Graza wasn't scripted to be pregnant for the mini-series. But Rebecca Rigg's pregnancy, forced the writers to adjust the script accordingly. See more »
The Eidelon priest told Aeryn that at the dawn of their usefulness 27 thousand cycles (about 27 thousand years) ago they found a primitive and barely clothed species, humans, which they genetically engineered to make peacekeepers. Crichton found an artifact near the Eidelon temple on Arnask (ep.402 "What Was Lost") with an Egyptian hieroglyph. The Egyptian hieroglyphs are dated 3200 b.c, about 5.2 thousand years ago, there were no Egyptians 27 thousand years ago, nor there were Egyptian hieroglyphs. This might be explained if the hieroglyph seen in "What Was Lost" - the eye of Ra - was introduced to primitive Earthlings by the Eidolons and re-surfaced in Egypt millenia later, rather than supposing that it originated on Earth first thousands of years after the Eidolons' visitation. It would also mean that the "barely clothed" species may have been a species of proto-human, which would mean that the Sebaceans are not entirely human, but close enough related to result in an offspring being possible.

A monumental black hole. A swirling headstone marking the spot where we used to live and play and slaughter the innocent.

Farscape was the best and most imaginative of sci fi series. The characters were just that ...characters. Not a cop who gets results through unorthodox interrogation techniques, not a group of American army personnel representing earth to a group of American-o-centric aliens but a group of incredible (meaning unbelievable) characters.
The colours, the shapes.....
John spends the entire series as a mentally ill person warped by his experiences and the brain surgery of Scorpius.
When he takes on a 7 foot lizard creature in a fist fight he ends up smashed and bruised on the far side of the room. When he falls in love she happens to be a soldier dedicated to his own extermination. Nobody gets his jokes and he honestly doesn't know the secrets the others are prepared to kill him for.
Farscape is about a hopeless quest. No Voyager style course plotted in to a computer. Earth is just a dream to be scrabbled after by a desperate loony. He keeps a grip on his own reality by quoting catchphrases from prime time TV and incidents from black and white films. Harvey, the computer program implanted by Scorpius is my favourite. What a wonderful complex character Scorpius is - there is no evil in Farscape, no black and white, only shades of Grey.
I would quite happily have accepted John waking up and believing it was all a dream following some tremendous astronaut accident.
Farscape the mini series is a wonderful finale to the best sci fi series ever conceived.
