>What language was Zathras speaking at the end?

Hard to say. The Minbari visitors just silently follow him, after some confusion; whether that's from his words or just his gestures, we can't say.

>Where did the tri-doodad come from if the Minbari merely "discovered", rather than "invented" it? Does it endlessly change hands as the same 1000 years repeat ad nauseum, and that's how it's always happened? Or did someone, somewhere (another time traveler?) invent a device with the purpose of creating a human-Minbari hybrid, because they knew it would be needed at some point?

It was invented on Epsilon 3, with the Great Machine. At one point Zathrus unloads some triangular cases which was supposed to indicate this, but it wasn't explicit.

It has an interesting history - invented sometime in the last 500 years, loaded on Babylon 4 in the (approximate) present, sent 1000 years in the past and used for Sinclair's transformation, kept in Minbari hands for a millennium, then used again at the end of the war to confirm Sinclair has a Minbari soul, then in the present to allow Delenn's transformation. Phew.

>What were the consequences of this disequilibrium that required Delenn to transform to fix themselves?

Presumably, to let the reverse start happening - let human souls into Minbari bodies, so there's an equal exchange.

I have to wonder how much 'Valen' put into the letter he wrote to Sheridan. Was it minutely detailed, or just specific enough to ensure things went correctly? Does it tell him anything about his life after he goes to the past and transforms? It's not a very thick envelope, at least...

Ah, then 'Ebfr vf Cvax Qvnzbaq' is definitely off the table.

Yeah, it's up there with 'Garnet is a fusion' or even 'Vader is Luke's father'.
