Re: Farscape or Babylon 5?
Back when the show was on, there was surprisingly little B5 merchandise. I think JMS just didn't like the idea of it and his views were essentially expressed by Ivanova in this episode.
Personally I thought the "Deep Space Francise" shot at Trek was pretty funny, if a little cheep.
I'm pretty sure (though I don't have the scriptbook at hand to verify, since I think it's discussed in the notes) that the line in question was actually Peter David's, not JMS's.
