More than 900 items from the recently wrapped TV show "Battlestar Galactica" are set to hit the auction block at California's Pasadena Convention Center.

NBC Universal Television, DVD, Music and Consumer Products Group said it is teaming with Propworx for a live auction May 8-10.

A portion of the proceeds from the auction will benefit United Way.

"We were incredibly happy with the first 'Battlestar Galactica' auction in January and we know the fans will be just as thrilled with this final auction as well," Kurt Ford, senior vice president of production services at Universal Media Studios, said in a statement. "We saved key items, which were pivotal to the series, and we are pulling out all the stops to create a truly unique event that will do justice to the series."

"A lot of experienced collectors, and just plain fans, felt that the first 'Battlestar Galactica' auction was the most exciting and fun 'prop and costume' auction ever," added Propworx Chief Executive Officer Alec Peters. "We intend to make the second and final auction even bigger and better, with more of the show's stars, more fun activities at the auction preview day, and an even more impressive display of the items up for auction."
