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.
In the mid 23rd Century, the Earth Alliance space station Babylon 5, located in neutral territory, is a major focal point for political intrigue, racial tensions and various wars over the course of five years.
Stem cells, gene therapy, transplants, and cloning have changed the definition of "humanity" in the modern world, but the darker side contains monsters that only few are brave enough to face, because the future lies in their hands.
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
Virginia Hey is the only regular cast member from Farscape (1999)'s original television run that is not in the miniseries (though she is visible for a moment of archive footage during Crichton's "recap flashback"). 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.

I started watching the series only a few months ago and I couldn't be happier to have found it. The series and the mini-series were simply excellent. I am not a big television watcher and I really don't care for sci-fi but this show/movie blows me away. I absolutely love it and that is saying a lot. The plot, effects, actors, & writers are beyond description. It sends you on an roller coaster and has a way of giving you an emotional investment in the lives of these characters. Rarely does a television show leave me craving more as Farscape does. Never has a television show left me wanting to THANK its creators. Give Farscape a try, you won't be sorry.
