Kansas (2) - S4-E12

Visible crew/equipment: After Scorpius tells Braca that the future of Peacekeeper survival depends on him, it cuts back to Earth and when the Sheriff says, "I got the warrant. Let's go search that house," as the car pulls away we can see a nice reflection of a crew member and the reflector screen.

Unrealized Reality (1) - S4-E11

Visible crew/equipment: When Crichton is about to take his last journey into the wormhole (in this episode at least) he pulls down the visor of his helmet. We can see four square and round white lights reflected that are not from the current scene.

Coup By Clam - S4-E10

Visible crew/equipment: At the start, while everyone's eating the buffet in the maintenance bay, after Pilot says, "Moya has not had peaceful rest since we entered the Tormented Space," the head of Rygel's puppeteer is visible at the left side of the screen.

Natural Election - S4-E6

Factual error: Considering that the plant is supposed to secrete an acid that burns through Moya's entire outer hull, when we see the outer shot while the gas is igniting, there is a considerable lack of damage. The plant ate its way from outside the ship, directly into the ship's internal vents and tiers, yet from the outside, the ship looks exactly the same as always. Shouldn't it have shown some sort of erosion or hull breach where the plant entered the ship?

What Was Lost (1): Sacrifice - S4-E2

Continuity mistake: After Oo-Nii tells John that the old woman stole his gun to kill Vella, John looks down at his holster and finds Winona gone. Later while he's shouting for Granny, it keeps cutting to the old woman while she's holding Winona, and after she whispers, "Receive the spirit," it cuts to John and Winona can be seen in the holster on John's leg, but in the next shot Granny still has it.

Bad Timing - S4-E22

Continuity mistake: When John's at Serenity Base, in the shots from inside the pod when Aeryn looks out the window John's standing beside the flag and their long shadows are cast behind them as he looks toward Earth, but when John's on the phone with Jack, in the overhead shots the shadows are being cast in front of him.

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.
