i haven't read all that link, but i definitly agree there are similarities between LotR and Babylon 5...

for example, kosh, the vorlon, and gandolf... both serve as guides.

frodo, and sheridan, sorta, and others...

actually, heh - the first time i saw a comparison between LotR and Babylon 5 was about two years into the series (as i recall)

Jms is not afraid to admit to being a huge Tolkein fan. I don't think there would be anything deliberately lifted though. Maybe more on a subconscious level.

Oh, I read an article about that, it was very funny, I haven`t noticed bevor, but there are so many similare things :crazy
For example
Sheridan dies on Zah`ha`dum
Gandalf dies in Kha`za`dum
and both were sent back :lol

I think, Zathras is a bit like Gollum, I always though he was funny :)
"Zathras don`t speak, Zathras can`t even speak" :lol
He even speaks like Gollum :lol
