Cast : David Franklin (Lt. Braca)

The Story : Crichton, Aeryn and D'Argo have narrowly escaped death, but now find themselves stranded in an asteroid field. Ironically the person who saved their lives is Crais, who is nearby in Talyn learning from Aeryn how to control the young Leviathan—the only thing Aeryn could offer in return for their lives. When Moya returns to the asteroid field to look for her offspring, and Crichton decides to remove Crais from control of Talyn, the events set in train finally give Scorpius the chance he's been waiting for to recapture Crichton.

The Story : Having heard stories about another Luxan, D'Argo drags the others on a search that ends when he comes across an old, dying Luxan. However, she also happens to be an Orican—a Luxan holy woman, and she wants D'Argo to help her die. D'Argo has no choice but to take part in a death ritual, but as he helps her cross to the next realm, Nilaam sees a chance to alter her fate. Changing the ritual, Nilaam, instead of dying, emerges as a beautiful young Luxan. As far as she is concerned she has used what she thought was D'Argo's spiritual energy to regenerate and give herself a second life. However, it soon becomes clear that the energy she has used was not from D'Argo, but from Moya, and the consequences for the living ship are catastrophic.

Chiana has decided to take part in a terrifying local ritual which involves jumping off a cliff into a 300-foot chasm, your fall cushioned only by sound waves that are created by shouting as you descend. But if you don't shout correctly, you die. For Chiana, it is a way to prove to herself she is still alive and can go on without her brother. But Crichton can't understand why Chiana wants to jump and when he can't talk her around he tries kidnapping her. Crichton must learn that there is nothing he can do, Chiana needs to work it out on her own and he needs to let her.

26 - Crackers Don't Matter

Director : Ian Watson
Writing credits : Justin Monjo
Cast : Danny Adcock (T'raltixx)

The Story : The crew returns from a Commerce Planet with a load of crackers and a meek alien called Traltixx, who promises he can alter Moya's electromagnetics to make her untraceable. Crichton is skeptical; it seems too good to be true. But he is soon proved wrong when Traltixx demonstrates his machine on Crichton's Module, making it disappear before their eyes. As they travel to his transformation yards to get a device fitted to Moya, they must travel through the Five Pulsars that Traltixx warns may have an adverse effect on them. As they pass through the pulsars an intense paranoia affects the crew. They start convincing themselves and each other that their fellow shipmates are conspiring against them. It starts off with petty squabbles over the crackers but soon escalates with D'Argo brutally force-feeding Rygel and Crichton opening fire first on D'Argo and then on Aeryn. While the crew are preoccupied, Traltixx starts to take over Moya, rewiring and rerouting power to create an intense light chamber that makes the ship start to glow from the inside. As the light increases, so does Traltixx's strength. Crichton must fight against his own paranoid delusions to work out what Traltixx is doing and how to stop him.

The rest of the crew want some answers but Aeryn is not happy to re-visit her past—especially her relationship with Velorek, the man charged with forcibly bonding a new Pilot to Moya. Pilot too has memories that he would prefer not to uncover, and refuses to communicate with the crew. Crichton and Aeryn finally break through to talk to Pilot, and he is able to admit his own complicity in the demise of his predecessor, and his overwhelming desire to bond properly with his beloved Moya.

Original title : Picture If You Will
First Aired : 21.04.2000 (USA) 31.07.2000 (UK) 27.04.2001 (FRANCE)
Director : Andrew Prowse
Writing credits : Peter Neale
Cast : Chris Haywood (Maldis & Kyvan)

The Story : Chiana returns to Moya with a fortune-telling portrait she picked up from a passing trader. The crew watch in horror as the portrait correctly predicts that Chiana will break her leg—and even worse, be burnt to death. As the crew, one by one, meet their death as foretold in the portrait, Zhaan realizes her old foe Maldis, an evil sorcerer, is behind the terrifying goings-on. He is trying to re-corporealise and is feeding on the fears of Crichton, D'Argo, Chiana and especially Zhaan. Zhaan warns Crichton that he may be called upon to trust her implicitly at a crucial moment. Zhaan then kills them both and they pass into Maldis's realm. As his strength grows, Maldis is able to create an exitway from the painting into Moya. But as he does, Zhaan makes her move and, with Pilot and Aeryn's help, weakens his grip enough to allow the crew to escape from the painting and destroy Maldis.

