I wouldn't mind B5 being integrated into ST continuity.
That would require some massive revisions of one or both, since the B5 and post-B5 timeframe overlaps the pilot/TOS timeframe. For instance, Crusade takes place in 2266-7, same as TOS's first season. I don't see how there can be a Federation and an Earth Alliance at the same time.

Farscape could also fit in.
So Earth just forgot about its first contact with aliens in the early 2000s?

Andromeda could be the far future of the Federation.
No, it couldn't, because the Commonwealth existed for thousands of years before Earth was contacted and brought into it in the 22nd century (with contact occurring in 2135 and Commonwealth membership being granted in 2165). Also because the physics are radically different; in Andromeda, slipstream is the only method of FTL travel in existence, there is no warp drive or subspace radio, and teleportation is only possible when you have a black hole's event horizon to use as an information sink.
