Red Room Artifacts
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 Zocalo!"

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.