First Aired : 16.06.2000 (USA) 07.08.2000 (UK) 04.05.2001 (FRANCE)
Director : Rowan Woods
Writing credits : Gabrielle Stanton & Harry Werksman, Jr.
Cast : John Brumpton (B'Sogg), Justine Saunders (Altana), Rob Carlton (Vija), Hunter Perske (Temmon), Gavin Robins (Keedva)

The Story : The crew, starving and desperate, head for a mining colony within a giant Budong carcass. To get supplies, they must contend with B'Sogg, the camp's overlord, who has his eye on Chiana. Zhaan, worst affected by the lack of food, needs meat to survive a Delvian defense response which makes her sprout buds of toxic pollen. The crew go to work, in their different ways, to get meat for Zhaan. Chiana works on B'Sogg, offering herself in return for his help. Rygel tries his hand at the local gambling tables, but loses badly to the resident hustlers. D'Argo and Altana, an old friend of Chiana's, go crystal mining within the carcass. When Altana is attacked and killed by the Keedva, a vicious creature that roams the mining tunnels, Crichton soon discovers that B'Sogg, the colony's self-styled Keedva slayer, is in fact controlling the creature. B'Sogg unleashes the Keedva on an unarmed Crichton, leaving him to kill or be killed.

30 - Dream a Little Dream

Original title : Dream a Little Dream
First Aired : 23.06.2000 (USA) 14.08.2000 (UK) 11.05.2001 (FRANCE)
Director : Ian Watson
Writing credits : Steven Rae
Cast : Steve Jacobs (Ja Rhumann), Sandy Gore (Judge), Simone Kessell (Finzzi), Marin Mimica (Dersch), Peter Kowitz (Tarr), Jeremy Callaghan (Bartender)

The Story : Zhaan, still wracked by guilt-ridden nightmares, relates to Crichton what happened to them after they starbursted away from the burning Gammak Base, abandoning Crichton, Aeryn and D'Argo to an unknown fate. While desperately searching for news of their friends, Zhaan, Chiana and Rygel found themselves on the planet Litigara - a world where lawyers comprise ninety percent of the population. After being framed for a minor offence, Zhaan was jailed—a major complication given that Pilot was already having difficulty stopping Moya from StarBursting away to look for Talyn. Zhaan was unwittingly drawn further into the ugly domestic politics of Litigara when she was once again framed for a crime. But this time it was murder. With Moya champing at the bit to get away, it fell to Chiana and Rygel to defend Zhaan: a seemingly impossible task given the Byzantine laws of the Litigaran world.
Note : aka "Re: Union". This episode was originally the season premiere, but was held back and reworked to be a flashback episode.

31 - Out of Their Minds

Original title : Out of Their Minds
First Aired : 07.07.2000 (USA) 04.09.2000 (UK) 18.05.2001 (FRANCE)
Director : Ian Watson
Writing credits : Michael Cassutt
Cast : Dominique Sweeny (Yoz), Angie Milliken (Voice of Yoz), Thomas Holesgrove (Tak), Nicholas McKay (Voice of Tak)

The Story : Moya is under sudden attack—an alien ship has locked weapons, is about to fire and is not listening to any white flag-waving messages. Crichton and the others are jolted from sleep and race from their rooms, while Zhaan flies out to the enemy ship to negotiate. On the very good assumption that she'll fail, D'Argo and the rest work on reactivating the defence shield they purloined from the Peacekeepers. They're right to try, as Zhaan can't stop the aliens from firing—and firing when the shield is only barely working. It is just powerful enough to prevent Moya from being destroyed. But the combination of weapons fire and a fluctuating, weak shield produces the very oddest of effects. For after the opening salvo, all of the crew on Moya find that they have swapped bodies...

