Farscape Episode Guide
At a scientific mission Commander John Crichton is catapulted through a so called "wormhole". When he comes to he finds himself in a parallel universe many galaxies away from earth - right in the middle of the Peacekeeper territory.
Other than the name implies they are no warrantors for peace in the universe. When Crichton's shuttle enters the universe he is hit by a peacekeeper bomber, which explodes. Thus John gains the wrath of peacekeeper captain Crais whose brother dies in this accident.
On his flight the intruder ends up on the "Moya" - a living space ship, which is home to the most diverse species. The entire crew is united by the fear of the Peacekeeper's revenge and the hope for a return to their respective homes. A fantastic odyssey through space and time begins.
John CrichtonBen Browder
John Crichton is a human born in North Carolina and like his father IASA astronaut. John could skip the fourth grade and visited the J.F.K. Highschool. Then he studied physics and wrote his thesis paper about the cosmic theory.
Together with his friend DK (both have been friends from childhood on) he develops an acceleration theory in hopes to make some sort of space travel possible. Crichton decided to prove this theory by breaking the speed record in the earth's orbit with an experimental space ship, the "Farscape 1".
At this the "Farscape 1" was catapulted through a wormhole to a far part of the universe. He ended up right in the middle of Moya's try to flee from the Peacekeepers. By his unexpected arrival one of the Peacekeeper ships lost control and the pilot, the brother of Captain Crais died. Ever since Crais hunts Crichton in order to get revenge for his brother's death.
Furthermore we learn that his mother's maiden name is McDougall, that he had lost his virginity to Karen Shaw on the backseat of a 4X, that he had a motorcycle accident at which he had dislocated his shoulder and that he was involved in a frontal crash at the age of 19.
Officer Aeryn SunClaudia Black
Aeryn Sun is Sebaceaner, a soldier in the Pleisar regime of the Peacekeeper corps and had been trained for this purpose since her birth. Thus she grew up on Peacekeeper ships which she sees like we humans see our home.
After she was brought onboard the Moya leading officer Crais decided she had been irrevocably contaminated. Thus she was forced to arrange herself with the prisoners to avoid death. Her fight ship, a Prowler, is now onboard the Moya. Aeryn owns a Peacekeeper impulse gun which soon is unintentionally destroyed by Crichton
Sebaceaner are extremely sensitive to heat since they do not have any sweat glands regulating the body heat. With 14 cycles Aeryn flew for the first time cleaning ships, with 14.5 cycles she flew KL 80ies and 81s. With 16 she entered the Prowler attack school. The reason for this late entry: She had to wait until her feet could reach the pedals.
Aeryn knows only little about her parents: Only that her mother is or was a soldiers, that his father's name is Talyn and she had been a wanted child.
Pa'u Zotoh ZhaanVirginia Hey
Zhaan is Delvian, a member of a very spiritual and peaceful race. She is 812 cycles old and has thus reached her mid life.
As a priest she has reached the 9th level of the delvianic search for perfect understanding and union with all life.
Zhaans hobbies contain spiritual painting, meditation and the mixing of elixirs. She can take away the pain from others and is thus more or less an empath.
Delvians are of plant origin. About her joining the priests and her imprisonment we have only contradicting information. Thus we won't further elaborate.
Ka D'ArgoAnthony Simcoe
He is Luxan, member of a race of wild warriors who are known for being erratic. D'Argo is 30 cycles old and has been prisoner on the Moya for 8 cycles.
He claims he had killed his superior officer, which is a lie. As a weapon D'Argo carries a Qualta-Saber which can be modified into an energy gun.
Ka D'Argo has some intense body piercings mainly at the collarbone, his tongue and an interesting way to carry family portraits close to his heart. We learn furthermore that Luxans die in case of a wounding when the blood flow is blocked. Then the actual clear blood colors itself dark red until black.
The Luxans are genetically related to the Ilanix and have two hearts.
She is Nebarian and has escaped from imprisonment.
What crime she commit is not known. Her version is that she got arrested because she didn't want to adapt to the Nebarian society.
Escaped is she because she was ought to be re-programmed. Salis, a bureaucrat of the Nebari, does say that she is able of violence and is also very dangerous.
Chiana is stubborn and egoistic, but can also be vulnerable and funny.
