'Babylon 5' fans keep show alive at Museum of the Moving Image
A group of dedicated sci-fans have made an out-of-this world donation to the Museum of the Moving Image. And it wasnt easy to make to happen.
According to the Museum, 11 fans of the 90s cult favorite Babylon five bought a pristine, prosthetic mask used on the show on eBay and donated it to the museum.
The 11 fans, didnt know each other and come from U.S. and Europe.
The mask was worn on the show by late-actor Andreas Katsulas as the character G-Kar on the show.
Amy Guskin, of Pennsylvania, discovered the GKar mask up for auction on eBay, and spread word online through a longstanding Babylon 5 Usenet newsgroup, to ask for donations as a way of honoring Katsulas and keeping the mask in the public view.
You can also see what other gems are on display at the museum here.
