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
Jim Henson's Creature Shop was responsible for most of the interesting aliens in the series. At one point, Crichton complains about being chased by the electric mayhem. The band on the The Muppet Show (1976) were known as Dr. Teeth and the Electric Mayhem and put out at least one album in the 1970s. See more »
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.

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.
