Additionally, Bain played roles in other fan favorites, including the Harlem Globetrotters on Gilligan's Island and Savage.
She was reunited with her co-star from Space: 1999, Barry Morse, when they performed a production of A.R. Gurney's Love Letters in Culver City, California at the Breakaway convention on September 11, 1999, produced by Robert E. Wood and Anthony Wynn.
Bain and then-husband Martin Landau gave authorization to Terry S. Bowers to officially run their fan club, called The Landau/Bain Fan Association. The group published quarterly newsletters covering both actors. The newsletters were initially entitled "Mission: 1999", then changed to The Landau/Bain Concordance.
When the actors separated, the clubs also split into separate entities: Barbara Bain International and The Martin Landau Aficionados. Jointly and separately, the clubs were in existence for more than 25 years.
A large number of fanzines contain stories, commentary, and artwork of the various characters Bain played on television, including Cinnamon Carter (Mission: Impossible, Gail Abbott (Savage), and Dr. Olga Schmetner (Harlem Globetrotters on Gilligan's Island). Specific titles that contain stories featuring the character of Dr. Helena Russell in Space: 1999 include Everything Yet To Be, The Alpha Files, and Moonscape.
