Between the end of the Farscape (1999) series and this miniseries production, the sound processing and makeup was changed to different companies. Hence, the different sound for Pilot and the makeup difficulties for Noranti, even though both characters are played by the same actors from the show. The character makeup was changed, and not for the better. Melissa Jaffer 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 piece 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 Farscape 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.

Where the hezmana in my orders did you find the phrase "pre-emptive attack"?
The Scarrans are massing for an impending onslaught we all know is coming. A conflict we are ill-situated to win. By challenging them before they are prepared at least we have a fighting chance.
You were sent there to gather surveillance and?
With all due respect, sir, I was sent here to perish at the vanguard of this inevitable conflict. I simply refuse to participate on their terms or yours.
Because of your actions, ...

Truly the Best is always the Last, this was the Best!
Farscape:The Peacekeeper Wars was truly to the quote," the best is always last." Once again Series Creator Rockne S. O' Bannon and Executive Producer David Kemper, and Henson Productions had returned us to that portion of the Universe far exceeding the limits of our imagination. And also giving closure and finale to many story plots of the previous four year quest of Astronaut John Crichton and his beloved Flight Officer Aeryn Sun. Equally within this final piece the reappearance of other beloved and familiar characters showing solid and firm tapestry. Because in a series like Farscape it's not stand alone character show, but an intricate web of characters and situations that really kept the viewer on edge. Good television is a rare find and this series truly deserved a well resolution to that Cliffhanger of March 21st, 2003.
In all the Mini Series was delightfully entertaining, romance filled, comedic, surprising and, tear jerking in all a well written saga. Also this Mini Series gave hints that nothing really ends. Being if you watched it carefully, seeds for Second Mini Series or possibly a feature film had been planted. But for now I'm comfortable that poetic justice has been done for one of the best new concepts of television.....
