The only reason anyone thought DS9 and B5 were similar is because nobody else had ever really done a space-station show before.
Well, there's that, there's the fact that both stations have a single digit number at the end of their names ...
At least with B5 we found out (in one case in great detail) what happen to Babylon One through Four. I can't remember any mention of Deep Space One through Eight.
Why did Starfleet rename it "Deep Space Nine?"
