The Brisbane Babylon5'ers fan club started back in 2000 with only a smattering of members who would get together once a month, eat copious amounts of pizza, drink even more copious amounts of coke, and watch episodes of Babylon5. Within months, the club grew to twice it's size, and soon the occasional video night just wasn't enough! It wasn't long before we started to invent games like B5 Celebrity Head, and tv competition parodies such as Survivor and The Weakest Link, as well as song competitions, cocktail parties, car rallies, lazerforce challenges, murder mysteries and much more.
As the club grew in size, we realised that it wasn't just a fan club anymore - it had morphed into something greater. An extended family, if you will. And like all families - ours wasn't without its disagreements, fights and power struggles, but we learned, we adapted, and moved on. Survival of the fittest? Maybe. But survival nonetheless.
2003 saw a hiatus for the BB5'ers, whilst the group split up and went it's separate ways. A core group remained however, and are ready to start again with a bigger, better and brighter year than ever in 2004.
Who are we now? We're simply a group of people who come from all walks of life and share the same passion for Babylon5 (and most other science fiction too). Where you can be yourself, hang out and have a great time. Where there are no membership fees - you just pay as you go (unlike many official fan clubs around). We're always looking for new members - so if it sounds like your proverbial cup of tea then come on in! We always look forward to inducting new citizens into our little world.
Unless you're a complete psycho of course. But y'know. We'll cross that bridge when we come to it.
