Unfortunately, this effort --subtitled The Beginning of the End of The Beginning -- is nothing more than a coda tacked on to the end of Peacekeeper Wars. In fact, it begins only MINUTES after the final scene in Peacekeeper Wars, and merely chews away on a few old plots for a while. It reads more like a Deleted Scene from one of Farscape's DVDs than any new story.
BEWARE. SPOILERS FOLLOW:
What do we get with this 'new' story?
Rygel gets his throne back and becomes a wise, but humble despot -- after a short burst of mild Farscape pyrotechnics and a smidgen of crude intrigue -- but we already knew that was going to happen, didn't we? Ho-hum.
A mysterious Black-Cloaked-Critter-With-Red-Eyes is following Crichton around, taking pot-shots at him and Aeryn. Their baby slows the bullets by blinking. Exciting stuff? Ermm ...not really, at least not yet. We're only mildly curious, that's all.
Chiana and Jothee grieve for D'Argo by having lots of sex. Aeryn obsesses (constantly!) about being a "bad" mother, just like Xalax! -- hold me back. Shallow, overcooked, predictable rubbish.
And Scorpius ...the most marvellous 'dark' character ever committed to screen? In this story, Scorpius's character has lost all the subtle ambiguity Wayne Pygram built up during the entire TV series.Read more ›
More Farscape hardcovers are being released in 2010. They are in four parts like this series, so that means these comics are also available individually, too (produced by Boom! Studios. If you want them individually, I recommend ebay.). So far, I've seen the following hardcovers released or available for pre-order, "Strange Detractors," "Gone and Back," "Tangled Roots," and "Red Sky At Morning."(In that order) There are also hardcovers that follow the story line of individual characters, especially D'Argo. There is "D'Argo's Trial," which goes into D'Argo's back story about his wife. There's "D'Argo's Lament" which takes place in season 3 and includes him and Jool on a mission to save the others. "D'Argo's Quest" is also a new hardcover coming out that takes place in season 3, where he is hunting down his wife's killer." Lastly, there is a hardcover coming out following Scorpius after the events in "The Beginning of the End of the Beginning". All these can be found here on Amazon. I'm pretty excited to read them as they become available!

What can I say? This is Farscape which in my opinion was one of the best SciFi shows ever done. This made-for-TV movie, which is outside of the regular seasonal episodes, is well... Read morePublished on December 6, 2013 by Neil Bergman
This is a fantastic way to continue to feed your love of Farscape. While I would love to see the series start up again at least these books give me some kind of filler.Published on February 15, 2013 by jerrybeeman1
