Natural Election - S4-E6

Corrected entry: We have been told, time and time again, that Chiana is a near perfect liar. It had been her most trusted survival skill for half of her life. Yet, when she is talking to Aeryn about who the father of her baby is (the secret that she had spilled to D'Argo only moments earlier), why is she the most obvious and uncomfortable liar the show has possibly ever seen? And furthermore, Aeryn, as the ex-Peacekeeper, should be a very perceptive person, especially considering she worked with criminals and liars most days. Aeryn should have been able to pick up almost instantly on Chiana's obvious lying.

Phoebe

Correction: First of all, Aeryn is pregnant and not Chiana, and it was Aeryn that asked Chiana to keep a secret. Actually, Chiana's most trusted skill is her sexuality, as shown in the episode "Twice Shy," where each crew member attacked loses their strongest trait. Furthermore, she has been shown to be a horrible liar to the others because she can't keep a secret, mostly when it implicates her. As shown later in the episode, Aeryn telling Chiana was a moment of weakness on her part, and by the end, she had recovered. Aeryn also was a combat pilot and did not deal one on one with anyone but her own regiment or other assigned peacekeepers.

A Prefect Murder - S4-E9

Corrected entry: About a quarter of the way through the episode, three scenes repeat themselves. First Aerun talks to Chricton and says that she's "getting a bad bribe". Then Chricton talks to D'Argo, and is ordered back to the ship because D'Argo wants to show that he has some control. Then Chiana walks in on Sikozu and the Prince. After that, we repeat the Chricton and D'Argo scene, and then, in backwards order, the Chrichton / Aeryn scene - making a highly confusing 15 minutes of bad editing.

Phoebe

Correction: This is deliberate. Each time the scene is repeated it is shown through a different character's point of view and is slightly different. It is not the case of bad editing because the episode is about distorted perceptions, flashbacks and mind control.

I Shrink Therefore I Am - S4-E8

Corrected entry: Noranti floats outside Moya for what is, in Scape time, quite a few hours. If she were floating, untethered, in space for hours, I doubt very much that she would have stayed in "exactly" the same position in "exactly" the same place outside of Moya.

Phoebe

Correction: Moya generates her own gravity field. If Noranti was close enough, it would hold her near Moya.

Family Ties - S1-E22

Visible crew/equipment: After Rygel's transport pod returns to Moya, as the docking bay door slides open, in the shot facing everyone while they have their weapons drawn we can see the bare floor. However, when Aeryn checks Crais for hidden weapons and then as D'Argo approaches him, there's a blue crash mat on the floor. Then it vanishes again.

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.
