Farscape : I Shrink Therefore I Am

February 11, 2015 in Farscape by Firebird

farscapeshrink4

When Moya is raided by bounty hunters working for the Peacekeepers, every crew member is captured except for Crichton and Noranti. The armoured intruders shrink the captives and imprison them inside holding cavities in their torsos – if Crichton harms them, he endangers his friends as well. Finding that Scorpius is also free and on the run, Crichton teams up with him to fight off the menace, unaware that the leader of the bounty hunters has a hidden agenda.

Synopsis

Noranti doesn’t actually contribute much to the story spending most of it in a drug induced coma. Crichton comes up with several creative ways to kill the bounty hunters until only four of them are left.

In the process Scorpius is captured and discovers that the lead bounty hunter is, unknown to his followers, a Scarran.

Crichton tells the other bounty hunters and when one of them goes to check he and the other two are killed by their boss. It’s left to Crichton to take out the Scarran which he does with a battle of shrink rays and a final stomp of his boot.

The episode sees Scorpius almost a member of the crew and discussions about Moya traveling into ‘Tormented Space’.

Farscape : John Quixote

Chiana and Crichton are sucked into a game world ruled over by a virtual Stark, who sends Crichton on a quest to ‘Kiss the Princess’. To escape the game, they are forced to battle old friends and enemies in fantastic guises. Meanwhile, aboard Moya, Scorpius escapes and brings the crew under his control.

Synopsis

Another of the totally weird ones and a good excuse to welcome back a whole raft of departed characters. Obviously there’s Stark who’s bearing a major grudge against Crichton but we also see Peacekeeper tech Gilina, Jool, Crais (as an Ogre) and right near the end Virginia Hey returns as the real Zhaan.

Also thrown into the mix we get a Crichton version of Max Headroom. Bonus geek points and likely a big give away of your age if that means anything to you.

Farscape : Natural Election

January 27, 2015 in Farscape by Firebird

Crichton correctly predicts a wormhole’s appearance near Moya, but simultaneously a giant space plant captures the Leviathan. An attack with D’Argo’s ship only succeeds in sending the plant into Moya’s conduits, making it even more difficult to kill. Eventually, an agent is found that will repel the plant, but it only exists in Scorpius’ cooling rods. In order to save Moya, Crichton will have to place trust in his arch nemesis.

Synposis

A fairly standard ship in peril episode. Sikozu continues to buddy up with Scorpius. Aeryn makes the major mistake of trusting Chiana with a secret, which naturally she blabs to D’Argo who then tells Crichton.

Scorpius’ cooling rods allow him to clear poor Pilot of the invading plant.

But it takes Noranti’s abilities as a chemist combined with Sikozu’s knowledge of Laviathans to find a solution that works for the whole ship.

And finally after taking it in turns proves unworkable the crew hold an election for a permanent captain which D’Argo wins.

Farscape: Promises

Crichton and the crew are reunited on Moya. Crichton finds Aeryn suffering from Heat Delirium and under the care of Scorpius, who wants asylum aboard Moya. Soon after, a giant Lukythian ship appears nearby, and its Captain, Ullom, claims that Aeryn was recently part of a team that assassinated an important Lukythian leader. Ullom offers to heal Aeryn in return for information about the plot. While battling with the notion of trusting Scorpius, Crichton remains unaware that neither Aeryn nor Ullom is telling the whole truth.

Synopsis

I love that Harvey wants Crichton to kill Scorpius

farscapepromises2

but no great surprised as Scorpius has a device which he says can remove Harvey and it seems to work too.

farscapepromises3

Meanwhile the Peacekeepers have come up with a weapon that will kill Moya while leaving her passengers unharmed and Braca sets out to deliver it. Luckily it turns out that Ullom’s ship has chameleon abilities which they use to fool the Peacekeeper missile.

farscapepromises4

Although Aeryn did kill the Lukythian leader it was out of principal not for money. Ullom dies along with his ship.

farscapepromises5

And so we are left with Moya and a full crew on the run with Scorpius as a passenger/prisoner. Sikozu was already an unpopular addition and her apparent friendship with Scorpius only makes that worse. While Crichton is of course happy to have Aeryn back he’s none too thrilled that she does volunteer the fact that she’s pregnant, although at this point it’s not 100% clear that she is, Crichton only has Noranti’s word on that and she’s not exactly the most reliable source.

After a forced landing, the crew is divided by an eloborate trap that leaves Crichton, D’Argo, Noranti and Rygel underground in a lava-filled system of caves. Chiana and Sikozu are left outside, trying to re-activate D’Argo’s ship. Inside, Crichton and the others are hunted down by mercenaries who are not only protected by energy shield belts, but are led by a monster impervious to the fiery lava.
