The Zhalen later went to Minbar aboard the Valen'Tha.[5] One year later, it went to meet with the Valen'Tha in regarding the removal of Delenn from the Grey Council.

In 2258, Jha'dur piloted the ship to Babylon 5 with the intent to sell her "universal anti-agapic" serum to the Earth Alliance. Shortly afterwards Jha'dur's Flyer left the station for Earth Alliance space but was destroyed before entering the Jumpgate when a Vorlon cruiser exited the gate and fired on Jha'dur's vessel.
