Re: The old "DS9 stole from B5" thing

Lord of the Rings is just one of many influences on Babylon 5. I would bet that Joe has read and watched more stories than a majority of the audience watching the show. There's a lot more to discover than Tolkien in there. Even in B5's original conception notes (http://www.cafepress.com/b5books/6587738) he also mentions Foundation, Lensman, Dune, as well as several movies.
