Galen sent the command to his ship, and it started forward, toward Z'ha'dum and its defenses.
As if materializing out of nothingness, a ship appeared directly in front of him.

He recognized the distinctive yellow-green coloring, the long, narrow frame with four flowing arms aimed forward, almost like a squid on its side.
The Vorlon ship drew closer, coming up alongside him. The hull rippled, like liquid, gathering in one spot, its thickness growing. With a graceful stretch the material extended from the hull, clamped on to his ship. The Vorlon had docked with him.

Galen didn't think the Vorlon was going to come to him, though. If he stunk of Shadows, no doubt his ship did as well.
He went down to the air lock, closed himself between the two thick doors. The atmosphere, temperature, and pressure within the extension matched that in his ship.
