Storyline

Astronaut John Crichton's "Farscape-1" space module is swallowed by a wormhole and spat out on the other side of the universe into the middle of a space battle. Taken on board "Moya", a huge bio-mechanoid living ship, desperately trying to escape Peacekeeper captivity. On board Moya is a group of alien fugitives trying to escape from the ruthless Peacekeepers, a local military regime. While managing to escape the immediate threat, John Crichton forms friendships with the prisoners and continues to look for a way home. But later a race of beings called, "The Ancients" implanted knowledge about the power of wormholes in his mind and this knowledge makes him a wanted man throught the Uncharted Territories. Now, John and his crewmates are on the run from ruthless alien races that want his knowledge so they can make wormhole weapons to take over the universe. Despite all that happens to him, despite his friendships and relationships with the crew, at the end of the day he wants to get home... Written by Laurian Luis

Trivia

Crichton was originally going to take off from NASA. NASA was approached, and they agreed, but NASA insisted on approving/reviewing the ENTIRE script for the episode, even though they were only going to be in the first few scenes. Producers declined, and they came up with IASA instead. See more »

Excellent start, excellent finish
12 February 2000 | by (Ardmore, PA) – See all my reviews

What can I say? It starts off great and ends great. The script is simply great and starts the series off with a bang. The characters are unique and intriguing. Special effects, from the space battles to the creatures, rock! Basically, this was an excellent beginning to a excellent show.
