Lojban semantics is founded on 1st-order logic, which is a superset
of Prolog logic of course, but Lojban syntax is not influenced by
Prolog's at all. I once translated a small Prolog program into
Lojban, and it comes out grammatical but repetitious, since Lojban
makes you "declare" all variables with an explicit universal quantifier
and Prolog doesn't.
