Claudia Black, Ben Browder, Gigi Edgley. The Peacekeepers and Scarrans battle over the mind of John Crichton, which contains the knowledge to make wormholes into weapons of mass destruction in this intensely popular sci-fi miniseries written by Rockne S. O'Bannon and David Kemper. 2 DVDs. 2004/color/3 hrs., 2 min/NR/widescreen.
Created at least in part due to popular demand, Farscape: The Peacekeeper Wars will provide some closure to fans who were dismayed by the demise of the popular science fiction television show in 2003 and campaigned mightily to bring it back. Indeed, this miniseries (originally broadcast over two nights on the Sci-Fi Channel) will likely appeal primarily to the Farscape faithful, as the somewhat convoluted storyline may prove baffling to the uninitiated.
A brief bit of backstory explains how John Crichton, an astronaut from Earth, went through a wormhole and ended up on Moya, a living spaceship, with a motley group of aliens, including D'Argo (Anthony Simcoe), Chiana (Gigi Edgley), various puppet characters (designed by the Jim Henson Company), and Aeryn (Claudia Black), Crichton's love interest, who's expecting their first child. As The Peacekeeper Wars begins, our heroes find themselves in the middle of a war-to-end-all-wars between the lizard-like, implacably evil Scarrans and their rivals, the Peacekeepers. Crichton is the lynchpin in all of this, as his knowledge of "wormhole technology" is coveted by all, including his old nemesis Scorpius (Wayne Pygram), who captured and tortured Crichton back in season 1 and with whom Crichton must now form an uneasy alliance against the Scarrans.
Over the course of the three-hour miniseries, we get lots of weird- and cool-looking aliens, some nice sets and special effects, plenty of battles, and lots of portentous talk about the fate of the universe--nothing especially original, but all presented with outstanding production values. There's drama and action, love and betrayal, tragedy and triumph, war and, ultimately, peace, with a suitably spectacular ending (and a nod to Stanley Kubrick's 2001: A Space Odyssey). With a 30-minute "making of" documentary among the DVD special features, The Peacekeeper Wars is a fitting way to end the Farscape saga. --Sam Graham

This is the culmination of the Farscape series. Picture quality is far from best in the DVD version if your spoiled by Bluray, understandable as the series aired on Sci-Fi channel... Read morePublished 27 days ago by Woody

It's pretty damn funny considering an equal amount of peacekeepers died when John fired up his wormhole weapon.

|BluRay or HD-DVD?||
I can't believe that they still haven't bothered putting this out on Blu Ray. I would rebut this in a second if they did. Lionsgate is leaving money on the table.
