Mind the Baby - S2-E1

Visible crew/equipment: After Crais "humbly" accepts Talyn's offer of the Hand of Friendship, just as the metal tentacle rises up from below the floor before the neural transponder is embedded in Crais, we can see a crew member's hand holding the tentacle at the bottom of the screen.

Out of Their Minds - S2-E9

Visible crew/equipment: After Zhaan has taken control of the Halosian ship, when Zhaan's transmission appears on Moya's clamshell viewer, in the shots facing Rygel, John, and Aeryn (in each others' bodies) we can see the puppeteer, who's wearing a headset, with his right arm up in Rygel's sleeve. Fun to watch.

A Clockwork Nebari - S2-E18

Visible crew/equipment: After Meelak opens the door to Rygel's quarters and asks Crichton why he wants the Hynerian's help, Rygel betrays Chrichton and says, "I don't think the mind cleansing is working," and when John punches Rygel's face, in the close-up we can see the puppeteer's fingers beside Rygel, behind the table.

Beware of Dog - S2-E14

Visible crew/equipment: After John acts out what the word "shoot" means before he and Aeryn release the vorc, it cuts to the wiggly-eared vorc moving down a corridor while Aeryn and John follow behind him, and we can see a crew member's arm holding cables for the moving animatronic vorc, at the left side of the screen.

My Three Crichtons - S2-E10

Visible crew/equipment: When they listen to the sphere's signal to analyze it, in the shots of Rygel, D'Argo, and John, particularly when John asks, "What stopped?" just before the message that only the three Johns hear, we can see the brunette puppeteer with his arm up Rygel's sleeve, at the right side of the screen.

Liars, Guns and Money (1): A Not So Simple Plan - S2-E19

Visible crew/equipment: While Aeryn and John watch the monitors, when it cuts back to Scorpius et al walking in the corridor, just as Akkor says, "She'll be right with you. Please, understand," the camera spins around and the only thing in the hallway is the elevator security station with its round base behind Akkor. Then when Braca delivers blows to Akkor and he collapses, there are two overhead shots and we can see the crew's equipment at the bottom of the screen.

Beware of Dog - S2-E14

Visible crew/equipment: After Aeryn and John kill the parasitic Rygel and hundreds of little parasites, it cuts to the medlab where Rygel is explaining to D'Argo and Chiana what happened to him, and we can see the puppeteer's head behind Rygel. As an aside, earlier when Aeryn grabs parasitic Rygel off Zhaan and throws him, note that Zhaan's arm is under Rygel's robe to control his movements.

More quotes from Farscape

Trivia: Over the course of the four seasons, D'Argo's face mask / make-up changes considerably. First season, his face was a dark beige colour, and his nose was very obviously just stuck on. Three seasons later, his face is brown with a reddish tint, with much rounder features.

Show generally

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?

Socks1000

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.