32 - My Three Crichtons

Original title : My Three Crichtons
First Aired : 14.07.2000 (USA) 02.10.2000 (UK) 01.06.2001 (FRANCE)
Director : Catherine Millar
Writing credits : Grant McAloon From a Story by Gabrielle Stanton & Harry Werksman, Jr.
Cast : Lani Tupu (Voice of Pilot) , Matthew Le Nevez (Crichton Double)

The Story : An energy sphere penetrates Moya and roams the tiers until it finds Crichton. It absorbs him, even while Aeryn fires at it. Her firing seems to do some damage, though, as the sphere balloons out through the decking and eventually ejects Crichton. And then it ejects Crichton. And again. There are now three versions of Crichton on Moya —one as we know him, one as a super-evolved intelligent Crichton and one as a caveman throwback. The sphere tells the Crichtons that it is a research device gathering samples and that in this case the sample it wants is Crichton. But only one of him: it doesn't care which. But if it doesn't get one of the three of him it will take them all—the three Crichtons, Moya and everybody aboard.

33 - Look at the Princess (part 1): A Kiss is But a Kiss

Original title : Look at the Princess (part 1): A Kiss is But a Kiss
First Aired : 21.07.2000 (USA) 11.09.2000 (UK) 08.06.2001 (FRANCE)
Director : Andrew Prowse & Tony Tilse
Writing credits : David Kemper
Cast : Matt Day (Tyno), Tina Bursill (Novia), Felix Williamson (Clavor), Felicity Price (Princess Katralla), Bianca Chiminello (Jena), Aaron Cash (Dregon), Gavin Robins (Cargn), Jonathan Hardy (Kahaynu), Francesca Buller (ro-Na)

The Story : Crichton, Aeryn, Rygel, D'Argo, and Chiana are on a planet about to crown their new monarch. The problem is, the Princess Katralla, cannot ascend unless she finds a mate genetically compatible to her poisoned DNA. Her brother, Prince Clavor, is over his head in a bargain with the Scarran Diplomat, Sastaretski Cargn, to ascend the throne in her place... whatever the cost. Enter Crichton, unawares of the game of thrones taking place around him. Spurned by Aeryn (again), he takes to the native culture of testing his genetic compatibility with the local women, which is a sort of kissing litmus test. The trouble starts when he kisses the princess and is found to be the only person ever to be compatible with her which could save the monarchy.
Note : Trapped on the planet, Crichton is forced to make a decision: marry the princess or be turned over to Scorpius, who has been pursuing Crichton across the galaxy. One of the many drawbacks to being crowned is that he will have to spend eighty cycles as a statue, absorbing knowledge of the state's parliament until it is time for he and his wife to rule.

34 - Look at the Princess (part 2): I Do, I Think

Original title : Look at the Princess (part 2): I Do, I Think
First Aired : 28.07.2000 (USA) 18.09.2000 (UK) 15.06.2001 (FRANCE)
Director : Andrew Prowse & Tony Tilse
Writing credits : David Kemper
Cast : Matt Day (Tyno), Tina Bursill (Novia), Felix Williamson (Clavor), Felicity Price (Princess Katralla), Bianca Chiminello (Jena), Aaron Cash (Dregon), Thomas Holesgrove (Cargn), Jonathan Hardy (Kahaynu), Francesca Buller (ro-Na)

The Story : Rescued from an assassination attempt by Prince Clavor's fiance Jena. Crichton learns that she is a Peacekeeper agent, who mistakenly assumes he is one too. He gets away to confront Clavor about the attack. It's a bad move. Tyno believes Clavor ordered the attack but without evidence Crichton's standing is falling rapidly. Previously he'd have loved that, it would mean he could escape without marrying the princess but now Moya's vanished and the only person waiting for him offworld is Scorpius. While Rygel negotiates for greater security on Crichton and Scorpius plots against him, Moya's found herself being probed by the Builders—the aliens who created her. They're not best pleased, either, at her having developed into something that can give birth to armed battlecruisers. The Builders are peaceful, you can see their point. But their point now is to decommission Moya—and that means death for her, for Pilot and for Zhaan. There's little hope for any of them and Crichton faces the knowledge that even if he can survive the next few hours, his best possible result is being married—and turned into a statue for eighty years.

