I am the kind of guy who hates comparing franchises, especially Star Trek and Star Wars. However, I think DS9 vs. B5 is rather appropriate. For those of you who are not familiar with the story, here is a little history lesson: The similarities are obvious, and I'm sure Paramount took some ideas from B5. What do you guys think? Personally, I don't think Babylon 5 aged very well, and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine is better in the long run.
