Lorien's ship [Babylon-5]

Brought up in discussion on RPG.net: Lorien had a ship he used to take Sheridan away from Z'ha'dum, but at the end of the series he went all lightbulb. Possibilities:

* He's an interstellar lightbulb, but needed something to bring the mortal safetly.
** ...so he just happened to have his own ship all along, which he later abandoned.
** ...so he 'borrowed' one from the Shadows or their servitors. This was my idea, and it amuses me.

* Advanced races only went interstellar lightbulb when "going beyond the Rim". Also my idea, and it seems more boringly plausible, given that the First Ones use ships usually.

Hasn't Lorien lived on Z'ha'dum for many ages, since before the Shadows came and during several cycles of their removal and reinhabitation? He could have any number of ships of varied vintage stashed around the place.

I do think your idea of servitors' rides is a good one; one used by some group that was captured might be ideal, as it would not immediately alert anyone as Shadow technology but would be / could be easily modified to make Sheridan comfy while they streak back to B5.
