"Nerve": To save Aeryn from a near-fatal injury, Crichton and Chiana must infiltrate a secret Peacekeeper Gammak Base. Though they find an ally on the site, Crichton meets an adversary far more dangerous, more ruthlessly cruel than Crais could ever be--Scorpius, a terrifying Scarren-Sebacean hybrid. And when Scorpius discovers Crichton holds powerful information, he uses the tortuous Aurora Chair to rip the memories from his mind!
"The Hidden Memory": As the crew plans to rescue Crichton, Moya suddenly goes into labor. So while Chiana and Rygel remain aboard to deal with the delivery, Aeryn, Zhaan, and D'Argo wage an assault on the base. Unfortunately, Crichton's rescuers aren't the only visitors to the fortress. Crais has arrived as well! But is the greater danger the double-threat of Crais and Scorpius, or is it Moya's strange and terrifying progeny being born miles above?
Farscape is genre television at its most ambitious, inspired both by the cult appeal of Babylon 5 and the continuing success of the Star Trek franchise, but taking a visual and conceptual leap beyond those shows. Making extensive use of CGI, prosthetics, and state-of-the-art puppetry, courtesy of Jim Henson's Creature Shop, the Farscape concept has a freshness that makes it look and feel completely original. Leading toward the climax of the show's first season, "Nerve" and "The Hidden Memory" make for a bold two-parter in which Crichton is reunited with his Peacekeeper Tech girlfriend, Gilina, and emotions are strained as he infiltrates a Peacekeeper base to find a cure for Aeryn's wound. But the story's most important function is to introduce the dreaded Scorpius, who uses his Aurora Chair torture device to extract what he mistakenly believes is vital knowledge from Crichton. Scorpius, it soon becomes clear, is just not going to go away. --Mark Walker
