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
Between the end of the Farscape series and this miniseries production, the sound processing and makeup was changed to different companies. Hence, the different sound for Pilot, even though it was the same voice actor and the makeup difficulties for Noranti, even though the same actress played the same part without problem for a full season of the series plus one episode. Obviously the character makeup was changed, and not for the better. The actress had to pull out after shooting only a few scenes, after a bad reaction to the new makeup. The attempt to film her part with a double (while she voiced the dialogue) was abandoned part-way through filming as the double was not very convincing. The character is almost completely absent for the final two-thirds of the 3-hour mini-series and even then you only catch glimpses of her from behind or the side. 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.

John! You went there, didn't you?
I went the whole way there.
I didn't want you to do that.
Yes, you did. Everybody wants to see the great big wormhole weapon.
No, I want to see war turned into peace.
War and Peace, War and Peace. Did you know that Woody Allen's version is better than Tolstoy's? Because it is funnier and absolute power corrupts, absolutely. Where the hell's my pen? Where's my pen?
This is what you want!
No, Aeryn it is not what I want! It's just that fate keeps blocking all the...

ALL Farscape fans should watch this! [Bring back the series!]
Be happy mine eyes!
At long last, Farscape, the series untimely canceled by the 'wisdom' of the SciFi Channel, has returned in a mini-series worthy of the original series.
In brief, this WAS Farscape! Unlike so many other mini-series which compromise the core qualities which made the series great and pandered to the lowest common denominator, Farscape:PKW has remained true to the magic and charm we so loved and we've so missed, picking up immediately after the cliffhanger at the end of the final season.
The only way this mini-series fell short of the original series was the nature of it being a mini-series. The creators had less time to focus on the interactions of the characters and supply more of the special moments which made Farscape as great as it was. However; surprisingly little was lost. My friends as I, gathered at my house to watch this together, all remarked how it was surprising how much story was told it so little time. The creators did a wonderful job making use of these four hours. Anyway, the only people to blame for only having four hours were the foolish execs who came up with the mistake of canceling Farscape the series in the first place.
Everyone I know is in unison in the fervent hope that Farscape will once again become a series. We've seen here that Farscape is still alive and well. If SciFi Channel is not wise enough to resume it, hopefully another network will. Such a network will earn my allegiance. Nonetheless, if Farscape does not come back, at least we have some sense of completion to our beloved story and characters which was sadly denied us upon the untimely cancellation of the series.
As Scorpy said.... "John Crichton... is alive!" Long live Farscape!
