How the heck did I miss it

Hey anyone also a fan of Grimm?

Watching 2013 episode 2/16 "Nameless" I saw the username in an online game was Aeryn Sun

Makes me wonder what other frelling stuff I missed

Best monster to represent Scorpius in D&D/TTRPGs in general?

As arguably the greatest genre villain of all time, Scorpius is a natural model for a villain in such a game. I'm personally torn between either making him a mind flayer or some flavor of draconic/reptilian creature (a bipedal and more 'alien' looking dragon along the lines of Ridley from Metroid, perhaps). The former has that eerie otherness, the capacity and capability for mind-frelling and dominating, and even the penchant for leather, whereas the latter would embody that brutal cunning that often serves in contrast to his intellectual poise and restraint, but rises to the surface when truly tested. But what might you lot think? I would elect not to play up his hybrid nature, since that was so beautifully done and felt unique to the original character, and I don't just want to lazily copy the whole concept, so I've dismissed notions like simply going with a half-orc or the like.

Fanfiction Search

Hey guys, a few years back, before Covid, I read a Farscape fanfic. It involved Crightoj and Scorpius stranded together on a desert planet or something and they had to work together to survive. It was very long and I didn't read on sites like ff.net or Ao3. I remember there were fanfic authors like Alara Rogers and ScorpSik fics on the site too. I'd love to read it again but I can't seem to find it. I searched on TerraFirmasite already. Could anyone help please?

Crichtons children

So do you guys think that John ever told his son about his sister on the royal planet? Sure she won't be born for 78 cycles but hey they could technically meet.

That ending...

I feel for everyone that was there for Farscapes ending. Please no spoilers because I'm late to the party and still have to find a way to watch the Peacekeeper Wars... But anyone around at the time Seasons 4 ended... I feel for you. What a horrible way to end the series.

I know they thought there was going to be a season 5. Just wanted to share how I feel for you.

A Look Back At Farscape interview and 25th anniversary marathon playing soon

A Look Back At Farscape With Brian Henson And Rockne S. O'Bannon, Interviewed By Adam Savage will be playing on Shout TV at 3 different times and channel, that I could find, if you have missed it like I have.

The first one is playing Monday at 3:03 am Eastern Daylight Saving Time on the Non-Stop 90s channel, second one also Monday at 3:38 am on the Farscape channel and third one on Tuesday at 2 am on the ShoutTV channel. https://watch.shout-tv.com/section/LIVE%20CHANNELS

All three channels will have the 25th anniversary marathon that was streamed around 2 pm EDST on Monday. I don't know if they will feature the small interviews of Brian Hanson, Ben Browder and Gigi Edgley before the episodes.

I'd like to thank u/ShoutStudios for mentionning the contest two days ago I would not have found this otherwise.

Small edit, small interviews with Brian Henson.

Ok a little one question quiz

Who is this?

I was surprised when I found out why his face was so familiar and my mind kept ringing farscape alarm bells!

Post answers as a spoiler if you can, but it's just a bit of fun so don't worry if you don't know how😁👍

Stark questions

I’m a new fan of this incredible show. On season 3 at the moment, and it’s one of the episodes that follows the Talyn crew after Chricton was twinned.

I’m having trouble figuring out exactly what Stark’s powers are on this show. Maybe I haven’t been following it closely enough, and perhaps that’s my fault, but I don’t feel like they’ve really established what his powers are in a clear way. I don’t understand what the bright light on his face does besides drive some needed plot mechanic of the episode, or why he can seemingly sometimes sense ethereal beings/dissolve and come back. He’s the only character I could do without, honestly, because I genuinely don’t understand him.

Can anyone explain what it is he can do, exactly? I would prefer no spoilers for late-season 3 or season 4 if possible.

I feel like every other character on the show has a set of rules and strengths/weaknesses that are firmly established early on. They’re all unique and varied, colorfully written and acted. But I don’t have that same sense with Stark. He’s just kind of an unhinged, nervous key that unlocks whatever proverbial door they need him to open that episode.

Am I totally off base with this? (That’s fine if I am!) What does the fanbase generally think of this character?

Are the comics worth it?

Basically the title. I just finished a re-watch of the whole series and peacekeeper war and I'm wondering if the comics are worth getting into or if I should just leave it at that. What does the community think?

Edit : thanks for all the answers. I guess I'll check them out if I run across them but it sounds like they aren't exactly anything to write home about so I think for the time being I'm just going to move on to other Sci fi universes.

What do I watch now?

I've lost count as to how many times I've rewatched the series and the PK Wars. What do I watch next? Also open to audiobooks and podcasts.

John and Aeryns storyarch is hard to match or surpass and filling that gaping hole after it's all over AGAIN...is dang near impossible. Help.

Am I wrong thinking that Stark was the best dressed character in the entire series?

What age should I indoctrinate my kids to this awesomeness

Hi, my daughter has been getting more into shows I like and I was debating whether there is anything in the show that would prevent me from having an eleven year old watch it. It's been a while since I watched the whole way through.

Annual Farscape Rewatch

I was curious about everyone’s annual viewing and what time of year they watch. For me, I’ve gotten into the habit of watching it right after Halloween and finish between the holidays.

As an afterthought, are there any annual community rewatch events?
