Astronaut John Crichton attempts to use the Earth's atmosphere to propel his ship, Farscape 1, at great speeds across the solar system. He went much further though and was sucked down a wormhole to a distant part of the galaxy and into the middle of a battle. He is rescued by a group of escaping prisoners and taken aboard their living ship. As the years went by, Crichton has made enemies, powerful and dangerous enemies. On his journey to find a way back home, he freed other captives who became part of the crew on Moya.
The journey has never been easy for lost American astronaut John Crichton, the escaped alien prisoners who are his friends, or their living ship, Moya. And in the third season the ride becomes wilder than ever when powerful issues of love, loyalty, and sacrifice loom large.
In season four, astronaut John Crichton and Aeryn 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.
Season two 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.
Newly engaged and expectant parents John Crichton and Aeryn Sun have been chased around the galaxy and have fallen in love, and now all they want is for their baby to be born and live in peace. However, they will first have to survive an all-out galactic war between the Scarrans and the Peacekeepers as well as the myriad outlandish and unexpected surprises.
As season one begins, 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.