The Story : John Crichton faces eighty years as a statue. That is, until the Scarran Cargn decapitates the statue and drops the head into a vat of acid. He can be put back together, but his head is found by Scorpius who refuses to surrender it. Meanwhile, Aeryn goes rock-climbing with Dregon to try to take her mind off Crichton's marriage. She manages, too, but only when an accident sends them both tumbling to the ground. Far away from the Royal planet, Zhaan is faced with Moya being decommissioned by the Builders and the threat of dying in the cold, airless ship. Her only chance of escape is to get John's Farscape 1 module to work. With the Empress ordering the death of all aliens over the decapitation of John's statue, D'Argo finds his only option is to join forces with Scorpius if he is to survive.

Director : Tony Tilse
Writing credits : Naren Shankar
Cast : Wayne Pygram (Scorpius)

The Story : For once the crew on Moya have plenty of food after bartering successfully on a commerce planet. Unfortunately, they are warned that the food may be carrying a parasite—and one that won't see much difference between the food and the crew. D'Argo and Chiana find a solution, though, when they buy a parasite killer, a small cute alien called a Vorc. But while they're convinced the Vorc is the solution, they're not sure there is a parasite yet and there's always the chance that they've misunderstood what the Vorc is for. That becomes especially likely when Crichton reports seeing a grotesque hunter/killer beast on Moya at the time the Vorc disappears. Only, Crichton's been seeing a lot of things lately and no one's too sure whether they should believe him or not.

41 - Liars, Guns and Money (part 1): A Not So Simple Plan

Original title : Liars, Guns and Money (part 1): A Not So Simple Plan
First Aired : 04.12.2000 (UK) 05.01.2001 (USA) 03.08.2001 (FRANCE)
Director : Andrew Prowse
Writing credits : Grant MacAloon
Cast : Paul Goddard (Stark), David Franklin (Lt. Braca), Claudia Karvan (Natira), Matthew Newton (Jothee), Adrian Brown (Gan), Jennifer Fisher (PK Nurse)

The Story : Stark returns from the dead with a plan to rescue D'Argo's son Jothee from the Slave Traders. Stark wants the crew of Moya to help him rob a Shadow Depository - a storage facility for ill-gotten gains - and use the stolen loot to purchase the lot of slaves that contains Jothee. D'Argo, furious when the others refuse to agree to Stark's crazy-sounding plan, takes matters into his own hands and heads for the Depository. Crichton and Aeryn follow him down, hoping to stop him from doing anything foolish, but arrive just in time to see D'Argo taken into custody after he uses a secret access code to enter a supposedly secure area. Back on Moya, Crichton and Aeryn are furious that Stark has manipulated them into helping him rob the Depository; Stark gave D'Argo the code to force the Depository to change its codes after the security breach and unknowingly allow Stark to hack into the Depository's systems at that time. But with D'Argo captured, Moya's crew has no choice but to go along with Stark's plan. Zhaan masquerades as a bad-assed criminal; Crichton, Chiana, and Aeryn act as her bodyguards. All looks like it's going to plan - until Scorpius arrives at the Depository. Crichton, still haunted by hallucinatory flashes of Scorpius, accuses Stark of knowing it was Scorpius' loot they were planning to steal. Stark blithely admits this, but refuses to abort the plan despite Scorpius' presence. In a final showdown with Scorpius, Crichton learns why he has been experiencing flashes of him; back on Moya, the others celebrate the successful heist - unaware that the loot is not quite what it seems.
