** Though on duty they usually stick to protocol and call each other "Captain" and "Commander", John Sheridan and Susan Ivanova are also close friends and so use first names in less formal (or more emotional) situations.

** The other governments file formal protests, including the Vorlons, who normally can't even be bothered to show up to the meetings. None of them are willing to start a fresh war over it though, which is justified because the Centauri just curb stomped the Narn, none of the other nations were as strong as the Narn had been, and the conflict had ended with the Narn Homeworld being bombarded by the aforementioned Mass Drivers.

On top of that, of the three races best equipped to challenge the Centauri, the Vorlons and Minbari are both preparing for war with the Shadows (the Centauri's secret backers), and the human government [[spoiler: is similarly being influenced by the Shadows.]]

* FantasyCounterpartReligion:
** Foundationism is a new religion among humans. Details of the religion are never given but what is known is that they consider that God is in all religions and that they take the best from each one. A particular ritual, taken from the Australian aboriginals, it's described as: The person, having discovered they have lost themselves, would leave everything and start walking and keep on walking until they (metaphorically) meet themselves. The person would then sit down and have a long talk with their "self", about everything they have learned and felt until they run out of words.
** The Narn have different religions but the most presented in detail is G'Kar's who is a follower of the philosophist G'Quan and seems to be similar to Taoism.
** The Minbari religion is based in Pantheism and have a believe in reincarnation similar to many Eastern religions.
** The Centauri religion is more of a Pagan polytheistic religion with 50 official gods (and one unofficial based on a noble man who bought his way in the pantheon).

** The Vorlons abducted a man named Sebastian from 19th century London and "re-educated" him regarding the depths of his mistakes, arrogance and superiority so he could later be employed as an "inquisitor". [[spoiler: Turns out he was taken the day after a string of prostitute murders in London's East End and that Sebastian is known to history under a different name: [[JackTheRipper Jack]]...]]

** The Centauri. Dear ''God'', the Centauri.

** The Centauri. Dear ''God'', the Centauri. Centauri combat uniforms are essentially Napoleonic Era uniforms. One episode sees a Centauri military ops unit caught on ''Babylon 5'' because they were wearing reasonably sneaky cloaks, but ''were wearing their gold-trimmed purple uniforms underneath.''


Added DiffLines:

** The later, Minbari-made uniforms are a double-subversion. While they look like pretty nice and dressy daily wear uniforms to human eyes, they are constructed from materials normally only worn by religious leaders, revered military commanders and the like among the Minbari. They are definitely Bling Of War by minbari standards, but Minbari standards on the topic are quite subdued.
