Product Description

Farscape: The Best of Season One is a three-DVD set honoring the best of the award-winning series airing on SCI FI Channel. The six episodes selected for this DVD set were personally handpicked as the best by Rockne S. O'Bannon, Farscape's creator and Executive Producer: "Premiere," "DNA Mad Scientist," "A Human Reaction," "Nerve," "The Hidden Memory," and "Family Ties." DVD special features include character profiles, audio commentary by Farscape stars Ben Browder and Claudia Black, notes from each episode from O'Bannon, and the documentary "Making of a Space Opera."

The story: After a wormhole in space sends American astronaut John Crichton to the other end of the universe, he joins a trio of escaped prisoners - Pa'u Zotoh Zhaan, Ka D'Argo and Rygel XVI - who have taken control of their bio-mechanical prison ship, Moya. A Peacekeeper officer, Aeryn Sun, joins them when her commander deems her irreversibly contaminated by the prisoners. The fugitives desperately search for their home worlds while trying to stay one step ahead of Commander Crais and the deadly Peacekeepers.

Farscape: The Best of Season One collects six episodes selected by series creator and executive producer Rockne S. O'Bannon. "Premiere" introduces American astronaut John Crichton (Ben Browder), who is flung into an interstellar prison escape on the other side of the universe and must ally himself with the colorful convicts: D'Argo, a hulking warrior with a fleshy Rastafarian mane; Zhaan, a blue-skinned priest of indeterminate age; fugitive Peacekeeper Aeryn; Rygel, a greedy and troll-like exiled king; and Pilot, the giant insect-like nerve center of their living ship, Moya. The title character of "DNA Mad Scientist" offers them a way home in exchange for a sample of their DNA... and one of Pilot's arms. In "A Human Reaction," Crichton finally gets back to Earth, but with unfortunate results for the rest of Moya's crew. 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. Finally, in "Family Ties," the season ends on a tense cliffhanger as Rygel plots with Scorpius, Crais intervenes unexpectedly, Moya's child turns out to be something of a handful, and Crichton and D'Argo must take a desperate gamble.
