Crichton is still searching for a plan to return home after the Varskop-1 was swallowed and thrown on the other side, and there is a Moya ship carrying a group of foreign fugitives from the peacekeepers. Crichton continues to establish intimate relations with prisoners for his scheme.
What Farscape deserves tremendous credit for is being willing to take a giant leap after ten years of other shows-The Next Generation and Deep Space Nine very much included-taking small steps in this direction.
Farscape's Season 1, Episode 9 asks this of its characters, to unsettling results. This is the first episode that really hammers home the point that, while these characters may be protagonists, they are not all heroes.
Farscape somehow took hold of viewers in a very particular way, thanks to clever writing, engaging and frequently complex characters, and a constant thread of the bizarre and off-kilter to keep you riveted.
