Welcome to the Red Room!
First take careful notice of the curtains.
Booji had found this pattern in a magazine in the waiting room of the bucket
repair garage and insisted on having it made as the main curtain design
in the Temple, using the same design with different color combinations.
We have found that in a pinch, we can pull one of these curtains down and
it successfully doubles as a tablecloth.
The photograph on the left was found laying in one
of the personal quarters of a Babylon employee shortly before the station
went "boom". The most surprising thing about this photograph of these
people is that they were all able to sit still long enough to pose for
it, being their logs indicate they were extremely busy and on the go.
Furthermore, it is amazing that since G'Kar and Londo are standing next
to each other, neither one has given into the temptation to hold up two
fingers behind the other's head.
The strange looking blue glass enclosed article in
the middle has been carbon dated and catalogued, classified as a "lava
lamp" from roughly the human era of the 1960's. Ancient documentation
from around this period denotes a dialect of language from that era which
includes words and phrases like "groovy", "far out", "heavy" (not referring
to the weight of something) and "wow man". It has since been discovered
that current day "valley sector" people are picking up on this type of
language structure such as the current use of the phrase "like, totally
The picture on the right shows the proper way to
hold a Minbari fighting pike. While it is considered impolite to
extend your pike in casual or business situations unless threatened, it
can be used in parades by drum majorettes in place of a baton. It
is also useful to extend your pike in the restroom when you have discovered
that your stall is out of toilet paper and you need to obtain a roll from
the stall next door.
The bottom item in this exhibit pertains to the same
society in the late 20th century which believed that paper documentation
of time was the way to go; therefore, we have the printed calendar.
This particular calendar was made for the Earth year 1999 and was designed
by a time traveller who had gone to Babylon Station in the future and returned
with historical dates and photographs. Holographic day planning was
not popular in the late 20th century due to the fact that you could not
hang it from your kitchen wall.
