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 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 (Farscape "What Was Lost" story arc) 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 millennia 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.

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.....
