Re: The old "DS9 stole from B5" thing

Just that I've read more than once JMS talk about how the names of first episodes of seasons are trying to say something about the show as a whole ("Midnight on the Firing Line" and "No Compromises" in particular.) I am stretching here, but JMS' assertion that DS9 took its premise from B5 is, you know, something of a matter of honor.
Sometimes a title is just a title or else we get some funny scenarios:
- Looks out window, says "Aha!"... "And the Sky Full of Stars"
- Polishing off the Season 4 premiere script late at night, looks at the clock, says "The Hour of the Wolf".
- Looks out window, sees a "Spider in the Web"
- Old math book? "The Geometry of Shadows"
- I don't want to know where "Infection" or "Gropos" came from.
- UPS or Fed Ex shows up late in the day with a parcel from Avalon on Catalina Island? "A Late Delivery from Avalon"
- Listening to Andy Gibb "Shadow Dancing"? You guessed it- "Shadow Dancing"
