* TravelingAtTheSpeedOfPlot: Almost every time someone has to leave the station urgently, someone tells them that "the next transport to X leaves in one hour." then suddenly someone says it is in 2 hours.

* WhenThingsSpinScienceHappens: Babylon 5 itself. See also the less-advanced Earthforce warships: they each rely on rotating sections to generate [[ArtificialGravity indoor gravity.]] In all other sections, officers must hold onto safety bars or strap themselves into chairs to keep from floating away. Even the super-advanced Omega class destroyers (built with Shadow technology) have rotating sections. It's [[JustifiedTrope Justified]] because Earth technology to that point hadn't discovered the secret to weightlessness. It is only later, once the Minbari and the Intersteller Alliance begin sharing their knowledge with Earth thay they begin catching up, beginning with the ''Warlock''-class.

** Even putting aside the [[FauxSymbolism unlucky connotations]] of "Babylon", Earthforce has already deployed ''four'' Babylon stations, each of which has either blown up or vanished. Did it not occur to them to maybe name it different next time? Heck, they even [[IndianBurialGround reused the parts]] from the cursed stations to make the news ones.

**[[spoiler: Object loop is actually averted. There was a set of triluminaries on Epislon 3, that are recovered by Zathras. They are handed to Sinclair. Sinclair goes in the past, uses them to transform into Valen, they become holy artifacts...and are the ones seen in the show.]]

** WordOfGod is that JMS had "trap doors" ready for all the characters, and SuspiciouslySimilarSubstitute characters ready to go, knowing well the vagaries of TV production and the fact that any given actor might suddenly become unavailable for a variety of reasons.
