did the witness hear anything that was said?

BRASS:
Something like 'leave this place'. We raided it later and found a ton of weapons and drugs.

NICK:
Sounds like someone didn't like the competition.

SARA:
And we're back to a potential execution.

GIL:
Well, we’ll check the area and the nightclub for evidence, but with no witnesses, and the chief suspects missing, we may never know what really went on here.

KOSH:
Yes.

GIL gives KOSH a funny look, before returning to gathering the evidence. KOSH says nothing.

END.
