The peace of crystallized organic material that is Aeryn and Crichton's baby, which stayed inside Rygel, has never gone thought the decrystallizing machine. Nevertheless it started growing, and Rygel's stomach acids did not harm it, but it was established earlier in the series that Rygel's stomach acids are not the same fashion as others, which could mean it could be conducive to not only restoring the baby crystal, but nurturing it as well.

[Chiana is nearly hysterical after D'Argo's death, and is talking to Chricton]
Hey, come here. Kill the frelling sledgeknots. And kill their mothers, too. An-and if you can kill 'em slowly, do it.
Back off, Chiana.
[lunges at Rygel and grabs his clothing]
Keep away! D'Argo's dead. Do you think I frelling care what I do to *you*?

This miniseries neatly wraps up the plots and characters of the always inventive, wildly funny, and deeply intelligent Farscape. (Check out the first four seasons for proof).
And it does so with panache! It's wonderful to see Crichton, Aeryn, D'Argo, Chiana, Moya, Pilot and Rygel back, their inimitable selves as usual. And of course the Scarrans, Scorpius, Grayza and a host of other less than savory characters also make their presence keenly felt.
I won't talk about the plot (people have done so already), but the acting and the characters and the plot are all raised to the next level. The wit is just as sharp, the emotions just as strong, and many loose ends get tied up (but not so tightly that there can't be more future Farscape if the creators decide to go that route).
The last hour of the mini is enough to justify it a permanent place on my DVD shelf whenever it comes out. I cried, I laughed, I gasped. I was thoroughly entertained. Truly, some of the best sci-fi out there.
