In the fourth and final season of FARSCAPE, astronaut John Crichton (Ben Browder) and Aeryn (Claudia Black) end up together while the seeds of an uneasy alliance between Crichton and Scorpius comes to the rescue. Echoes of war begin as the reptilian Scarrans seek the wormhole technology Crichton knows to rule the universe. Featuring the amazing creature effects and puppetry from the Jim Henson Company and a nail-biting series finale, this season sends off one of sci-fi's most innovative shows with a bang.
The journey has never been easy for lost American astronaut John Crichton (Ben Browder), the escaped alien prisoners who are his friends, or their living ship, Moya. And in the third season of FARSCAPE, the ride becomes wilder than ever when powerful issues of love, loyalty, and sacrifice loom large. With strange creatures, bizarre twists, irreverent humor, tragic losses, great loves, and great hopes, this season's story is as broad and weird as the universe itself. Produced in Australia with the incredible talents of Jim Henson's Creature Shop on display, Season 3 of FARSCAPE is like nothing you've seen before!
Astronaut and astrophysicist John Crichton becomes stranded on the other side of the universe when his Farscape module goes through a wormhole. He is taken in by the misfit alien passengers of the sentient ship Moya, a spacecraft that happens to be on the run from the militaristic "Peacekeepers." Unfortunately, while the ship is docked and making repairs, Crichton tangles with a captive Peacekeeper named Aeryn --a beautiful and volatile woman who alerts her captain about the Moya, putting everyone on board in danger.
The second season of FARSCAPE finds John Crichton and the living ship Moya's crew with their hands full and as suspicious of each other as ever. Crichton possesses hidden knowledge that his new nemesis, Scorpious, will stop at nothing to get. Aeryn makes serious emotional revelations, Dargo searches for his prisoner son, and Chiana and Crais form an unlikely bond. Featuring amazing CGI effects, prosthetics, and state-of-the-art puppetry--courtesy of Jim Henson's Creature Shop--and a cliffhanger season finale to boot, this installment firmly establishes FARSCAPE as one of the best sci-fi dramas to hit the small screen.
The Hoobs have run out of Hoobygoop. What do the Peeps have that they can use instead? And more importantly – who makes it?
The crew returns to Moya - in orbit around modern-day Earth - to find Jack and a contingent of Earth dignitaries waiting for them. The aliens are introduced to an amazed and apprehensive public, but soon find life in the public eye difficult. As Crichton tries to readjust to life on Earth, his relationships become strained, especially with Aeryn. Meanwhile, a monstrous assassin sent by Grayza hunts for Crichton, and will stop at nothing to accomplish its mission.
Nothing makes a Hoob laugh like a hoobledangler. And Tiddlypeeps laugh at all sorts of strange things but they don’t don’t find hoobledanglers funny at all. So what would make a Hoob AND a Tiddlypeep laugh?

Now safely back on Moya, Crichton learns of the Scarrans' intention to invade Earth. He feverishly analyzes his wormhole data and comes up with a way to collapse the wormhole to Earth - but the method is not one that he can implement alone. Meanwhile, Braca demands Scorpius be released from Moya and returned safely to his Command Carrier - and Aeryn has a few surprises of her own, including the identity of her baby's father.

After thwarting Crichton's escape plan, Scorpius denies that he's a Scarran spy, and demands Crichton's help to destroy a cavern of vital Scarran flora - claiming it will also provide them with a better means of escape. And while Rygel and Noranti fight an evil Stark, Sikozu must reveal her true colors if they are all to survive.
Moya's crew travels to Katratzi, a Scarran base where Scorpius is being tortured for wormhole information. The base is home to both Kalish and Charrid forces - underlings for the Scarrans. The crew plans to incite a confrontation between these two contingents, hoping this diversion will allow them to free Scorpius, and prevent wormhole knowledge from falling into Scarran hands.
Moya's crew tracks Aeryn to a Scarran Border Station, where the freighter she is imprisoned upon is about to leave for Katratzi, a Scarran base. To keep the ship docked and under quarantine, Noranti gives Rygel a deadly, contagious disease. Though this gives the crew time to come up with a plan to rescue Aeryn, they do not figure on the cunning and ruthlessness of Aeryn's Scarran captor, Jenek.
