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.

Having been a fan of this show since I first saw it on BBC 2 in 1999, I sat down to watch PKW with some nervousness, Farscape's characters are like a family in a way. A family who you visited every week, you shared their highs and lows, their loves and hates.
Would Peacekeeper Wars be faithful to the series? Or would it be a hodge podge of ideas and scenes with none of the old humanity?
Happily my fears were unjustified. PKW grabs you by the throat and does not let go.
The acting was, as usual, superb with believable characters, The bad guys do not resort to the cliché of being bad for the sake of it. Everyone has their reasons for doing what they do.
The effects were amazing and the story line is a roller coaster ride.
Admittedly, there are times when the compressed season 5 storyline jars. But this is forgivable.
The rumour at the time of filming was that the mini series used up all the available squibs in Australia. After seeing the battle scenes, you realize why!
All in all, a good ending to this part of the story while still leaving a way to make more.
Let's hope Moya keeps flying and we visit her crew in the future.
