I, E.T. - S1-E7

Visible crew/equipment: While on the planet, when Crichton is talking with Lyneea about the military not being very compassionate and Crichton says, "No, militaries rarely are": when it cuts back to Lyneea we can see the shadow from the camera moving on her. (00:27:55)

I, E.T. - S1-E7

Visible crew/equipment: During Moya's attempt to land on the planet's bog-filled surface, in the close-up of Rygel as he begs for somebody to help tie him down, we can see Rygel's puppeteer, who's wearing eyeglasses and a cap, behind Rygel.

I, E.T. - S1-E7

Other mistake: In this episode the family that John and the gang encounter are able to understand him. Yet if the planet has never experienced encounters with alien life forms, this is impossible without translator microbes.


I, E.T. - S1-E7

Continuity mistake: When D'Argo, Aeryn and John start their search for clorium, D'Argo is wearing arm bracers which extend over the palm and back of his hands. After John says, "Pilot said you press this, this and...this. Works just like a VCR, except easier," D'Argo grabs the particle analyzer from John, but in the closeup of the particle analyzer the hands we see are bare, which means it's not D'Argo, then in the next shot D'Argo is still holding the device.

I, E.T. - S1-E7

Visible crew/equipment: After they all take turns peering into the triangular hatchway, Pilot silences the paddac beacon's siren, and when the DRD zooms into the compartment in the shot from within the room we can see a cable behind the DRD.

...Different Destinations - S3-E5

Trivia: While they're waiting for the Venek Horde to attack again, when John's chained to the statue Scorpius/Harvey's playing the harmonica with his feet up on John's lap. Notice that both soles of Scorpius/Harvey's red boots have the name "Andy" written on them. In "Toy Story" Woody's boot has "Andy" written on its sole, and here in John's mind it's to signify John's ownership of the neural clone.

Question: Why is John's Farscape-1 module able to navigate wormholes where some other, more sophisticated craft, notably Peacekeeper Prowlers, cannot without liquifying passengers?


Chosen answer: It's never explained. John mentions a theory that his less technologically developed craft simply interferes with the wormhole less than the "superior" Vipers, but they never make a concrete determination on that point. But we also have to take into account the fact that Moya traverses wormholes with no ill effect as well.
