A prequel series, set 100 years before the original Star Trek series, which focuses on the early years of Starfleet, leading up to the formation of the Federation and the Earth-Romulan Wars. The series is set aboard the Earth ship Enterprise NX-01, captained by Jonathan Archer.
When an old enemy, the Cylons, resurfaces and obliterate the 12 colonies, the crew of the aged Galactica protects a small civilian fleet - the last of humanity - as they journey toward the fabled 13th colony of Earth.

A one hour documentary/primer aired to prepare new viewers of the Sci-Fi Channel's Farscape for the third season. It includes clips from the first two seasons and explanations on each of the main characters.
When a full-scale war is engaged by the evil Scarran Empire, the Peacekeeper Alliance has but one hope: reassemble human astronaut John Crichton, once sucked into the Peacekeeper galaxy through a wormhole. Crichton's task: Get the entire Peacekeeper race to safety before the last war of an era brings and end to the universe. Written by
When John is explaining wormholes in the classroom the equation on the left chalkboard at the top right reads E = MC Hammer. See more »
At the end of 'Bad Timing' when Aeryn and John were transformed into crystals, their pulse pistols are clearly visible in the pile (the pistols had not turned into crystals). However, when they were reconstituted at the beginning of 'The Peacekeeper Wars' the first thing they did was pull their guns which were, supposedly, still in their holsters. See more »
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.
